Well our little oil burner has been released for four years now and I'm still having to go to the dealership to get the oil filters. The plus side they do sell them to me wholesale.Has anyone stumbled on any in the auto box store.
The oil is getting a little easier to find.

These are internet sites, I'm talking about walking into a auto parts store like Napa, AutoZone etc etc. As of now I get them from my dealership for 9.00 a filter but we still have to order them even there

I still have one more free change so won't need a filter for awhile, I bought filters from a previous owner and will use those but it seems to me buying a few online from rock auto and just have them in hand would be the easiest of me. They sold so few of gen 1 ctd I understand why local parts stores may not stock the filters.

I am still on the box I bought from overseas when I first got the car. I think I bought like 30 oil filters.

The chain and auto part stores, for rapid turn around, generally will only stock components that show a fifteen day turnaround.

There really are not enough Cruze diesels on the road to support that.
The only alternative is to maintain your own inventory.

The chances of walking into a place like auto zone and getting an oil filter off the shelf for a Cruze diesel is pretty much 0. Just order 2, and each time you use one, order one. That way you always have one sitting around.

I'm getting four at a time from the dealer at 36.00 just figured maybe you would start to see them on the market by now. By chance what filter is in the new Colorado and canyon diesel and the generation 2 diesel cruze

I'm sure if you got friendly with a parts guy somewhere they might keep one in stock just for you but at that point why not just order a handful at a time straight to your doorstep like everyone else and save time and money?

Chevrolet only sold about 500 CTD's a month. Total build out of Gen 1 is likely under 20,000 units. There's no point thinking a streetside auto parts store will stock diesel filters. Heck every few months there are probably some CTD's wrecked, the total sales pool of customers will only be dropping further.

Anyone know what filter the new diesel cruze and Colorado, and canyon take? If all three take different filters then I see it as another gm blunder. No reason why first gen Cruze second gen Cruze and the mid size diesel pickups can't take the same filter.
I have a Harley Davidson that no matter what engine you have one filter fits all.

I think they are different.

I'm sure they're probably different because they're completely different motors. I don't see how this matters at all though. It's not like you will be swapping them out from one vehicle to another.

Really, you can get them off Amazon with free 2 day shipping if you have Amazon prime. If it's this big of a deal to you just order a couple of them and stash them somewhere. You won't be walking into any auto parts store and getting one off the shelf. It just doesn't make any sense for them to stock them.

It won't be long before most purchases are made this way. Click the mouse and two days later your purchases arrive. It has worked great for my filters & oil.

I find it humorous that this subject was buying filters at a box store and it turns into a mail-order post.
People I'm glad you love the Amazon deal. I'm not against it. I'm just a person who likes going to the store and walking out with it..
As you read my Post I order 4 at a time at 9.00 a filter so I guess I'll live with that.

As a side not, it was not very long ago you could walk into Auto zone and they sold AC GM filters.
