  1. General Discussion
    I had a 2013 LTZ RS, Black that was one of my favorite cars. I sold it when I decided to get a truck. When my son was in college, we bought a used 2013 LT that has been a great car. Problem is he is not a car person or mechanically inclined and when he has a problem I get the call and try to...

    Hi, I purchased a 2012 Chevy Cruze in 2017 cash down. I thought I knew my Chevys. I work 5 miles from home. Traveled once on a trip 300 miles and once or twice 45 minutes away. It had 82,000 miles. Three months into my purchase I experienced over heating. I serviced it through the place of...
  3. Gen1 Service Issues
    Hi, I have a 1.4L 2016 Cruze limited and i am wondering when i should change my oil. I drive long trips (1.5 Hours) all highway to work EVERYDAY (One way) and back is another 1.5 hours all highway too. I am a smooth driver - never punch it. I get the good oil and always change it myself. I...
  4. Gen2 Diesel General Discussion
    I took a driving trip from Central Illinois to the Florida Treasure Coast this past week. A few observations of ownership after 5 months: 1. This car (6MT diesel) has unbelievably long range. The entire drive down to Florida required a single fuel stop in Spartanburg SC. It is not possible to...
  5. Gen2 Audio & Electronics
    Hi all! I have mostly completed the installation of my stereo upgrades. I am still tinkering and fussing around with the tuning of the system, but so far I am very pleased with the results of the upgrades I have made, and wanted to start a thread to detail this installation, with the hope of...
  6. Gen1 Service Issues
    Hello all, I need to refill my windshield fluid because this old one that the guy was using who I purchased from seems to leave irritatingly white marks on the spots where my wipers do not reach (top right corner and left hand side of the windshield looking out). Because the wiper fluid is low...

    I've got just over 64,000 miles on my car and the original brake pads. When have you guys replaced your pads? How many miles were you able to get out of them?

    Hello All, I have been lurking for a long time and have now gotten the itch to play around with my 2013 Cruze with 1.4 now that the warranty is over with. I love driving this car. Although it is not intended to drive hard in the twisties, it's exactly what I do with it on the weekends. I just...

    Anyone been running a ZZP FMIC for a while now? How has it held up? Looking to add an IC before summer comes around and I see 110* days.
  10. Gen2 Diesel General Discussion
    I usually idle for a minute or two after I park at my destination. This is to ensure the turbine section has a chance to cool down. This is in addition to taking it easy the last few miles of my trip. Unless, the EGT is high and I assume it is in the middle of a regen. Then I'll wait a few...
  11. Gen2 Diesel General Discussion
    To anyone who custom ordered their diesel Cruze ... what was the timeline like as far as how long it took to get a build date, and how long between the build date and when it arrived? I ordered mine one month ago and still have not received a build date, so I'm getting a little antsy. Dealer...

    I have had my Cruze for 3.5 years. Sadly on September 6th the vehicle was totaled. My wife was driving and did the tango with an 18 wheeler. Thank you Chevrolet for saving her life, all airbags deployed and she walked away (with help) with only a minor sprain and bruising. In August of last year...

    So after Having two Different Cruzes for 5 1/2 years, I'm out! Gm Bought my 2012 LTZ back without me getting any lawyers involved for nearly $20k and I only paid $17K for it originally.. They threw in a $1500 for the money I spent out of warranty on the Nav unit that went out a few months ago...

    I had a few cars before. At 100-120k miles, they all had to go through a second belt, cv joints, and a whole range of other stuff wasn't working well. I have a 2011 Cruze Eco at 60k miles, and wonder when it's the best time for me to sell it? I want to buy the 2017 mustang with 2.0L turbo then...

  17. Fuel Economy
    Living in Queens, I don't often see great fuel mileage. I had the opportunity to see what my 17 LT manual RS hatch could do on an economy run. Car has 2500 miles and I have installed an AEM cold air intake and Flowmaster axleback.Topped off in Brookhaven, cleared my trip odo and set off towards...

This last regen it started to regen around 900 miles and I was in a car wash and low engine speed for awhile, it didn't go to 1 on scanguage but grams of soot went to 13 during this regen of sorts, assumed when car was driven it would resume, it...
  19. Fuel Economy
    Slowly ramping up my new to me car search in the < 10g range. Would like to buy in the next few months. I've pretty much settled on a 1LT RS for a bit of style but still respectable mpg (compared with the eco) Im wondering if the types of commutes would be enough to allow the 6mt to fully...

    Hi, I've been lurking around for information for the past year or so. I have a black/black 16' limited 1LT with a K&N typhoon intake, borla cat back, and currently awaiting my ez flash cable from trifecta. I've been very impressed with the platform, and am looking forward to contributing to the...
