Huge step up from the Cobalt in styling, ride and handling, interior, and features.
However, I am only achieving 28 to 29 mpg on 98% highway driving with the 1.8L engine with 6-speed automatic transmission.
The EPA highway rating is 35 mpg.
I always achieve highway EPA mpg ratings on my cars with my driving style.
I took the Cruze back to the dealership to check out and I got 32.9 mpg on the loaner Malibu!
They found no issues but I am very disappointed in the poor fuel economy.
Styling, interior, great features (radio, bluetooth, onstar mylink)
Real world highway fuel economy is lousy.
I got better mpg with a loaner Malibu!
My only question is are you relying on the car's onboard computer for the gas mileage or are you calculating it after every fill-up?
There is often a bit of a difference.
Some people are under the impression that mileage goes up after the initial 5,000 mile break-in.
How are things now after having owned the car for some time?
