Hi Guys

I am looking at buying a holden cruze 2011 model with 1.4T auto

Any owners here let me know of any problems they have had with their cruze, so i know what i should check when i go to look at it..

Do they have any parts that wear bad or quick..

I have heard the turbo's can fail prematurly but from what i have read, its people who fail to keep up with servicing..

Appreciate any advice..


Also does anyone have an aftermarket gps fitted into the dash and whats it like

I read a bit before I bought mine and they all claim the1.6T was the better car. May be worth looking at a 2013 model if your funds will stretch that far.

The owners I have talked to talk about some coolant leaks and hoses causing issues due to the high temps they run.
