A Wolf Of Four-door Clothing — Chevy did their homework on this car. It reminds me of the Porsches I've riden in. There are no squeaks or rattles. It is put together very soundly and engineered well. The windows go up and down quicker than other GM vehicles I'm used to as well. I wish it had a heated steering wheel. The heated seats are great with hi, medium and low settings for both the driver and the pasenger. There is plenty of leg room in the rear as well for two adults. The rear seats are 40-60 split fold-down.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great power from a 4-cylinder motor. The transmission has crisp shifts and is very predictable. All 4 windows are auto-down with the driver's window being auto-up also. The sound system is designed by Pioneer with a subwoofer and tweeters in the front--great sound. The seats are made for long hauls. It's fun to drive and it gets great gas mileage, especially short-shifting in manual mode.

Cons: There is some turbo lag. Pedal to the metal--expect lag, but just cracked, it scoots. It takes a full-synthetic oil to conditioin and cool the turbo (so I understand) the Chevy dealerships have. An oil change (every 10k miles) tire rotation  is $40 or so.

Makes For A Good Impulse Buy. — The Cruze was another emergency buy. My Nissan Altima has gone from "Own" to "Owned" because I totaled it in an accident on 6/21/12. I'm okay, just a few bruises, scrape, and fractured wrist. Luckily, I had money to buy this car this time. Last year, it was just out of reach. It's Certified Pre-Owned. Only 7,700mi used and clean CarFax. Performance isn't bad. Takes a little bit to pick up [yet I do like hearing the engine purr]. Brakes and handles well. I, of course, love the appearance, inside and out. Cost of ownership is yet to be determined. Gas does tend to go a little quick between stop and go traffic and air conditioning use. I can't say much about maintenance yet. That's TBD.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Appearance, Handling, Overall Fun to Drive

Cons: Slower Pick-up, Runs Low on Gas Quick (I live in NYC.)

Chevy Cruze — Poor acceleration but when u turn the traction control off it picks up quick. Full economy could be better too. Mine gets 28 miles to the gallon on average and most of my miles are highway. Been a good car this far though. Only thing I don't like is that pretty much all of the body is plastic. Looks good though and hasn't given me any trouble as of yet

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Color and style

Cons: acceleration

Awesome! — I love this car. It looks good, runs great, and I didn't spend a fortune. I have recommended the Cruze to my friends and, so far, two of them have gotten a Cruze. I wish the back seat area was bigger, but at least there's a ton of trunk space.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It looks sleek and yet it didn't break the bank.  If you get the 'connectivity package' you get all the cool bells and whistles.  

Cons: If you have a larger family I don't know if everyone would be comfortable at all times.

Good To Use In Metros — I really liked the seating comfort. The best part is the pick up of the turbojet engine. I just went on a test drive so could not make out the the millage figure, but then I hope this would give a economic millage on city streets... Had a really great experience of driving this..

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Heavy Appearence

Cons: Difficult to park

Great Car For The Money. — It is by far the best entry level car on the market today. its got a 4 cylinder engine with a 6 speed sequential gearbox. it is such a fun car to drive. the front wheel drive really makes it handle that much better. I got it only a week ago and have put on 150 miles because it is simply amazing to drive. \

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: interior, performance, its fun.

Cons: dont avoid it.

Chevrolet's Debut Into The Midsize Sedan Rocks — This car is awesome, it handles like it's on rails, build quality is awesome for its price range, it's not leather on wood, but the design makes up for the material. Absolutely a head-turner, running cost is average. absolutely fun to drive with a 6 speed auto and steptronic gearbox, throttle needs to be a little more responsive but it's awesome to drive

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: The looks and performace

Cons: Throttle response
