    Looking for your recommendations on a cat back exhaust for my 2012 1.4LT. Most concerned with performance gains and modest to significant increase in sound.

  5. Gen1 Powertrain
    I have a 2014 Cruze Eco, US spec, 6spd manual with the 1.4T engine. I'm just starting to get into modding it, and added a K&N Typhoon SRI about 2 weeks ago, and I couldn't help but notice (and enjoy) the way it changed the engine's sound. I don't just mean the turbo spool. The engine itself...
  6. Gen1 Audio & Electronics
    Hello Folks, Our Cruze's audio system appears to be going south. All 3 front speaks sound really distorted and also when using the Blue Tooth function you can hardly make out what the caller is saying. Found a boat load of upgrade head units online upgrading from LED to Touch screen which would...

  9. Gen2 Audio & Electronics
    I switched cars with my wife so now I have a 2016 Cruze. Looks like Gen 2 as it was one of the last 2016s off the lot. The USB bus on my Cruze blows - It does a bus reset about a quarter of the times I start the car. That makes connecting to Android Auto problematic but that's a story for...
