Just would like to know what the bad press on Holden Cruze is all about and does it still apply to 2013 models?
The Holden Cruze is a badly designed dog of a car. It’s badly engineered and badly built. Many owners have problems. Holden is right down the bottom of all independent quality/reliability surveys.
Many of the faults persist. (The only faults car companies are required to acknowledge are the safety ones.)
You’re mad if you don’t buy a Mazda3 or a Hyundai i30 (or a Toyota Corolla) instead.
WOW okay maybe I will not buy a Cruze, even though I see lots of them on the road!
How about a Pulsar? Have had a 2002 model since new, never had a problem and it is still good but I just want to update while I have the money.
"Mad if you don't buy a Mazda3 or a Hyundai i30 or a Toyota Corolla." Means 'mad'. As in, certifiable. Not. A. Pulsar.
These cars are the same size as a Cruze.
If you want a slightly smaller car, try a Kia Rio. Also absolutely brilliant.
