"Purchased my Cruze LTZ 2 wks ago and already 3000 miles on it. The price ($20,000) was fantastic for the amenities...
Sunroof, Heated Seats, Rear Camera, Leather Seats, Onstar, Satellite radio, etc. I traded in a Ford Escape that I loved, but couldn't afford the gas.(21mpg) I am saving approximately $50.oo more per month on gas than my car payment is. Last fill up my average was 38.5 mpg, that's a
combination of city/hwy. The 6 speed manual transmission is fun and gives me more control. Overall great value. Buy one have some fun!"
Pros: "6 speed, turbo, quiet, sturdy, stereo, on star"
Cons: "Tight cup holders, door locks under radio"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10
"Less than 600 miles, but so far so great. I had a 2010 Mazda 3I and traded it in on this ride. The Manual transmission is a blast to drive and I highly recommend it if you don't mind shifting. It is very low geared so be prepared to to shift often if you are in town. So far getting 37 MPG with 70% rural and Hwy driving, and that is with the AC running about half the time! Very quiet and comfy ride. I love the two toned interior and everything is easily within reach. Only complaint is the cupholders. They seem to swallow a large MacD ice tea cup and it's almost a two handed job to get it out. Hopefully the cup grasps will wear with time and it won't be such a pain."
"I have a 2011eco with 40k on it. I average 36 mpg. I mileage did go up once I switched to Amsoil synthetic. While still under warranty the dealer has put in a front axel seal and water pump. Today the check engine light came on. Looks like another trip to the dealer. I like the car but is not as reliable as the Honda's and Toyota's I've owned in the past."
"Great car. Small, yet plenty of room. Taller/Bigger people might have a little trouble with it. Small turbo engine provides plenty of power, though it does run through 1st and 2nd gears of the 6-speed manual quickly. No passing power in 6th."
