I don't think Chevy expected to sell that many Gen 1 Cruze Diesels in North America, so they didn't make very many.

It was a beta test. They were testing the waters and didn't want a repeat of the LF9 debacle.

But they're deadly serious this time. Expect annual sales in the 12-20,000 range.

For a company the size of GM this is what they need.

Only if they can win over TDI owners......

i cant see but a few current CTD owners jumping on the Gen 2 model.....too many issues and lack of trust from Gen 1...

For that matter, how many were with VW for "German engineering"? I'd imagine most would dismiss GM out of hand. It may not be deserved anymore, but old views die hard.

I think the people who have issues tend to be the most vocal on the forum skewing the perceived reliability. There are plenty of happy diesel Cruze owners. I posted a thread a while back asking who actually likes and is happy with their diesel, and the responses were overwhelmingly positive. There are some posters who seem to have nothing but bad things to say about the diesels, and they seem to post a lot. have you ever noticed that?
