    First Impressions for my Cuze Hatchback Today I picked up my 2018 Cruze Hatchabck LS, silver-metalic. I have only driven it for about 20 minutes, so here are some real early, early impressions: Radio: Pretty impressed by the sound, for being stock. I also do like the improved display from past...

    I wanted to post some impressions of the 9 speed auto now that I have a few miles under my belt on it. I feel like the shift logic could use some improving in that it tends to hold a lower gear longer than I think it should. For example it will not shift to 7th gear below 30 mph. Once you...
  3. Fuel Economy
    It's not my intent to start a thread for or against ethanol fuels. I don't want to debate what you may have read, or the food supply, or other stories of ethanol. I want to discuss ethanol E10 and E15 in a 1.4L turbo without increased injectors and with a stock tune. Is it equal to mid grade...

    I've owned other new cars, and other cars in this segment, and when our brand new acadia, after constantly fighting with the dealership for 7 months just to have it still not reliable and working right, I decided to buy a car I could drive. The car it's unfortunately technically replacing is a...

    I just passed 5,000 miles yesterday on my Silver, 6 Speed Cruze so wanted to post up some things I like, and probably more things I wish the car had. Fuel mileage is great. I've filled up 8 times so far, averaging a little over 52 MPG's with about 80/20 highway/city. Highway driving, I...

    Whelp. Already took a sawsall to the new hatch. Install was easy, exactly as shown in the instructions and with a car less than a month old everything slid in and out nicely. The pipe, and tip were packaged very nicely but the clamp was a little mangled. I was able to get the clamp on the pipe...

    Hello guys, let me share my impressions after drive testing the Cuze diesel, 1.6 with MT. I drove the car in the city (80%) and on highway for a couple hours. I plan(ed) to get this car so I paid attention to details. Below are my impressions: The good: - Cruise control stays engaged...

    I picked up my 2017 Summit White with a manual transmission last Saturday. It had to be brought in from another dealer, so I started with 305 miles on it. I have around 750 miles on it tonight. I'm a VW TDI refugee. My 2009 Jetta was my favorite car and I hated to part with it, but it made the...

    Currently have a 2005 Malibu LS V6. Looking to change it to secondary car status in about a year or so and probably purchase a 2015 or 2016 limited cruze as a primary car. Anyone owned both Malibu and Cruze? Biggest questions I have are fuel economy and reliability? Hoping for improved fuel...

    So, this is coming from someone who has put 200K+ miles on a 2014 Diesel, so it's pretty much a direct comparison. I found an LT with the leather package and the sun/sound package on it, MSRP was $29K-ish. I will just list off my impressions as I think of them. Pros: - Nice smelling...

    I decided this afternoon to test drive a 17 Premier thought I would share initial impressions. Car listed for 28,205 positive was very impressed how well this car drove, comfortable and liked layout inside. Apple car play loved it, heated steering wheel was very nice, quiet inside, much better...

    My poor ol' heap must be replaced soon. Cruze is on my short list. Most liked features are quietness & solidity, adequate to good road manners, and the availability of decent manual transmissions. I do not want an automatic, will buy a manual. If not a Cruze, then something else. IMO...

    I've been driving a '16 1LT (1.4 automatic) for the past 5 days as my 11 eco MT is getting some repairs done after hitting a lousey raccoon. Some impressions... 1. Slightly quieter than my 11 eco 2. Seat side-bolstering is significantly less, or at least angled outwards more to fit our girthy...
  14. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    I posted this in the general section by accident but I wanted to post it here since I know a lot of us CTD folks only visit this part of the forum..... Late last week I decided to take the plunge and purchase a tuner for my 2015 CTD. I did as much research as I thought possible and ruled the...

    Late last week I decided to take the plunge and purchase a tuner for my 2015 CTD. I did as much research as I thought possible and ruled the Trifecta Tune out bc of reports here of uneven throttle response and an overall uneven power delivery. My goal for car is not to try to make it a "race...

    Let's hear it. Post any pictures or videos you've taken and your impressions/feedback/reflections of this meet. I'll share mine in a bit, but I figured I would get this thread kicked off first.
  17. Gen1 Powertrain
    This will probably eventually become a more official 'review' or write-up once I have more time on the new programming but I wanted to post a quick write-up on my first impressions after having the the tune installed for one week. Hope Trifecta/BNR/Cruzetalk mods are okay with me posting this...

    Swapped out my 16" Firestone FR710 for some Conti Pure Contact (EcoPlus LRR version) tires earlier this week, and now have ~100 or so miles driving on them. The Firestones are an "S" rated tire (yuck); I sprung for the "V" rated Contis for a stiffer sidewall and more cornering ability. I am...
  19. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    After months as a lurker reading virtually every diesel post on this forum I finally purchased a Summit White Cruze Diesel in April. Now, after reaching 5,000 miles on the odometer I thought it was time to add a little to the discussion. After putting 120,000 miles on a Toyota Corolla, I liked...
