    Hey all im looking at purchasing a roof rack with a basket and a trailer hitch for a rear cargo rack. Does anyone have any suggestions or opinions? I do a lot of camping and road trips and it would be nice to have a little extra room in the car. Thanks in advance.

    Welp, another week, another oddity with the Cruze. I have a low pitched squeal upon startup that goes away after the engine is warmed and restarted. Went ahead and captured it this morning in a video. It seems a little low pitched to be belt or bearing related. A forum search recommended that as...

    So my cruze is shifting weird into 3rd gear and makes a weird whining noise in that gear only. The rpms shoot up and drop down real quick going into 3rd. It only does this after car is hot after I've been driving for a while. It shifts perfectly fine when it's cold. The issue happens whether...

    Hi Everyone! So I’ve spent a bunch of time going through the mylink upgrade posts. I’ve decided I want to update my 2012 Cruze ls from the dot matrix display to the mylink w/nav (mostly to retain xm radio). Is there a how-to post on this? All of the ones I found really only discuss the non-nav...

    I just purchased a 2012 Cruze LT. I grew up in a Chevy household, but I've never actually owned one myself until now. After almost 4 weeks of looking at used cars, I stumbled across this Cruze and was surprised that it rated pretty well. I went down and drove it and really enjoyed it. I...

    My question is in regards to my 2016 Chevy Cruze Limited 2LT with Pioneer Premium Audio package. To begin, I plan on eventually replacing the front speakers, tweeters, rear, and rear deck speakers. Debating whether or not to change rear 6x9s as I plan on adding a 12" JL Audio Subwoofer in the...

    Hello all - I've been lurking as I did my research. Our last GM was an '03 Saturn Vue. I currently own a '13 Accord LX 6MT so I didn't really need a 2nd car but GM made me an offer I couldn't refuse! Between their 20% off sale, my 3,000 GM points + a guaranteed $1,000 trade for my beat-to-****...

    Hi everyone, I recently joined the forum because I am seriously considering buying a Cruze and I am looking for some advice. I have my eye on a 2014 1LT with nearly 52,000km (~32k miles) on it and some decent options like a backup camera, but the CarProof (Fax) report indicates that there was...
  11. Gen1 Service Issues
    Hey everyone! Hopefully I'm posting this in the right thread. I changed the battery in my Cruze two days ago (Wednesday April 11th). I drove the car a little bit that evening and everything was fine. Yesterday I went out to do errands with my wife and after a few hours, the blower on the...

    I am selling 4 18x8" TSW Nurburgring wheels wrapped with a 225/45/18 Sumitomo Tour Plus LSW tire. I have used these wheels and tires for 3 summers, only about 8,500 miles, with each tire at about 95% tread life. One wheel has minor curb rash from a tight squeeze in a drive thru.

    Hello, Recently I have noticed several leaks that are developing on my 2012 Chevy Cruze Eco (1.4). I noticed a few drops of oil here and there from parking on the driveway. Looking underneath the car I noticed that there is a coating of oil on the bottom of the engine on the left and right...
  15. Gen1 Powertrain
    Hi all, Figured i'd post about my current misfortunes and see if anyone else has experienced the same symptoms and can offer suggestions. My 11' 2LT with auto trans and 122k miles is slipping mostly in 5th and 6th gear while trying to accelerate. The most common scenario is doing 55 MPH on...

    Just got all of this put together in my 2013 Cruze and it hits so, so much harder than my old 500W RF amp/prefab box that fell apart. Friend did the install on the amp and properly set/tuned the gain way down so as to not harm the single sub (got this amp on a great deal and because I'll be...
