  1. Gen2 Diesel General Discussion
    So after driving my 2018 diesel 6 speed for 71K miles I think that the drive axles are starting to show wear. The car is dead quiet while driving along, but as soon as I start to turn I hear (and kinda feel) a metal friction noise. It could be nothing, But I would not be suprised to hear a front...

  3. Gen2 Service Issues
    I have a Cruze built in July 2016, and hit 60k this week (60334 as of now.) I know theres tire rotation and oil change (I use Royal Purple and rotate when I find time after it hits mileage.) According to this, I need to replace the spark plugs...
  4. Titan Synthetics
    It took a while, but AMSOIL has finally released a 15k mile filter for the Gen1 Cruze. The filter part number is EA15K35. This is a synthetic media filter, rated 20 microns absolute at 98.7% efficiency, or a beta ratio of beta75 @ 20 microns. The filters are rated for 15,000 miles, so those of...
  5. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    My 2012, 1.4 has 77,000 miles. I see I have an "Emission Select Component Ltd Wty" that is good through 9/15/19 or 80,000 miles. What is included in the "select components"? I just had the valve cover replaced by a local shop because it needed the PCV valve replaced. Is that included in the...
  6. Gen2 Wheels, Tires, Brakes, & Suspension
    According to this ( ) after 45k, the tires need to be rotated, oil change, air and cabin filter, bleed brakes, change trans fluid, and inspect evaporative...
  7. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    Just wanted to drop a quick note on how the car has been and what we have had to do deal with over the last 2 years or so. The car has been pretty much 100% reliable with a few hiccups along the way. I'll list them in a minute. The only thing that I have noticed, is that documented MPG has...

    I’ve had my 2017 Cruze Premier Hatch, for a little over 3 weeks, now. In this review, I outline my pros and cons with this car. This being my 4th Cruze, I can offer some comparison and contrast, to the Generation 1 Cruze. First thing, the car. I was interested in the Hatch, from the second I...

    *not recommended, or advised I've been meaning to write this for a while now. My vehicles tend to be "disposable", because I get reimbursed through work for driving a personal vehicle. The only catch is that the vehicle has to be less than "x" number of years to be in plan. I chose a 5 year...
  12. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    Well I was planning on doing a big write up on the first 100k in my diesel. I was all excited about how little maintenance it required and how reliable it has been. I am still excited about all of that, but it seems mine is not a unique story. Several other members have over 100k miles with very...
  13. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    So, the camera didn't do a great job of capturing this on video, but it does give you an idea. it's developed a few leaks over it's 202K miles. You can see where the main oil leak is at about 1:58-1:59. I am not sure what that is.
  14. ⛽ Fuel Economy
    I took this pictures this afternoon: 1.6 L/100 KM => 147 MPG. With rounding to the nearest 10th of a liter/100 KM the actual conversion is between 142.6 and 151.8 MPG.
  15. Gen1 Diesel Fuel Economy
    I'm at 64.9 mpg for my 25 mile best. I've routinely gotten in the low 60s for the 25 mile average, but only if I'm running non bio. Not bad for a 3500 lb car.

  17. General Discussion
    I always see the threads for members posting about who has the most amount of miles. We might have the king of them all. A guy who comes into my Dad's dealer just traded in his 2012 Cruze 1.4t with 650,000 miles on it. The car still has the original engine and 6 speed automatic. He had his oil...

  19. ⛽ Fuel Economy
    Hey, I just came back from a little trip with my 2014 Cruze LT 6 speed. I was averaging 50 MPG, setting cruise control at 62 MPH and using AC the entire duration of the trip. Those are hybrid/diesel numbers !!! Pretty sure no other car in this segment can beat that. Great little car and quite...
