Chevrolet Cruze saloon owner reviews

"It's spacious, well equipped and offers strong value for money, but the Chevrolet Cruze can't quite live up to the promise of its name – it's too uncomfortable."

I haven't bought any spare parts. Insurance is Ł180 and road tax is about Ł215. It is economical on fuel and yet a reasonably large/medium car too.

The car is fantastic to drive and extremely powerful. The odd rattle from the front cabin does occur but is not too distracting. MPG is ok but in this day and age it should be better. On a long run I can hit 60mpg which is good. Loads of extras as standard on the LT model and dash layout is brilliant. Servicing costs are high to be honest for a GM motor. Parts are very expensive so beware. The car is less than 4 years old, 35k miles on the clock and been diagnosed with a clutch problem (pedal sticks down). Been quoted just under £2,000 for repair! Out of warranty (only 3 years but I thought we had a 5 year one) and Chevrolet would only offer 10% goodwill which is a bit of an insult.
