2017 Chevrolet Cruze Diesel LT 4dr Sedan (1.6L 4cyl Turbodiesel 9A)


Review

10 Months Old, 10,000 Miles and dealing with a Catastrophic and Premature Clutch Failure. Left my wife and children stranded on the road. Uncertain how long this will take to repair, sitting at Dealer now. In addition, DEF Tank leaking and needs Replacement, dripping white crusty stuff beneath the car. Warranty coverage but extremely inconvenient and disappointing since we like the car, it is peppy quiet comfortable and can easily demonstrate 60+ mpg highway.

2017 Chevrolet Cruze Diesel LT 4dr Sedan (1.6L 4cyl Turbodiesel 6M)


Review

If you are looking to replace that Diesel Jetta. Take a look at this. Its a lot of fun to drive, and the standard package gives you everything you would want, except an automatic rear view mirror. The gas mileage has been incredible. You can average 50 MPG on the highway on long trips, and get 30+ on mixed driving. The engine has a lot of torque, and the shift on the manual 6 speed is crisp and a lot of fun to drive. Build quality up to this point has been great. No rattles like I have seen in the Toyota Corolla (Rented one, and I couldn't wait to bring it back.) The steering is responsive and pulling out of curves while entering and exiting the the highway is a lot of fun. I would buy another one of these in a heart beat.

2017 Chevrolet Cruze Diesel LT 4dr Sedan (1.6L 4cyl Turbodiesel 9A)


Review

Very quick acceleration at low speeds due to higher torque from the diesel engine. If your not careful you will peel out. This car goes right up steep hills without slowing down. I average 44-50 mpg. If you do alot of city driving wou will get 40-44mpg if you are mostly driving on the hwy you will get 48-52 depending on traffic. Requires Diesel exaust fluid— 2.5 gallons at walm____ runs 7$ and will get you around 2,500 miles.

Review

Upon first driving car was impressed by acceleration for a diesel and smooth shifting and ride. Brakes are excellent. However after some time have found the ride to smooth and solid on smooth and solid roads. Anything but and the ride is as choppy and bouncy as my 2016 Jeep Cherokee(which is an appropriate ride for an SUV). Road impacts e.g potholes, manholes are loud and harsh for such a solid feeling chassis. Shifts are great unless you try evasive driving, three point turns or lift off and quickly accelerate again. Transmission moves to such a high gear, car barely moves or bogs down to no go which has become a huge safety concern for me. Full throttle, part throttle, nothing fixes it. God help you if a train is coming. Car auto stop feature has not returned car to on a couple of times when coming to full stop before a merge into traffic. Interior looks great except for uneven gaps, yellow foam from front seats showing. Navigation is voice request - call to get directions - no map. Android Auto works great but miss my Dodge that had great navigation options included with price of vehicle for five years. Road noise on all but new roads. Gas mileage is great, diesel is quiet in almost all situations. If they fixed the ride(without impacting the good handling) and transmission quirks in this car, it would be a delight five stars. 20% off purchase price PLUS incentives made this an economical purchase.
