Good move but only formalizes the discounts they were anyways offering. For someone not particular about resale or gadgetry, the Cruze is still a pretty solid performer.

Check with any authorised service centre. If they've the stock you can get it done within couple of hours. I don't know where you stay but Kropex is right behind Leela Palace on old airport road.

Finally I managed to check the issue with the new service center and the culprit was the switch unlike the motor with the module which the local garage people had told me.On top of that they had charged me 500/- just to check that. If it helps any Cruze owners here, the front power window switch costs 3800+ Tax.Have just placed the order(will take 10 days) so Im yet to fix it.

(By the way i relocated from Bangalore for a little while,hence the issue to find a proper authorized service center )

Can fellow Cruze owners help me with this.I saw a HUD direct plug and play in Amazon. Here is the Link http://www.amazon.in/Vheelocityin-He...hevrolet+cruze

Now my question is whether this will show mileage information too on the HUD as it is claiming on my Cruze which is a 2011 LT version that does not have MID for Mileage information.But since this product is directly taking the information from the OBD will the mileage information also be displayed alongside other information's ,if not is there any way,like for VAG cars we can go and activate some of the features with the vcds cable.Please bear me if this is a stupid question .

Yes, mileage will certainly be displayed. I use the Android app Torque Pro in my Note 4 and there are more than 50 parameters which can be selected and displayed.

Nopes, VCDS cable is only for VAG cars. I am unaware of any easily available similar cable for Chevrolets in general.

A generic adapter bought off Aliexpress for 22$ if I remember correctly. Any adapter compatible with ELM327 will work seamlessly.

I usually pair them with my Note 4 or Note 10.1. If you also use your Android as a video recorder the you can try DailyRoads Voyager that even overlays the video with a moving map as well as engine stats sourced from the OBD adapter to provide a integrated picture! This last option does suck up battery though.

Hello everyone!! Got a call from dealership that the car has to be send for some injectors with fuel line recall worth around 25 thousand for some fire safety. Job offcourse will be foc. Does anyone have any information about this?
On a diff note got my cars cabin filter changed for the first time in 27000 Kms. They were not prepared to do it every time I asked for it in earlier services saying it was ok so was cleaned and put back. Was horrified to see only a simple mesh filter like in split Ac systems in our house costing 300 Rs. Shouldn't it be having a more robust filter like in air purifiers??

Yup, was a news-splash a couple of days back:
http://economictimes.indiatimes.com/...w/53961838.cms

Check on the Chevrolet India Recall site with your complete VIN: http://www.chevrolet.co.in/complete-care/recall.html

Mine is a June 2011 LT and seems to be part of the recall. See screenshot below:
