45mph-0 in the rain. ABS slow to kick in, rear-end felt nervous. Not to keep touting the Focus, but the rudimentary beam axle in the Cruze is at fault here...the Watt's link (Z-link if you're in GM marketing) does little for directional stability. Focus has a Control Blade (trailing arm link) independent rear suspension and it keeps it more planted.
2012 Chevrolet Cruze 2LT Quick Look
Sorry guys, this video wasn't well done...kinda rushed. 2012 Chevrolet
Cruze 2LT with 1.4L turbo 4cyl and 6spd
automatic transmission interior, exterior, start up, rev, etc.
MSRP is about $22,990
ABS vs. No ABS - Episode 4
Basically a re-make of Episode 1, with real life footage.
A lot of people claim that since past episodes are 3D representations,
therefore are fake or innacurate.
I know the difference would be much different if surface was wet, oily,
with gravel, mud, etc... My videos are based on day to day conditions.
Also I´m just trying to make a single point : "It is possible to stop on a
shorter distance without ABS"
I know it lets you steer, and all that stuff, but right now I´m not
dealing with it (maybe later). ABS is a safety feature but it always comes
to the driver to manouver correctly under dangerous circumnstances and take
the right decitions to avoid an accident. (like lowering your speed if road
is on low traction conditions, or not speeding while getting to a blind
Here´s me demonstrating what I´ve shown in previous episodes. I´m the
- In 2nd Threshold braking, I missed my braking point (a bush I used as
reference) so I had to brake a bit harder, you can see ABS is disabled
because on the last second my rear wheel locks.
- I changed locations because the tests where on different days, I have to
find a nice lone road to do them, and the tests of threshold braking I made
on the 1st location lacked a lot of references and was very hard to brake
always at the same speed, also I had less road to speed up and keep that
speed before braking.
- I lose speedometer when I disable ABS, how do I know I´m reaching the
same speed? well, I perform an ABS test and look at the tachometer to see
how much revolutions at certain gear I need for that particular speed (in
this case it was 3500 revs in 2nd gear for 55-60 kmph)
- The voice is all weird because its from a text to speech engine, it is
not me talking. I wanted to narrate stuff instead of typing everything like
on past episodes.
The car is a standard production car. Opel Astra with stock brakes, braking
pads are not new (in fact they need to be replaced)
Wheels are Michelin hydroedge, which are great to avoid hydroplaning and
they´re very hard, so they last a long way. There´s no flat stop after
the full lock test.

2011 Chevy Cruze review after 1 year and $2k in mods.
I didn't get to read off my 0-60 yet, but I'll have that up soon. This
Cruze is a great car and I've had minimal problems with it, even after all
that I've done to it. I did forget in the video to show my Ultra Racing
chassis bars, which have helped greatly with the handling. Most of the
parts I've gotten for my Cruze have been provided through Steve @
Steve is a great guy and a personal friend, he is always there to help if
you have questions and will even work on weekends if you have a problem
with an order from him. Great service and one of the leading parts
providers for the Chevy Cruze!

Have you ever seen an Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) in action? Mike Brewer
