    It might need a resistor, canbus harness or the light is defective? Can anyone tell if the resistor or harness already installed? Here’s a video of the flickering light https://youtu.be/EgWMEhScEA4
  2. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    A few weeks ago I brought my 14 Cruze Diesel (74K miles) to an autobody repair shop for a fender bender repair which took a few weeks. Today I went to pick up the car but on my way there, the owner of the shop calls me and says hes got good news and bad news... the good news is the body work...
  3. Gen1 Service Issues
    Looking for someone that has access to a shop service software. Trying to get an estimate on Head Gasket repair and don’t want to pay through the nose at a dealer or get ripped by an Indy. It’s a 2011 1.4 with 75k that has been overheated. It has a brand new AC Delco water pump, t-stat, serp...

    '17 CTD 7k mi. Today I went in for my first oil change and the technician noticed an exhaust leak at the waste gate near the turbo. It's small enough it can't be heard, but big enough it's spewing soot everywhere. Pics below. Obviously it's still under warrantee so the plan is to drop it off...
  6. Gen1 Service Issues
    Oh I need some good advice. Purchased a 2015 Cruze used of course 2/20/17. 39339 miles. Was a rent a car. Next day bringing car to dealership to get cleaned. Service light on and white smoke from engine coming out. Take to service department, seal on radiator is gone and antifreeze spilled...

    Hi everyone, After driving my wife's Hyundai Elantra over the weekend I was reminded why I chose the Cruze for myself. Before buying our pre-owned Cruze eco, I was the one driving the Elantra. When it was time to finally upgrade her ride, I (selfishly) wanted something nicer than the Hyundai so...

  9. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Dropped the Cruze off this morning with the dreaded starter clacking/grinding again. They replaced the cam actuators and intake (cracked) a few months ago but the problem came right back. We'll see what it is this time. Might be driving home with a camaro depending on the issue. :D

    Got home from work after being gone for 4 days to this dent in my trunk lid, right on the edge above the Chevy emblem... Looks like someone hit it with their fist or something soft since the paint isn't even scuffed. My comp deductible is $500, so I'm wondering if a PDR shop can repair stuff...

    Used alldata.com before for other vehicles with pleased results. Found a coupon on the web to get a two year subscription for my 2012 2LT for $12.95. With hopes they redid the electrical circuit diagrams to show a complete diagram of a particular circuit so I could get a full picture. But to...
  14. Gen1 Wheels, Tires, Brakes, & Suspension
    So I drive 2013 Cruze and bought a set of Styluz m542. And as the shop was putting them on for me the rear wheels went on perfectly and looked dope. But as they tried putting on the front they were saying the calipers or wheel hub were making the wheels not flush or balanced... something along...

    It would seem like the only reason I come here is to post negative stories about my Cruze. Well, that's the truth. I stopped coming here with happy stories of my Cruze because the car just isn't making me happy anymore. I have to worry whether it'll get me back and forth from work. This...

    Howdy. How many times in the shop is considered excessive for a 2011 Cruze, I'm the second owner, and have owned it one year? Water pump replaced twice, in the shop 6 times for antifreeze fumes in cabin (fumes are still there), in the shop 3 times for various transmission problems - which are...

    My car has been in the shop for 2 weeks in the past month. First for a slipping transmission and having the 2/6 clutch replaced, then the water pump failed, "cross hose connector" failed, and some random other things that needed replacing when the water pump failed, so needless to say going out...

    Seeing as I can't do the trifecta tune and don't have a laptop.... I did find a shop that dyno tunes GM corvettes,camaro's, dodge challengers, and mustangs. I haven't called or visited the shop yet so I don't know if they can/or no experience tuning a cruze or not, so we'll see. From what I read...
