    Had a great drive home and averaged over 50+ MPG on both tanks. Couldn't be happier. SW Florida to Maryland and back. A9 sedan. I can't believe the greenhouse effect.I can't get the windows tinted until Thursday which will lower the temps inside and let the A/C work a little easier. Black...

    Let me introduce myself and share my story about how I came here! Due to a series of unfortunate events, my lightly modded 2013 Sonic LT Turbo met her unfortunate end early Friday morning. An untimely collision with a deer at full highway speed in BFE, Texas ender her useable life. Thankfully...

    Hey guys, I'm absolutely terrible with cars and I was wondering if I might find some help here. I have a 2011 Chevy Cruze 1.4 LT. I bought it used about 2 years ago, have had no problems/maintenance done on it. I did however just have my brakes and oil changed about a week ago by my bosses...
  4. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    So I finally got my car on the road today, first time getting to drive it other than a test drive. Made my daily commute of 110 miles. About 7 miles from home I got the exhaust fluid poor quality warning. 50,500 miles. Purchased from a private party. What can I expect from a dealer? I...

    I finally test drove a cruze today, actually enjoyed it, but a lot is lost in the heat of the moment. I didn't commit to anything. It has 55k for under $10k otd. Currently have an 06 cobalt with 212k it's still a solid car but problems here and there are exceeding it's worth to me. My mpg's...

    I test drove the new 2016.5 Cruze yesterday (Premier trim) and just wanted to share my initial impressions: Good: - Solid ride, managed bumps in road very well. - Decent acceleration (heh, compared to my 2004 Pontiac Vibe, everything has good acceleration) :) The engine did not seem to labor...

    One of the dealers here has received just a couple of 2016 Volts. I test drove one today just for the heck of it. Here are my thoughts: Pros: Driving experience. Wow, this car drives nice. It's super smooth, quiet, and solid. It's also very responsive. It's not quite as quick as I expected...

    Hi All! I just came across this forum which seems to have a ton of great information and people! I currently drive a '00 VW Jetta TDI and have been looking very hard at the Jetta and Golf TDI's, however I have also been eyeing the Chevy Cruze. Well, tonight I test drove a '15 Cruze LS 6-speed...

    Hi there, Earlier today, I did something I have never done - I decided to go to a dealership and test drive a car. Specifically, a 2015 Cruze 2.0L TD: Let me back up for a few steps. I currently own a '96 VW Passat TDI wagon, which is an awesome car in many ways (55mpg; 264,000 miles; so...

    I work for a supplier to GM. I got a chance to test drive the LGX(3.6L) and LGW(3.0 Twin Turbo) and both vehicles were bad ass. The vehicles I tested both had active T-Cases on them, so at launch torque is ported to the front wheels instead of just frying the rear tires. I was thoroughly...
  11. Gen1 Wheels, Tires, Brakes, & Suspension
    Did a total of 55 miles in my Cruze during and after the blizzard. Drove through some un-plowed roads as well, we got hit with 12in of snow in one area and the other area I was in had close to 24in of snow. With the General altimax tires on the car (26 PSI) and the front engine shield the car...

    I'm now pretty set on buying a GM car, I get to part closer to work! lol but i just took a Cruze for a test drive and well...i was not impressed, cant say i was taken by surprise i just wish it worked for me. I was set on buying a 2014 cruze LTZ - no other options, i just needed to test drive...
  13. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    Sorry if this is a frivolous thread, but I just test drove a new 2014 Cruze 2.0D, and let me just say, WOW!! I love my torquey little 1.4L turbo, but the 2.0D is just a whole other (better) animal. At 75 mph on the freeway humming along at 2,000 rpm, barely touch the pedal and it pushes up to...

  15. General Discussion
    So today I drove a diesel, I can't really say whether I was impressed or disappointed. It feels like the car is gutless and it isn't very responsive, the torque is okay I guess but you can tell when the overboost kicks in which is nice. I probably would never buy one, it truly is hard to say...

    And it made me feel better about my Cruze! except for one thing..... the auto tranny! why oh whyyyy does my tranny have to be so **** confused and jerky. (if mazda can get it right, why cant chevy *cry*) anyways, these are the main things i noticed. the mazda: it feels smaller the...

    I have these 2 cars as a fall back option if Chevy doesn't make enough changes where it counts (to me) with the 2014 MCE. I first drove a 2013 Civic Sedan. The seat is not comfortable at all and, like the Cruze, does not have lumbar controls. The Civic seat digs into my back more than the Cruze...

    It was an SE model, so it had leather heated seats, a sunroof and special wheels/tires. The MSRP was $20,600, which seemed like a pretty good deal for the equipment with the car. I don't need a 4 door car and I wanted to see how the Elantra felt on the road. It was nice - a good solid feel...

    First time she drove it since we got the new Cruze. Said the steering is awfully hard as is the manual transmission to shift. And the gas mileage is terrible, had to fill up on the way home. And the car is noisy. Just replied, nothing wrong with our Cavalier, always been that way, Cruze...

    I've got to tell you the Dart is pretty **** fast and fun to drive with the manual trans and 180hp. It felt just as solid as the Cruze and the handling was about as good too. The Cruze is quieter and feels more refined but when you get the Dart up around 4k on the tach with your foot on the...
