I tested a Cruze Diesel last year as the local stealer in Edinburgh was having a "sale", ie. offloading pre-registered showroom models. It was ok, gearchange a little rubbery and a flat throttle response but once the turbo started blowing it went quite well. The interior was not great quality compared to the competition, Chevrolet (Daewoo really) always seems to be a let down here.

If you are in the market for a lower cost new TDI alternative then you could buy worse cars. However if Ford brought in the Focus TDCi or GM brought some of the European CDTi models then I wouldn't give it a second look though unless it was significantly cheaper.
