  1. Gen1 Powertrain
    After watching this Scotty Kilmer video, I am now paranoid about the transmission in my Cruze. youtu.be/KePrK9FseGk?t=147 He claims that he has a customer that had the automatic transmission on their Cruze replaced three times. He does not specify the year or mileage of the Cruze. My Cruze is...

    I am considering buying a 2017 or 2018 cruze. I was wondering how the reliability is with these model years. I read that the pcv valve is an issue with the cruzes, but I am not sure if it is an issue with the 2017 and 2018 years or just 2016 and older. Us news gave the 2017 cruze 4 star...
  3. Gen1 Powertrain
    In the market for a low mileage Cruze Eco (180 mile daily commute). I’m finding that a lot of the Eco listings mention that they have recently had clutch/trans work completed. I’ve read that the 14-16 models with the MT have an upgraded clutch/flywheel that was supposed to address these issues...

    A lot of the reliability threads on here aren't very recent. I would really appreciate input on the long term reliability of Cruzes in general and the manual ecos. Thanks in advance for your help.

    Don't know if this is the right place for this post. Rvinyl dash kits for 2011 to 2015 cruze do not properly fit, the pieces are a lot smaller than the surface they are meant to cover. the company will charge you a 20 percent restocking fee even though it is their fault they sent you an...

    Hello everyone, Name's Rob, I'm new to the forum and bought a used 2011 Chevy Cruze LTZ(71,800 miles) about a little over 3 weeks ago. I'm enjoying the new car, but as i keep researching into this model year Cruze I can't help but worry about all the issues this year Cruze has had. Now when I...
  9. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    Just a general question to throw out to the forum. I know many of you rely on your cars to always be up to travel when you need them, especially someone like me who drives a lot. My car, at 108K miles has given me absolutely no indications that it will cause me any trouble any time soon. I...
  10. Gen1 Service Issues
    I just want to start off by seeing if i'm the only one with this many issues. I'll go through with a quick overview of my cars issues from brand new to where it is now 76,000km (47224 miles) so in the life span of this car there have been 3 strut/spring assemblies replaced one at 24,000km...

    Just thought to let you all know that Consumer Reports released its November issue, and the 1.4L turbo Cruze receives a -143% negative score on reliability, ranked second all the way at the bottom of the chart after Fiat 500L. That -145% negative score is much worse than the Chevy Citation from...
  12. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    So far I'm loving mine, it feels like gm finally got it right!!! Got it in June and already in October have 11 k on it. Get lots of compliments about it, no problems so far. Reading a few of these post makes me nervous, I'm hoping to get north of 250 k out of it and would be nice to get 400 k...
  13. Gen1 Service Issues
    I purchased a brand new Cruze LS three months ago with 7 miles on the odometer. In that time I have had the spark plug cover replaced (one of the teeth holding it on broke off somehow so it was sitting crooked), and one major repair (both rear brake drums and shoes fully replaced due to loud...

    Who here thinks GM has a reliability problem yet? Our 2010 Corolla 60,000 miles replaced a wheel bearing 2011 cruze 70,000 miles, Transmission, 2 waterpumps, Valve cover, coil, spark plugs, Numerous leaking gaskets/hoses...

    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. There are way more number of black dots in Cruze's reliability chart published by Consumer Reports than I thought, especially...

    I got my cruze just over a year ago, it was used with 32,000 kms on it so for all intensive puropses pretty much brand new. Before I owned this car I had a vw jetta turbo diesel which was terribly unreliable and a 2006 Chevy aveo which was bullet proof. Nothing on that Aveo broke that wasnt a...

    I know there are not many Consumer Reports fans on the forum. Regardless, I am going to post the latest reliability data that CR complied this year form the 1.1 million car owners who participated in the reliability survey. The 1.8 is a problematic car. Overall reliability was much worse than...
  18. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Hey guys, loving my Cruze LTZ but always have that thirst for more power. :cool: My current performance mods (so to speak) are: Intake res. bypass, K&N drop in panel filter, gapped plugs to .031, and I already run 93 octane. Future planned mods: Injen CAI, Trifecta premium tune, and possibly...

    I can't say I have ever put much faith into Consumer Reports, but they call out the Camaro and Cruze specifically in this article: Yahoo! Anyone know what they received such bad marks on to get that score? Is it specific to an engine/model or the car as a whole? On a side note, I can't...
  20. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I saw that the 1.8L Cruze was listed as Chevrolet's most unreliable car for 2013. It will lose it's recommendation, but does anyone subscribe to the online version that has seen the results for the 1.4 L? I'm assuming that the coolant leaks will hurt it since they are weighted a little more in...
