  1. Congrats abhi! Great choice!Green sure looks a stunner!Good to know that you would be getting the car by 1st week of feb.In some cities the waiting period is going beyond 30 days!I've also come to know that GM is ramping up their capacity at Talegaon owing to the demand. Anyway happy driving!
  2. Nope.Production not stopped.It will continue to sell for a quite some time to come.I believe the production is low owing to the demand of the Cruze.They are ramping up the production olf Cruze.
  3. Bad bad bad... Good for new buyers but not for the currents ones!! Re-sale would be badly affected!

  7. I visited the expo on the 5th.Got loads of snaps. If you are on facebook,then here is the link http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=148299&id=528310778&l=24a93dff74 http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=148323&id=528310778&l=a080fc220c I'll upload it on Picassa too.
  8. Nope,it is not the aveo u-va engine.This is the second gen of the 1.0litre engine that does duty on the spark.That one is S-Tech and the one in the beat is S-Tech 2.It is a new engine.
  9. Chill dude. You are behaving as if?I have done a crime by considering a Cruze. I know its not that driver-friendly when comes to city rides but still it isnt that bad. I am close to 6'feet in height and the headroom wasnt that bad(means it was not more but at the same time was not disrupting). Its not that my father didnt liked the car, infact he loved it but he is more willing to go for VW as a brand than Chevrolet. Otherwise he liked the looks, loved the features and engine. The only concern for us is the grey interiors(which we didnt liked much), City driving and hard seats(they were somewhat hard & not that comfy at rear and we didnt liked that). Apart for that my dad even liked the Jetta for drive although the engine was noisy but only on outside and my mother is interested more in Jetta. And we are close to finalize on Jetta but are waiting for some good deals. Otherwise?I would still say that Cruze overall is good car at a good price, only if?I could get good seats and beige or full black interiors rather than dull grey. And?I dont know how many of you will believe me, but when Civic was launched, after some 6months there were quite a good number of Civic's in used car market, my father knows a used car dealer and he had 2Civic's and were selling between 8-10lacs. And one was just 2months old. So many times you come across some deals but that doesnt means that its a bad car. Within some 6months we will see how Cruze fares, does she disappoints the owners or not. Now its too early to comment. Well BS this happens.We are indians.We are HONDA slaves.Way too gullible.Critising is so easy as people are doing here.I am not objecting to it.It happens.The negatives of a car are highlighted than the positives.I was myself a big honda fan and the 1st gen city was probably one of the best cars to hit Indian roads.But I lost all my respect for that company who loots Indians.Overpriced cars.We jump to conclusions like hell.Nobody sees that a struggling car manufacturer has launched such a fantastic product for the Indian market.What does a customer want-looks,fuel efficient engine,power,comfort,features and above all the price.The cruze is an example of the company's devotion to the market,an entire new dimension to the phrase 'value for money'.Just compare it to the optra-it was a shoddy handler,lacklustre engine,it faired badly at the Euro NCAP tests.Now look at the Cruze-it has a five star safety rating,handling is miles ahead of the optra and it is truly an aspirational vehicle.Just see how far the company has gone in launching such a product.I was one of the first persons to drive the Cruze way back in september and it showed how much GM had worked on this vehicle.I truly am fond of this car.As I am informed by GM officials they are happy too as it has been very well received by the market.I know customers who are very happy with the product.But some people love to speak nonsense not even knowing the attributes of the product. @power-Id like to know which second hand dealer did you visit.I'd like to visit him.siddhant2009-12-09 05:47:56
  10. Whoa!Why do you want to cancel it?
  11. Well that is what I have heard also that it has crossed 1500 bookings and is expected to cross 2000 this month itself.
  12. No the 1l mjd is not coming in Jan,it is only the petrol that makes its debut at the auto expo.The diesel would hit showrooms around June 2010.
  13. Yup the spark electric would be displayed at the auto expo and hits showrooms in october next year.
  14. @vineet man the car looks stunning!! congrats on the buy!! have a great diwali with the cruze!
  15. Well GM is on fire.The cruze is launched at a mouthwatering price.The beat coming next year,the spark electric and the spark 800 coming next year,I have heard that ann upgraded captiva is also coming next year.Then comes the next-gen aveo sedan and hatchback(by 2011) which will DEFINATELY get the multijet engine.
  16. According to my sources the automatic diesel is coming at the auto expo in Jan and the petrol in April 2010.
  17. Nope the launch is at the expo I suppose.
  18. @sudan-Nope I compiled the info myself.Maybe its on another website,afterall the prices would be same everywhere right! @bluesapphire-I doubt they are providing the Chevy promise on this one,it does not come in the Captiva,so I guess its not here too.
  19. Well the upgraded version is for sure coming at the expo....major change is to the interior I suppose....its going to be after two years that the upgrade comes,though not required on such a good SUV but sure its coming.Confirmed.
