2016 Chevrolet Cruze LS 4dr Sedan (1.4L 4cyl 6A)


Review

I really wanted to like this car but I don't...This car is fairly decent BESIDES the auto stop mandatory "feature".. Every other manufacturer gives the driver the ability to disable this feature, however, in the Cruze you are forced to deal with the engine shutting off at red lights, city driving, every stop sign, etc. This feature claims to save a whopping 1mpg, its so not worth it. There have been instances where it is hot out and my car shuts off for a few seconds and then you have to wait for the ac to kick back on, if it's cold and your windows are fogging up and you are desperately trying to see, DON'T WORRY IT WILL SHUT OFF AND MAKE YOUR WINDOWS FOG BACK UP. This car overall isn't terrible, it's painfully plain, but not terrible. The turbo does a decent job at accelerating however driving a car in basically the same price range, the Jetta, offers the same size engine, but the performance in the Jetta is waaaaaay better. Also the Cruze was recalled for a roof leaking issue, mine leaked in the car wash and the dealership tried to shampoo the cardboard-like headliner and it basically looks like damp paper now. The speakers in the LS + LT without bose are terrible, they are not loud, they pop almost instantly after and the dealer will "test them" by basically turning up your radio all of the way , which in turns blows all of your speakers and tells you there is nothing wrong with them. Chevy dropped the ball with this second generation model.. The fuel economy is nothing to brag about either

2016 Chevrolet Cruze Premier 4dr Sedan (1.4L 4cyl 6A)


Review

Auto stop feature totally ruins the car. Too many recalls. And serious issue with the Oxygen Sensor. This will be my 5th time in less than 2 years taking it in yet again this week. The bad part is, I paid extra for this Trim package to have the Remote Start in this cold Ohio weather. Everytime my Oxygen Sensor has issues and the engine light comes on, The remote start does not work! I am glad it was just a lease because I would never buy this car, or lease another one. I will say it looks nice, but that does me no good when it isn't a sound car mechanically.

Review

The foot emergency foot brake is difficult to engage and disengage. No CD player in the LT model. Heated front seats, power driver seat, remote start via cell phone keyless start and entry. Minor difficulty exit and enter car. Highway ride decent. Front seats comfortable and supportive All in all the car meets my driving requirements.

Review

Simply Shift into "L" and press the "+" sign on the shift knob 5 times while watching the speedometer display. The display will initially show "L1" but this will be incremented with each press of the "+" sign (ie: L2, L3, L4, L5 and L6). What you're actually doing is specifying the maximum gear to use while in Manual Shift Mode, with sixth gear (Top Gear-L6 selected) as the highest gear available. The car will still shift Up/Down automatically To/From whatever gear (L6 in this case) you specified, so you don't really need to manually press the "+" or "-" signs on the shifter for gear changes. It is important that you specify the appropriate maximum gear to use or the rev limiter will kick in! Just select sixth gear (L6). The car will not shut down at stoplights when in Manual Mode. I use Manual Mode with L6 selected only when I'm in heavy traffic and expecting shutdowns.
