Thanks, got it. Disregard my PM if that's the same document you were referring to.Thanks for the link to Transport Canada. Just logged my official complaint. Hope other owners do to. I also posted some new info in the "First World Problems" thread too.
I just rented a Verano for a week long training trip to Toronto. Yes, the car heats up very quick. It also burns more fuel.This also is affecting all the TRAX suv's but not the Buick Verano. Which means that since the Buick shares the same platform as the Cruze, it all leads back to the 1.4 Liter motor. The Buick uses a much larger displacement motor and it has no issues. In fact, it has great heat. My brother has one.
Should. But if there's a mechanical issue, it won't fix that.Does pulling the fuse and making it relearn resolve this?
What's the alternative? If you track snow in, the same thing will happen regardless of what floor mats you have. The rubber mats just make it easier to dump the snow/water.I'd also like to point out that wet floormats will have an effect. If you get in with a bunch of snow on your feet and it melts and saturates your mats, the moisture will rise and cloud up your windows and eventually freeze if it's cold enough outside. This is one reason why I don't use the rubber floormats(or weathertechs) in the winter. All that snow melts and just leaves puddles of water on your floor after you turn your car off.
I'm not sure. This is the condition the dealer can fix through "re-programming", whatever that involves. If pulling the fuse has the same affect as disconnecting the battery for extended periods, I can say with some confidence it won't help. I had my battery disconnected several times leading up to the discovery....the motor doesn't seem to move the gear enough. Does pulling the fuse and making it relearn resolve this?
It would seem that re-programming the HVAC has cured this issue for several people in the past. I believe the HVAC controls are to blame when the actuator has insufficient travel.Should. But if there's a mechanical issue, it won't fix that.
I have to agree. In my opinion, keeping moisture out of the mats is easier when you can dump them out.If you track snow in, the same thing will happen regardless of what floor mats you have. The rubber mats just make it easier to dump the snow/water.
Isn't there or shouldn't there be a TSB so that the dealer can correct this problem?For some time now there have been many Cruze owners posting about excess moisture inside their Cruze, leading to foggy or frosted up windows that compromise outward visibility. My car was no different and I assumed, as most did, that it was somehow related to the small engine not putting out a lot of heat.
Assuming the outside air is cold, it's not going to have much moisture. And once it warms up in the car, it will be quite dry.Just to clear things up, circulating the air is what fogs up the windows, correct? Dragging the fresh air from outside (even if it's humid) will help remove the foggy windows?
Absolutely. As soon as I corrected the position of the flaps my car defrosted almost immediately.Just to clear things up, circulating the air is what fogs up the windows, correct? Dragging the fresh air from outside (even if it's humid) will help remove the foggy windows?
Have you been able to verify the position of the flaps is correct? Check the videos I posted if you haven't already. With the cabin air filter removed the flaps are easy to see with a flashlight.Isn't there or shouldn't there be a TSB so that the dealer can correct this problem?
My late built Diesel has been doing this here in So Cal ever since I bought it and the dealer has no clue how to correct it!
