Welcome aboard and congratulations! I came from the Sonic world as well. Make sure to post some pictures when you remember.
I did not drive a diesel manual prior to purchase. I didn't drive a Cruze at all prior to purchase. I sat in the TD Auto that they had on the lot, that was about it. Unfortunately, I really just care about the fuel mileage. I won't ever drive the car on the weekends, I have a couple of others that I use on Saturday and Sunday.Congrats on your purchase. Did you drive a diesel manual prior to purchase?
I've seen your picture post. Silver Ice Metallic is pretty.Picked up my 17 TD, Silver Ice Metallic, 6 speed, black leather car Monday night (5/15/17).
Anyway, i have 300 miles on it so far (I do 150 a day back and forth to work). Since I haven't filled up yet, I don't know the fuel mileage, car says 45.5 so far.
2 things I don't like so far are that the first cup holder is in the way of the shifter and I'm a little concerned about pulling into fast moving traffic. 1st gear kind of stinks. The car is not peppy in first and the 1st to 2nd shift really makes it fall on it's face. I've tried different RPM's, even starting out in 2nd, no luck yet to finding the sweet, quick spot. I will say that 2 thru 6 are pretty responsive.
Thank you, I took the color they had coming in! I am not a color shopper. I filled up yesterday, and I agree. This is the first time in my life where I hand calculated a higher number than the computer. The car said 46.8, I calculated 50.15. That is awesome. I was hoping for 45 (I drive 52 miles highway, 20 miles surface roads with some stop and go). The mileage is why I bought it and 1 fill up in, I'm pretty happy!I've seen your picture post. Silver Ice Metallic is pretty.
My experience with fuel economy and the fuel computer is that the computer is pessimistic, which is unusual in my experience with other vehicles. I haven't gotten less than 52 MPG on a tank yet.
Wow that's pretty incredible. What's the price of diesel in your area?As an FYI, I've filled up twice so far (just passed 1500 miles today). First time 50.15, last time 50.7. Pretty awesome with 72% Highway, 28% City.
Diesel is $2.15 per gallon. Filled up again on Friday, 53.9!Wow that's pretty incredible. What's the price of diesel in your area?
