    Hey all, Very sorry if this is a repeat thread, I searched for one that asked about this and couldn't find anything, just a very quick question. Is there a way to change the oil life Indicator %? I would prefer to look into changing my oil when it's around 20% and I forget to actually look to...

    HI All. Just picked up my first Cruze about a week and a half ago. Super excited. Always liked the car just never quite found the right deal to pull the trigger on. I bought an 11 ECO Manual. Black Granite Metallic and for the 60 miles or so that I have driven it, I think I gonna love it. I have...

    Chinese market Orlando Redline edition.....It's same length as a Gen2 Cruze sedan. Can fit SEVEN persons..(small ones I guess...But still.) something like 170hp, and available with a manual trans too! Give it 200+HP, put brembos on it, and make it $27,500. I'll be first in line.

    How many miles are you getting out of your factory Goodyear Assurance LRR tires? I don't expect factory tires to go much past 30k miles or so and don't think much of Goodyear tires in general, so I'm very surprised mine have gone 56k miles and still have life left. It's almost tire time. Not...
  5. Gen1 Diesel Technical Discussion
    Yesterday I had an interesting thing happen and I wanted to share. To set the stage, I drive at least 110 miles round trip daily for work and the drive is mostly highway. I am very particular about the maintenance on my CTD. I have been noticing my CTD seems to not be as responsive as it used to...
  6. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I'm about 5000 miles from rolling over 100k and I keep hearing that I'll get a 'change timing belt' alarm when I do. But I'm just wondering if anyone has gone longer and not experienced any problems? or has had a failure because they went longer? I have only experienced one timing belt failure...
  7. Gen1 Service Issues
    Hello all, I'm posting on behalf of my fiancee, she has a 2015 Chevy Cruze that she bought brand new from the dealer, this car currently has about 65,000 miles on it. The thing is this car has been giving her problems since it had like 3k miles on it which I believe still has not been...
  8. Gen1 Diesel Technical Discussion
    For whatever reason, I can't seem to search the forums here at work (just get blank results), so this may have already been asked before but anyway.... Driving into work this morning, around 1.5 miles from our house, I was following my wife to work (we work at the same place, but take two cars...

    Hello my 1.4t has just reached 157.000 miles.. I plan to go on ong road trip... going over the car I came across the fuel pump..I know these motors and their brushes an wear or... pump is not cheap and dropping the tank is a pain... On my car there is no fuel pump module so the pump runs full...

    I got tired of paying $80 for an oil change at my local oil service. They charge the full price even though I furnished the Mobil 1 oil and of course the filter. So a week ago I went ahead and changed the oil myself. Changing the oil was pretty straight forward no issues. had to put the car...
  11. Gen1 Powertrain
    I have always changed the oil and filter when the DIC says so (around 5-15% left). I always use full synthetic (not a blend) and a quality filter (non-Fram, lol). I estimate I get ~6-7k between changes. I recently found an “extended life” filter. It says it should last “15,000 if used with...
  12. Gen2 Diesel General Discussion
    Hi everyone, I am a new member. I am currently on my second cruze and heavily weighing the decision to buy a new diesel. I previously had a 2012 Cruze I bought new, had no problems. I bought a new 2015 Cruze 2.5 years ago, been a pretty good car. At around 10k miles my power steering went...
  13. Gen1 Powertrain
    Changed my oil about 3 weeks ago and reset the oil life indicator on my first generation Cruze. I haven’t driven the car since the oil change until today because I have another vehicle I drive daily. Well I drove only about 7 or so miles and the oil life indicator dropped 5 percent to 95...

    well so far ive owned my cruze a day shy of 2 weeks and I love it theres only 2 things I don't like about it 1: I thought mine was an off white but it turns out to be like a beige or dull gold so don't know a good color scheme to go with and 2: Ive never seen a turbo and the manifold as a single...
  15. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    We recently bought my wife a 2015 Cruze LT w/ Turbo. This is the first time I've delt with a car that has the cartridge style oil filter, I'm used to the canister style. I'm thinking about using an extended life synthetic oil with this car but it seems like there aren't many extended life oil...

    My wife has her car get to 20% oil life about 3000-4000KM faster than my Cruze. I could understand a little difference, but that is major. She actually has the longer commute than I do. Her life will get to 0% even before the KM total for her next recommended maintenance while I can go 3-4k...

    Hey Everyone, So I feel really stupid. My foglights aren't working at all (The light come's on on the dash when I 'turn them on' but they don't actually turn on) so I am troubleshooting as best I can and I am starting by replacing the bulbs. Since I am extremely picky I need to have the same...
  18. Gen2 Service Issues
    Hey can someone lend me some info ? Does the oil notice thing that tell oil life count time or does it actually have filter that it reads for dirt? (the salesman said that) AND does this new oil look clean after a change on stick or still sorta dirty? Im having a terrible time w/ my dealer...

    So have a 2011 Cruze and had it since 2010. Still had not replaced the headlight bulbs and they still work. I'm impress on how long these bulb last even tho they reduce the output.
