Nice! But just so that you're aware, the Cruze diesel isn't recommended for towing.
I fully believe that car is capable of doing it. But GM does NOT recommend the USA Diesel to tow.There's been a couple guys on here who have towed 3000lbs with their Cruze no problem. I think the holdens says 3000lbs in their manual.
I was sort of mistaken. The Holden's towing ratings are in kg so, it means their Cruze's are rated for 1600 lbs without trailer brakes and 2600 lbs with trailer brakes. Still investigating why/how the North American models are different.Hopefully one of the guys from overseas joins in with their diesel. I specifically recall being amazed at how high the tow rating was for the ctd.
Ultra-gauge or Scan Gauge II could help you with monitoring the car's vitals. Though I'm not sure if there are sensors in the car for things like oil pressure.if i have a way of monitoring the vehicle vitals like tranny temps, engine oil pressures then i would have no isse towing with my CTD but until i have a means then im not doing so.
