Pros

Gas mileage, appearance, handling, quietness, front seat comfort, smooth manual transmission, trunk space.

Cons

Had to return to dealership twice in first six months to fix cruise control (computer glitch) and replace right rear brake (squeaking).  Both covered by warranty, but still frustrating.  There are no rear cup holders.  Back seat space is tight.

Excellent Mpg But A Couple Of Mechanical Issues — The gas mileage has been excellent with my Eco manual. Most of my driving is around town (population 10,000), and I've averaged 46 mpg the last three months. On a recent 150-mile road trip averaging 60 mph, I got 54 mpg. (On the exact same trip the week before in a 2008 Prius, I got 52 mpg. The Eco beat the Prius!) On an 1100-mile interstate trip averaging 70 mph, it got 48 mpg. All of these MPGs are based on fill-ups, which almost always match the car's computer, by the way. I love how the car rides. The front seats are great on long trips - very comfortable. It handles corners well. The stick is really fun to drive! It's quiet. Trunk space is great. I get lots of compliments on the car's looks (black granite). Interior has a classy look, in my opinion. I've had to return it to the dealer two times in the first six months to fix the cruise control (had stopped working) and squeaky right rear brake (which has apparently been an issue on other Cruzes). Both were covered by warranty. In spite of those things, I love this car. It's our second Cruze, so we obviously like this car. Our first Cruze (2011) had no issues.

Great looks, Great mileage.  Very techie.

Cons

1.4L, even with a turbo is down on power, but hey ~ 40mpg.  It works for us.

Love It!!!! — This car does everything well, and a lot of things great. Our family travels quite a bit on the highways in WV. Big hills to climb, but shift from 6th to 5th, even loaded with luggage and the family, and ascends with little difficulty. Can't say enough about cargo room, and handling is very good. Great safety rating, evidenced by its close to 2 ton GVWR. Even with all this weight and only ~ 140 horses, it will get out of its own way! I haven't owned it long, but I can't say enough good things about it already.

This Is Another Great Car — The pros and cons are pretty self-explanatory, but if you like unorganized, here you go: Accelerates fast, looks nice, comfortable, great cargo space, always slides on ice whenever the driver stops on the ice This is a really great car, but it's just a rental. =(

Love It So Far. — Gets from point A to point B cheaply with some added fun. Brings back the weekend drive. It is quiet and solidly built. The turboed engine is ok at highway speeds and good at low speed. Traffic circles are fun now. If you have the oil pan heater the cord is located on the right side beside the air filter.
