Well that's my point. If you are expecting the wheel to fight you because you are an experienced driver pushing the limits then it's great. But if you're Joe Businessman renting a Cruze on a work trip and you go to accelerate hard into traffic and hit some sand and the opposite wheel grabs suddenly and yanks the wheel out of your hand...no bueno.yes the cruze may not need it but i would have paid for it. even on dry climates a LSD drives much nicer in and more controllable.
yah i disagree 100% a lsd car is easier to control then open diff. unless you are pushing the car in acceleration on bad traction or turning hard the driver wont notice its there and it will help them keep in control silently and without them knowing
But again, this car isn't marketed for the driving experience. It would be silly to add that cost to a car that the average consumer not only doesn't need, but probably would say the car "drives funny" because they don't expect the car to act that way when a tire slips.i rather rely on a mechanical LSD then fancy computer controlled traction control. traction control may be acting as a lsd but again its ACTING as a lsd and is not one. a true lsd would make the car so much better in the cruze if it didn't have the stupid torque limiting/ manager, heck it would be outright fun with no tq management and a true mechanical lsd
You've got a point...if they marketed an SS version of the Cruze, one could possibly expect an LSD. Notice all of those "SS" versions lived relatively short lives with modest, at best, sales numbers (except the Cobalt, which I think I saw more SS Cobalts than regular ones when I lived in Northern VA).again it would be an option, cobalt was a economy car and we did a SS version, trailblazer was just a plain jane suv it has a SS version, malibu was a plain jane economy car and it has a SS
