I've been reading the forum since I bought my cruze in 2014 but have yet to join. I have a 2011 chevy cruze ls with Mt. I have added cruise control plan to do fog lights at tax time! Other mods include k&n drop in, led conversion for all bulbs except headlight, and sub with amp. My car has 95xxx. I drive 64 miles round trip for work and used to use the car to deliver pizza. Love my car.

Welcome to the forum!

I also added an amp/subs to my car, and swapped out all bulbs besides headlights with LEDs! And I used to deliver pizza with my Cruze too. The only thing I didn't like about it as a delivery vehicle was the inability to separate the key from the key fob. When I delivered with my Cobalt I could leave the key in and the car running but take the key fob with me and lock the doors. That way I could leave the AC/heat running, save wear and tear on the starter, keep the headlights on in dark situations, and warm up my car when it was snowy/icy without worrying about someone stealing stuff out of my car or stealing the car itself.


I felt bad for driving my Cruze hard, then shutting off the engine. Turbo vehicles prefer a little cool down time before shut-down to avoid boiling the oil in the hot turbo. Luckily the Cruze has a system that pumps oil even after you shut the car off, I could often hear a whining noise coming from the engine bay after getting out. Besides that, averaging 25-32 in harsh stop-go city conditions was pretty nice! Now I'm a Quality Engineer and use my Cruze for commuting only.

What brand leds did you use in your car? All mine are sylvania zevo except for reverse lights. My reverse lights are phillips. I love the additional light output of the reverse led lights! Wish I would have had them when delivering pizza. Mine is an ls so no turbo :/. My gas mileage was bad when delivering pizzas. I had many vets to compete with so I drove it like a race car.
