2011 Chevrolet Cruze LTZ 4dr Sedan (1.4L 4cyl Turbo 6A)
Ice Blue LTZ looks better in person than in photos. Beautifully styled. Outstanding seat travel and adjustability for a tall driver. Getting 30 to 35 mpg so far. Impressive lack of shift busyness on hilly interstates. Tap Up/Down shifter is very useful. Coastdown shifts very poor. Good DIC and Bluetooth integration. Big trunk. Very nice steering feel with Michelin Pilot tires. Smooth ride if tires are at 30 psi recommended cold pressure.
Seat travel and adjustability, low price ($21K), exterior design, fuel economy, Bluetooth and DIC.
Auto trans calibration still very poor, even after TSB.
Very bad coastdown shifts, harsh 1-2 with converter clutch, neutral idle shift very intrusive.
