  3. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Hi guys, My 2013 Cruze has been plagued with the Neutral Idle malfunction since I got it. Since, two service centers tried to fix it for me, and both failed a number of times. Is anyone aware if this feature can be disabled by some kind of reprogramming? It just kills my transmission when it...
  4. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    I have grown accustomed to the shift to neutral at a stop in the CTD. I drove a 1.4 2lt and it does not have this. the owners manual says its to save wear and tear plus ive heard to save some fuel to the engine doesn't have to fight the TC during the stop time. i would personally take it out if...

    3 weeks ago we traded in our 2011 Crystal Red Cruze LTZ on a 2014 White Cruze Diesel with the cocoa/light neutral leather seats. We really wanted the Red Hot with the jet black leather seats, but we got a good deal on the White one so we made the trade. As I said Red Hot was our #1 color of...
  6. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Hi. I have a 2012 Cruze RS with a 1.4L Turbo. It has 64,000km/40,000mi on it. The car has been a dream to own and I have only done oil changes, an air filter change recently, and one wiper blade change. The past week or two I have noticed that when at a stop light or sign, with the clutch...
  7. Gen1 Powertrain
    When sitting still idling in neutral, if I only press the clutch (no brake or throttle) the rpms will quickly blip from 700 to 850-900 for just a half second then fall back to 700 with the pedal now to the floor. Trying to figure out if this is normal with others... specifically if this is...

    2014 2LT Red Hot - 5-weeks old. After owning my Cruze for 2 weeks, noticed the blue dye from my jeans was turning the driver seat blue...a process known as dye transfer. At Walmart, purchased Meguiar's, Gold Class, Rich Leather Cleaner-Conditioner for about 6 bucks...13.5 ounce. Cleaned...

    I was going to buy tan WeatherTech mats for my Cruze with the cocoa/light neutral interior. I bought a tan steering wheel cover and it doesn't match the light neutral of the Cruze at all. If this was the Black interior the choice would be easy. Anyone else with the cocoa/light neutral...
  10. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    So I'm driving along on the freeway yesterday. It's about 75*. I notice the car is just running like crap. No throttle response, no power, nothing. I get to a point where I notice that I'm losing speed and the tach is sitting at 3000 rpm. I adjust the pedal a bit but no change in RPM so I floor...

    I have to say I really don't like the feature where the car goes into neutral when it's stopped and the brake is applied for more than a second. They say it conserves fuel. I personally don't think there would be much of a savings in fuel by the car going into neutral. But what I do notice is...

    2012 Eco 6SPD Manual Transmission: Driving today, coming up to a stoplight I shifted into neutral and my car, quietly and gently, stalled. Anyone else ever have this happen? It caught me off guard because I just heard the AC switch off and everything got quiet. I don't know if it stalled or if...

    6th gear with your foot completely off the pedal or neutral. Which do you think is better for fuel efficiency going down hill??
  15. Gen1 Service Issues
    Hello all, I bought my 2011 Automatic Eco in the beginning of May and took it in to the dealer in June for both recalls. It came back in the same condition. Last Friday, I was pulling out of a parking space, and shifted into drive. The car wouldn't go forward, the DIC indicated the car was...

    I have a 2LT 1.4L 6 speed automatic, and I was hoping someone could explain what has been happening with my car, and it only seems to be a problem going highway speeds (our speed limit is 70 mph) when I was going 70 mph and topped a hill I let off the gas (did not put the brake on) and the car...
  17. Gen1 Powertrain
    I have gotten into the habit of putting my auto trans in neutral when I am sitting at an intersection for any fair length of time. I am wondering if this is easier on the tranny or harder on it in the long run. Can anyone tell me? I certainly get some strange looks from some of my passengers...
