  3. I wanna buy a lift for the garage, thoughts and suggestions solicited

    Off Topic Discussion
    I would like my fellow forum member’s input on a new lift for my personal shop. As some friends already know, I spent most of my cash in 2017 building a 4000sq ft building to house my car hobbies. As I try and pay “cash for toys”, this was a long time coming and has also left me cash poor for...

    Gen2 Diesel General Discussion
    Hey, new member and prospective buyer here. I'm not new to diesels at all, but my VW TDI recently got damaged and I'm thinking about options for upgrading. I'm researching and haven't really seen any comparisons of the Cruze diesel yet, so thought I'd ask. What are the major differences? Are...
  6. EFILive Flashscan V2, thoughts?

    Gen2 Diesel General Discussion
    Every so often I hit the search to find out if a good diesel tuner has come out and stumbled across this. I wanted to know if anyone knew any info about this or had tried it? Information seems to be sparse. I’d love to squeeze a little more power from my Cruze diesel hatch manual without...

    General Discussion
    Been looking around for a gauge to monitor everything. Has anyone used this gauge before? Considering it to save the hassle of running the plumbing for a mechanical gauge.
  8. Getting P0533 code while testing broken AC, 2012 LS Model. Thoughts?

    Gen1 Service Issues
    So i took my wife's Cruze in to figure out why the AC isn't working and this is what we found: 1: We vacuumed out the system then charged it back up again. Couldn't see or hear any leaks of any sort even though the system only had about .3 psi in the system when i brought it in. 2: When we...

  10. Thoughts on DPF delete on my 14 CTD

    Gen1 Diesel Technical Discussion
    So I’m 6 months into owning my diesel Cruze and love it. Haven’t had any issues with any emissions related components yet and only had to fill the DEF once. I know in due time it’ll cause problems (egr, dpf, etc). My question is does anyone here on the forum have a delete on their diesel Cruze...

    General Discussion
    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...

    Off Topic Discussion
    My 16 Cruze LT is getting the 2 recalls done, and they gave me a 17 Equinox. My wife has a 09 CRV EX-L, so I'm trying not to compare to my car, but to the CRV. Pros - 1. Quieter than CRV, but not even close to the Cruze 2. Big and roomy 3. Quick acceleration, has the V6 Cons - 1...
  20. Thoughts on this alternative to deleting

    Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    I was just reading the delete thread and thought I'd post an idea I have as a VERY inexpensive alternative to a delete tune. It consists of 2 things: 1. The ability to do a manual regen. 2. The ability to disable the "countdown to death". All other things being equal, this might cost a...
