Must be something wrong with my Holden Cruze, no wind noise, no smell, auto works fine, happy with fuel usage with my diesel, good brakes no noise, really quiet at highway speed. Only done 6,000k so far but looking good!
From all the stories i read here i hope wont have to experience any problematic Cruze I have 6,000 miles no troubles.
Dropped off my Cruze yesterday, got my check and bought a Dodge Dart Limited. What a great car. Not quite as peppy as the Cruze 1.4 turbo intially off the line, but everything else exceeds it.
As we've found out, though, the warranty is only as good as the dealer who has to honor it. A good dealer is worth supporting. It's finding those good dealers that's looking for a needle in a haystack.
From the pictures Aussie posted previously, the engine coolant tank is in the same place. What is different however is that the cabin and all the associated equipment, including air intakes, is swapped for right hand drive. This means right hand drive cruzen pull air into the cabin from the opposite side of the car from the coolant tank.

What you say is all true. HOWEVER, a warranty and a dealer can only go so far when the problem LIES with GM and GM will NOT admit that there is a problem! Having a long warranty is great IF GM would honor it! My 2011 Cruze shifts like crap like MANY other 2011 owners, but a GM engineer says "operating as designed"! So, now what?
To throw GM a small bone, they did change the 2012-current Cruze AT's so they're better-shifting. It does stink that they used the 2011's as a guinea pig, and now won't fix them when it appears that it is a fixable issue. The aftermarket tuners have shown that a 2011 transmission can be "fixed".
