Great Car

This is a great car for a person my size. Plenty of leg room and very comfortable. This car has plenty of power and is very easy to handle. The car is very quiet.


Most reliable car I own

This car is exactly what I wanted. Runs great! The car had great features. It’s great for my daily commute. Definitely would recommend people to get this car


I love my Cruze. It should never been cancelled.

This car middle of my needs. I had it as a lease for 3 years and I enjoyed all 3. I wound up buying out the lease because I could not get another cruise new. I would recommend it to a friend unfortunately they wouldn't be able to buy one new either.
