Well after lots of research and chatting with a few members here, I've decided to pull the trigger on a 2018 Gen 2 Diesel Manual with leather . I did have my eye on a 2015 jetta SEL Manual (very hard to find a VW TDI in a Manual !!) and seeing how Stealerships still want a pretty penny for any VW TDI and on top of that , the performance on the Auto DSG TDI just sucks ! after the fix and the only way to fix it is to do a re-tune by a tuner . So after doing the math , what an extended warranty and 19k + for a Jetta TDI , I feel its just better to get a new Cruze TDI over the VW . On top of that , the Manual Diesel Cruze gets way better MPG'S even on a bad day . I want to thank a few members here for answering my questions and giving me great feed back on this car vs the VW TDI . This Cruze is a really good build even though it does not have all the refinement that the VW TDI has (Really!!! hot heated seats !!!) and a lighting package UGG! yet over all I can live with out a few things to gain the exceptional mpg's .
