Hopefully it has to do with the exhaust leak at the turbo but doesn't really sound like it. Best not lower power output or negatively effect mpg or we should be entitled to money back.

That letter reads like they found a software bug in the ECU.

Could it be that the recall is only for Canadian vehicles? I haven't received anything yet for my USA-market car. I also have 16+ thousand miles on mine, and it's working beautifully. Still averaging over 52 MPG for all of those miles, too.

Howdy;

I’m getting my ‘17 Cruze TD serviced as I type this, and getting the recall done as well.
I WAS getting phenomenal fuel economy, up to this point. I hope the software update doesn’t screw it up.
Cheers

When I went to get my first oil change (which was a saga on its own) I asked if there was any recalls and was told no. Is there a service bulletin or recall number? I would be really scared of letting the dealer do anything in my car their knowledge about the Cruze Diesel it's about none.

So, oddly enough, when they went to perform the update/recall, the computer said I already had the proper version.
The service writer told me they’ve only had to update a few, the majority they’ve seen are already “updated”

FYI I live in Manitoba, got the car Mid September.
This was my first service.
Love the car, but the DEF tank is TOO SMALL.
Cheers

Unfortunately no. I gotta add 9L or so every 4500km or so.
Bit annoying considering I only have to add DEF every oil change in my EcoDiesel (about 30L/16k km).

Don’t expect the Cruze to have a 30L tank, but every 4500km? Yuck

Anyone know how big the tank is?

On my Gen 1 diesel it's about 17 litres and it gets me about 20,000 km on the DEF filled in it. Maybe the Gen2 consumes more? I remember seeing a thread about this topic. Not sure where it was or what the outcome was.

From what I’ve read here about DEF capacities, Gen 1 = 4.5 gal (17 Litres) and Gen 2 = 3.8 gal (14.4 Litres).

Did you get a second letter saying it was available? The letter in the first post said it wasn't available yet.

It sounds like the ECM doesn't detect a fault condition, so it seems unlikely to affect anyone's experience unless they had a fault and didn't know it.

Just the one letter saying my car has been recalled for emissions and needed software update.
My service papers said it had the correct update already installed.

How can you guys tell how much def is left? I've got just over 6200km on mine and the def screen just says "ok". Mine is a city/highway mix but typically short trips under 55km. I also drive fairly conservatively so I'm not sure how that effects consumption.

Gen 1 says ok until I get to 35% then counts down, assume gen 2 would be similiar.
