Got a used 2014 Cruze Diesel. I would have liked to buy a new one but, none were available. (talk about under production) Bought it because I think its a cool car. I like the mild Diesel noise letting people know its a diesel. So far I have filled up with a blend of b100 and diesel, about B18.

Welcome to Cruzetalk, looks like you have a good car there. They love pictures if you have some. I have a 2012 Cruze diesel I bought new and still love it.

Welcome aboard. First thing you need to do is tell us about you car ( color, mileage, options etc.) and then get a Scan Gauge 2 ;)

Scan guage 2... Hmm looks useful. I have a feeling this is a high Maintanace car. Bought it with a check engine light on at 21000 miles.

You shouldn't have to do anything more than regular diesel maintenance. Change the oil, add DEF, and follow the recommended maintenance in the owners manual. The Scan Gauge II just helps you keep an eye on the car's regeneration cycle. The diesel particulate filter cleans itself every now and then, and it's a good idea not to interrupt it if possible. But unfortunately the SGII is about the only way to tell when it's doing it.

As far as the check engine light goes, you should have the dealer pull the codes and do any repairs necessary while it's under warranty.

I should. But being this is my only car I'm dreading bringing the car in and it sitting there for days.
