Nothing but electrical problems since the warranty expired 3000 miles ago. All gauges shut off while driving, lost power steering, almost crashed. Now they have come back on but every check light that could be on is on and none of the gauges are functioning. To include speedometer. Tough luck, you're out of warranty.

Wonderful Rental Experience

We were given one of these as a rental car while our new car was being repaired, and though I am happy to report a great rental experience, I am not sure if it is for better or worse that I was sad when our car was finished with repairs. I didn't want to turn in the Chevy - I liked it better than the car we just purchased! Oh well, live and learn. Meanwhile, I feel the need to recommend this to the public! Favorite features: Sleek appearance inside and out, comfort, and quite, smooth performance. Dislikes: For some reason, this model in particular had a glossy paneling for the gear shift area, which causes a bit of glare from the sun. It was also a bit hard to figure out how to program the sound features and radio - but this could be because I was previously used to old cars before everything was run off computers, and as I said, this was a rental, so I didn't have an owner's manual to get to know the car and it's features before driving off in it. I am sure for anyone who will have the pleasure of owning a Cruze, they can simply read the directions and figure it out quickly and easily.

Only driven 1000 miles, but all fun so far!

We have a1LT all-star edition with RS, Convenience, and Technology packages. I am 6' 4" and have no problem with front-seat head, shoulder, and leg room. The ecotec turbo 1.4L and 6-speed transmission is powerful and the steering responds well.The My Link info system's controls are also on the steering wheel which makes them very easy to use (voice recognition included). The whole dashboard seems clean, modern, and laid out for easy use. Mpg for the first 1000 miles averaged 32.4. City was 29.5 while highways were an impressive 39,8. We opted for a rear spoiler,sun roof, and fog lights. I also added pin striping to give the car a sportier look. Trunk space is huge and both back seats fold down. The first 1000 miles was great fun to drive! ---------- The only negative is there is almost no back seat leg room, but there is only 2 of us, so that's no big deal.

2014 Chevrolet Cruze LS

Hello, First I'd like to start off by saying this is my first new car. I'm pretty thrilled about it and have had it for a month now and have got a pretty good feel for it. It is a good little car, that simple. I don't want to put it down by saying that but it is the truth. This thing is a commuter car designed for the point A to point B and the to and from work kind of driving. The seats are a little more stiff than desired; I have minor back issues so for me if your driving this thing more than 30 minutes it starts becoming more uncomfortable. I believe these are a little overpriced, so you need to make sure you negotiate before you take the first 'offer' they throw at you. The suspension is tight which is a pain hitting pot holes but shows its purpose when you hit a sharp corner or begin to fishtail in some snow. Everything about the engine performance is lacking and I'm disappointed. But again, I just have to remind my self what this car was designed for. If you get the upgraded models, you will definitely enjoy more features than what I have like cruise control, heated seats, navigation, leather, fog lights etc. But even with he base model you get more than enough to keep you comfortable like power windows, power locks, automatic transmission, CD/XM radio, Onstar, daytime running headlights, etc. Over all it is a good car, I plan on keeping it for a while. As for reliability I cannot say first hand considering I've only owned it for a month but so far its been great! Haha. Any new car these days foreign or domestic if you drive with consideration, caution, take care of all scheduled maintenance and not drive like an idiot, it will last you forever. That simple.

I just leased a new 2014 at Auto Nations Chevrolet in Delray Beach, Fl. Our salesman Alan Berkowitz was awesome, He spent 3 hours with us He was so easy to work with and very pleasant. The whole dealership was great. I bought a 2009 Chev Malibu 4 years ago there and I got the same response. The general manager, the finance guy and the people in the service department were top notch. I can't say enough good things about Auto Nations Chevrolet.

My new 2014 Cruze diesel has exceeded my every expectation. It came standard with many great features including leather seating surfaces, 6 speed automatic with overdrive, 2.0 liter turbo diesel motor, tire pressure monitoring, steering wheel audio controls, Bluetooth, power driver's seat and mirrors, digital dash displays, remote start, Sirius satellite radio and OnStar just to name a few. At 46 MPG it leads the pack of 2014 American cars. I could not be happier with my choice. I rate it 5 stars.

I purchased the 2014 Chevy Cruze LT back in February and have not had a problem with it yet! I love this car. It is quite, efficient on gas, and looks great (especially with tinted windows on the tungsten metallic color). Everything feels good about this car, from the way it handles to the way the controls feel when you are driving. I was between this car and the 2014 ford focus but i did not like the look of the focus nor the interior design. Everything on the Ford Focus felt plastic and cheap, I was afraid I was going to break something when I test drove it. The Cruze on the other hand is just the opposite, plenty of room for all passengers, stylish, and has an luxurious feel to the interior. Nothing feels cheap in this car. The only negative I do have is the engine. I love the turbo and it takes off nice, great throttle response, but it does lack a bit of power at the higher speeds. If chevy throws a few more horses on the newer Cruzes this car would be perfect in my opinion! Other than that I have no complaints about this car! I would definitely buy again!
