    Hey, friends. Newbie question: When I first get into my Cruze in the morning, after I have shifted into drive and started driving, there is a quiet little "brrrrt" sound in/under the hood/engine area within the first few seconds of driving, and a little click inside the dash. This won't usually...
  2. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    When I start my car, the first time I accelerate past about 20mph the car makes a swoosh or very milk clunk noise (it's hard to put into words). It's a 2016 cruze LT I just bought used with 24k miles on it. If I come to a stop and accelerate through 20 mph again and again during my trip, it...
  3. Gen1 Audio & Electronics
    I bought this Cruze a few weeks ago, and driving my car today at a highway something weird happened: vimeo.com/222851951 This is a used car, so I don't know if the recalls have been made. I heard there is a problem in the battery cable that could lead to this issue, could this be the issue?

    I am not sure if I am posting in the correct area I am brand new here. I have an issue with my 2014 Cruze LT when the fan is on max there is a very loud blowing sound, I went out and replaced the air filter and it is still happening, has anyone had a similar issue?
  5. Cruze Owner Projects
    This is my 2014 Cruze LT I started out first with the k and n typhoon intake then following that I wanted to do something about the stock wheels because they are so booty so I got these bad boys, Jeep Wrangler 17x8s with 1 inch adapters to make it 5x105 to 5x114.3 so I could fit those wheels I...
  6. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    How about you? I have had issues with my local dealer in regards to to over charging, not finishing work, not giving paperwork, not returning phone calls etc whenever i brought the car to be looked at..... Yet when i search reviews for this dealer, who has been in business 100 years (i...
  7. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    I have a 2015 Cruze Diesel, went out to start it 2 weeks ago. It turned over normally, then made a higher-pitched noise, as if the starter was not engaging the flywheel. The starter would also not disengage, when the key sprang back to on position, vs start position. Called the dealership...
  8. Gen1 Powertrain
    I recently bought a 2014 cruise 2LT with the RS package. It has about 15k miles on it. I have noticed when the car is cold and it shifts from first gear to second gear around 2000 RPMs that it makes a funny noise. Almost like a grinding sound. It only does it when the car is cold. By the time I...

    I think my coil pack might be going bad again. I'm getting a little bit of an idle surge. It's a 2013 LTZ with 51k miles on it. I have changed the spark plugs when I put the new coil pack on 4 months ago. Any suggestions on the idle surge? All recalls have been completed on the car.
  10. Gen1 Wheels, Tires, Brakes, & Suspension
    Hi everyone, First I want to say this is my first post and I've only been reading posts from Cruzetalk for a few weeks now. My car knowledge is seemingly much less then probably most of yours so forgive me if I am slow to understand things. 2011 Cruze LT, 1.4L Turbo, 76000 miles, just put new...

    I found this to be an interesting read. Audi has made diesel fuel with carbon dioxide and water. Audi has successfully made diesel fuel from carbon dioxide and water - ScienceAlert

    The seat makes a cracking noise when I sit in it, hit a bump or take a turn. It's very annoying. It feel like it is coming from underneath the headrest on the seat. I leased my Cruze back in Aug 2014, and was wondering if this would be covered under some type of warranty?

    What is the company that makes the CTD motor? I just cant seem to find the company name
  14. Gen1 Wheels, Tires, Brakes, & Suspension
    It is quite obvious the fac shocks/struts do not last long and are not the greatest. I am looking for a model that will replace the fac units and work well with the fac ECO springs. I do not want coil overs, exotic stuff etc etc. This is a Chevy Cruze, not a C6. They must be able to work in...
  15. Fuel Economy
    Not sure how to start this as i am terrible with wording things, but when people are looking to boost their MPG why would they opt for something that delivers (supposedly) colder air to the intake? cold air is the last thing you want for MPG. Typically you will hear CAI when talking about...
  16. Gen1 1.8L
    Im looking to add more pep to my 1.8L Cruze.....Has anyone came out with a complete turbo set up for the 1.8s yet? I drive the 1.4s all the time and im jealous of the pep, I just drove the 2.0 Diesel Cruze when that comes out in a manual trans ill probably trade this one in......

    So, over the last year or so, G.M. has been chasing a gremlin. Seems, sometimes the vehicle would not recognize the fob and neither the keyless entry nor the push to start button would operate. Vehicle would be towed to the dealer and......unlocks and starts....every time. This has been...
  18. Gen1 Service Issues
    So whenever I turn my steering wheel it makes this really annoying squeeky sound and it's been happening for around 2 weeks now. It's a 2012 and has 25000 miles. Anybody have it happen to them and know how to fix it?
  19. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I changed the oil today, and my hand slipped when pouring. The 5-quart jug I was pouring out of was mostly empty, and my attention wandered. I managed to spill roughly 1/4 cup of oil (I don't know for sure, but it wasn't a lot) down the front and side of the engine. That oil went everywhere, and...
  20. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Hi, I own a 2011 Cruze LT (with RS and A/T). I have 12000 miles on it. It has been running fine since I got it a year ago, but I never really drove it in traffic or frequent start/stop situations so I was always happy with the way it drove (except for the coolant leak that took months to find...
