"We had purchased a new 2012 Chevy Cruze LT 1 RS. Price was $20,000 and I LOVE this car!!
The RS package added on gave it a nice sporty (spoiler, ground effects, fog lamps, sport rims, RS badges, etc....) The interior styling looks sporty too, we went with black cloth. The options on this LT1 has a lot of features for the price; bluetooth (that actually works really well, the sound is great and your callers can here you talk really well even at a normal speaking volume) It has a back-up assist (let's me know when I'm 3,2,1 feet from an object) Tire pressure monitor, 2 trip settings, instant gas mileage, overall gas mileage, cruise control, tilt and telescopic steering wheel, leather wrapped steering wheel, XM radio, single CD player, power driver seat, rear defrost, A/C, Remote start (love this). on-star (if you have the onstar navigation package the turn by turn directions come to the car and shows the GPS turns either on the radio screen or on the display screen thats by the speedo. (really cool). Has a ton of air bags everywhere ....traction control, steering stability control, the ride is great feels like a mid-size car (not a choppy ride like a Toyota and it drives good too...like a sporty mid-size car. And I haven't even gotten to the gas mileage yet !! I get on average 35 miles per gallon and that's truly 50/50 hwy (65/70 miles per hour) city driving 25/45 miles per hour. And if I drive long distances on the interstate I get 40 MPG doing 65/70 miles per hour. I know I'm forgetting a few cool things but this should be plenty for you to go check on out! Truly the only few things I would like to see improved is adding 4 wheel disc brakes, It has drumsin the back. The 1.4 turbo gets awesome gas mileage but lacks "off the line power" (when you take off from a complete stop it doesn't have much power. However, once your up to speed the turbo has a chance to wind up and you have the extra power to pass if needed. (but hey, do you want great gas mileage, great looks....or more power that uses a lot more gas.) we save at least $50.00 bucks a week in gas over our old car 2006 Monte Carlo SS V-8. And my insurance price was really cheap on this new Cruze!! You wont get another car american or import with all these features at this price.
All I can say more is that I LOVE the car!!
You have to at least check out the Cruze LT1 RS Package."
