'12 Chevy Cruze Eco — I really liked how fun this car was to drive. On a few 200 mile trips the car drove very smooth and my passengers and I agreed that the seats felt great too. However, the front two seats may not tailored for larger or tall people. Overall this is a great family car and a huge gas saver.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Sporty and quick, easy to drive, family friendly, gas mileage exceeds sticker estimates, large back seat

Cons: No spare tire, too much interior plastic

Great First Car — The cruze is a excellent car for new drivers or college freshman. It is a stylish, fuel efficient vehicle with loads of amenities. However, this isn't a car to use when chaffeuring friends or for passengers with long legs. I would recommend the vehicle as a great first car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: fuel efficient

Cons: small car only seats two (driver and passenger) comfortably

Grate On Gas — love this car just needs a little more power. The 1.4lt turbo is nice a 2.0lt turbo would be the best fit for this car. the same thing GM is putting in the all new Cadillac ATS has a 2.0 lt turbo putting aout around 300hp at the fly.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: good on gas.

Cons: a little underpowered

Our Family Loves It — Performance- handling is great Build Quality- Air Conditioning controls could be in a different place. My knees end up hitting it which causes it to crazy. Appearance - exterior is the best part of the car. Especially the RS version. Fun Factor- I would drive this on any trip I take

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fun to drive

Cons: acceleration not that great for a turbo

Sporty — Rides and drives like a sports car with excellet fuel economy. Interior features are plush, 2 tone tan, mocha dash and seating. Premium sound system has impressive high and low ranges, with an impressive bass boost. Chevy came out with a rare LT BLUE ICE METALIC paint job in 2012 and is stunning.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: 4 wheel disc brakes stop on a dime.  Turbo is awesome.

Cons: impressed with the whole car no cons to report.

Nice Little Daily Commuter. — For a car with an "Eco" label, it's surprisingly peppy and nimble. For a daily commuter, it's actually pretty fun to drive! The gas mileage is great as well. The front seats are too hard and are a bit too narrow for my personal taste, though.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: The styling, the handling, and the standard features

Cons: The front seats
