I reject your sweeping statements. So does the EPA.
You obviously don't fully understand what VW did, they made there cars when tested appear to meet the emissions standards when in test mode. Regular driving like we do they were emitting up to 40 times the pollution in test mode so they designed a TDI to cheat and we all suffer because of it. This is very serious and against the law in United States.
as I recall the OP was fixing stuff on his car that was really a warranty item, thought he knew more than his dealer, which could be possible but not likely. I wouldn't buy a CTD with a CEL on personally.I just checked the OP's prior posts. He bought a 2014 CTD a few months ago with 22,000 miles on it and a check engine light on.
Emotion over logic - a phrase he's used more than once to describe himself. On that I tend to agree with. His posts speak for themselves.
One thing l'm curious about is did the OP exercise his due diligence and speak to the prior owner(s) to find out why they dumped a car after a year? Like was it lemon lawed or a factory buy back?
My mother used to always say that people don't get rid of good cars.
And from your posts about your fleet I'd hazard to guess that the only reason you're trading perfectly good cars is you don't have Jay Leno's hanger space.Tomko,
Mom never met me.......I have a very long history of selling/trading problem free cars.
ie: See my post in the Cruze birthday thread.
Some cars do have chronic issues just like humans. My guess and only a guess is the car wasn't properly serviced, wrong type of oil, too much oil, etc and techs that may not be properly trained. Only speculation on my part. I watch the dealer service my car so I know I get the correct oil and amount. Hope you get your issues sorted out.I like the car over all but its going to be at the dealer a lot. Cars should not have so many issues with so low of miles and age.
So you bought a car with a history of problems, and it's GM's fault.Its a 2014 Cruze Diesel. I bought it used a month ago with a check engine light on at purchase. Vehicle has had a history of repairs done the previous owner likely got rid of it because it was in the shop every few thousand miles.
can`t compare VW to the cruze. if VW had played by the rules they would also of had the DEF system in witch case they may of had possibly the same issues. if GM had cheated the same as VW then you could compare the two.
Why did you buy a GM car if your thoughts are true to you? I won't let you swipe at GM when you bought a Cruze with a CEL on and had chronic problems, you had no idea what they were or even requested the dealer fix the CEL prior to purchase. Then because you were excited at first while CTD is under warranty you start replacing sensors because of I don't know why and then you don't fix your cars issues and then you want to swipe at GM and have the view your car is worse than VW fiasco that effects close to 600k cars in US and millions of cars across the globe I respectfully don't find your views to have legit merit. I would be frustrated if I had emissions issues as well but to get on here and rant and rave about GM doesn't help your cause in my view. Please take your car to a Chevrolet dealer and get the darn thing fixed while under warranty. I am just one Cruze owner that loves his car and getting frustrated over your statements that make so little sense.These problems are not uncommon for the US Cruze Diesel. GM has a history of releasing vehicles half baked. Not trying to hurt any ones feelings... That is the truth.
Even without playing by the rules VW has had its fair share of issues with the TDI, many of them emissions related. Frequent regens, DPFs that fail or need to be replaced at 120,000 miles, cylinder wash and fuel dilution, no to mention fuel pumps that threaten to destroy your entire fuel system at the cost of nearly if not five figures...can`t compare VW to the cruze. if VW had played by the rules they would also of had the DEF system in witch case they may of had possibly the same issues. if GM had cheated the same as VW then you could compare the two.
