Pros great looks,amazing price tag,comfort.all new style

Cons none!

hey guyz! i just got my hands on new chevy cruze and i was amazed after the ride! the cars heart is flawless and it wont bother to throw itself on ur demand. Powered by 2.0 ltrs diesel engine that produces 150 bhp is great. with all new masculine it demands second look from everyone on the road (thou it looks like civic from back but its front is just amazing and the shoulder line is mind blowing) The car feels great in interiors and is full of luxury. and to talk abt features u can just go on and go on. but few features that makes it different from other cars in this category is PUSH BUTTON START AUTO MATIC RAIN SENSORS ELECTRONIC GATE LOCKS ONE TOUCH ENGINE STOP HUGE DISPLAY SCREEN GREAT WHHEL BASE and all this come for a price tag of Rs 13.45 lacs on-road new delhi. it is the chevy diwali gift for all the people who are looking to buy a car in this range and also it has gifted sleepless nights to toyota and honda! sanchit!

Pros looks good

Cons service is pathetic

I purchased a Chevrolet Cruze on 22 feb 2010 from DPM sales Deharadun, day I bought it I wanted LTZ model but dealer was very perticular in giving LT model as according to him LTZ was not available but 4 LTZ was standing in front of us. Reason we didn't want to puchase LT was, there was a bump(manufacturing defect) at the back of the car, but finally we bought that only because we didn't want to go empty handed. Well after all these things we were happy that we bought a nice car as so much of trust is there towards GM, that you seems to be one of the best manufacturers in the world. But within few days that car started showing its true colors, some noise started coming from it, It started fusing smoke from the back., etc... on 18082010 first servicing of that car was done at (Virdajoyti, Meerut), after that I thought now it will run good, but within 2 days car stopped on the road and was not starting up,I was going for a very important meeting that I couldn't attend then immediately I called to Deharadun office they took my car to the service center and on 21082010 they replied back saying servicing was not done properly and some sensor was not working. I told them how it can be possible one day back it is coming from service they replied we dont know. Then I called to your Delhi Customer care department, there I got a very fantastic answer saying that - "we dont know what happend and we can not do anything regarding that, it is a mechanical ploblem it can happen to any car it doesn't matter if it is coming from servicing, you do what ever you want I can not help it" I am in a shock after listening to all this and in back of my mind I am planning to gift this car to Chevrolet team for making me fool.... You all know from what you are going through and after all this If you behave like this I don't think so you people will exist in indian market for a long period. I hope you have some brains regarding customer relationship and if not then pack your bags and make fool of some other country citizens.

Cruze - The Muscle Car Cometh!
Posted on 31 Jan 10 at 10:53 pm

Pros Great Looks, Strongest in (and above) class

Cons Pricing Conflict

The Cruze qualifies as an elite among beasts. Its got everything from good curves and bulked presence to roomy front interiors. Classical Chevy representation makes the car your sanctum sanctorum - you step in, power up the windows and you throw away the world. Floor the gas pedal and your scenery changes faster than your dreams could do it. The engine rarely utters beyond a purr when you hear it from within (behind rolled up windows).....lower a window and the 'bad boy' roar is all too apparent. Cruising a bend, it makes no lurch or squeals-adjusting to demands almost seamlessly. The mileage is a non-issue, clocking in at 11.5 kmpl making it a delight for the pocket. The power output is distinctly zippy, pouring power faster than most cars in its class. Could give ALL bigger boys a run for their money.....its not exactly the Laura (Skoda) but you'd hardly notice coz its the newest dream machine and has that "Broad shouldered" look that'd outshoulder ANYTHING that passes for a car on the roads as yet. BTW, some of the so-called UV wannabes (SUV and MUV) are pathetic underperformers too! Go buy it! Behave yourself when driving....being powerful doesn't mean being misbehaved! Honestly! ;-)
