  1. dont worry friend.the cruze wont start if the key fob is not in the interior of the car!!and even if the car is started and the key is taken outside the car the car will switch offf itself in 10 mins!!and the cruze locks its doors when it crosses 20 kmph!!and if somebody happens to make a duplicate key for the car, there is a very loud anti-teft alarm waiting for him!!!go for the cruze wit both your eyes closed! smiley4.gif


  2. this is one very bad habit of kerala people!!!!if they see any nice looking or costly car,they will just go along the length of the car drawing lines smiley19.gif with whatever they have in hand!!!! i had just got my new chevy cruze teflon coated and within a week some one deliberately scratched the whole length of the car with roses drawn in some places smiley19.gif it is indeed a very sad experience smiley11.gif


  3. might be because of the auto cut off at max revs!!!!u must have reached the rev limiter.if you stay there for a long time the engine cuts itself off!!!!its just a matter of you getting used to it !!!!then nothing can stop the massive torque of the diesel rocket!! smiley4.gif


  4. does anyone of you know that the cruze has a system called gmlan???it is a form of a canbus.but gm claims it to be 50 times faster than other systems in cars like bmw,merc etc!!there is nothing like this in the laura smiley3.gif thanks to this system,every single feature of the cruze from the exit lighting to the safety systems can be adjusted using the info screen!!!the audio system itself is quite advanced as it is imported from USA from clarion and it even scans ID3 tags!!!! that means that it will sort the songs on the cd into-artists,genre,band etc etc etc!!!and according to me,the best feature is that the whole car is full of sensors!!!there is a sensor for virtually everything!!!it will check all the systems in the car and if there is any problem like if any bulb is fused or any short circuit,the car will give us a warning using numerical codes through the DIS.it even tells us if the car needs to be serviced!!with the code of the part neede to be serviced!!!does the laura or jetta have anything like this????


  5. it is not power we are talking about!!!in indian conditions what we need is torque!!and the cruze has loads and loads of it!for reference-it has more torque than a ford endeavour!!which by the way is a full size suv!and it is incredibly fuel efficient - i even managed 22.5 kmpl while cruzing at 120 kmph!!!!and has anybody noted the turning radius of the cruze ????it is better than most hatchbacks!!!in the laura we need to take two point turns while the cruze manages it in one!!!!then the ride quality in both the laura and the jetta is very stiff compared to the cruze!!!! and the vcdi engine is much much more advanced than the tdi thingy!!!the same engine in the rs diesel version of the cruze has more than 190ps of power!!

    Who said the vcdi in the cruze is not rev happy!!just try keeping your

    foot down and the vcdi will happily visit its 5k rev limit without

    breaking into a sweat!!!the refinement is also great!!the engines in the

    laura and jetta sound agricultural anywhere near their redline smiley36.gif

  6. it won't be a good idea to add xenons to the cruze!!!as pointe out by the chevrilet cruzeforum, the whole car is full of sensors!!!and if you will try to change anything in the original wiring loom with different resistance and all,the whole system would get spoilt and it will act like mad-indicators triggering headlights!!!etc-and moreover aftermarket xenons are banned here!!!you would be stopped by a cop if he sees you using it and you will be ordered to change to the original halogens!!!!!


  7. go in for the cruze!!!I own one and there is no other car which can match it!!!!it turns heads whereever it goes and performance is awesome!!!!it even has superb fuel economy-we even got 20.7kmpl while doing 120 kmph in a express way!!!!high speed stability is just amazing!!!the music system is superb and it has 2-3 notebooks full of features not mentioned in the brochure which you will only be able to discover when you read the owner's manual!!!!!!!!if you like it,dont wait a minute!!!go and get it!!you will enjoy every bit of it!!!!! smiley17.gif
