2011 Chevrolet Cruze Long Term Road Test


2011 Chevrolet Cruze LTZ: Big Horn Edition

February 25, 2011

Last night, it seemed like there was an unusually high amount of idiot drivers on the road. From drivers who were simply not paying attention to the road, to those who thought that blocking traffic is totally acceptable. My recent marathon sessions of playing Xbox games have left my hands in a gnarled mess, so obscene finger gestures were not an option. So in one of those "too close for missiles, go to guns" moments, I laid on the Cruze's horn.

And I was oh so pleasantly surprised.

It's not one of those wimpy little squeaks that are barely louder than a Vespa's. No, it's a good beefy report that screams "GET OUT OF MY WAY!" I used it so many times, I was half expecting it to stop working before I got home.

How I wish I could mount some push bars to the front of the car or give it the "Mean Mazda Deuce" treatment. In the meantime, deep breaths.
