Q: Will a 2011 Chevrolet Cruze be reliable for me?

asked by on

So, I've been on the hunt for a reliable and safe yet fun vehicle. And I have this 2011 Chevrolet Cruze LTZ in mind. It'll be my first car. I'll be buying it from a private owner and it has a few issues like dents on the door, sensors and one missing turn signal light. Is it worth it?

My car has 100000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

The 2011 Chevy Cruze LTZ is a great car and is known to be a reliable vehicle. As with any car, the reliability depends largely on how well the car has been maintained, the driving habits of the owner, the driving conditions and environment that the car is subjected to (i.e. extreme cold weather, etc.) and maintaining a regular service schedule throughout the car’s life. If you would like to have the car checked before moving forward with a purchase, a certified technician from YourMechanic can come to your car’s location to conduct a pre-purchase inspection to unveil any possible issues that may be apparent.
