  2. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    So my brother sent me this article on a new version of the Ford Focus. The Ford Focus ST is going to come in a diesel model. Unfortunately it is only sold in Europe and there arent any plans for bringing it to the US. I was excited when I read the article. Thinking that there would be...

    Hi all. First off I am a very happy owner of a 2013 Cruze LS. I love my car, no complaints at all. Well the wife needed a new car and was going to just get her a Cruze but instead I decided to add some variety to our lives so we went with a Focus. The Focus is a nice car. Drives well and has...

    Greetings Cruze owners! My wife and I are picking up a 2012 Cruze Eco 6-spd manual tomorrow and I thought I would share my impressions/experiences from deciding between the Cruze and a new Focus. I'm not a lifelong Chevy fan or anything, I've owned three Dodges (Avenger, Dakota, Ram), a Ford...

    I test drove a Ford Focus yesterday and a Chevy Sonic and Cruze today. My impression of the three is that the Cruze is better than the Focus, to me anyhow. The Sonic is fine as a subcompact but the ride is a little too skittish for me and there was a lot of wind noise. The odd gauge pod doesn't...

    I just picked up a 12 Cruze LT with a 6-speed stick, and a friend just bought a 12 Focus Sedan (also manual). Both cars had less than 1,000 miles and a full tank of fuel. Focus had a Thule roof rack (weighs nothing but creates some aero drag) We're both gear heads/racers and both have other...

    Hello. Trying to decide between a Cruze and a Focus. I've taken each on a fairly long test drive and both have their pluses and minuses. One thing in that particular that bothered me about the Cruze is the lack of steering feel at highway speeds. Not the the steering was sloppy, just that there...

    I am shopping for a new car to buy in the next few weeks. And I have narrowed the choices down to the cruze eco and a 2012 focus SEL with SFE package. I test drove the cruze last weekend and I have to say I enjoyed it. The manual shifted nicely with decent passing ability on the interstate...

    I am stuck between a 2011 Cruze and a 2012 Focus. I am curious which engine could take more abuse. Which is the better of the two? Thank You

    Hi folks. My wife and I test drove each of the cars in the subject today, except for the Elantra (dealership didn't have one w/ a manual transmission). I realize comparing the Prius against the others is kind of an apples to oranges situation, so let's not bother (unless you really want to...

  14. Chevrolet Cruze News and Reviews
    When Chevy first brought the Cruze to America, there were bold promises of 40-mpg. Then GM proudly boasted that the special Cruze Eco would get an astonishing 42-mpg. Unfortunately that Eco model costs plenty more than the standard vehicle and only the 6-speed manual model (of which...

    This is the first time im seeing the 2012 Ford Focus, EVER. I didn't expect to see such an impressive vehicle since the previous Ford Focus generations never did impress me and didn't have anything to make me say "i want a ford focus". Ford stepped up their game with the Focus and it seems to be...

    So far I've test driven the Prius, Elantra, Jetta, Fusion Hybrid, Sonata. So far I'm liking the Cruze the best. The prius was too underpowered and noisy going up hills. The steering feel sucked too. The Elantra is a GREAT value and I like all the features (especially the push button start)...

    I just took a look at the 2010 Focus on Ford's website... The profile view is not bad but that is one fugly front end. The only nice thing I see is that it has is the push button start (can keep the keys in the pocket). Wish the Cruze had that but it is in no way a deal killer. The selectable...
