I can swear to this. The 77 chevy vega I owned was a POS. I didn't buy another GM until 2002.

The Cruze has a legacy to fulfill. That legacy starts with the Vega and carries on with the Cavalier and Cobalt.

Anyone actually see one on the road yet?

The Cruze has already been the victim of a "stop sell" and "lot hold" this week.

Just what was the quality problem GM?
