Pros : Amazing pickup, great looks, multiple features

Cons : Expensive maintenance


I own a 2011 Chevrolet Cruze AT. This car has been a mixed bag. Here is why-

Pros - Amazing pickup, the car designed for performance, comfortable (it's a sports car, shouldn't be more comfortable), great looks, multiple features, decent interiors.

Cons - Very expensive maintenance, pathetic service from the companies (Kropex and Trident, Bangalore), low on mileage.

Every service has cost me a minimum of Rs 20,000/- or more. The highest I have paid is 29750/- for a regular service. In about 4 years have spent more than 1,10,000/- maintaining this car.

Coupled with this the service centres do a pathetic job in servicing the car and charge you for unwanted parts. Also, the spares are too expensive.

To deal with this, I have started servicing my car myself. I have invested about 10,000/- on some tools and now I complete my service with higher quality parts at about 10,000/-. But the best part is that the car runs so smooth and is such a joy to drive. I have driven many models of BMWs and Mercs. None of them performed with such grace.

So if you are a bit of a grease monkey and willing to work yourself on the car, it's the best buy. Else, I would suggest you pick something else.
