    How much will the cruze tow
  2. Gen1 Powertrain
    I'm curious if anyone has used the Cruze to tow half a yard of dirt or gravel. I am digging a french drain and really don't want to pay the delivery fees - the gravel place is about one mile from my house. Any experience?

    ok so going some searching i have found that the general conciseness is 1,000 lbs trailer including the trailer for the eco and 1.4 gasers. now we have way more torque, a stronger 6 speed, bigger front and rear brakes, we are heavier thus more stable. i could see the diesel towing maybe 1,500lbs...

    Any of you guys put a hitch on your cruze yet? If so which one did you choose and are you liking it so far?

    I've rented the uhaul motorcycle trailer and the Cruze can tow it an my bike around Phoenix well, but you definately feel the additional load. With a 300lb motorcycle, the trailer felt like it was overkill, so I built a hitch mounted dolly for the bike. It is also a lot easier to store in my...

I had to store it for the winter as I had no trailer, winter gear or anything for the winter... The atv is now ready to be ridden in winter ( windshield, winch, etc... ) however I'm not...

    Does anyone have experience towing a uhaul trailer with the manual transmission eco? I'm getting ready to move and I can save about $500 by going with a trailer instead of a truck.

    Thought I would share my experience towing my small camper with this thing. What an awesome car, really handled it well for the most part. i used the curt hitch which fits great, and the curt trailer wiring adapter. The camper is 7 wire and the adapter is a 4 wire with a small control box. I...

    Good day, Straight to the point, I'd like to know what would be your input or experience on towing with the Trifecta tune. Looking to see if the extra boost would arm the vehicle when under extra pressure of towing a small trailer with a motorcycle. Not looking to go 100mph while towing just...

    How strong are these cruze transmissions for towing? The manual states you can tow up to 1,000 lbs but doesnt mean you should. I just purchased a jet ski + trailer and was wondering if i could occasionally tow it with my cruze. Has anybody towed frequently with the cruze with or without...

    I did it. I hitched up a 4x8 utility trailer trailer to my Eco MT, and went for it. And...... Everything's fine. It turns out that the Eco MT makes a pretty good tow vehicle for a little 4x8 utility trailer. The Eco gearing with its super-short 1st is perfect for getting 600 lbs of...

    I plan to tow my manual transmission Eco with my new motorhome when I get it, so I thought I'd "practice" pulling the four fuses required by the owners manual (22, 23, 24 and 25). I won't be doing that again - too much trouble - but, will be installing two fuse switches to handle the four fuses...

    I've found some references to not towing boats, and towing with a manual. Nothing close to what I need to know. I'm looking to tow my Kendon single slot Motorcycle trailer occasionally with my '11 LT auto. The trailer weighs around 750 total with the heaviest bike loaded. I don't tow often...

    First post, be gentle. I was looking at the Diesel Jetta TDI's and I was pretty psyched. Until I saw all the HPFP issues. I could never afford an 8k dollar replacement when I couldn't control if it goes bad or not. Anyways I know the Jetta is used to tow often and I am interested in getting...

    It's camping season here, so I thought I'd ask people to share their towing experiences. What are you towing? What mods have you done to the car (transmission coolers, brakes etc.). What's your gas mileage like with the trailer? Feel free to post pictures.
