My 2011 Olympic white Cruze LT

Recommended Posts

I got my Cruze LT last week. Already completed 1000km and just got her back after first service

Took cruze after 3-4 months of research

other Cars considered

1. Altis Diesel

2. Laura

3. Civic

I will do a detailed write up on why I choose Cruze from the above list

Pros

1. Power

2. Roard presence

3. Black Interior

4. Low cost when compared to other cars in the same segment

5. Low maintenance cost

cons

1. Turbo lag. But I am getting used to it with proper gear shift

2. Hard clutch. Knee pain after long journeys

3. Resale value

Will add more details later

Congrats nfs for your New Cruze.

Waiting for its pics now..

Any costs involved during its 1st free Service? ? for replacement of any Consumables like engine Oil' date=' etc.

Oil change is on 15k Service.

They didn't charge me anything for first service . It was just a checkup+ water service

Congrats nfs123 on your newly acquired beauty. The Cruze is the game-changer for GM in India and a very good car. Even, I had also considered this car during my buying process and it does have the Stunning looks and features.

It is a very good car for the money and wish you happy motoring always.

P.S- Do post some pics of the car. It is just stunning to say the least :)

@nfs 123: Congrats on the Cruze LT. Yes, I agree the clutch is real hard and can get tiresome if you get stuck in Bangalore City traffic.But with time I think it will loosen up; or may be you could get used to it. Gives a real work out to the left leg. The auto variant may have solved the problem.

@?koda Superb

Thanks.  I will post some pics this weekend.

@Durango Dude

I didn't consider auto variant for 2 reasons.

1.  I am a person who enjoy driving.. I want to get involved while driving and want complete control of the vehicle.

2.  Mileage was also a major concern as I have monthly running of 2.5k KM

Actually , I didn't get a Good  stretch to go above 150. @ 150 the car is under full control. I can easily take  turns @ 100 .

Biggest thing I worried before taking the car was ground clearance.

It easily went through all bad bumbers and roads I know.

Clutch is really hard.

NFS@

Do not worry about the ground clearance unless you drive it for the 4x4 bumpy ride. We indians had OHC, Lancer, Escort in our history which is proud to drive still and ever. Drive carefully at the pits and stay safe. AC compresser will be at the bottom in most of the cars. If you are a victim of those, please be concentrated more while driving. :)Aerospeedcars2011-04-16 15:23:22

@aero- the cruze has some kind of protective sheeting under the engine which also covers the ac compressor!so that wont be a problem i guess!! @nfs congrats on the buy dude!wish you many more happy miles cruzingsmiley2.gifby the way what is the highest mileage you have ever got?i have crossed 21kmpl on many ocassions!vignesh2011-06-15 08:04:16
