    Hey everyone, Just towed my 2014 LTZ behind my motor home on a dolly. Front wheels up, steering wheel strapped in place as per the owners manual. Unloaded and had ABS and Stabilitrack lights on accompanied with a burning rubber smell as it idled. CONCERNED!! I drove it around the campground...

    I have my 2018 Cruze LT set up to tow behind my motorhome. I've taken it on a few short trips with no problems so far. I have a Blue Ox tow bar and an Air Force 1 braking system. When the tow system was installed a line was run back to charge the car battery so I don't need to pull any fuses...

    Hi! Does anybody know what thread the tow hook is? Looking for a tow hook plate mount but unsure of what ours is!

    I'm considering buying a Cruze instead of an SUV since I've heard it can tow. I'm pretty certain my camper dry weight is 1000 lbs. Can I tow that with a Cruze? What class hitch would I need? Any advice welcome. We only tow it a couple times a year if that.

    I have a 2013 Cruze LT and yesterday evening it developed what seems to be a burning oil odor. Can smell outside the car and inside, with the air/blower on. I have an appointment at the Chevy Dealer in a couple of hours. Question, which I know it's really up to me but would like some feedback...

    Brought home this little 5x8 guy today from Tractor Supply that's $100 off through April 6th for $749. I know there's a handful of diesel guys who have hitches and I want to check out your tow setups!

    Hello everyone, I know I am somewhat bringing up a topic that has already been discussed, but I don't think a conclusion has ever been drawn. WHY was the tow rating removed from the Cruze Eco? If you don't know why and are just speculating, please refrain from posting for the time being. I...

    Wasn't that bad, just about a six inch drift, but over softer ground at the airport. If the Cruze had someplace to hook a tow chain to, would have been out in two seconds. But it don't. So we got a snow plow to clear all around it, then a lot of heavy snow shoveling and man power pushing...

    I want to add a front tie down for the front bumper. I would prefer to be comparable with the official GM tow hook, so I am curious if anyone could measure the thread for me. I found some random Mazda thread suggesting theirs is M10x1.5, however the quality of the discussion was not top notch.

    Forget this post. Dealership lied to me about them.

    My daughter and I bought our Cruze TDs at the same time and both of us agree...it's an awesomely good daily driver. She's moving this week and thought she would have a trailer hitch installed and tow my small "sound equipment" trailer. I told her to go for it. She did, and it seems the little...

    I was out playing in the snow with my Cruze doing all sorts of stunts, then went home. After getting home i was thinking that i should probably find my towing points just so I know where they are before going out again and getting stuck. Guess what? There aren't any! Am i missing something or...

    I've been chomping at the bit to get at this car since I heard it was coming out. One of the main reasons I wanted a Cruze diesel is that I have this little 1,060 lb camper that I pull and with my Pontiac Vibe (see photo below) With 2 people and gear, it's pretty close to the 1,500 load limit...

    Not too pleased today with GM or Roadside Service. Last night around 8 pm something in the drivetrain broke, just after shifting into 3rd gear on my 12 Eco. I have no idea what let loose, but coasted the car to a stop just off of a fairly busy road. Used Onstar to call Roadside service and was...

    On my way to work today I saw a Chevy Cruze that got into a minor accident and what came to my mind at the time was, whats the best way to tow a Cruze? In the Cruze owners manual does Chevrolet state the recommended way to tow these cars or what?
