2017 Chevrolet Cruze Hatchback Premier 4dr Hatchback (1.4L 4cyl Turbo 6A)


Review

don't do it! everything goes wrong on this car but let's focus on the daily struggle you're about to endure. The car doesn't accelerate properly and they say 1 or 2 things A. the car has a gas saving blah blah that's just the way it is but go down the street and they say you need a new transmission. Look all over the internet this is a common issue. The car is so uncomfortable to drive because of the seats and you have to manually do it it's not electronic and in 2018 it really sucks. Not to mention there's recalls on it but dealerships won't fix them at no cost unless you got it from a specific dealership and do all this paperwork. Spare yourself the trouble I still owe on it or it would be gone. At this point i'd rather trade it in and get a 500$ piece of crap that would drive better.

2017 Chevrolet Cruze Hatchback LT 4dr Hatchback (1.4L 4cyl Turbo 6A)


Review

I've had my 2017 Cruze for just a little over 18 months and now have 27800 miles. Took it on a 25 state road trip after driving it for the first 10 months. I love the agility but I'm disappointed with the auto stop feature, it's a little dangerous if you forget it's there when in a right on red situation. That two second delay catches you off guard and could get you in trouble when timing the approach of other traffic. This feature can lead to a semi-T-Boned accident if you are not careful (so far so good). I think it needs to be removed. It's not saving enough gasoline to risk having an accident and losing your life I always think in terms of harm virus benefit, and if you can't afford to waste two teaspoons of gasoline while waiting at a light or stop sign, you probably can't afford a car in the first place. Anyway, although it's not a rocket out of the gate, I love the mixture of spunk and agility once you're underway. It handled very in the Rocky's , made the twisty turny's fun to play in. Averaged 33 MPG at greater than speed (XXX MPH) and even on terrain. During my road trip I hit all four seasons, from snow in the Rocky's, to heavy rain and cross winds as I navigated the Great Plains. Road Trips allow you to really test drive the car, and it met all of my expectations. BTW, it handled very well at maximum speed 121 MPH ( on flat land and of course you have to be out there by yourself to travel at that speed). If you travel at that speed, look out for those sneaky dips in the road, they come up much faster then you realize or expect. Bottom line, aside from the auto stop feature, I love this car, it really rocks in looks, utility and function, the old fashion wipers are cool too. The way I grade a car is to ask myself, would I buy another one like this. The answer is hell yes.

Review

I am not sure but after reading reviews it might me just me, who thinks this car get awful fuel mileage. I drive about 100 miles per day and the only reason i bought the cruze over the equinox was for the fuel mileage. I drive mostly highways and rarely get stuck in traffic and I barely get over city mileage and no I dont beat on this car. To get any sort of descent mileage I have to leave everything off heated seats heater no remote start ext... and the best i have ever got is 31mpg wich is awful considering it is suppost to get 40+ also the premier package in the cruze is also sort of a joke it is probally equivalent to an LT in all other models no back up sensors, passenger seat is manual, and no duel climate control surprisingly it has heated seats I have had this car for three months and am meeting with dealer to possible trade in for a different car. I WOULD NOT RECOMEND THIS CAR TO ANYONE!!!

Review

The last year was a bit of a roller-coaster in our lives, and involved selling a bunch of stuff and relocating. Kept one vehicle, sold another (a Porsche Boxster) and I leased a Chevy Cruze Premier hatchback for myself to use daily. Moved to a colder climate and didn't want/need a convertible anymore, and our fully loaded car is SO much nicer than Chevrolets of the past and is amazingly comfortable. Honestly, it's easily as nice as our 2007 BMW 3-series was inside, and handles almost as well, incredibly. The car has been flawless so far, and feels incredibly solid and quiet, especially considering my expectations. Winter driving has also been beyond expectations, even though it's just a front-drive car with all-season tires. Our mileage approaches 40mpg on the highway, although for city driving in cold weather it's been in the low 20s. We test-drove a Cadillac ATS at the dealer with the 2.0L turbo engine, and this car could compete with a VW GTI if that engine were an option (I've had one of those, as well)

Review

Buy the gen 2 Cruze, 2017 or newer. You'll also want the 1.4L turbo engine, my last Cruze had 181k trouble free miles on that drive train. If your budget allows definitely get the premier trim, it's well worth the cost. I really have no negative comments on this car. If you are looking for a vehicle that offers many high end options at an inexpensive price while returning impressive fuel mileage, low operating cost and outstanding reliability, then this is your car. I chose the 2017 premier hatchback, it comes equipped with heated front & rear leather seats, heated steering wheel, 8 inch touch screen my link radio, Bose sound system, turn by turn navigation and too many other options to list.
