I also bought a Chevy Cruze due to its advertised good mileage. I drive conservatively and still get typically 35 to 40 mpg on my 2002 Chevy Prizm. With my new Chevy Cruze, if I drive at 55 with no wind on a warm day, I can get approximately 34 mpg. If the speed is faster or slower or if it is colder out, the mileage is in the 28 mpg range or less. As the winter gets colder, the mileage appears to be dropping further. The six speed transmission is not smooth and is definitely not set for good gas mileage as the RPM at the 6th gear is higher than with my Chevy Aveo in its 3rd gear (Wjich averages ~32 mpg). Unless Chevy builds a truly good gas mileage car at a reasonable price, I may be forced to switch even though I have bought Chevy's for the past 40 years.Report it
I purchased a New Chevy Cruze ECO and I'm not averaging 25mpg and that's my main reason for buyng the cruze. I live n the country and the road I live on has 55 mph speed limit. I try to drive for good mileage but it's not happening!Report it
