2011 Chevrolet Cruze LTZ 4dr Sedan (1.4L 4cyl Turbo 6A)


I traded in an impala for the advertised gas mileage of the cruze, I took it on a road trip to Myrtle Beach SC and averaged
31 mpg, the impala averaged 32 on the same trip on the open road. I contacted GM a number of times and was old there was nothing that could be done, took it in to a local dealership, the computer scan was normal, tried to get GM to trade it back in for another impala, no luck on that either, during this time my wife bought a new nissan versa because she drives around 150 miles per day the versa averages 38 MPG on te open road and if you use cruise control it will average 42/43 MPG. I feel GM pulled the wool over everyones eyes with the MPG on the cruze

Best Features

Plenty of power for a 4 cyclinder, sporty looks, drives and handles well, rides good for a smaller car and like most of the features on the LTZ.

Worst Features

Dont use false advertising on MPG just to sell cars, greed sometimes takes over though.

I drove both Cruze and Versa and found the Versa more comfortable to drive overall, so I bought one. No regrets and love the car. I average the same MPGs as your wife.
