    Narrowed my search down to Chevy Cruze or Mazda3. Drove a 2012 Eco and a 2013 1LT. Ended up buying the 2013 1LT. Was looking for good gas mileage & Cruze/Mazda3 both offered that. Was able to get a much better deal on the Cruze, so I went with that. Very happy with my purchase.
    Handling Ranked 2012 Mazda MAZDA3 better.
    "Cruze seems to have a little better pickup/power, but he Mazda3 handled a little better. Not much different to be honest."
    Cargo Capacity Ranked 2012 Mazda MAZDA3 worse.
    "Bigger trunk. Rear seats fold down if/when longer items need to be hauled."

    Sleek Design Nice Interior Look — Color options are nice, the car has sharp look to it. Front end is similar to me of the camarro. The back seat area has plenty of room, good on gas and perfect to get back and forth to work in. Factory tires dont last all that long but I think thats every mid-grade car.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Cost effective car, good on gas and plenty of zip. Like the dash functions.

    Cons: Arm rest is small and sits back to far to use as an arm rest

    Chevy Cruze — Not a whole lot to say, this car gets up when you need it (turbo is nice) takes a second to kick in though. Not the most stylish car, but its respectable. Kind of wish I still owned a Honda for the money I spent on it.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Good little car great gas mileage!

    Cons: Recalls and the price is a little steep for what you get.

    Chevy Cruze... Great Car For The Money — Price, fuel economy, options... great value! It is the quietest car in its class. In my opinion, it is the best car for the dollar in this range. On top of that, the cost of insurance is really low as well.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: It is really good on fuel and really quiet on the road. I like all the options that it has.

    Cons: It is low to the ground so when it snows, getting in and out of the driveway can be difficult.

    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. =(

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Accelerates fast, looks nice, comfortable, great cargo space

    Cons: Always slides on ice whenever the driver stops on the ice

    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.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Great looks, Great mileage.  Very techie.

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

    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.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    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.
