    2013 Cruze pickup day?!

    Hey

    I'm gonna pickup my brand new 2013 Chevy Cruze LTZ RS, fully loaded with all options available. RS package,Sunroof, Navigation with myLink, enhanced security package and the upgraded premium sound system package.

    This is my first brand new car, so any recommendation to inspect or to do before I accept the car from the dealer?

    Thanks

    I would look real close at the paint for little nicks or imperfections in the paint and check the doors to make sure there properly aligned. Other then that enjoy your new Cruze. What color did you get?

    I also check all fluid levels and tire pressures. If the service tech is really backlogged, something may slip through. Make sure you get both keys and the owner's manual. It's easier to get this stuff up front than later. Check your wheels for damage as well.

    Basically, you want to treat your initial inspection as if you were going to rent the car and you don't want to have any "damage" charges applied when you return it.

    thaicruze has been having brake clicks and other noises that don't appear to be an issue on the North American Cruze. I can understand his point given the repeated failures by his local dealerships and after market brake shops inability to find and fix the noises.

    Just make sure the AC/heater doesn't stink.

    You should be fine, just relax.
