Great value at a low cost

2011 Chevrolet Cruze LT w/2LT

I purchased my vehicle used about 2 years ago. Since then, I have had no major problems. I have really enjoyed my Cruze, as it gets fairly good gas mileage and is pretty zippy. It has a little bit different look than other cars on the road right now. It is very comfortable for medium to long drives, although if you are over 6ft it may be a squeeze. With there being limited leg room in the backseat, it is not a good choice for transporting adults in the back, and it can be a tight squeeze to get a rear facing child seat in the back. Overall, great vehicle for the cost, I have really enjoyed it!

My vehicle is dependable. Its run of the mill affordable sedan in today's market.

2011 Chevrolet Cruze LT w/2LT

My car is good. It is zippy. It is fast and can get you where you need to go. It is reliable and is very fuel efficient. I am averaging 25 miles to the gallon. We had a 2001 Toyota sienna that died on us and we upgraded to the Chevrolet Cruze 2011 and it is quite the upgrade. Easy and fun to drive. It is compact inside, almost a little too compact. Nonetheless, it is fun to get around in and can comfortably fit 4. It will get you around, and the stereo is pretty good. It's a cool car to hop out of.

8 years old and still feels sporty and new!

2011 Chevrolet Cruze LT w/2LT

Great gas mileage, 28 mpg. Comfortable seating, plenty of storage. I've been able to haul building materials, 8ft. Longboards, bicycles, camping gear. I initially bought it because of the safety features. The frame has a roll cage designed into it. The metal stripping on the door handles started to peel off about 4 years after the purchase, but they were very easy to replace myself and not terribly expensive

2011 Chevy Cruze nice bang for your buck

2011 Chevrolet Cruze LT w/2LT

For the most part it has been a pretty good car, I've had problems with the window motors as two of my windows have fallen into the car door! Decent on gas. A small for door car perfect for compact. Also the air conditioning doesn't get cold unless I'm driving on the highway, but I have never gotten it supercharged and I doubt it has been since I've gotten it in 2014! Overall decent buy

Chevy Cruze LT has good mileage and adequate performance

2011 Chevrolet Cruze LT w/2LT

The car has a comfortable ride and os great on fuel mileage. I have the leather interior which is easy to maintain. The ecoboost engine saves gas and gets about 36 miles per gallon. The boost portion of the engine picks up when needed. There is a bit of a lag in performance.

- Carlos J

Good starter car for someone who is looking to save.

2011 Chevrolet Cruze LT w/2LT

Makes a weird ticking noise, when I have looked up what is wrong it says all of the ones from that year make that noise. I feel like I am always replacing the breaks. Other than that a good car. It is also good on gas, I do not spend a lot on it. Reliable car.

- Alexa P

A very small vehicle with great gas mileage and easy to navigate features.

2011 Chevrolet Cruze LT w/2LT

The seats could have a little more comfort to them. For the size, the vehicle has a lot more room that you would think. Great storage in the trunk as well. Love the features of the radio, easy to navigate. Very easy vehicle to drive and is super reliable.
