I agree nice car, really like the color. Just a heads up if the engine is turbocharged, the water pumps tend to leak a lot on these cars. Just something to watch out for, but overall not a bad car.

That is interesting to note.
Is there a defect in the pumps or seals requiring new pumps frequently?

Nice car. I really like the new Cruze. I sat in one with the RS package at a car show and fell in love. Great feeling car, aggressive looking front end, and pretty roomy for a compact.

Majority of the leaks are right here. Just a bad design, new service procedure is too apply a layer of engine sealant over this so called cap. Its only on the turbocharged engines.
