Test out all new features that you have never had in a car before.

I love the car, it's a nice color and runs great. One of the things I am not to thrilled about is "auto stop". So when I am driving and get to any kind of stop the car turns off, to save on fuel economy, but during the hot days of the summer if I have the air conditioner on and every time I come to a stop, the car turns off, which in turn turns my air off. So then I have to release the break to get the car to restart to get my air back on. And also being a brand new car when the air can back on it was stinky, not a good smell at all. Kind of a big pain. There is no option that I have found to turn it off. I was told unhooking its battery will always give me an error reading on my computer dash screen and I didn't want that. I tried to remove the fuse that controls the auto stop but it also disabled other features in the car so couldn't do that. During the winter I found out that it does not turn off if its under 40f but in summer has to be over a hundred ( that I have noticed) before it even thinks of not turning the car off. So if this feature had a button to turn it off then it would be a great car.

Love my Chevy Cruze, it is my favorite car I have ever purchased.

I got my Chevy Cruze brand new in summer of 2016! It only had twelve miles on it and I love driving it. My car has really good gas mileage which is very important to me. It is two years old and have not had a single problem with it. Very dependable and reliable. I love the heated seats feature. Warms up quickly in the winter. Good cold air for summer. It came with two years of Sirius XM radio which I loved and actually purchased a subscription after my trial. The seats are comfortable. I feel it has a nice big trunk. Plenty of legroom in back seat for passengers. I definitely will consider another Cruze when I am ready for new car down the road. Love the color of it as it is my favorite blue color. I have put about 50000 miles on it since I got it and no issues detected. It rides smoothly and drives smoothly at low and high speeds.

2016 Chevy Cruze. Practical and stylish.

So far, has been reliable. Performance has been good, but I do have issues with it revving up and not shifting on occasion. We bought it used, so there were stains, scratches, and cigarette burns, but other than that, it looks very good. Something annoying is that the seats have to be pumped up and down to adjust height. The seats are not automated at all (pumping up/down and bar to slide back and forth), but the windows and locks are. It has a manual feature that automatically shifts down when decelerating. Bluetooth connection possible for phone calls, but not for music. It has an aux cord, but ours does not work. The best thing about this car is the huge trunk. I can fit 1 huge suitcase and 2 small ones, plus a few smaller things.
