I myself do not like small cars or 4 cylinders so I may not fit your typical reviewer. I drive the car around 200 hwy miles a day 5 days a week since I picked it up. I average 52 mpg, can back up with pics if needed :). I do not hyper mile or anything close to this and regularly drive it up to 85 mph. I haven't had any issues with road noise or wear and tear on the interior. The car turns on a dime and can accelerate quit well for a 4 cylinder even at highway speeds. I had the dealer install the factory fog lights as it was the only thing I thought was missing to finish off the appearance. The XM radio works better than my wife's brand of vehicle in the it does not lose reception going under bridges and or trees. I also noticed you do not feel the drag on the motor when running the ac like my daughters brand of vehicle. Just for stats I am 6'3" 240 lbs in case any one that's of a larger size might be thinking of buying one of these cars.

I have had my 2013 Chevy Cruze LT about two years now. I love it! It gets great gas mileage and is comfortable for the size. I couldn't believe how much trunk space I get. I can fit 5 bowling balls with bags and still have room. My boyfriend is 6'2" so he has issues getting in and out of the car, but when he is seated he says he is comfortable just a little bit of a hassle. Otherwise, I am 5'8" and am completely comfortable! I haven't had to bring it into the shop for anything other then an oil change!

right car, right price.

by from Sarasota, Fl. on August 23, 2013

The cruze turbo is fast, very tight, comfortable and excellent on gas. It meets all my requirements as a college student.

This is my second Chevy Cruze. Enjoyed the first one, so I upgraded to a higher trim for the second one. Great ride and fun to drive. The 1.4 turbo ecotec has a lot more power and better fuel mileage than the 1.8L engine. I got 40 hwy mileage with the 1.8 and now 42 hwy with the 1.4. I like the styling ext and int. would highly recommend to anyone looking for a compact car. Go check one out!

I leased a 2012 Cruze LT. I loved it. I commute 45 miles round trip each day. I averaged 32-35 mpg. The color choice and interior choice were the best selection amongst all of the Cruze's peers. I had the unfortunate experience to test the airbags. My first collision ever, I went off the road in terrible weather. I impacted a concrete culvert at 40mph head on. All airbags went off. My little girl and I walked away without a scratch. I went back to the same dealership and replaced the LT with the ECO. Hands down, the ECO is twice as good. I average about 42 mpg. The interior black is sporty and the features are amazing...1 touch power windows, touchscreen center console, hands free Bluetooth, sporty chrome rims, etc, etc. It's an elegant/professional car with the budget in mind. My wife drives the Honda Civic drives the fully loaded Honda Civic. This car beats it in everyway...style, gas mileage and performance. I have a manual 6-speed by choice. I'll take a manual for performance and gas mileage over an automatic everytime.

Best performance econ value

by from South Jersey on October 30, 2013

I have 8K on my Cruze. No problems. I drove the automatic and didn't like the engine noise and constant gear searching. I drive manual trans. so I opted for the 6 speed manual. So far I love this car....
I have 8K on my Cruze. No problems. I drove the automatic and didn't like the engine noise and constant gear searching. I drive manual trans. so I opted for the 6 speed manual. So far I love this car. I have the 1.4 turbo. With two people in the car the performance is great. With four people you can feel the difference. The cruze handles very well. It corners well and it is rock solid at 80 mph. I just took a 1300 mi. freeway trip. Going 70 to 75 mph, I averaged about 40 mpg. I wish the 6th gear was taller. The shift up light comes on at 40 mph, telling you to go into 6th gear. Usually sixth is for 50 and up. I believe the cruze eco has a better highway gear ratio. I would have gotten the ECO if I had realized that before. Overall great car. I would check out the new diesel Cruze!!

I've owned a series of Cruzes and its predecessors. Always been a reliable, low maintenance car with excellent mileage. I love the large digital speedometer in the middle of the dash; I also like the way the sun flap can be moved on an extendable rod to cover more sun positions. Also appreciate the instrument panel's ability to show remaining oil life and tire pressures. Trunk is very spacious for a compact car. It's the perfect vehicle for all those short trips around town.
