  1. Gen2 Diesel General Discussion
    I looked through the top 4 pages on this sub forum and found no active topics. For those that track it what kind of economy are you seeing in the 2nd gen diesels? If I missed a relevant thread please link it. Thanks.
  2. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    After 55K miles and just over two years of ownership, took the CTD on a real road trip. I live in the Baltimore/Washington area, drove the Cruze to Myrtle Beach, SC. It made it from home to just over the NC/SC border on 8 gallons of diesel (first fuel stop). To MB, around MB, and back to...
  3. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    No kidding. I have driven the car several thousand miles since I did my custom muffler delete and have averaged a 2-3mpg gain in fuel economy. Maybe this is a rarity, or some voodoo magic, but it happened. I guess my stock exhaust was just that restrictive, but I am sharing because $30ish...

    A couple of days ago, I completed a drive from Mid-Michigan to around the Kansas City area, (A total of about 750 or so miles) and have noticed that my real life fuel economy (according to the car computer) is around 35-36MPG when going the speed limit of 65-70 the whole way. I see these posts...
  5. Gen1 Wheels, Tires, Brakes, & Suspension
    So I drive 2013 Cruze and bought a set of Styluz m542. And as the shop was putting them on for me the rear wheels went on perfectly and looked dope. But as they tried putting on the front they were saying the calipers or wheel hub were making the wheels not flush or balanced... something along...
  6. Gen1 Audio & Electronics
    Came accross this on Amazon. Amazon.com: Add Remote Start To Your Chevy Camaro, Cruze, Equinox 2010 & Up. Plug & Play: Electronics with winter coming fast, something as simple as this claims to be is a very attractive product. Seems a little too good to be true though. Just wondered if anyone...

    I have been looking to buy F/R strut tower braces for my eco and shocked to see that they are designed to be mounted to the strut rod. I have never seen a strut tower designed this way and sure as **** do not like it. The point of a strut tower brace is to reinforce the strut towers themselves...

  12. Gen1 Appearance, Body, Detailing, & Interior
    Went on vacation with my wife this weekend in our new 2012 2LT Chevy Cruze. I was hurrying across traffic and there was a dip in this side street and the underneath of the front of car got scraped really bad. What's the name of that part? Is it called a front bumper or a skirt? Being it's a new...

  14. Gen1 Service Issues
    59,425Mi, driver side CV shaft is on it's way to the recycling bin in the sky :( . Has almost a full inch of play in both ends so it looks like the bearings are coming apart. SHOULD be covered under the powertrain warranty so as long as it gets fixed I'm not overly concerned with it. 60K is a...
  15. Gen1 Service Issues
    So, this is an ongoing story, but I thought I'd share it with you all. First, about my car: 2012 Cruze Eco MT6. 24k miles. It only runs Pennzoil Ultra oil and Shell 93 gas. I'm absolutely anal about this car. A few weeks back I set up an appointment to take the Cruze in for inspection, tire...
  16. General Discussion
    Sometime back I did a calculation to try and determine pay back period for the Eco option and it was a LONG LONG time not making it seem like such a great deal. But then I come on here and see some Eco driver's posting some pretty incredible MPG numbers, way above real world numbers for the...
  17. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    Seems GMs claim of 46mpg hwy or 700miles to a tank might be easy to beat with the right driving. according to the article below 58mpg 900miles per tank was achieved. GM Engineer Drives 2013 Chevy Cruze Diesel 900 Miles On One Tank
