Hey if you could repost this in the Gen 2 section or ask a mod to move it. Some of those things sound familiar with the older units as well!
It is a gen 1. With that being said, you said familiar?! Lol elaborate please ?Hey if you could repost this in the Gen 2 section or ask a mod to move it. Some of those things sound familiar with the older units as well!
Yeah, somehow I misread it and I am sorry. The Cruze Steering has been known to drift, almost fall asleep Can't speak for the Misfire, check your plugs, and the alignment can be off causing it to pull. A lot of Rotor issues with the CRUZE. This was an interesting thread about sleeping steering. I need those new Glasses?:uhh:A '16 Limited is a Gen1, isn't it?
I've owned the car now for about 8000 miles or like 3 or 4 months. I was told to by a tech at the dealership to ride out the brakes as long as possible so when I did get them taken care of they would have todo the pads too BUT wouldn't you think after 8k anything stuck to the rotors would have worn off? Regardless my pull was really bad last night (enuff to have steering wheel tilt slightly to left) and now tonight it was straight and I didn't really feel a pull? Sticky caliper? Tire pressure was 34 LF 35RF 34 L,R Rear. I also have a notchy feel in the wheel on the highway sometimes I've noticed but from what I've read it was a problem before but was supposedly fixed/cured? Any insight on weather it is or could still be an issue? I understand diag from waaayy over there in the other screen is hard lol but I'd like just alittle ammo cause my dealer likes to pretend they don't have any issues at all ever even if I take them and show them. Had a tranny going out in a 12 and they swore up and down it was fine till one day they came and picked up the car with only 1st gear lol. So I need alittle bit of push back for when they tell me I'm an idiot and to go home.The brake pulsation (on a new vehicle) is generally the result of rusted rotors, known in the industry as 'Lot Rot'.
It is the result of disuse while waiting for a buyer........while sitting, anything that gets the brakes wet, like a (several) rainstorm(s) will dampen the metallic components mixed in the brake pad material.
Ultimately the pads actually adhere to the rotor, which will have a coating of rust as well.
When the car is finally moved, the pad to rotor interface breaks free.....sometimes with a audible 'pop'.
When the interface breaks, a microscopic layer of pad material shears off the pad but remains on the rotor.......you will actually be able to see a perfect shadow of the pad on the rotor face......inner, outer, or both sides and often, both rotors on the affected axle......in this case, the front system.
Since the layer adhered to the rotor is the same material that the pad is made up of, use of the car (and brake application) will not 'clear' the material.
The pulse you feel is actually the pad riding up and over the material attached to the rotor.
In this case, a skin cut of the rotor, just enough to eliminate the shadow mentioned before, is appropriate. The actual cut depth is minute and should have no effect on rotor lifespan.
For any readers: anytime you wash the car (and wheels), do not just put the car away without taking a lap around the block to heat and dry off the pads and rotors......usually a good wash floods the pad area and sets the car up for the same situation described above.
A quick trip drys things off nicely.
Sometimes, you'll be talking cars to someone and they will tell a story along the lines of the brakes were smooth yesterday, but are madly pulsing today.......ask if they washed the car before the incident....most of the time the answer is 'Yes'.
There is a fair chance the pull described is related but until the rotors are cleaned up, no additional diagnosis can occur.
Good luck and congrats on the new car,
Pedal may feel low(ish) while the pads re-bed to the, now smooth, rotor face. This will take around a hundred miles or so of around town braking.Well it's been through the dealer. They put the rotors on a lathe. I asked how thick they where I was told "they still have plenty of meat left" the vibration is gone, breaks seem Abit low now meaning I have to press the peddle in kinda deep to see a response. Oil change, tire rotation, and a Update to the steering module. Thanks everyone!
