2012 Chevrolet Cruze LT Fleet 4dr Sedan (1.4L 4cyl Turbo 6A)


Review

I want to report on my trip to The national parks. I put 5400 miles on my cruz on this trip, and thought I would easily get 40 mpg on the interstates, but it never happened. The computer told me I was getting over 40 on many legs of the trip, but I kept actual numbers and gallons used and the best I ever got from fillup to fillup was 39.4. This was on virtually flat highway at speed of 65 mph. On a similar leg I got 39 even. Speeds above that gave results in the 34 to 35 mpg, which I thought was pretty good. My worst leg was when I got hung up in construction traffic for well over an hour, results there were 24.4. Worst leg without problems was 32.1 mpg while driving at 75 plus mph. Later.

2012 Chevrolet Cruze LTZ 4dr Sedan (1.4L 4cyl Turbo 6A)


Review

I drove my 2012 Cruze LT with automatic transmission to Niagara falls, Canada on 6/01/2013. I filled the gas in Conneaut, Ohio and drove the 147 miles to the falls.
I stayed 4 days and filled the tank in Erie, Pa. on the return trip. My totals were for the one tank of gas were 267 highway miles and 165 city miles. My computer readout said I averaged 39.9 MPG. I recorded the necessary numbers and the actual mileage was 37.5. That number is for city/highway combined. That is amazing and over what the manufacturer says the car gets for highway driving alone. I will be taking a trip later this month to Utah and I will report my mileage for a tank of driving on the highway. Bet it is over 40.


Best Features

Gas mileage, peppy engine.


Worst Features

at times the transmission is kind of jerky. rear parking sensor signal needs to be louder, or maybe even have a volume adjustment.

2012 Chevrolet Cruze Eco 4dr Sedan (1.4L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

Have 13,500 miles on a 2012 Cruze eco.
The mileage is phenomenal.
Took a trip last weekend through the mountains and averaged over 50 mpg.
13,500 miles and no problems to report.
The only small issue is the placement of the hot-cold dial for the climate control, the way I sit in the car my leg rests on it and sometimes I inadvertently turn it, otherwise, great car.


Best Features

Gas Mileage!! Room for 5, great entertainment system and vehicle computer.


Worst Features

Move the hot-cold dial for the AC away from the driver a little to improve driver leg room.

2012 Chevrolet Cruze 1LT 4dr Sedan (1.4L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

I've had my Cruze for a year now and 11,000 miles.
It has been trouble free.
You do get a lot of car for the money.
My advice is dont get the 1.4 turbo motor as the throttle response is terrible at highway speeds.
The problem is that the better
1.8 motor is only available on the LS model.
I've driven both and the 1.8 is better and gets the same mileage.
Sadly I plan on trade this car for one with better highway response.
If you can afford it buy the Malibu as it drives MUCH better.


Best Features

Seat comfort and Pioneer stereo.


Worst Features

Fix the lag at highway speeds!
