    New front fascias and some added tech are among the biggest updates. Just like the Malibu, both the Cruze and Spark have gone under the knife for a refresh. The two cars have been restyled and revamped, both inside and out, for the 2019 model year, adding a few unique cues that should help them...
  2. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    New belt & tensioner, still minor belt noise, increases with RPM "ch, ch, ch, ch" Read other threads may be crank seal, removed dipstick did not eliminate, pullies spin straight water pump might have a bit of wobble to it, replaced serpentine belt and tensioner with OEM parts... same noise as...

    This must be a bad year for cruzes, was on the way home and was forced into an adjacent lane by a jeep, got clipped by an suv...jeep kept on driving, probably aware of what they caused. No major damage, just took off the mirror and scuffed up the paint. Neither of us were found at fault...
  4. Gen1 Service Issues
    Recently, I began having problems with the radio intermittently failing to recognize my iPod upon start-up (but not in ACC mode), and the clock would lose time - a lot of time. It would also take 30 seconds or more for the radio to even come on after starting the car. No codes popped or...

    A week ago, I was going to take a right turn through a yield sign at a 4 way intersection. The person in front of me went almost all the way through it, but pulled to the side and stopped abruptly because a car had been coming through they didn't see. I had a lot on my mind and assumed he had...
  6. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    Today I took in my Diesel for its first service. First lets get to the minor issue and I am a little bothered by Goodyear. My daughter in law scrapped the right front tire slightly against a curb and the tire did not like it on the sidewall but it continued to hold air. I looked at the tire...
  7. Gen1 Audio & Electronics
    I swapped my dome light bulbs with LEDs, and since then, it's like my remote isn't responding correctly. The first time you lock/unlock the doors, it responds most of the time . For the second press, you sometimes have to wait up to 5 seconds. I put the normal bulbs back in today, and it works...

    I hit a small deer on my way home from work last night. The center of the bumper cover is cracked and the passenger side has some spiderweb cracks near the bottom. It was a really minor collision, in fact if my AC was working I wouldn't even consider claiming my insurance, I'd just get a new...

  11. Gen1 Appearance, Body, Detailing, & Interior
    Maybe I'm just being extremely OCD and overly critical. I just purchased a new 2012 Cruze about 2-3 weeks ago, I have a little over 500 miles on her right now. This morning I noticed a little bird poop on my hood, and without thinking I quickly reacted with an overly dramatic "EFF NO!!!" and...

    Over 40 year old Made in the USA ramps won't work, inclination angle is 22.3 degrees, determined for the Cruze, maximum angle is 18 degrees. Some guy on youtube is using a single 2 X 4, was going to make ramp extenders with a 2 X 10 that would fit flat on the floor and ramp that I could do...
  13. Gen1 Appearance, Body, Detailing, & Interior
    So I did some spring cleaning in the garage and found some left over tint and di-noc from my last project. Decided to make use of them on the cruze and tinted the headlights and fogs and used the di-noc to do the emblems, covered the chrome door handles and de-badge and re-badge lol. What ya...
