Hello there everyone! I have been peeking at this forum site, for a little while now..figured it's time I join!!
I own a 2014 Chevy Cruze RS LT. Bought it with 17 miles on it from the factory. At the time of purchase, I didn't go into the dealer, looking to get a Cruze...nor a new car for that matter. Ive been driving my old school Chevy -78 Malibu 2dr, for many years as my daily..whether sunshine, rain or snow...I was driving it! I initially didn't like the way the Cruze drove. I've made numerous complaints to where I bought it. It was all in my head they said. Finally, got so fed up...I made a huge stink about it. Had my computer totally wiped out by the dealer....and reprogrammed to my driving style -FAST! Now I'm happy with my Cruze!! I will be adding more power to the Cruze soon. I will post pics up later. Just wanted to get out there and say what up!!!

Welcome to Cruzetalk and congrats on both your Cruze and getting your dealership to zero the transmission learning system.

Thanks! It's funny cuz I talked to few Other Cruze owners and they don't know about that issue that can be fixed...if they're persistent ! I just bought one of those chips. Gonna check that out and see if their Claims are real or false.

If you're talking about performance enhancing chips, they don't work on a computer controlled car. These chips "lie" to the ECU and the ECU eventually figures this out and adjusts for them. The only way to really boost performance is to go with a tuner who changes the mapping tables in the ECU itself.

Thanks for that info! As soon as I made the purchase, I later looked into tuners. When it comes In the mail, I may just return it..and put that 100 bucks, towards a tuner! That is the way to go, and I'm definitely going in that direction to build more power!!
