  1. Gen1 Service Issues
    This morning the passenger side wiper stopped working on our 2015 Cruize. I took the necessary parts off to get to the problem at hand. Below I have an imgur album link to show where the issue is. The rod popped off of the lever that drives the passenger side wiper blade. The problem is I have...

    Note the squeaking noise along with the clapping. The noises seem to go away after about 20 minutes. Any thoughts on what it could be? https://streamable.com/jtz56

  8. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Poking around the engine compartment of my '12 Eco, I found what appears to be significant corrosion on the wastegate actuator rod where it is exposed to the elements. It's not enough to cause it to fail yet, but it is a concern long term. The rust was advanced enough to be flaky, so I'm...

    So the Cruze lost a battle against the storms Friday night. I was driving in a really bad rain storm (couldn't even see 10 ft in front of you) and all of a sudden "SPLASH!" I notice I'm in a lake of water in this street. Dud, car dies. Some friends help me push it out and we immediately pull the...
