  1. Gen1 Service Issues
    I decided to change the plugs in my 2012 Cruze (2LS, 1.8L LUW) since I had recently done it on my 2013 Cruze after fixing a misfire due to an oil leak. After removing the cover and ignition coil module, I saw the #3 plug well had oil in it - same place I found oil leaking on my 2013 - so the...

    Hi folks, Just got my 17 Cruze. This is my first Chevy- I've always been a Ford guy, and my 2016 Fiesta will probably be the last one I ever buy. That car was a nightmare. I digress..... I'm 6' tall with a 30" inseam (Longer legs, shorter torso) and I'm still trying to find a comfortable...

    Alright so I believe I have found a little trick that helps cope with the variable voltage alternator controlled by the on board computer. The cars stock negative battery cable runs through a sensor which monitors the current being drawn which tells the computer how hard to run the alternator...

    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...

    According to various sources, the Chevy Cruze (the version we on this forum know of, not the suzuki joint venture one produced prior) was produced as early as 2008, I'm assuming for the 2009 model year. I don't know how far this forum reaches and if their are people on here from outside USA but...

    While at the lot last week looking around specifically for a Cruze, I thought I wanted an RS model. I had the sales person bring one out and for some reason seeing it up close in person just didn't sit well with me. I didn't even test drive the car because I disliked the look so much. He...
