la auto show chevrolet cruze

Chevrolet just pulled the wraps off the US market Cruze, not that there are any secrets left at GM these days where auto shows are concerned. Plus the Cruze has been available around the world for months already. The big news is that the interior is actually – not pulling any punches – world class. Previously only the French were able to make a cloth covered dash worth looking at, but GM has actually managed to make a press fleet-ready car with one. As long as you pick the top trim level, anyway.

    Why did they have to include that self-conscious air intake slot above the grille? It's as if somebody at GM is still trying to vindicate the Aztek after all these years.

    Yikes! From what I've read this car is coming to Brazil and will substitute the Vectra. Sorry Gm but if there has ever been a car of yours I'd contemplate buying, that'd've been the Vectra (1st and 2nd generations, not what you call the Vectra now in Brazil, who all who know a little, know is an Astra). Or the Insignia of course, that as we car lovers know, is capable of holding a candle to the Mondeo. But this...Add in the fact that this will be sold at around US$35k down here. You can fool others, and as old honest Abe once famously said, well you get the rest.

  • Analoggrotto I'd try to smash a can of tuna and some crackers with some fruit to avoid the sugar, cholesterol, refined starch and other crap in fast and packaged foods. Otherwise, Wendy's spicy chicken sandwich without mayo is good.
  • TheEndlessEnigma The tires are worth more than than rest of the car. IT's also a Michigan car, probably has unreported frame rust problems.
  • TheEndlessEnigma Fiesta ST, I have a 2016, I'd love to grab the newest spec 2023.
  • Redapple2 Jimny - obviously.
  • ToolGuy Something like this.
