  1. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    Hey Guys i need some insight on new tires for the CTD. Im not the biggest fan of the stock goodyears and hear they are different from the "normal" ones? What are Y'all running and did your mileage change? I need the mileage to stay as close to stock as possible. Thanks
  2. Gen2 Service Issues
    Sorry if this has been answered already. I can't get search to work well. Does the Gen 2 1.4 GTDI engine drain plug have issues with a stripping (Torx drive? or hex drive?) like the Gen 1 engine? If the original drain plug is 'no good', is there a recommendation for a replacement plug? If...
  3. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Background: I don't drive my cruze in the winter, I have a rusty winter beater for that. So I only drive the Cruze from ~April to early November in MN almost no driving below freezing/32F and there's typically only a weeks-worth of temps above 90F annually. I have been using 5w-30. Any...
  4. Gen2 Appearance, Body, Detailing, & Interior
    I am very familiar with the Clearbra, as we have one on our Camaro. And I am wondering if anyone has anything else installed to protect from rock/debris on the highway. The clearbra definitely requires a little more attention to cleaning after long drives, especially in the evening when it...

    Hi all, This is my first post on here. I picked up a 2016 Cruze LS Manual on Saturday and I'm loving it. I was wondering if anyone has a recommendation for a good sun shade that fits our cars. I found this one from WeatherTech, but I'm assuming it's for a pre-2016.5 Cruze and I'm not sure how...

    Question 1 How much tread depth do you consider good / safe for winter driving? The Assurance Authority tires the previous owner of my vehicle had didn't wear evenly (overinflated hypermiler?), so right now I have about 5/32 on the outer, and 3/32", maybe 4/32" on the inner. I thought I might...
  7. Gen1 Diesel Technical Discussion
    Now that our diesel has been around for awhile, what is the preferred monitor / code clearing device? I like the idea of the Edge CTS over a traditional hand held scanner, and don't want an app for my phone. What are the best options for our CTDs? I do not plan on making any performance...

  10. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    It seems that AMSOIL is filling in the gaps for products. There was a rumor rearlier this year that they were working on a 5W-30 Dexos2 equivalent oil, but they've now verified that their ATF is suitable for use in this transmission as well, which is good since the GM stuff is ridiculously...

    Ok, I can't take it anymore...too many Cruzes going around sporting nice tint and I still have stock glass. I need a recommendation for a shop that will do a really nice job in the Orange County, CA area, preferably Anaheim area. Thanks!

    Well I broke down and bought HID's for the Cruze. I went with a cheap ebay brand to gauge the quality. I figure if I get 3-4 months out of them I'd get my monies worth. Xentec is the brand, Paired with sturdy, attractive packaging I can seem to figure out how these HID's are actually sold for...
  13. General Discussion
    Searched the forums, didn't find anything. Also, didn't see a better place to post this, sorry if its the wrong spot. I am looking for a recommendation on brake pads\rotors. I drive the car everyday, it's my commuter, not a sports car used on a track. I am looking for recommendations on...

    What is GM's official recommendation for PSI on the FR710s? BOTH front and rear? Whats on the door jam?

    I'll be using the stock receiver. The amp will be powering 1 dual 2 ohm Image Dynamics IDQ 12" sub. The sub is currently in a .90 sealed enclosure. I've had this sub since about 2005 or so. Can anyone recommend a decent priced sub amp? I've been eyeballing the Kenwood kac-8105d. I'd like...
