Can you guys post what brand of oil used, and did you change it by the oil monitor or by mileage?

I was letting the dealer change my 2013 until the powertrain warranty was up.

Thank you for any advice.

I am the original owner since July 2012, and have changed my oil between 7% and 15%. That is usually about 7500 miles. I have been using full synthetic 5w20. I was using pennzoil platinum and now using valvoline max life high mileage full synthetic. Knock on wood, no engine issues at all. Only major component replaced so far was turbo and that was from cracked housing. Bearings were fine. I did replace my oil supply line to the turbo with the insulated line. The original one was clean and no sludge at all, perfectly clean. Keep up with the recommended oil, change when needed do not forget filter. Don't hammer the throttle and it will last.

Finally hit it! Took me over 7 years. I purchased my Cruze in November of 2012. I have taken great care of this car never missing a service or even being late. Used Pennzoil Ultra Platinum every oil change except the two free ones the dealer done. So far it still runs and drives like the first day I bought it. Uses no oil and still on the original breaks! I've enjoyed it and although I've had more problems than I felt I should I don't regret the purchase. Overall its been a great car.

Problem I've had:
Water pump at 17K
Water Pump at 35K
New belt and tensioner at 35K
New ignition switch 60K
New windshield wiper transmission 65K
Oil pressure switch 70K
Oil cooler leak 75K
Resealed oil pan 75K
Purge valve 95K
New plugs at 50 and 90K

A little late requesting the badge, but I did hit 100k a while back. Replaced the timing belt a couple weeks back, and it made me think of getting the badge.

108,000

108,000 on my 2014.
I have followed the maintenance schedule in the owner's manual.
Had new turbo at 50k and intake manifold, PCV at 55k, under warranty.
The transmission had some sort of leak and the dealer replaced some seals at 97k, also covered under warranty.

We have a new series of badges for those members who spend waaay too much time in their driver's seat. These badges start at 100,000 miles and then increment every 50,000 miles to 500,000 miles. Above 500,000 miles we'll increment every 100,000 miles. The current badges are:

Badge:
100,000 miles / 161,000 Km
150,000 miles / 241,000 Km
200,000 miles / 322,000 Km
250,000 miles / 402,000 Km
300,000 miles / 483,000 Km
350,000 miles / 563,000 Km
400,000 miles / 644,000 Km
450,000 miles / 724,000 Km
500,000 miles / 805,000 Km

The Kilometers are rounded to the nearest thousand. The badge is in miles.

To get one of these post a picture of your master odometer. You'll only have one at a time so when you reach the next badge we'll swap in the new badge for you.
Will take a pic later, just hit 105k

Unfortunately with the switch from vBulliten to XenForo software we have lost the ability to award these badges.
