    I've got a 2017 Cruze LT RS...and I also commute 180 miles a day, 5 days a week. That's about 45k miles a year. That being said, I'm not exactly car savvy and my dealer is hit or miss in terms of maintenance recommendations. I'm at 66k now and I last did a bigger maintenance run at 45k (basic...

    I was blown away by the claimed performance numbers by Trifecta. Can anybody recommend a few good bank for your buck initial mods to give this thing a little more fire in it's belly, yet not significantly compromise longevity? (I plan on keeping it for another 4 or 5 years. ) Or is a tune...

    I was only doing oil&filter change since I bought my car in Nov 2014, so based on the age of the car what are the recommended services ? I've asked the dealership and they (different dealerships) recommend on 30k to do the following (not sure if that too much or should be done now based on the...

    Consumer Reports no longer recommends the Gen 2 Cruze, because, drumroll, Reliability. No surprise, I guess, with the issues documented on here. I'm guessing it's taken a year for the issues to start rearing their heads in the Gen 2's. I still love mine, even though I have had a couple...

    Having a discussion with a co-worker today, about changing tires. I know of the formula for changing the pressure if you use a non OEM tire. Inflation PSI = Z*X*35%/Y Where: X= Gross vehicle weight (lbs) Y= max load per tire - as marked on sidewall (lbs) Z= max tire pressure - as marked on...
  9. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I own a 2011 1.4L LT RS and going to calibrate over night tonight but I wanna know if re-gapping is recommended? What gap are you running with your trifecta tune? I have the BKR8EIX plugs gapped at .033(ish) right now! Is there one better than the other? I'm not really concerned with MPG so...

    I just had my first CEL show up at 36.5K, go figure. I picked up a cheap code reader and it will clear the CEL but the code just shows N/A. Can anyone recommend a good code reader for the CTD that will not cost me a heap? Thanks.

    2014 2LT Red Hot Cruze...5-weeks-old. My original tires are P225/50 R17. Recommended pressure, per driver door sticker, is 30 PSI, front and rear. Yet, on this site, I see members quoting 35 PSI, for their cars. ...and, higher for the ECO, of course. Anyone else quoted 30 PSI, per driver...
  13. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    So I went in for my 7500 mile oil change and the dealer recommended Mobil Delvac 1 ESP as the synthetic oil for my car. They were very understanding and used my Mobil 1 ESP 5w30. Seems the education still isn't getting through. I was also told by one employee that I would void my warranty if...
  14. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Thinking about getting a new muffler. Want something that sounds nice but not like some shittttt ricer glass pack. Want a low growl sound but something that also screams at high rpms. Hopefully a muffler can do this but I know mufflers don't do much vs. Putting in different exhaust systems...

    My 2012 Cruze LS is up for its 20,000kms recommended maintenance. It will be $150 for the recommended maintenance (wheel alignment, tire rotation, multi-point inspection) plus $50 for an oil change.I assumed I was required to get this service done if I wanted to keep the warranty coverage. After...
