I drive 54 miles round trip on a daily basic and am very happy with most aspects of this car.
My drive consists of mixed driving and lots of different traffic flows.
Right now with 11,000 miles on the car in 4 months I have little to complain about.
The lifetime average with the car is 42 mpg.
On trips where I can use the open road I get in the low 50's mph.
The price of fuel here in Delaware is a little more than reg. gas but well below that of premium.
My one and only problem with the service from my local dealer was that they did not carry the oil or oil filter for the car.
Had to make a second appointment and return later for the oil change at about 6,000 miles. I highly recommend
I have been waiting years for for an American car company to make the cut, on a small diesel engine for a American can, Rumors have been permeating for the last 5 years in the diesel truck community for to be an American diesel powered car that we can afford to take to a shop if it needs repairs in the future because diesel engines last for a very long time and will out last the transmissions every 300k. You may not be a diesel fan like my self but even still there are many good reasons to go with this car.
- Top of the line tech.
- Great drivability and acceleration.
- less harm to the environment than a gasser.
- Seven hundred plus miles per tank.
- Awesome (real) leather seats
The Cruze diesel is amazing! Highway fuel mileage is over 50mpg if you drive at 70mph. Good acceleration,decent handling and ride qualities combined with nice leather interior are hard to beat in its class
After 15.000 completely trouble free miles it has only been back to my dealer for free oil service and tire rotation
Since I purchased the 2014 Cruze Turbo Diesel I have been getting outstanding hwy mileage such as the last trip I made was for 523 miles and my average at 70 miles per hour was 49.5 MPG. The car has plenty of get up and go in fact I must be careful as it can get too fast too quick. The Cruze is very comfortable with plenty of headroom and great foot space to stretch out. I was concerned with the power needed to climb the hills but was pleasantly surprised when the Cruze really didn't have to strain much at all. I highly recommend the Cruze Turbo Diesel to anyone wanting to drive green.
I was first interested in the car for its MPG and it hasn't disappointed me. Not only did I get 47+ on a 600-mile trip to LA and back (freeway, backed-up traffic and mountain passes), but the power is impressive. Set the cruise control at freeways speeds going uphill and it held its speed and didn't downshift (Grapevine or Cajon Pass).
Definitely a sporty feel but it rides very nice and the leather seats are quite comfortable.
Only complaint is MyLink system reset once then quit working another time for no apparent reason then started working again.
