  1. General Discussion
    So I've had this 2013 Cruze LS for less than a year. Had a few problems with it which I thought I would since it's got 100k miles on it and, well, I expected to have problems buying a 3 year old car with 100k miles on it from a used dealer. But for the life of me I cannot get this stupid little...
  2. Gen2 Audio & Electronics
    I didn't want the smartphone integration stuff. Had to take it if I wanted a hatch. Finally thought I had everything set yesterday, went for a drive. Android Auto prevented me from accessing my music, 'Scrolling prevented for safety'. :eek7:. I'd just as soon go back to books full of CD's I...

    Let me preface this by saying that this is mostly just a rant to get it out of my system, So take what i'm about to type with a grain of salt. What the **** is with GM (or maybe my dealership) using the cheapest **** lugnuts i've ever seen? I mean seriously, I got 2 tires changed, and now i'm...

    Over the Xmas holiday I had the oil/filter changed on our Cruze Diesel while out of town but at a dealer I was familiar with and even worked for the franchise many years ago. New oil, filter and DEF topped off and good to go, so I thought. For the next 3 days car left an oil sheen where ever it...

    This is my little rant about why you should not buy an intake. I was considering one myself, but I've done enough research to know it's a bad idea, and here's why. 1) You'll be messing with one of the 1.8's most carefully-engineered features: a variable length intake. At low rpm's the intake is...
  6. Gen1 Audio & Electronics
    So first off, my car is now out of the bumper to bumper warranty. I have 37,000 miles happy miles. Still, I can't believe that GM is charging for software updates just because my warranty is out. This isn't a repair, nothing is broken. In this modern day, free updates should be the norm. Apple...

    I recently had an oil change done at the dealership where I bought my Cruze, and they notified me that I was part of the axle recall, so I'd need to schedule an appointment. Took it in today for the "recall check" and apparently my axle does need to be replaced and they also informed me that...

    Perhaps a lot of this stuff has been said on here before (I know I've said some in bits and pieces in other threads), but having had both the basic radio system in a 2011 Cruze and now having the MyLink in my new 2014 CTD, I have to say, as much as I love the new CTD, the MyLink system leaves a...

    Sorry guys, I just need to vent. I took my car into the dealership for brake issues. I won't get into all the details here but the dealership acted like jerks, refused to update me on the status of the car, etc. I took the advise of a friend and contacted GM who contacted the dealership's...

    I honestly wish i could go back to when i bought the cruze and return the thing. I should have just went with the Jeep i saw. Actually got better mpg then this thing. After getting the ecm/tcm "updated' the thing gets even worse mpg. I can't even get over 27mpg highway in the thing. My...

    Does anyone else find the Cruze's GPS system to be somewhat of a ripoff? I was going to go with the 2011 Cruze, found it didn't have touch screen, and then waited for the '12 because they were just rolling them out at the time. First, the touch screen adds nothing to the experience. I am...

    :angry: Went to meet my wife for an early dinner before heading off to work. Just to come out to see that someone backed into GoldenRS. No note or witnesses and she even parked way out in one of the last rows. THANKS LOSER!!:angry: I'll have to call it in Monday as it appears that I'll be...

    Rant On; HEY GM ! I'm paying for this heap of recycled parts, PAINT it the color I want, [if the other Cruze models offer the color, why not?] the 1LT, 2LT & LTZ offer Victory RED, charge me, just Paint IT ! But No Victory Red for the ECO, the only Red is the "optional" Crystal Red Tintcoat @...

    I had ignorant people who could give two shakes less about anyone but themselves. I am referring to those people who must park right next to you close as possible putting your car at risk for door dents and dings. I purposely park away from you a holes so that my car is safe, and you still...

    My daily driver is an '08 astra xr 2dr 5spd stick. Love the that transmission. My wife can drive a stick but she prefers an auto. Here goes. I finally drove my wife's new Cruze with the auto trans. The shifting in this transmission has to be the ABSOLUTE WORST I have ever experienced. My wife...
