  1. Gen2 Audio & Electronics
    Curious about something with the chime sounds the car emits from the drivers door speaker - when you hit the auto lock when exiting the car, or if you're not wearing your seatbelt, etc... Does a sensor/switch request the audio/infotainment system to generate the chime sounds, or is there...
  2. Gen1 Service Issues
    My blend door lever finally broke exactly like others, means I'm stuck on defrost or not at all. The replacement piece is ridiculous expensive for being a tiny piece of plastic, and being I have a 3D printer I'd like to design a replacement and print it instead. If anyone has one of these pieces...
  3. Gen1 Service Issues
    Went out this morning to start our Cruze and the battery was dead. I jumped it and it took forever to recharge so it would start. On the dash was the message to roll down the drivers window and roll it back up. My wife did that and it went away. We drove an hour home and I went to have the the...

    Just as it says, Installed a used ZZP SRI that I picked up on the cheap. Used a piece of screen as an air strengthener and unplugged the battery, seems to be running great except......when i turn left it makes an odd noise, almost like it suddenly can reverberate a lot or like something was...
  5. Gen1 Wheels, Tires, Brakes, & Suspension
    New to the forum.....I have a 2012 LT with 97000 miles on it. Recently I have an intermittent problem when I first start the car and back up. The brake seems to be weak and spongy. It will stop but it seems like the peddle is spongy. When going forward there is no problems and the brakes...
  6. Gen1 Audio & Electronics
    On my 2013 Cruze LTZ I have the passive door locks (button that is on the handle that locks and unlocks the door: Part Number: 13577716). The weird thing is when the temperature is in the 30s (Fahrenheit), the button on the driver door will not work. All the three other ones work fine. If I rest...
  7. Gen1 Diesel Technical Discussion
    Hey everyone, for the past month I've noticed a strange noise coming from the passenger side front wheel, sounds like a light metallic rubbing (like rusty rotors touching due to play in a wheel hub bearing). So I checked the wheel hub for play but found none. Removed wheel and didn't see...

    I have noticed sence my car was new that leave my place in the morning that the shift from 1-2 is very slow. I was check it out today shifting it manually that when the transmission is cold it skips 2 and goes right to third. After 3 miles of driving it shifts normally from a stop. Has anyone...
  9. Gen2 Powertrain
    Car has about 300 miles on it. It reminds me of when I would attach cardboard to my bicycle so the cardboard hit the spokes. Sound sample on YouTube: https://youtu.be/Dp8grx_8-_k (you might need to turn up the volume). Chevy service department agrees it sounds odd, but no diagnosis so far...
  10. Gen1 Audio & Electronics
    I recently had upgraded my radio & CD audio system. The issue is the new radio head unit had came from US where the radio stations frequencies are odd only (e.g. 100.1, 100.3, 100.5, ...). But here in my country I have both odd and even radio frequencies (e.g. 100.0, 100.1, 100.2, 100.3, 100.4...
  11. Gen1 Wheels, Tires, Brakes, & Suspension
    I am hearing a thumping sound coming from the front end. I can feel it in the floor, not in the wheel - there is no shimmy. I just had the tires rotated as I was told that's what it was... that didn't help. if anyone has had this issue, can you give me suggestions as to what to have checked...

    First odd issue with my newish 2016 LTZ/RS: A leak of what appears to be a water-based fluid, beneath right front passenger side. I thought itt was A/C related, but I have not been running the A/C. Before I take it in, any ideas from you experts?

    Hello Cruzers: Minor issue no. 1: My new Cruze Classic LTZ exhibits an odd summer morning issue: condensation on the outside of the front windscreen, just above the defog vent, but on the outside, even as I adjust the HVAC too other settings (floor, toward face). We are having a warm...
  14. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Sounds similar to this video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cXmptsHVP4s The sound itself sounds like its coming from the passenger side footwell but its definitely the engine. Sounds almost like it is buzzing. Is this normal?
  15. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Sorry if this issue has been brought up but I couldn't find much since its kind of vague and I don't know the problem. Engine makes a whirring to squealish sound, on and off, for seconds (~10) at a time, pretty often. Happens when parked or moving. It just started happening the other day...
  16. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    OK so a few months ago I was driving on the interstate and when I came to a stop I noticed a gas/oil smell. I thought nothing of it and thought it was coming from the semi in front of me but when I got to work and got out of the car I noticed it against so I popped the hood. Low and behold there...

  19. Gen1 Diesel Technical Discussion
    So with45,000 KM on the car I had my first check engine light come on this evening. I remote started the car and walked outside to get in, but before I put the keys in the ignition I popped the hood to top off the washer fluid which of course shut the engine off. Once I was done under the hood...

    Hello, I have a few questions that I hope you can help with. I have a 2014 Chevy cruze diesel. Love the car, love the power, love the mpg. I have noticed some odd things, and maybe that is just the way they are, but figured I would ask here. The first thing is the rear window defrost only clears...
