The Holden Cruze I purchased was built in South Korea, not in Australia like they are now.
A couple of minor cosmetic issues have arisen, such as the silver covering of the inside door handles has started peeling away.
The actual holes in the door that you pull to close the door on the inside of the car, have a piece of rubber at the bottom of them. This has come off on all doors. However, $2 glue could easily fix this issue.
Diesel turbo lag is annoying, especially when the air conditioning is on driving around town (starting off from traffic lights).
Highway driving is where this car excels. Awesome fuel economy; 850km a tank, or 800km a tank around town.
Despite not having the biggest engine, you can have the air con on, and have the car in 5th gear, and it will tear up a hill on the highway with no dramas. Has a lot of torque.
Car is comfortable, never had any mechanical issues, and would definitely buy another one.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
