Unibody is just that, one big fat part. Starts off from a huge roll of sheet metal, cut, stamped, formed for all the pieces, put in a precision jig, robotically welded all together then dipped in a tank of undercoating. From a roll of sheet metal to a completed body in about 35 minutes.Thanks guys its nice to see a large community here.
Got rear-ended and forced into the car in front of me. Wrecked the passenger side front and rear of the car to the tune of $14,000
When I got the car back it wasn't the same. Rattles in the door the front end crashed over bumps. I decided that rather then take it back in and have another month and a half in the shop to just trade it in for something new. I drive for work so I need comfort and reliability. I would have probably gone diesel if I could have found one with the options I wanted at the price I wanted but didn't find any. I got a great deal on the LTZ with GM's 15% deal going on right now paid just over 20k. I love this car and should have gotten this instead of the Jetta 2 years ago. The Jetta's seats are more supportive but the cheap vinyl(leatherette) they are made from sucked. The dsg tranny was expensive to maintain, Dealer wanted $850 for 40k service half was just the trans so I did it myself. The interior of the Cruze is hands down superior to the Jetta's. More info on the dash better DIC info, My link is better then what VW has. However the sound of the stereo on the VW is much better then the Cruze. I had a loaded Tdi SEL so it had the 400 watt fender premium audio in it. The 9 speaker pioneer system sound good but not as good as the fender. Probably has to do with the sub woofer and built in enclosure that the VW has, The whole rear deck behind the rear seats is a sub box. The keyless entry on the VW is a little better then whats on the cruze. Gran the door handle and the door(s) unlocked, press a little dent in the handle to lock the, plus they covered the key-hole on the driver door too which just made it look smooth. About the only thing i'll really miss about it is the fuel economy. average 40 mixed and often went over 50 on long trips, but i'll be seeing what I can do to improve the Cruze's economy in the weeks ahead
I have a 2014 2LT RS and I purchased the RallySport universal mud flaps for around $30 and the front ones are really easy to put on. The rear ones you will have to work a little harder on.Where can I get splash guards that work with the RS package? The dealer installed ones won't fit.
And thanks for serving
