Now the proud owner of a 2014 Cruze TD with just over 100,000 miles.

I already bumped up the all time best mpg to 46.8mpg over 50 miles on Monday before going in and buying it.

Tires need some more air in them...

My trip is 60/40 split up hill/down hill depending on whether I'm going to work or coming home.

I do about 10 miles rural and 5 miles urban the rest is 40 miles highway.

Congrats on your purchase. If the timing belt hasn't been replaced probably need to think about that pretty soon. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do mine, have a 15 CTD with about 20 k miles.

@ Overkill: I paid just under $8770 for it. (Before taxes, and plate, title xfer, hidden fees, yadda yadda yadda) $9600 out the door.
Note that this includes a full tank of fuel, new or almost new tires, and another car wash after test driving it for the weekend before which they gave it a full detail.
Car still needs new wiper blades.

Since I live in the snow belt I'm going to get a front end alignment and winter tires put on the front in the next month.
Def tank is about 1/3 full.

Welcome...
With the diesel, I feel like I belong to a special secret club. Not many cars out there can get this kind of mileage.

I find it funny that when you own something you suddenly notice how many more there are on the road.

There are 2 or 3 in town and bunch of em in Grand Rapids.

I just realized Friday that the Cruze that zips by me otw home every day is a TD as well... :D

Gotta find that little green badge... :D

I can count the other diesels I have seen on one hand, and my dad can count the number that they have had in their shop on 2 hands. Mine was the only one they sold, they dealer traded for it, it sat there forever and they lost everything but their shirts on it.

I once followed another green-badged Cruze on the freeway (and off the freeway) just to see if it was Eco or a diesel. Sure glad it was a diesel, after all that. That's what happens when you're retired and have too much time on your hands. Heh.


Dan, do you work at a dealer? Or is it your dad? I have a question for you that I'll send via PM.
