The Highest Rated Suv was at 89 , and the GL was 78 rated but still Reliability was below average. All Mercedes owner cost but for the C-class have a full black dot the C-class has a half...

    Chevy Cruze Diesel a direct competitor to the Jetta TDI

    So I wonder if the gas motor will just drop in to take the place of the diesel one. That would be helpful as the GM auto diesel motor was what killed the diesel market here in the USA.
