  2. GM Quality Control out of Control?

    General Discussion
    GM Just Lost Its Fourth Quality Chief In Less Than Four Years If there’s one thing that has bedeviled General Motors for the last several decades, it’s quality. So when the company announced a few years back that it was working to get the quality of its cars up, we weren’t sure how...

    So my car now has 12k miles on it and I got it in November of 2014. I've noticed that I have an obscene amount of paint that is chipped! There has got to be at least 20 different spots! A few of which are definitely noticeable from a slight distance without even looking for them. I've taken one...

  11. Bluetooth quality

    Gen1 Audio & Electronics
    Ever since I have owned this car I get complaints of its hard to hear me while speaking to someone using bluetooth in the car. They state it sounds like I am far away, like I have the windows open, etc. Anyone else getting this? I'm wondering if it's a crummy bluetooth setup or something is...

  13. Quality of Oil Dip Stick

    General Discussion
    Isn't is possible while checking your Oil, the Dipstick with the Plastic handle/assembly could snap when replacing. I looked at it today and it reminded me of something kids would see on a play toy? What happens if the metal part separates and falls in the motor. How far would it go, and how...

    I'm getting to like the CRUZE more & more each day! Quality isn't synonymous with the CRUZE. Took about a half an hour to complete. Gave the CRUZE a 7 out of 10!
  15. Who makes a nice quality replacement shock and strut?

    Gen1 Wheels, Tires, Brakes, & Suspension
    It is quite obvious the fac shocks/struts do not last long and are not the greatest. I am looking for a model that will replace the fac units and work well with the fac ECO springs. I do not want coil overs, exotic stuff etc etc. This is a Chevy Cruze, not a C6. They must be able to work in...

  19. DEF Poor Quality Warning.

    Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    Driving on Saturday the DEF light came on and the info screen said "Exhaust Fluid Quality Poor, See Owners Manual Now" Then it began a countdown to limiting the top speed. The manual says this can happen if the wrong fluid is added to the tank but at 5,000 miles I have yet to add any...
  20. Diesel exhaust fluid quality low

    Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    Last night I experienced the dreaded DEF quality low warning light as well as the DIC warning message 99 miles until speed limited to 65 mph. You can't even clear the message on the DIC to look at your other stuff which is a little bit annoying. I have never added any DEF to the car since I...
