  10. Gen2 Diesel General Discussion
    I got a $50 test drive coupon from Chevy, so I decided to take an extended test drive in a diesel. Car is MBM with leather package, 35 miles on the odometer. I'll skip over the "common to all Cruze's" and focus on what's unique to the diesel. 1) Quiet diesel is correct, especially after the...

  12. General Discussion
    vs Civic, Mazda3, and VW Golf. While the Cruze is not as sporty as these, I was a little surprised. I love Honda's manual transmissions, but they ride too rough and are too loud for me, as is the Mazda3. I have never driven a VW, so not sure about those. Just got the new issue yesterday...

    Decided to post here to see if anyone else has ran into this and what they did. I'll try to be brief. It's a long story...
