Holden Cruze 2002 FAQs

Check out real-world situations relating to the Holden Cruze here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Why is my 2013 Holden Cruze revving and losing power?

    If the engine is revving but the car is not moving, you probably have a transmission or gearbox fault. If the problem was a broken driveshaft or CV joint, the car would just roll to a stop and not move again. But since it gradually lost drive before finally refusing to move, it’s more likely to be the gearbox that is the cause of this.

    Sometimes, this sort of problem can be as simple as a leak from the transmission which has led to a low fluid level. And since it’s the fluid in an automatic transmission that actually provides the drive (by transferring the torque) this can bring on the symptoms you’re seeing.

    At the other end of the catastrophe scale, you could be looking at a gearbox that has failed internally and comprehensively. And I’m afraid to say that this model Cruze did have a reputation for just that occurring. Sometimes the problem could be traced back to a torque-converter, valve body or sensor error, but other times complete transmission failure was the diagnosis.

    Holden actually acknowledged this problem by extending the transmission warranty to 150,000km or five years after the date the car first went into service. Unfortunately, that ended in 2018 for your car. It would still be worth contacting Holden’s customer service department, however, but don’t be surprised if financial help is not forthcoming.

  • I own a 2010 Holden Cruze. I have an issue with the transmission. The gear is not shifting properly causing high rpm...

    This model Holden Cruze is well known for transmission failures. Symptoms include the inability to select gears, a complete loss of drive or, as you have noticed, flaring in the gears. Unfortunately, this often mean the entire transmission is unserviceable.

    Holden did extend the transmission warranty on these cars to five years or 150,000km, but even at that rate, your car would still be well and truly out of warranty. The first step, however, is to have the car scanned to see if the computer throws up any transmission-fault codes which could tell more of the story.

    In some cases, these cars also experienced failed transmission coolers which allowed the transmission fluid and engine coolant to mix. If that’s the case, you might be able to get away with replacing the radiator, but historically, many of these cases also caused the transmission to fail.

  • Can I fit a 17 x 7-inch CDX 2010 Holden Cruze rim to a 2010 Holden Cruze CD with 16 x 6.5-inch rims?

    The 17 X 7-inch rim was one of the upgrades Holden gave the Cruze in CDX trim to distinguish it from cheaper models. But since no changes were made to the suspension or bodywork as part of that upgrade, the CDX rim and tyre should fit on the CD model with no problems.

    The only catch might be that you’re then slightly limited in what tyres you can use. Because the 17-inch rim has a one-inch (and wheel and tyre measurements are still universally in inches, rather than metric) larger diameter, you can’t always fit that rim with a high-profile tyre as that might cause clearance problems.

    The best advice would be to stick with the standard tyre specification for the 17-inch wheels. You may find, though, that the lower-profile tyre on the 17-inch Cruze rim might cost you a little in ride comfort terms as the low-profile tyre won’t have the same, softer sidewall and may transmit more movement into the cabin.
