  1. Fuel Economy
    I have a few stupid questions for you guys! Lurked the forum a bit, but still have some stupid questions. Bought a 2018 Cruze, and found in the manual that apparently I should only use 87 and higher, with no more than 15% ethanol. I have no idea what the dealer filled me up with, but I put in...

    After three years of production, it looks like this entire first-generation era of the Chevrolet Cruze (2011-2015) won't be receiving any awards for reliability at all.

  6. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    I've been chomping at the bit to get at this car since I heard it was coming out. One of the main reasons I wanted a Cruze diesel is that I have this little 1,060 lb camper that I pull and with my Pontiac Vibe (see photo below) With 2 people and gear, it's pretty close to the 1,500 load limit...
  7. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Interesting on the GM system my cruze vehicle build info indicates KRD - FUEL RATING OCTANE NO. 91 I would say that is the truth as what fuel the engine is rated for !

    2011 Chevrolet Cruze Achieves 5-Star Overall Safety Score -- DETROIT, Dec. 23, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Chevy should definitely jump on this as it's a great marketing opportunity.
