Default Chevy Cruze Diesel at the local Chevron

I met the owner of the first and only Cruze diesel I have seen in south central texas at the local Chevron station last week. The owner was friendly and a bit of a tech head. Engineer for oil company. Owner also has a Dodge diesel pickup. He drives the Cruze about 500 -- 600 miles a week, mpg was about the same as my 2013 Passat which surprised me given EPA guestimates. It was noisier at idle than the TDI, but quiet in the cabin. Fit and finish looked OK. He paid about $24K 3 months ago. Smaller back seat than the Passat. He also said seats were uncomfortable on long trips.

He did mention that the dealers techs were clueless about the engine and parts were not in stock for 2 recalls. His was the second Cruze diesel the dealership had sold. He drove a loaner for a week waiting on parts.

Different than the VW for sure.
