I have a four year old Optra 1.6 . Done 51K kms . Solid build quality , fantastic suspension absolutely no problem only routine maintenance done so far . Everything good except for poor resale otherwise a very reliable car. Just done a 1850 Kms round trip to Manali without any trouble at all.

I too have an 8 yr old Opel Corsa fantastic car absolutely no trouble does not have resale but who wants to sell such a fantastic car ? Interiors are much better than some of the premium cars of today .

You mean a couple near Matunga. I can see 2 in the first pic. The rear looks good, but, I'm not sure if I can say the same about the front from your pictures.

GM went down b'coz it lived in past they made excellent cars and still make some good ones . Hope fully once they have shed the baggage of past like huge labor costs , high insurance & payment for retirees etc. they should bounce back with a new how about GM India owning GM world

GM will bounce back. Its out of Chapter 11 protection in just 40 days, which should be record of sorts. Lets keep our fingers crossed and wish them all the best. Hopefully, they will keep Honda in check too as a fringe benefit to customers !!

I saw it near Chembur on Saturday afternoon. If memory serves me correctly there were two of them (both white). Like others have said seems like GM is testing it all over the country .

I couldn't get a proper look since the car was zooming by in the opposite direction, but the Cruze did look like a big sedan. Bigger than the Civic too, more Sonata like.

It has presence.

i saw those two cruzes curzing along the Dharavi T- Junction at 1:30 PM yesterday. Couldnt click pic as it was very heavy rains yesterday in the city.

Front profile looks good enough but sadly they have missed out on the rear styling, looks like Honda Civic also no LED tail lamps.
