If you want to pick something today and save the remaining money for your next purchase, try the quadrajet Zest AMT, of course it is no comparison for a 11 L car, but with some compromise here and there is competent.

But it's almost () confirmed that Vento diesel with DSG is going to be launched. That's a car that'll be way better than the Verna.

Thanks .. I have seen few posts on issues with DSG on other VW models, will wait n watch

She's here. 33000 km on the odo. As good as new on the inside. A few scratches and dents on the Diamond White outside. Mechanically a 9 on 10. She's been maintained by Ashtavinayak Chevrolet through her life. And now she's mine! Got a low mileage LTZ Auto from a relative. She came with almost no tread left on the tires. So drove her straight to Saifee tires and got her Goodyear Assurance Armorgrips in the stock size.
The engine oil and the requisite filters will be changed after she comes back from the customary paint job.

Congratulations on choosing the beast ... And trust me being in mumbai you need to have an automatic.
Is this automatic the 5 speed or 6 speed one ?.
Saifee is a good tyre shop even I got my stock jk Tyres replaced with Bridgestone .
Hoping to see a new thread of ownership from you and enjoy the beast .

There was never a 5 speed Auto in the cruze sold in india. This is the older 150 Bhp 6 speed Auto. The newer cruze comes with 163 Bhp and an aisin warner transmission

I checked out a few Cruze ATs, what do you think would be a good price for 2 year old 40k run LTZ AT? Mechanically seemed pretty good when I took a TD.

8 to 9 L thereabouts.. Considering its in mint condition. You can however haggle more, not a lot of takers for a Chevy as we know

That's nowhere near the quotes I'm getting :( 3 year old LTZ MT are quoting 9 lacs here, the AT ones are quoting around 11.5 for 2 year old cars.

You should be looking to pay around 9.5 lakhs for a good example. There may not be takers for other Chevy's, but the Cruze AT is a SUPER hot favourite among used cars in Mumbai!

Hi, 2010 end/early 2011 Cruze ATs are available for 9-9.5 lacs. For Oct/Nov 2012 models, there aren't any available below 11.5 lacs. BTW, read your thread which made it pretty clear that Cruze is the only car in that budget that would appeal to both, the mind and the heart

Check under Cruze carefully before purchasing. it is always at risk of being badly scratch due to low gc
