    So I've washed, waxed, sanded and repainted overly rusty areas, air filters, and shock plugs replaced, tired rotated, is there any fuel additive is should run to clean any impurities, I notice the car runs bad with less than an ideal amount of gas(idk if anyone else has this observation) I've...

    Question 1 How much tread depth do you consider good / safe for winter driving? The Assurance Authority tires the previous owner of my vehicle had didn't wear evenly (overinflated hypermiler?), so right now I have about 5/32 on the outer, and 3/32", maybe 4/32" on the inner. I thought I might...

    Hi All, Just switched over to my winter tires: 16 inch General Altimax Arctics mounted on steel rims. Am wondering if anyone has a suggested winter pressure setting. Tire placard on door jamb recommends 30 PSI but I found that to lead to very poor MPG/L per 100 kms. Thoughts?

    I have a 2014 Cruze LTZ, RS edition. I'm looking for tires for the winter. Would all weather tires be appropriate or will they affect the performance of the car?

    Each time I go into Discount Tire they make a big stink about me declining to pay 8 bucks a tire to rebuild the TPMS sensors and it usually turns into a scene with the sales guy and me. I have a 2012 Cruze and they have already been rebuilt once however every 6 months when I bring it in to swap...

    Using the stock steel rims for winter tires & getting new rims for the stock tires Hi! I am thinking about getting winter tires for the first time. I am wondering if I can use my stock 16" steel rims for them instead of buying new steel rims for the winter tires. If I can, that means I can...

    I have a used set of Husky Liner (made in USA) fronts if you want a cheap set for the winter. The front driver liner attachment area tore through when I tried to remove them once, it still holds in place just fine. The passenger is great since the set was only used for one winter. $50 shipped...

    I need to get a set of winter tires/rims this fall, and my dealer has 2 packages for the Cruze: 1. General Altimax Arctic 2. Michelin X-Ice Xi3 ($70 adder) Both are 215/60/R16 Anyone with either of these have any input? Worth upgrading to the Michelins?
  9. Gen1 Diesel Technical Discussion
    I overheard a conversation about Diesel Fuel Gelling and decided to look it up. Quote from Google search: "At 32 degrees, the wax in liquid form will crystallize and leave the fuel tank clouded. At 10-15 degrees, it will finally start to gel and clog the tank and fuel filters." Living in...

    I can do all the research I want, but it's better to hear from Cruze drives. I drive my car about 5-7k a year. I don't want or need a 100k touring or eco tire. What do you recommend for the best winter grip that is not a snow tire?

    Or am I just being overly optimistic?

    Hello all - this is my first post and on a mundane, boring topic, but I'm helping my sister with her 2011 LTZ. I helped my sister get setup with winter wheels and tires and new TPMS sensors for the winter wheels. I ordered sensors Dorman 974-009 from amazon which run at 315mHz. She has...

    We hit 73F yesterday! My gas mileage is back! Running 75-77 on cruise control up I95. All windows down - had to enjoy the nice weather. Ha, winter gas.

    Alrighty so I bought my Cruze back in May of last year and the snow was almost all melted away. Managed to keep the car nice and pretty throughout the summer minus a few rock chips. This winter is beating the crap out of her though. I noticed that just in front of the rear wheel wells it looks...

    I understand that in hot weather there is an advantage to running higher octane. But when it is 20 F or colder, does 89 really add anything over 87 octane? Interested in your input. thanks, Joe

    I put michelin x-ice xi3 tires on my ctd and the car is absolutely horrible in the snow. I'm worried the second I see a flake. I would like for any of you guys who get storms with about 6"+ of snow to chime in on what tires you use and your opinions on them. I'm so angry at my michelins that...

    Hey everyone. I have a '12 cruze LT auto with a computer remote start. I've noticed that after 15 minutes of it being started the car is barely warmed up, like 2 or third small line on the temp gauge. Has anyone experienced this and is there a fix. The coolant recall has been done according...

    After debating between the Michelin X-Ice, Bridgestone Blizzak WS80, and the Nokian Hakka R2, I decided on the Michelins in the stock size of 215/55-17. In southeastern MI, we don't get a lot of snow, and therefore, I will be doing a lot of dry pavement driving in the winter. I didn't want...

    I've searched some and it sounds like there really isn't an option for center caps for steel rims (winter tire/wheel setup)? I guess I'm wondering if running with that area of the axle exposed is going to lead to issues from snow/water/salt etc? I would also like to get some lug nut caps to...

    I just got a 2014 Cruze LT with no remote start/heated seats/heated mirrors. Unlike my last car, I will be parking outside. I live in indiana and we have pretty harsh winters here. I was wondering if you guys have any tips on things I should be purchasing to manage the snow and ice that will...
