hey guys thanks for hosting this site.

as the title suggests i have had a curze before and loved it. it was a 2011 eco cruze and just bare bones at that it served its purpose and i had to trade it in for a truck that i still have and want to trade that for a much more economical car. That being said i have 2 cruzes and a Jetta TDI. The cruzes are an ECO and a Diesel. obviously this is going to be a commuter car as i also have to drive long distances. IVe been lurking in the fuel economy thread and reading that the ECOs have been keeping up to the diesels. The ECO i had was great on gas and reliability, only had to get regular maintenance done. Now more about the cars

2011 ECO: 12000$(CDN) 52k KM. 2 tone interior and the options dont show much from the dealership

2014 Diesel: 15000$(CDN) 123K KM, fully loaded, and love the remote starter on it.

if anyone wants to know

2011 Jetta TDI: 11000$(CDN) 167K KM, its a comfortline, so their base?

My problem being im having a hard time convincing myself to get the same car twice even though i had a great experience with my ECO and that extra 3k for the diesel isnt making it easier. Im looking for something more plush and sort of pamper myself after working 12hour days and would like something comfortable for the long drives after my work rotations are done.

Thoughts?

I visited the dealerships website it says the diesel is a 1SL, but that should be LS? They also dont show a vin so i can go to a dealership and see how it was optioned out but its also got leather and seems to have the bells and whistles.

Is there an options list as to what 1LS, 2LS, 1LT (etc)?

Thanks for the rest of the insight. Now with you guys telling me that the ECO and Diesel are making the same numbers its going to be tougher. Then again it will come down to options and price.

Im stuck in a semi camp style job for another week so i have some time to read up on a bunch of things i.e. hypermilling and even if guys here have tuned their diesels for the same thing as some of you have done for the ECO.

Can you plug a USB stick filled with music into the slot in the console and control the songs from the MyLink system?

Thanks again!

I emailed the dealer today and asked about the diesel cruze, he said there was a claim put up against it for 980$CDN on the left rear corner of the car and the sales dude said its all fixed. im guessing it sounds like a minor fender bender. also how do i check to see if all the recalls have been done to it. IIRC just call a GM dealership with the vin and ask to see if the recalls have been done?
