like other people using this forum, trying to find out if the 2.0 turbo diesel engine on the new 2013 Cruze Eco-D will be eqipped with a chain or belt is like wringing a national secret out of the NSA. From what I understand all diesel engines are interference engines and building them with timing belts saves the manufacturer about 1,000 dollars per engine. This is what has stopped me from buying a VW diesel product. All have timing belts. VW specifies the belt to be raplaced aT 105,000 MILES but will not help you if the belt breaks at 80k miles and you have to replace the engine. If the new Chevy Cruze diesel does not come with a timing chain I will not be buying it either. Manufacturers do not like being up front with such information because they are trying to hide negative information from the uninformed consumer.
