The Chevy Cruze Thread.

Recommended Posts

LTZ is a better buy with loads of features which makes Cruze special. And regarding color well its personal choice but in Cruze, the colors best to me are Black, Velvet Red and White. I have seen golden and its good to but not of my choice, and misty lake is worst of all. I havent seen Atlantis blue so cant comment.

Have seen 2 red Cruze in my city. It looks good.

Hi I have done close to 1500 now in mine. I own a White LTZ(first in North India). No issues till date. Have got it serviced for 1000Kms & the only issue that was pointed out (As i drive on Noida Express Highway) i could feel a bit of steering vibrations above 130km/hR. They are looking at getting that corrected & have asked me to send the car back for the repair.

 

This is a minot issue as i dont think many around will drive at such speeds in India. As for otherwise the car is awesone & has been providing a FE of 17KMPL.

I think you are facing wobbling at 130 kmph speed point. Do you see the vibration even after you cross 140/150? Looks like the wheel balancing / alignment was not done correctly for your car. This should be minor thing to fix.

Guys the issue is more of Wobbling which is due to wheel balancing. This could have been done by any Wheel balancer locally.

What impresses me the most is that Chevy is willing to own such a small issue too!!smiley32.gif

I personally dont know many who drive above 100 in metros. It is far & few inbetween like me who have facilities like Express highway to enjoy

The true charm of the car comes in when you drive it on speeds excess of 100. You come to know of the true pedigree of stonker of a engine under the hood.smiley2.gif

I have done upto 180 & have enjoyed it to core.

Am sure there are others who can & will do higher speeds as the car is well equiped too!!

You dont expect wobbling in a new car. That must have been taken care in PDI. So it was right for the dealer to own the issue.

 

Yes, Cruze looks solid till 180. It went on till 210. (The TD car was pulling towards one side. Wheel alignment issue there. Maybe it could have gone beyond that. Strangely, the speedometer reading is only upto 220!)

 

Its awesome that you are getting an unbelievable 17 kmpl on your car. Is it only you or most folks getting the same?

Well a new car should not have any wheel balancing problems. And although not in City but 130 is normal for highways and thus its not an small issue atleast for me.

Still we are yet to decide on new car. I think i will wait for Auto-Expo, delhi.

@Power, well i dont think any new cars are coming, but waiting for engine update for Jetta, may be a new common rail or TSi petrol.

And also looking forward to Linea 1.4Tjet or 1.6mjd, only if its with improved interiors(quality wise) and more features.

GM Cruze has keyless entry called 'Passive Entry Passive Start' [PEPS] feature, by which the owner/driver with keyfob in the pocket could enter and start the car.  If the owner/driver is outside the car within 2 m distance, then also the car could be started/boot opened by anyother unauthorized person.  I don't know whether this PEPS enhances security or is a security-risk, especially in India.

Its around 1 meter. You can try to start the car with the car in the back seat...it will not start. They have done enuff fine tuning with the system.
