  1. Gen1 Service Issues
    Does anyone else have issues with their Gen 1 Cruze wipers? Particularly on the drivers side blade, my blade does not run smooth across the windshield. It's like it skips/judders. I have tried numerous wiper blades, including styles and brands, and they all seem to have issues. The ones that...

    Not sure if it's ok to do, but here in South Florida, the first thing to go on a car is the windshield wipers. Being in full sunlight every day, with temps of over 130F at times, they start cracking and hardening really fast (usually a year or two). So I applied a bit of this plastic/rubber...

  5. Gen2 Service Issues
    Hi, I live in Australia and I have a Holden 2011 SRI-V Cruze sedan I bought last week. Its done 100,000km and is driving well, performance and handling are great. However I noticed sometimes (usually when I've driven the car for a while, stopped and then started it again with the engine still...

    It seems I have replaced the wipers on my car at least 2 or 3 times. First time I used Anco Aero Advantage Wipers and then the Trico Exact fit blades and both of which seem to give out/streak easily. Last night I found some new blades that are(or at least seem) much better. Trico Flex blades...

    I wonder how many Cruze owners realize that when you have your headlights set to Auto, and when you have the wipers on (even 'intermittent) that your headlights will automatically go from Daytime Running Lights (DRL) to Full headlight mode with the taillights and side lights going on? Also, a...

    Finally replaced my two windshield wipers. 1st time since I bought the car. 2012 ECO with 73,000 miles on it. What a difference! Don't be cheap and try to get some off-brand. My wipers were only $12 each.
  9. Gen1 Service Issues
    I noticed my windows fogging up even this morning on a sunny dry day. I checked the trunk and the metal was damp with droplets, but could not see or feel any wet carpet or foam. It rained pretty good last night when my wife drove it and parked it in the garage. I also noticed this a couple weeks...
  10. Gen1 Service Issues
    This weekend it was raining hard and when I parked the car in the garage I shut it off with the wipers still on. They stopped in mid stroke. The next day I got in and started the car shut off the wipers and they did not stop in the full bottom position. Several tries turning them on and off...

    So the other day my passenger side wiper stopped working, and now today the driver side stopped working and is now stuck vertically on my windshield....any clues on how to fix this problem? I know it's not frozen, but when I hit the lever to activate the wipers it only moves about a quarter inch...

    Anyone using the Bosch Clear Advantage beam style wiper blades? I recently decided to replace the wiper blades on my wife's Grand Prix, and decided to get a set for the Cruze as well since my originals were starting to streak. I have had good experiences with beam style blades in the past and...

    So i was driving home yesterday in a "heavy flurry", unplowed highways in about 2 inches of snow, couldn't see the pavement, 2 lane highway becomes 1 20mph highway, you get the picture. Anyway, right off the bat my wipers are garbage. I always lift them before work when snow/ice is coming, yet...
  14. Gen1 Service Issues
    So we had a nice cold snap here, went to hit the wiper fluid and the wipers, no dice.. Thought hrm, it may be frozen, or the fluid was low.. Fluid was low, but not empty, topped off the tank, let it sit for a bit an warm up, thinking that if it was frozen that would be the case.. No dice...
  15. Gen1 Service Issues
    So, its been dry and sunny for 2 weeks in the UK, glorious weather but the weather has deteriorated and we've had light rain the last day or 2 and today we have had some heavy downpours, heaviest of the year. As my Cruze seems to hate me, it decided to snap the part that connects the wipers to...

    First off the most annoying thing. My 11' LTZ had BRAND NEW wipers on the car when i bought it and the driver side one (24inch one) would skip and make all kind of noise ALL the time regardless of weather. It was bosch wiper blades on the car. Not sure the 'model' of the wiper, but the kind that...
  17. Gen1 Appearance, Body, Detailing, & Interior
    Can someone kindly direct me to what kind of wipers these are? The little rubber piece that connects the wiper to the windshield is almost completely peeled off my passenger side wiper. I'll blame it on 4 months of winter, road salt, and fluid. Grrrrrr!

    The Cruze windshield wiper system is quite excellent. Maybe it's the acoutically treated windshield but my car's wipers are totally smooth and quiet. Just a very satisfying soft "thump" when they change direction. Sometimes I obsess about the sorts of sounds my vehicles make, like the way the...
  19. Gen1 Service Issues
    I went to go replace my windshield wipers for the first time on my 2011 LT and noticed that it has a substancial plastic part attached to the driver's side blade. My guess is that it is for using the wind to push the blade against the windshield. But, the part looks to large to just throw...

    Gonna buy some new wipers today, and wanted to find out what everyone else uses and what they think. Has anyone found what wipers are best for our Cruzes?
