Got the 2012 Cruze after a drunk driver totaled my 2011. I love my Cruze! I got mine in Topez Blue Metallic. The Interior is welcoming and feels more upscale then a Toyota or Honda. The price was right given the deal I could get through my bank. If you want more options in a smaller package for the same price consider the sonic.
Gas mileage (35 MPG), 6 speed Manual transmission, XM satellite radio, seats are really comfortable, rear seat center arm rests and Five Star Crash Test Rating
Put the top back on the storage area over the center console so I don't have to look at the reflection, cruise control as a dealer installed option for the LS , make the OnStar system a removable option (please) and a rear windshield wiper.
Me bud has a Cruze LS 6AT & the dealer installed cruise no problem.
With computer-controlled everything these days, this probably entailed little more than bolting-up the switch to the steering wheel.
GM is hiding this to up-sell you to an LT I am guessing.
