I did a demo on the Etios but was not convinced about the sound quality maybe due to the tinny stock speakers of the Etios. Anyways I am getting inclined towards Blaupunkt New York 800. Still not decided.

Hello Lawyer and all my other friends on Team Bhp.

After much discussions and research I have made up my mind to purchase the Cruze LTZ AT variant (preferably in dark blue). I will not waste much time in going into detail about the car and its features as the ample posts on this forum and elsewhere givinf a positive feedback and terming it as "a value for money' car.

What I want to request for is the long term ownership feedback of this LTZ AT model. I read about the constant AC break down issues with the car and it seems to worry me a bit ? Also is it worth the tyres upgrade soon after purchase. I know JK tyres are no where upto the mark, but considering that my driving will be mostly city limited driving, do I spend the extra money for the Continentals or any other good bran immediately.

My guess is that if I were to exchange these tyres immediately after my purchase, I might get somewhere around 4000 per tyre and I will still have to put it at least another 20000 for 5 new tyres. Considering I am already shooting my preferred budget with this purchase (by a few lacs !!!), i do not mind driving around in the JK's for a year and then changing them, until and unless the drive is truly pathetic in the stock tyres ?

My next big concern is the after sales. Having read and heard horror stories on the poor after sales, I do not want to spend so much money on a car that takes away a lot of my time on running to workshops. I drive a Swift and City right now and after sales has never been a concern with these cars, obviously. I know Skoda and VW do not offer any better after sales but I just wanted advise on this from all of you.

Long and short - should I go in for this car and can live happily with it ?

Also I might wait till May end - June, when the face lift Cruze launch is rumored.

Thanks for your help.

I have been using Cruze AT for almost two years and havent faced any problem. Neither do I have any bad experience to share. Having driven 30k in this car, it hasn't given me any trouble till date.

Regarding ***, its just like any other experience. Aravali's work shop in Gurgaon is really good and they have a nice waiting lounge there.

I would recommend taking their extra warranty and three years maintenance package. You wont have to bother much about there after.

Can anyone (lawyer) provide feedback on Regent Chevrolet Faridabad, specially with regard to their after sales and customer support ? I am deciding between Metro Delhi and Regent. The sales reprentative at Metro is known to me and is a very courteous and helpful person, while Regent is offering me a better deal. User experiences requested as I plan to go and ok the Cruze AT today.

hi mobike008, this is where i found it http://www.snapdeal.com/product/mega...ombo/163695421
though it says 20K, while you checkout, you get an additional 18% off and that comes to around 17K odd. but i see 2 models in the same website, one is this one which is MAODL51 and the other one MAOE851 which seems to be costlier i.e. around 35+k after discount. dont know what is the difference between these models. need to check that out..

i think i got the difference between the 2. The cheaper one MAODL51 doesn't have a CD/DVD drive, though it supports external hard drive and USB. Not sure if we can play movies through the external drives as i think we can get a USB ready CD/DVD drive easily in the market for much less.

Pretty lame way to reduce a 40K product to 17K by excluding the DVD/CD option and calling it a deckless drive product

Just 2 reviews of this product and both have given stern warning to stay away from this product

I too would suggest the same to you !!!

Thanks mobike008! yeah I was anyway thinking of staying away from it, more because I was skeptical about the long term reliability of these products. I would rather go for a brand like Pioneer/Kenwood, but the only issue is that I am not sure if the steering mounted controls would work and if I can live without cutting wires. Is there any model that anyone is aware of in these leading brands that provides such an alternative?

Yes connects 2 adaptors are available through most reputed audio ships across India. Check locally and you should be able to find it easily. I run a similar kit in my fiat Linea for the last couple of years. Procured it from Kumar's auto in Bangalore.

thanks Nitin.. will check it out sometime in coming days. however i read in another thread that for Cruze the connect 2 kit cost around 16K. i dont think i will be able to spend that much on the kit alone at this point, since i have plans of changing my tyres too, which might cost me almost 40 K
so looking out for other options to install a double din too.. let me check with some shopkeepers especially on the GP road here in chennai.

Surely can't be 16k. Most of these adapters retail for 5-6k including the HU patch lead. In your case since its an OEM HU, I would say it may cost a couple grand extra, but no more.
