    General Discussion
    Thought I wouldn't buy another 1st gen but haven't had a diesel yet and this is selling tomorrow at auction. 55,000 mile 2014 with leather and heated seats. Do the diesels have any longer warranty then the gas cars? Anything to check out mechanically before buying?

    General Discussion
    On the “High Mileage Badge Thread” CruzeTalk member “Pegasus” asked: ”What octane gas was used to earn the “mileage badge” and did you have any major engine problems?” I too am interested in the answers to that question. I’m trying to decide if I should spend a lot more $$ for premium 91/93...
  11. Engine light came on with slow acceleration + decreased gas mileage

    General Discussion
    So the check engine light came on and now I do have the kick I used to accelerating, especially slow acceleration at higher gears and my gas mileage has gone up about 1L/100. The car is still very derivable but won't be able to get it looked at until Thursday. Any idea what this might be? Turbo...

  13. GEN 2 Anyone high mileage Service Repairs?

    Gen2 Service Issues
    There's similar high mileage threads for the GEN 1 Cruze, but I didn't see anything with respect to GEN 2. Who has some significant mileage on their GEN2, and what have your service issues been? For example GEN1's off the lot had problems with the HVAC coolant smell, and coolant leaks. Water...
  14. Dropped mileage on my CTD

    Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    Hey there. So I filled up diesel at Husky today for $64 and then I go to check my estimated range and it says 502km only. Usually it’s around 750 to 800. I feel like my CTD is not nearly as efficient as it should be. Any ideas why it could be doing this.
  15. Fuel mileage decrease

    Gen1 Diesel Technical Discussion
    As many of us do, I track my fuel mileage closely. I’ve noticed about a 5 mpg decrease in fuel economy during my commute lately. I’m struggling to get my 25 mile average into the 50’s, when mid-50’s was the norm over the same stretch of highway. First I attributed it to “winter fuel” and colder...
