I LOVE Driving this car! Fuel Efficient!

This is a fun, extremely fuel efficient (better than advertised!), sporty car. Mine has a sunroof, which I love, Bose sound system, and electric. It has had NO service issues at all. I would highly recommend this car.

Much more than I expected!

I feel spoiled. From the keyless entry and start, to the gas saving shut off during idle at stoplights, to the seat warmers. So smooth riding and quiet. Much more than I expected. Needless to say, I am over the moon with this car!!!

Third Cruze I've owned.

Got the Premier pkg. on this, my third Cruze. Really nice car. Economical, dependable and good looking. After 3 years only issue was a slight smell from the engine compartment so I just used auto foam tape to seal the hood gap near the cabin air intake. Still drives like new.

Very under powered

Shopping for a new car for the wife. Looked at this car test drove and well I went to go push the peddle to the metal to see what it got and it did nothing. The 2009 Scion Xd naturally Aspirated had alot more get up and go then Chevrolet Cruze and the cruze is turbocharged it was insane plus the dealership also jacked the priced up by $7grand at signing. So, I do not recommend this car and pay attention at signing. I have no intentions on ever going back to that dealer. Worst part at the time the car was brand new only 5miles on it.

Peppy little turbo hatchback.

Cool updated features, I miss not having Homelink for my garage door. Bose sound system us nice! Sporty little RS hatchback with enough room for carrying a few extra items.

Very Practical commuter vehicle

I bought my LT 2017 Cruze (used with only 12000 miles on it for $11500 in August 2020) for its fuel economy and comfort I wanted in a daily commuter vehicle. It looks sharp in the optional blue color and its runs great. The engine is a little sluggish during initial acceleration until the turbo starts to work around 15 mph or so then it performs quite well, hard to believe its only a 1.4 liter engine. Fuel economy on the freeway is about 37+ mpg @ 75 mph, and around town it gets about 26 mpg. Everything in the interior seems to be organized well, the radio and dash display is clear and easy to understand. The trunk space is good. The Cruze is an excellent value. If it has a a down side, its the engine Auto Stop function as it lacks a turn off function. (I don't like having the engine stop at red lights etc. ) Still, putting it low and selecting 6th gear, the car performs and shifts normally without the engine stopping. so its really only a minor annoyance. GM needs to have a deactivation option. Other than that I really enjoy driving my Cruze. I'm completely satisfied with it in every way.

Love my Cruze

I started with this car as a brand new lease and I just converted it to a finance to own. I like my car, just what I need for performance and features.

Most reliable car I've owned

This car is exactly what I've needed. It performs excellent, and I've not had a single issue with it. I love this car and I will be keeping it for a very long time.

Haven't regretted this purchase

I purchased a 2017 Chevrolet Cruze Hatchback. I'm a 5"10 female approx 200 lb & I fit very comfortable in the front. The audio screen is huge & makes great for a back up camera. The air & heat blows with great force from the vents. I feel safe in my car & sporty. Also getting 35-40mpg so that's awesome! Went from a Kia Sportage to this and not regretting it.
