My first cardefinitely a good choice

2012 Chevrolet Cruze LS 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 6M)


My family had always been all about Honda's (and my dad a BMW person). This car has impressed me. 13,000 miles, no issues. The six speed manual is fun. My drives from Chicago to Champaign get me ~43 MPG at 75 mph cruise ctrl. I have seen as best as 46 MPG (65mph hwy) and worst 36 MPG (city). I see mixed 39-40 avg. These numbers are from my own calcs. Solid drive for a 1.4, turbo picks up, the interior isn't great but looks decent. Good lines looks elegant for a compact sedan. Bluetooth works all the time for me, good sound, very quite ride, and smooth. Takes awhile to learn how to use the gears properly, 4-6th are all O/D gears so I use 3rd to pass a lot. Overall, good, I recommend.

Best Features

Bluetooth, iPod/iPhone connectivity. Satellite radio.

Worst Features

Eliminate 4th gear as O/D. 5th/6th suffice for that.
