  1. CruzeTalk New Member Introductions
    I just purchased a 2012 Cruze LT. I grew up in a Chevy household, but I've never actually owned one myself until now. After almost 4 weeks of looking at used cars, I stumbled across this Cruze and was surprised that it rated pretty well. I went down and drove it and really enjoyed it. I...

    I''ve looked at the DIY thread about swapping trans fluid, but I can't view any of the pictures, I think it's a photobucket problem. Could anyone link pictures of tthe drain plug i need to take out to empty the fluid?

    I bought my Cruz Eco (2013, manual 6 spd, 4 door) 4 years ago and absolutely love it. I thought the acceleration in 3rd gear and overall mileage was great and the car has been problem free. Just paid off the loan and was thinking of going for a 2017. A bit confused by all the new models. I...
  4. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Hi. Cruzer: I have damaged my oil pan plug. I will ask a local shop to change oil this time. The shop is charging $39.99+tax for the synthetic oil change. They also charge $3 for the stripped oil pan plug. I do not know if they will use the original plug. I want to buy the plug myself. I went...
  5. Gen1 Wheels, Tires, Brakes, & Suspension
    I am hearing a thumping sound coming from the front end. I can feel it in the floor, not in the wheel - there is no shimmy. I just had the tires rotated as I was told that's what it was... that didn't help. if anyone has had this issue, can you give me suggestions as to what to have checked...
  6. Gen1 Powertrain
    my radiator sounds like a helicopter, engine isn't actually overheating, check engine light is on.. Is this code for sure thermostat? should I be looking at anything else? also does anyone know if this is covered under powertrain warranty? I took it in to a certified chevy dealer and they said...

    I was told, the other day, that the 7 spd front wheel drive transaxle will not be built in Toledo (home of the current 6 spd auto). Don't know where it will be assembled either. Toledo will be building the forthcoming 9 spd. front wheel drive transaxle though.

    Folks, First car I've purchased in 25 years! Had an '88 Dodge Caravan with 310,000 miles -- hope to make the Eco a keeper. I think I got a great deal on the car. The only add on package was the driver convenience, because I really wanted the backup camera. I had checked prices online...
  9. Gen1 Service Issues
    To start off my car has approx. 2700 miles. I love the car so far except... My trans shifts like GARBAGE. I was driving up the coast with my girlfriend on our way to vacation in the car. We were stuck in slow moving 5-20 mph traffic on the highway. And the trans had NO IDEA what to do...
  10. Fuel Economy
    I just thought, after using my 2011 2LT 1.4LT with a 6spd auto in manual mode, why would I want a 6 spd MT???? I can shift and run at minimal rpm (1250 rpm 6th gear on level ground). So, why get the manual? Does it have a higher top gear with lower rpm at 60 mph?
  11. Gen1 Service Issues
    Has anyone contacted their dealer or GM about the Cruze shifting harshly or slowly? I have found a number of articles about the gasoline powered Cruze with the auto having harsh shifts under heavy accelaration and cold temperatures. I have been experiencing this with mine, but thought it was...
