Bought a used 2011 Cruze LT 1.4 a few years ago and have had nothing but problems. The newest problem is it sounds like I'm flying an airplane. The further I drive it the louder it gets. Vibration in floor and pedals, check engine light on and a small oil leak from turbo area. Turbo was replaced in February of this year. Anyone have any ideas ? I really can't afford another repair.

The 2011 was the first model year for the Cruze in the US. It's had more than it's share of problems getting settled in.

What kind of vibration? Which direction is it going? The mental picture I'm getting suggests a problem with the tires causing the car to "wobble". You could check your tires. Pat the tread all around the tire. Once you're sure there's no steel belt sticking out, you can run you hand over the tread to make sure it's smooth. If you find a lump, that's likely your problem. If nothing is found, move the car enough to rotate the tires 180 degrees and repeat.


check engine light
Some auto parts places will pull the codes for you for free. We'd need the codes to know what's going on.

There's a number of possibilities. The oil feed tube might leak where it's connected. Or it might be something else. I don't think it's your big problem at the moment. Just make sure the oil level is kept up and you do your oil changes.

Yes, a new turbo leaking should go back to whoever replaced it (unless you don't trust them and are willing to pay someone else).

I'm guessing the Power Train warranty might be up? That would cover the turbo, but I don't know as it would cover the wheel bearings.
