Yesterday I received a phone call from the dealer I purchased my CTD from. They asked if I could come in and accept a aggressive above market offer to buy my car back. Seems they had a buyer for the car. I said it wasn't for sale and it has near 100000 miles on it. They said the buyer was aware of that. I still declined.
So is the diesel market dried up of cars with VWs woes. Your diesel may of just went up in value.
Any way if there is anyone in the Cincinnati area wanting to get rid of there CTD call Joseph Chevrolet at 513 245 0103 or 513 322 5526

That dealer sold me that car 2.5 years ago and I guess they have a buyer looking for a used diesel cruze. And yes it has 97000 documented device miles.

@Gator , Could be the market for the CTD is hot because of VWs woes OR they were just trying to get you into another car? Did he ask about buying a new car from him as well??

lil short story here: last night went to Target for son for Pokemon cards. Kid had a hankering I guess. I waited in CTD while wifey and he went in. Cold night so I sat there idling a bit. Some guy comes knocking on my window as I played with iPhone. I said may I help you. He says, hey is this a diesel ? ( guess the clackety clack and Holden badges weren't enough of a clue??) Anyway, I proudly said yes. He said he's got a TDI , is scared of what's going in with VWOA and heard about the Cruze CTD. I said it's got DPF and SCR and that didn't seem to scare him. He immediately asked what I expected: what kind of mileage you getting? I showed him DIC since car was already running and it is showing avg at 44 and I am getting 50-55 mpg on highway commute at 60-65 MPH. He said that's better than his 40 avg and 46 on highway. He said thanks and was going to try to unload his TDI with a Chevy dealer. I said wait for suits to figure it out and he said he just wanted " out." As he left, he said, your Cruze is much nicer than I expected. I said what were you expecting and he said VW guys trash the Cruze. I just said " typical."

I'm very happy with the car. I belong to the 800 miles a tank club. That's the hypermilling badge. My highest avg is 64.5 miles per gallon on the 50 mile page. I typically if you look at my fuelly page get 700 miles per fillup

This is the actual reason they contacted you. They wanted you in to buy another car, and say that they have a buyer for your vehicle. It's the way they get repeat business, sales people have to do cold calls in their slow time.

Just a way to get you into their stealership. I'm always getting letters of this same thing. Bet the offered you diddly squat for your CTD.

Yes that's possible and I'm aware of the tactics that are used. I've owned several new cars in my lifetime but I truly think they could of had a buyer and might of thought well I would need another car 2 sales. But we have a car that's not on the market to be bought till 2017 comes out. I went through this with a special edition HHR I had. They are in high demand.

I did ask the sales lady that called me why would you give a aggressive above market price for a car that has 100000 miles and is only a couple years old. I know the game.
Her response was that is done when they have a guaranteed buyer.
Yep could be the new sales pitch. Guess I'll never know but I've supplied the phone numbers call them and call there bluff.

I mean, i get the monthly letters saying "trade in your Cruze for the best value!", but never has the letter said, "we have a buyer lined up and is interested in your car". How can they even tell a customer about that? "Yeah we service some CTDs, let me see if one of them wants to sell it"?

We can debate the dealer tactics, my take away is that is a positive thing for the Cruze Diesel. I can only hope Chevrolet will bring out the 17 Diesel, we are all car people that love the car. Oil is continuing to fall in price, speculation is it could reach around the $20 a barrel mark early 2016. Just wonder if oil gets to that price if Diesel sales will be there or not.

I bet GM is now wishing they hadn't cancelled the CDT for 2016. Even in the "Limited" trim it would be selling now.

Obermd I say your right on that or I just wished they did better advertising. The car we have will always be unique to the market.
First Chevy diesel car since the 70s and soon to be last with the bigger engine.

Are they new or used? Some people never can afford new but would settle for a used witch I would say is hard to find.
