    So, every time I do an oil change and reset the OLM, it goes down to 98% within minutes. Any ideas why?? Sent from AutoGuide.com Free App

    Anybody change their front disk pads yet? when you did; did you have the rotors turned, buy new ones or just leave them status quo? I have been looking thru my wheels at my rotors and with 40 K on my car, contemplating pad replacement and what to do with the rotors: they look a little ? not...

    My previous Cruze was having some transmission issues and my mother and I ended up taking the car in on a weekday for warranty work (out of the norm for us). While we were waiting we thought about getting a new 2014 since this would be the last iteration without that godawful front fascia. We...

    Here is the data from my little game I play with the % Remaining Oil Life Monitor & what I discovered. For Oil change 1, I didn't keep track in groups of 5%, so it is not posted. To me it looks like the computer uses a cyclical program based on miles driven ONLY in making it drop each 5%...

    In early spring, I put my Cruze into storage for 13 weeks. It was not driven or even started up during the storage period. When I put it on the road last month, the Oil Life Monitor (OLM) dropped significantly, to the tune of 24% Life Expectancy-almost 2% per week-all while the engine was never...

    I have not checked my pads for @ 5000 miles but how long have your front disc pads lasted in mainly city driving. I am interested in cars with the disc drum set up. It is better after I adjust the rear drums I am at 32K and thinking about replacing pads? I have been feeling that my braking...

    Please read my post in Service Issues "Could have been killed" and tell me what I should do in this case. Some how just getting the car fixed after something as bad as this just doesn't seem good enough.

    Figured this might help some people as winter begins to wind down... I use about 4-6oz of this stuff a week and will probably switch over to the grey bottle in 1.5 months or so when nights begin to stay above freezing most of the time. I am running low on the stuff and was trying to figure out...

    Finally took possession last night of my new diesel Cruze. Loving it so far. A n issue I can't seem to resolve is how you clear the remaining oil life in the DIC. I've set it to clear, answered yes to clear, but it just doesn't do it. Anything I'm missing? I got the car with just over 200 miles...

    I'm new to a car that monitors it's own oil life %. I'm also new to a car that says you only need an oil change every 7,500 miles. Is this oil life % accurate? Like, are there actually sensors or something that monitors the oil? Or does it just count down to the next 7,500 mile mark? On top...

    What is it if any oil shelf life.? I have some motor oil that is about three years old and would like to know if can use it.

    That it just hit now. Checked the oil, still at the full mark and would called the color a medium tan. Ha, with the recent snow, sub-zero temperatures and the underneath of the car loaded with road salt. Think this one time will wait a couple of more weeks.

    So, I have been puzzling over this for some time and I finally figured it out. The fuel filter life in the DIC is set to 1000 Gallons of fuel used. Here are a couple pics you can use to validate my math.

    Hey guys, so here's my mixed up post that has a little bit of everything in it... First! Trifecta Tune: For anyone who has ordered from BNR and you are still waiting on your data log to come in, check your junk mail folder.... Mine was sitting there for a while. More... Prior to ordering my...

    Hey all, I just got my 2011 chevy cruze eco with 6m. I traded in my 07 pathfinder for it to get better gas mileage, and am very happy! I love this car. Still getting a little used to the shift points, but im figuring out. Anyways, I have some fog lights and a K&N filter coming in and once they...

    Yup, I really did it! I just picked up number three. As you can see from my avatar or my garage, I did own a red 2012 and a white 2012. Now the white one is gone. In its place is a 2013 LT/RS. Love this car and finally got rid of the 1.8 issues we were having. Life is good now.........:)

    My OLM is at 90% and I have 1k plus miles on my car since oil change. This means I'm going to get a lot of miles per change out of my oil. I took notice that the filter on this car is kinda cheapy looking. Since the filter is on top of the motor and easy/cheap to change...Should I change it at 5...

    Without going into details or specifics... Today I was driving my 2012 eco home from work (Seattle metro area), and I got t-boned by a much heavier luxury car at about 40-45 mph. I slid sideways across several lanes of traffic over 100 feet with the direct impact on my driver side door and...

    Yesterday morning I was cutoff by a transport truck on the highway. With no place to go I was forced onto the shoulder...hit the gravel and lost control. I went through the grass median, up the other side into oncoming lanes...veered back to the right, through the median again and up the side...

    Those of you who have made a headlight harness, how are your headlight bulbs holding up? In addition, what bulbs are they, how long have they been in, and how do you like them?
