Looking to replace the '03 Protege5 in 2018 with another compact hatchback. Not an oil burner, just posted the article for the diesel freaks here.Sup Jim ? Are you thinking about a bigger GM to help ya with all òf the bodies ya have to carry around ?..or just more luggage space ?
OK then we'll put smurfboards upon IT and go Smurfing .
Thanks - my thoughts exactly. Stopped by a Chevy dealer recently (Paul Masse in East Providence, RI) and wandered around looking at the new Cruzes. I shared your same thoughts with a salesman, who listened politely and said "Uh-huh". Oh well, if more of us voice our diesel/manual transmission/SS wishes, they might come true.I really hope GM builds the diesel version of a hatch ... and that they offer up the manual transmission straight from the European region that's been blessed with a manual diesel since day 1. They could also offer up the 1.6L Turbo from the Buick Cascada as a Cruze SS version ... 200 horsepower in a lil Cruze wouldn't be so bad, would it? Or maybe even the 2.4L turbo that could push close to 300 ponies. Now THAT would be a fun Cruze to own! (not to mention competing with the blue oval boys and their Focus) There's obviously a market for that kind of car.
