As stated in the title, today, I have had my Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel for one year. I have put 9,000 miles on the car. Today, I also got to spend some time at the dealer, as my check engine light came on 2 days ago. P0133, so my father replaced the O2 sensor and performed the ECU reprogram along with the fuel trim reset. The sensor was completely and utterly soot covered (I didn't think to snap a pic). Hopefully this is a one off thing but I am on the forums here actively, so I am not holding my breath. My car isn't the only one my dad had to perform this on, he said the other has not come back yet. He insists I have to start beating it, something I never do. While the car was plugged in we also reprogrammed the HVAC module to solve the buzzing after the car is shut off when the A/C has been on, and activated afterblow. Moving on, I love the car so far, and this has been my only issue. The car has had one oil change and one DEF top off (with the oil change), and I haven't put more than 20 tanks of fuel in it. I use PowerService DieselKleen in it every tank as well. My mileage is in the low 30s on a regular basis, upper 40s on highway runs (42.2 today in a short rural highway run). My car doesn't get driven in the highway much, but I do try to go out of my way to get some highway time on it from time to time. I can't really think of anything I strongly dislike about it, and I do love driving it, but I am glad I have my dad and brother to work on it, along with their GM information access to learn about it, because it is a rare and tricky beast.
Additions to the car:
GM Accessory splash guards
GM Accessory door trim sill plates
GM Accessory all weather floor mats and trunk mat
GM Accessory license plate frames
Plan on adding GM fog lights when I replace my non-matching headlights.

Thanks for the 1 year update! Keep us posted on what happens after your service visit. I always appreciate the "inside info" you provide as well!

As they say, when it rains, it pours. Started the car today, "Service Side Zone Detection System" message on my DIC and the system is not functioning at all past bulb check.

Sounds like you have the blind spot detection system. Those radar unit sit in the rear bumper fascia and get exposed to the elements. They're right where the rear tires will throw crud. Apparently not all that water proof.

Yea I am almost assuming one of those two modules went bad. The diagnostic tree pretty much states if you have a DTC (any one of the 10 just for the modules), replace the module. Hopefully I got one, if not we are looking through the wiring. My car looks pretty clean and dry up there, but my brother has changed multiples of them in different GM cars.

Update: finally wrangled up a MDI to pull some info from the car, had a B101D code in history on one of the detection sensor modules. That code indicates a module defect. The system started working again, so I'm going to replace my negative battery cable, and put some magic (dielectric) grease on the connectors to the sensors. If the code reappears, module gets replaced, but since it only happened once I'm holding off so far. While I had the MDI I updated my steering module to the latest calibration to prevent stick-slip (even though I haven't experienced it that I know of) and updated my MyLINK to the latest version.

Thanks for the update. My power steering stick on center mysteriously went away on its own a couple years ago, if that's what you're talking about.
