  1. And the value of my 2014 Cruze goes into the toilet even more. Thanks GM. I swear to god this Cruze was the last brand new vehicle I ever buy.
  2. GM's resale sucks anyhow. Took my 2014 Cruze to a few Chevy Dealer's and Carmax. Best offer was $11,500 at Carmax of all places! What a joke! The GM Dealers don't even want to give you anything for their own product! I'll remember that next time when I'm bypassing the Chevy dealer to head over to the Honda dealership.
  3. I can buy a decent house in my area for the cost of these new pickups. Ridiculous. I'll keep my 2006 Silverado.
  4. You mean take care of the problem that they first became apparently aware of 10 years ago? Dodge would never do anything of the sort right?
  5. Wow, 30k for a Cruze! Canada is expensive! Glad you like the Spark.
  6. It made the truck sluggish. It just didn't work well in the hilly terrain around here. I had it turned off, but the truck still acted funny like it was always shifting or something. It's also not a very reliable system imo. All of the components involved to make it work there is no way an engine with it will have the longevity of an engine without it. Then there's the issue of oil consumption, and lifter noise that some people have (my parents 07 Monte Carlo SS is one with lifter noise at 47,000 miles). My parents SS also has a problem with the car randomly jerking when AFM engages. That issue just started one day out of the blue, and it comes and goes depending on the day I guess. Overall I think the system is complete garbage, and will never go back to a truck that has it.
  7. Thanks guys. I plan to get a GMT800 pickup again sometime in the future after I get a house. I liked the 900 series, but hated AFM. Only way I can see getting a 900 series again is if I can find another 6.2L, but I would be happy with just an 800 series 5.3 truck.
  8. Thanks guys! I have the Automatic Transmission. I thought about getting a manual, but I figured shifting would get old after a while.
  9. Well, due to trying to free up more income to look for a nice house I traded my 2011 Silverado 6.2L on Saturday for this 2014 Cruze: Only picture I have right now. My Wife has a 2012 RS just like this only in white with a sunroof. I opted for the technology package with the Chevy Mylink & back up camera instead of the All Star Package. It was $19,835 with the 2K rebate. My Wife's has a little over 50,000 miles on it, and it is a great car! This is the third brand new GM I have owned, and the 7th GM vehicle I've owned since I was 17.
  10. The limitation you're seeing is purely power train related and nothing to do with the frame or weight. Simply opt up to the 5.3 V8 in the W/T (which also puts you into the 6-speed rather than 4-speed auto) with a 3.08 rear end and you can have 7400lbs. trailering or 9100lbs. with 3.42 rear end. Or 10,400 with the 6.2 and 3.73's
  11. I like the comments he makes about AFM. They might as well get rid of the V8 as far as im concerned because any GM V8 engine or any engine for that matter that has AFM is dead to me. It's a terrible system that's rough, makes the engine gutless (especially in my area), and in some cases causes the engine to use oil. I hated driving my last truck so much because of it that I had to off it for my current truck with the 6.2L which drives how a truck should drive. Now they have to continue to shove it down my throat by shoving it on every new truck engine including the V6! I'll be holding on to my current truck until I go to my grave.
  12. Which begs the question, what took them so long to bring it here? And after all the moaning about not doing a rebadge of the G8 as a Chevy they basically do it from the Holden. So why not just do it with the G8 in the first place? It would have had the old exterior and interior...they waited until the Holden MCE. Nothing wrong with that. The car would cost less with (maybe two engine choices) which would be in mine and alot of other peoples price range. I have no problem with the G8 interior or the Caprice PPV exterior, and I can do without all the fancy garbage that drives the price of the car up. Pretty sad when they price these cars so high that the only one who can buy one is a 70 year old retiree. Sorry, I just don't see why these price points need to be so high for a car that can't do anything near what a pickup can, and most of them have a lower price point...

  14. Chevelle fits that car perfectly. Very sharp!
  15. I do have to agree that there does seem to be very slow learning people at the helm...

  17. I must be the only one who likes the styling of it? The only thing I really don't care about is the park assist and lane departure warning. Id love to have one, but I highly doubt it will be in my price point so it looks like I'll have to pick up a nice second hand G8. On a side note the automatic transmission doesn't bother me either. My wifes Cruze and my Silverado with the manual shift mode work great to me.
  18. Haha yea same here i bought these from a guy on craigslist about 3 hours away from me for $300. They were spotless. I hated the stock rims and tires that came on it since it has the NHT Package.
  19. I like those wheels too. Maybe If theres a set I like on the Silverados I'll buy a nice used set of takeoffs eventually for my Silverado if they fit.
