Chevy Cruze 2011-great on gas mileage and oil changes are few and far in between

I have had this car for over 7 years and have had no major problems so far. I really like the computer dashboard. Instead of getting an oil change every so many miles, it keeps track by letting me know that percentage that is left. Sometimes I forget to turn off my turn signal and it will remind me after so long. I also have OnStar with it which is really great if there would seem to be an issue, I call them up and they give me number codes as to what the issue may be. It also gives me an estimate of how much gas I have left and how many more miles I can go before I run out of gas. It also has the option to purchase a membership to satellite radio. I really like the numerous USB and aux ports as well. I can use them to play my music or it also have Bluetooth capability if I don't want a bunch of wires showing all over. It has 2 cig lighter plugs in which I can plug both my GPS and radar detector in when I go on road trips. It can comfortably seat 5 people and has a large trunk in which I can store all my supplies for when I go camping. In the 7 years I have owned it, the only things I have had to replace is the windshield wipers and a few fuses and a headlight. It's really good with go long distances. I commute every 2 or 3 months on a 600 mile trip between Illinois and West Virginia and have had no major issues whatsoever

GM Karen customer service only cares about warranties

When your Cruze falls apart and you have questions in reguards to why you are paying for things unnecessary. The GM customer care ambassador Karen tells you well it’s not under warranty! Terrible service! You would never see this at Honda! Will never buy a Chevy again!!!! No wonder they are in financial crisis again and closing shops! It’s cause they make bad cars and use faulty parts. That’s what a service agent told me when I asked why I was back the second time for the same problem . So basically they admit to using faulty parts so this way guess you gotta come back. Then charge you for things not done...... make sure you double check with another Mechanic. I checked with 3 ! What I paid for wasn’t done ! And the actual problem wasn’t dealt with!!!! Reaching out for help at GM is a waste of time!!!! You talk to one person they brush you off to another. Then ( Karen customer service ambassador) will tell you it’s not under warranties so well basically too bad for you! All this takes about a month of wasting your time . And THEY honestly don’t care you have pics and other mechanics to prove it! There slogan should be”We don’t care cause your not under warranty! “”” Go to a dealship who cares and wants your business

My review of a 2011 Chevy Cruze: great small car on a budget

My Chevy Cruze has been a very reliable car. The seats are very comfortable as well as the stereo system has great sound and audio capabilities. Chevy has been fast and reliable about repairs and parts. The only major repairs needed were a new car battery after about 6 years into my ownership as well a new Cadillac converter about 7 years into my ownership. The trunk is also very spacious for a small car. The Cruze was affordable as well as reliable. I do have some concerns about the car. There are some blind spots to each side of the car windows and seats are not very big. As a small driver, I was very comfortable, but my larger passengers said they did not feel like there was enough leg room. There were also a few recall notices that were taken care of quickly. Overall, I have had great experiences with Chevy and feel comfortable recommending buyers to check it out. These cars may not be suitable for large families, but if anyone is looking for a new personal car with plenty of storage in the trunk, I believe it is worth looking into.
