Gary hasn't been back to the forum since 2014 so i doubt you will hear from him. My comment is that if the car is properly fixed, it should be OK. These cars, once properly sorted, are great cars. I have 162K miles on mine as a testament to that. If you can verify the car no longer has issues and can get it for about 30 percent below market value because of the branded title (Think: $9000) then it might be an OK deal.I found this site via Google and thought it a good idea to join since I am searching for a Cruze diesel. Want another diesel cause I have a 09 Duramax. I found a Cruze diesel about an hour from me for a good price, but its a GM buy back. It had a DEF system problem and O2 sensor problem, they replaced the DEF tank and O2 sensor and now its listed for sale with the branded title. Your situation Gary sounded similar to what this car had been through. I thought I would write and see how your car is today, if it was resolved or if you still have problems. This one is a 14 with 5.5k miles, listed for 15g's. I don't plan on selling it. Very hesitant about buying a buy back car, but if you had good luck with yours, this may not be a bad deal. I understand its got the 8 year 80k mile emissions warranty too. Thanks in advance.
Anyway, welcome to the forum!
Moving this thread to the diesel section.
