  1. CruzeTalk New Member Introductions
    I first drove a Cruze as a rental on a trip to the LA area a few years back. I was impressed with the car. Fast forward to my newish car, a 2016 LTZ white over beige leather. It has all the bells/whistles. What I have noticed about he car in the time I have had it is that GM must have studied...
  2. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I know one is a recirculating and the other atmospheric and that the atmospheric requires a tune with it and increases the volume of the turbo. Is that the only difference between the two? Is there no inherent advantage of one over the other?
  3. General Discussion
    Hi everyone! I'm new here, and considering getting a Cruze, they're both RS :) I am in between two choices and looking for opinions on which is the best one. The LTZ has around 9K, the 2LT has around 17,500K miles. They're both red, not my first choice in color but it looks nice on it for sure...

    I've almost always purchased brand new cars even though late model used can often be a much better value especially with today's typically very good reliability/durability, warranties, etc. There is just something 'special' about buying new, though. Plus, it's usually easier to get exactly...

    I picked my car up from the dealership today after some warranty work. I noticed that the silver trim piece on top of the shifter was gauged and scratched, so they swapped it out with another one. I want to make sure I didnt get a ls knob. Does the ls knob have stitching under the button? This...
  6. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    We purchased a Cruze TD in December, and a second a few months later. These cars are used by our 3D printer technician staff and have proved very popular. For the third car we needed, we elected to go with a Cruze Eco that is equipped almost identically to the TD's. It has an automatic (though...
  7. Fuel Economy
    Not the smartest but can't get a logical explanation..... I fill the tank to the same level; 1st click then round off to the next nickel. I use the same station, park at the same bay in the same direction I note the average DIC mpg figure and the accrued milage from the #1 trip screen. I reset...
  8. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    This is mostly a continuation of my post http://www.cruzetalk.com/forum/34-1-4l-turbo/14280-fram-filter-new-drain-plug.html, but decided to start a new thread instead of continue that one. I just did another oil change, and somehow managed to keep my old oil filters long enough to show a...

    In terms of fuel economy, can go 35 miles on one Snickers bar and one bottle of water. How is this for fuel economy?
  10. Fuel Economy
    I just took my longest trip with my new Chevy Cruze LTZ Turbo.Before I went to Non-Ethanol fuel, I could only squeeze 34 mpg out of this car and that included all miles and idling at stoplights and the whole nine yards. The trip was from my house in Mount Olive, NC to a friend's house (12 miles...
  11. Fuel Economy
    I was not sure how to title this thread, but here goes. I wonder why GM uses average MPG calculated at some average speed. This is what is shown on both the trip odometer and on the instantaneous MPG portions of the cluster. I am finding that these tend to be 2-4 MPG above what I have always...

    Cruze 2.0L in India versus 2011 Ford Fiesta 1.5D Titanium Hi, I am from India. Good to see a forum exclusively for the Cruze! I am considering purchasing a Chevrolet Cruze LT 2.0L (the diesel version) but I am closely comparing the technical specifications of this car with those of the Ford...
