Hi everyone, I am a new member. I am currently on my second cruze and heavily weighing the decision to buy a new diesel. I previously had a 2012 Cruze I bought new, had no problems. I bought a new 2015 Cruze 2.5 years ago, been a pretty good car. At around 10k miles my power steering went out, dealer replaced under warranty. At around 70k miles I had that cam seal go bad? Its very common from what I read, dealer fixed it under warranty. I currently have 93k miles and last week it shifted hard. I have a 130 mile round trip to work typically 6 days a week, I actually work for General Motors. In the last week almost everyday on the way to or from work it will shift hard once maybe twice. Its not at a particular speed or gear. My cruze is a automatic with the 1.4 by the way. Other than that it runs flawless. No service engine lights or anything. Im not too worried about the transmission because mine has the 100k mile powertrain warranty with 7k miles left. It goes in for a oil change in a few days and the dealership can look at it then. What I think I want to do though is trade it in before the powertrain warranty is up. Weighing my option of buying a new diesel or gas Cruze. Mine currently gets high 30s or low 40s on the highway. My drive to work is entirely highway, doing between 65 and 75mph for about 60 miles each way. I can get a new Cruze LT gas model for around 15k or a new Cruze LT diesel for around 20k. I can actually get a new 2017 cheaper without my employee discount, because they are offering 25% off all new 2017 Cruzes, which is better than my employee discount. I only want a automatic. Just curious what real world mpg people are getting with the diesel doing 75mph on the highway? Is it worth it to go to a diesel? Are people paying even less than the 25% off sticker price? I drive roughly 40k miles a year almost entirely highway I live in the Midwest, where it gets cold and snows. Thanks ahead of time.
