Just titled my wife's 2014 LT, 6 speed manual. Was holding out for a diesel, but the VW thing made my wife too leary, although we've had VW diesels in the past and loved the fuel mileage.

It's a GM buy-back program car with 9K miles, so we'll see how Oregon title's it. It came with a PA lemon law branded title.

I bought from Brenengen Chevrolet in W. Salem, WI for $12,299, seeing it on CarGuru. The salesman said they bought it at auction in Atlanta and it had the clutch replaced.

I used MoveOnWheels to broker the shipment through NAO Transport for $950: WI to Oregon, I thought was a decent price when it's not a common run for haulers.

It's got 1/4 tank left, and I'll fill with what goes for premium out here- 92 octane with 10% ethanol. Non-ethanol is available for an extra $2/gallon. Hard to say that extra step is worth it. What's the fuel upgrade to mileage improvement ratio? Like, is paying an extra 15%/gallon return 15-20% better mileage?

So, thanks for having me. I'll post some pics and update with mpg, etc.
Nice to own a Chevy, and the newest car I ever bought.

Meaning someone else had problems with it?

Hopefully the dealer solved the problem.

Quick impression is it's a lot better than I expected. Better bill of materials for interior finish, and an engaging slew of infotainment.
It's SWMBO's daily driver, so we'll see how she takes to it. She read about the 5 star NHTSA rating and asked me to scour the internet for the perfect ride.
Let's see if I delivered.

Did you run a CarFax or AutoChek and see why it was lemon lawed. Typically, there are /is a specific issue like a trans or engine that the owner believes can not be resolved and the dealer/manufacturer is unable to resolve. It must not have been " safety" related or they would not permit the resale.

For or you current owners, can you think of any specific recurring issues that would lemon law a 2014 Cruze??

As far as the title goes, Oregon will be required to title it with the same title issue as PA. ( Aka Lemon buy back; salvage title; rebuilt etc.). The days of washing the title in a different state are over where they used to take all the old flood cars that were coming in from down south and elsewhere and then being retitled in those states where they could wash it.
