    Am I an idiot or is it impossible to turn the headlights off while it's dark?? I saw a moron driving with no headlights at all and I was trying to flash him (off and on, to show him his lights weren't on). And if I wasn't already mad enough... I moved my switch to OFF and... BOING! it springs...
  2. Gen2 Service Issues
    Story time: I live in Minnesota, currently in Arizona due to a family emergency. I had my second warranty oil change/tire rotation done in Utah on the way here. Once we got here last night, I saw the service receipt and noticed that they put 5 quarts of 5w30 in, although the filler cap says...
  3. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    In the opinion of the local diesel experts here, does letting your CTD idle for several minutes to warm up on cold days/nights affect the sensors? Is it a bad thing to do considering the emission issues associated with this car?
  4. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    I know the CTD has a aux heater to make things a bit more comfortable on cold mornings. Two problems, though.. The AuX heater doesn't seam to make much of a difference below -10c and almost always the windows are frozen shut... I was thinking of a small 120v ceramic heater that could be run...
  5. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    What is the trade-off when putting a tune on a vehicle? Am I increasing wear, chance of mechanical failure, etc? I guess the better way to ask the question is, if there is no downside, why doesn't the factory set them up that way?

    How so embarrasing! I've been logging on CruzeTalk via my smart phone for so long that I didnt even realize that I had been entered or even won MOTM for February 2014. I only recently noticed it because I logged into the forum using my home PC. Anyway I would like to humbly thank all of you who...

    Hey everybody new to this forum first post. Got a 2012 lt11.4 turbo. I am not new to turbo cars had a few wrxs but it seems like my bov isn't doing its job...I think... Isn't the whole point to release all the pressure to allow turbo to re spool? It just seems like I cannot hear it nor does my...
  8. Gen1 Service Issues
    Hello to all,I havn't been on in a while,not much spare time. But I figured I would come vent. This cruze has had its share of problems over the almost three years I have owned it. Now another one,and I'm sick of it,but its not worth a **** to trade in and the shop can never seem to fix it...
  9. Lighting
    I thought to replace my headlights with Sylvania Xtravisions. In doing so I had a brain fart removing the the old bulbs and ended up breaking my light sockets. I forgot there was a push button to release it from the bulb and broke it off with a screwdriver. I went to the dealer and they were...

    Knew the alarm would go off, so quickly inserted the key to switch on the ignition, but for some reason that flashing LED kept on flashing. Had to pick up my wife, the door unlock switch wasn't working, so had to pull her door handle twice so she could get in. Then the alarm went off again...

    Hey guys, my wife and I are enjoying our new Cruze a lot, although I have a few stupid questions about MyLink. First of all, anybody ever have the audio from your phone just stop streaming? My phone indicates that the music is playing, but there isn't anything audible through the speakers...
  12. Gen1 Appearance, Body, Detailing, & Interior
    Not too long ago I got a flat tire. I've been waiting for the replacement from tirerack, but until then have been using the equipped spare tire. Forgetting that the car now sits lower on the front side where the spare is, I ended up scraping my front bumper. Absolutely ridiculous considering how...

    The dome light does not come on when I open my door. I cannot find the setting that allows me to do this. I have a 2011 chevy cruze. Can anyone help me out?

    Lost my drivers side mirror cover and got my first smal dent on the cruze last night.with in the first 5 mins of the storm a big branch came down and smacked the car..... WTF !!!!
  15. General Discussion
    Let's face it, we weren't born with a wrench in our hands. While some of us have a good understanding of automotive mechanics, sound systems, and other car-related topics, we didn't always know as much as we do. There was a time in my life when I didn't know what a header was, and I couldn't...

    Where the &*)@ is my '12 LS's data plate? It's not on the doors or B pillar or under the hood, and that cuneiform tablet stuck to the glovebox lid doesn't look like anything I'd call a data plate.
  17. General Discussion
    Why would a design engieer put gas tank on right side of car? When I fill up, I have to go around the car to get to the tank. Why would a design engineer put the door locks way over by the radio? If I have to lock the car without the keys, I have to bend over and reach past the steering wheel...
  18. Gen1 Audio & Electronics
    Alright, Just like the title states. I have a stupid question. Where is the battery at in the cruzes. I can't find mine. Unless I am blind(which is possible). Or I just haven't looked hard enough. LOL Thank you to whomever answers this.

    Just bought my cruze on saturday. Today driving to work I was looking at the sun and it didn't bother me, like I had on sun glasses. I know my old cobalt and charger don't do that. Does the window have some sort of sun tint on it? Very nice suprise as I have to drive east in the morning and west...

    Hi Guys, This is probably a stupid question but I am going to fire it off. I drive the Cruze 1.6LS and drive almost 95% city peak hour. My average consumption was 13.8l/100km which is really high. I started driving and not letting the revs go over 2500 -3000rpm and it dropped to...
