Had an aging HHR that needed to be replaced.
I wanted a car that got good gas mileage (drive 35 miles one way to work) but wouldn't be an embarrasment.
Went into chevy to get a sonic but the cruze turned out to be a better deal.
I got the base model with 6 speed manual.
For the base model it has lots of equipment: power everything, keyless, on-star, satellite radio, etc.
The only thing missing that I notice is cruise control.
The interior is eye-catching and comfortable.
Very smooth and fun to drive.
6 speed manual will get you up the road no problem.
Satellite radio is the best--can't let that go.
Car wants to go and still has high fuel economy numbers.
interior, fun to drive, smooth and quiet ride, satellite radio, upscale classy carm, rear cupholders
front cupholders hold the cup so tight that when you try to pull the cup out, it is easy to knock the lid off...be careful
