    5) No pre-installed reverse camera or extra front/side sensors.
To Improve
1) NAZA management should be more serious in promoting Chevrolet brand in Malaysia.

    The image - muscular, handsome, sporty, fast and furious
    The comfort - good suspension and superb handling
    The price - affordable price tag, good maintenance price
    The safety - the items given is sufficient at the price
    The savings - fuel consumption is good for highway and urban drive
    The paint quality of the bodykit - too bad cos after 30K KM, repaint 2 times, still have same problems, bad damage after fast drive cos of stonechips.
To Improve
Change the supplier of the aftermarket accessories i.e bodykit...
Improve the service center for parts and customer service

Dr Muhammad Faiz
LT 1.8 (A) (2012)
Bought new, Owned for 2 Years
RON95
    After more than 1 year of using the Cruze, I think the fuel consumption is average for the 1.8 liter "eco" engine (RM90 for routine short distance use per week from Putrajaya to Bandar Baru Bangi).

    1) Muscular exterior design and a non-boring dashboard with double tone fabric treatment.
    2) Excellent NVH level during average speed (during non-racing situation).
    3) Responsive electronic functions such as push start button, keyless entry, auto wipers, auto cruise, auto folding side mirrors, weather control aircond, etc.
    4) Lower price as compare to most 1.8 liter Japanese and Korean C-segment cars of the same year. Only RM108K in year 2012.
    5) TCS, ESC, EBD, ABS and Gear Shifter beneficial during long distance/high risk driving.
    6) Quality paint job for the main body (metal area). Still shining like new until today after ordinary wash.
    7) Nice pre-installed bodykit and 18' sport rim to enhance a sporty look.
    8) A wide variety of Cruze exclusive accessories. Can be acquired via online purchase. Mostly quite cheap and acceptable quality.
    9) Service every 6 months. Latest Cruze service every 9 months with 5 years of warranty. Cheap service (RM200) for the 1st 3 services.
    10) Service Center always less people, only got to wait maximum 2-3 hours before the car get ready.
    11) Satisfiable boot space especially for "Balik Kampung" journey. Otherwise the cabin is average.
    12) Hard but heavy body frame. NCAP 5 stars in safety. But only got 2 airbags.
    13) Brake disc for all 4 wheels.
    14) Windscreen with pre-tinted upper visor.
    1) Acceleration not as fast as other 1.8 liter C-Segment cars due to heavy body frame and non-turbocharged engine.
    2) Handling mechanism is average on curvy roads. Preve and Japanese C-segment cars handle better.
    3) Hard non leather stock seat. Got to put custom leather to make it comfortable.
    4) My variant (Cruze LT Sport Edition) come with no touchscreen head unit (no GPS/DVD/Bluetooth).
    5) No pre-installed LED DRL.
    6) No pre-installed Halogen HID headlights.
    7) No auto headlights.
    8) No paddle shifters (only gear stick shifter)
    9) No left foot rest pad for driver
    10) No dual zone aircond (no backseat air blower)
    11) Engine can suddenly roaring a hard noise when the gas paddle pushed more for take over/racing acceleration.
    12) Chevrolet 3S Center still scarce in Malaysia. NAZA slightly overlooked this brand. Some spare parts require months to get.
    13) Some told that the car got low after sale value but hardly to see people want to sell this car after a brief use.
    14) No pre-installed reverse camera or extra front/side sensors.
To Improve
1) NAZA must promote this brand aggresively. Advertise it more!
2) Give a choice of optional gadget installation. Do it as an add on package.
3) Please ensure the supply of certain spare parts.

muhammad shukri
LT 1.8 (A) (2011)
Bought new, Owned for 3 Years
Fuel Economy: 10.0 km/litre (10.0 L/100 km), RON95, Mileage: 3,000 km/month
    Practical C-segment sedan
    Handling on B roads are generally good
    At highway speed limit, wind noise is acceptable
    Comfortable cruiser on highway
    The 1.8 engine is sluggish especially on hill roads
    Only 2 airbags
    As the car come fitted with 18" rims, the ride is a little bumpy
    Tyre noise is intrussive (maybe due to tyre choice, currently fitted on firestone T700)
To Improve
I hope they bring in the 1.4 L turbo variant and add the number of airbags
Yes, I would recommend this car
