    I don't know if its just me but when I get at a red light and start to slowly accelerate and get up to speed. I can feel my foot on the gas peddle shake a little bit, its only in that initial start. Its almost like the car is slightly rocking left to right but I don't know.

    I stumbled on this video of this guy doing 190mph in his corvette. He has a gopro recorder mounted to his trunk lid. A 1:50 is really interesting. You cant keep up with counting the lines in the highway, because hes going so fast lol. Heres the video. 190mph on the highway in a 1000HP...

    Ever wonder *why* the digital MPH (DIC) and analog MPH (speedo) numbers sometimes don't seem to agree? Quoted from Jan'14 GM TechLink website article: "The specification for speedometer needle accuracy is +/– 2 MPH at any given speed when looking straight at the needle."

    Hello all. Some of you may remember that I started a thread asking about a cruze being a good first car, (or maybe it was asking about a good price) then I was told I would be getting my fathers camaro (2010 loaded V6). He has since brought the cruze back up. So now I'm curious as to how many...

    A quote from another thread regarding fuel used for EPA testing: So I finally started data logging with HPTuners after buying the package two years ago and watching it collect dust ever since... I went out on Saturday afternoon and did some consumption vs. speed testing. This is two way...

    2012 Cruze Eco manual trans, car has 29,000 miles on it, and has never been to the dealer once for service or warranty issues. The sound is coming from the front end of the car, sounds like its behind the dash and its a high pitched howl/squeal type sound. I have a K&N SRI, thought the filter...
  9. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Yesterday while traveling 60 mph on the interstate my 2012 1 LT died. All engine related gauges went blank. While coasting I depressed the clutch and then restarted the engine in the normal fashion. It has run fine since. I have 10,000 miles on the car. Has anyone ever had this happen and...
  10. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    My '13 Cruze is not quite two-weeks old. I noticed that at 65-66mph, there seems to be a slight surge...slow to 64 or increase to 67 and there's no surge. I drive 52 miles one-way to work, so there is plenty of highway to check and make these claims. I called my dealer and also mentioned the...
  11. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Anybody wanna guess how much horsepower it takes to drive an ECO Cruze at 55, 65 and 75 mph? Surprising, the answer is "...not much!" Below are the HP values for a vehicle speed of 50 mph (excerpted from the certification documents that GM submitted to EPA for model years 2011, 2012 and 2013)...

  13. Gen1 Service Issues
    I own a 2012 chevy cruze, 2k miles. Problem: around 58-65 mph there is a whining noise coming from the engine bay, I took it to the dealership and they told me it was just the tires. I'm finding this hard to believe. Someone else had posted about a similar noise, they reffered to it as a "morse...

    My first post! I did 2 tests in my 2012 cruze eco 6mt in the past few months Yesterday I traveled 195.9 miles with the cruise control set at 65 mph the entire way without drafting anyone or stopping. I only had to take it off 65 once for a 6 mile long work zone where it was 55mph and I was...
  16. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Cruze LT 1.4T Automatic-69F, street tires, 93 Octane (1/4 tank). Only modifications are a K&N Typhoon filter, a ported intake manifold, and of course our Stage 1 custom tuning! The only difference since my last posted time is the addition of a K&N Typhoon intake instead of a drop-in K&N filter...

    I have a 2012 LS with the 1.8L and automatic transmission. I've noticed that when I'm slowing down, say when I'm coming up to a red light or stop sign, around 25 mph I get a whining noise, it's either from the engine or transmission. I think it's because the transmission is upshifting when I'm...
