(#2/#3 are redundant)1. It's a GM product.
I have assembled various things on a Cruze, mainly the dash and paint process. Depending on where the Cruze you're driving came from (on the driver's side door is a sticker where it's made, also the VIN will tell you too), I can say for sure at the very least, the US built ones are well built and our quality team do a very good job at making sure no defects leave the plant.My current ride is a rental. It's a Chevy Cruze. It completely sucks balls for three reasons:
1. It's a GM product.
2. AutoStop. Nothing like rolling up to a stop sign on an 85-degree humid day and the airco and fans stop as the car shuts off. I couldn't believe that. That is so GM. Iffy idea, and then completely incompetently implemented. Yeah, there' s hacky way to turn it off but why should I have to? Also, the car is so poorly built that it shudders when it it power cycles. And yeah, the last two Cruzes I had as rentals did the same thing - typical GM quality. See #1.
3. The back window is so narrow and so high that cars vanish behind me. I watched as a Miata changed lanes behind me and it was completely invisible. So poorly engineered.
Ride before that was a Prius...wasn't wowed, but it was at least made by engineers. I'm not sure who makes GM products.
Those come with the Dell or the flip flops.
