Affordable Cruze, stylish overall great buy.

I really love the cruise. It handles really good in the snow/rain. The full costs are really affordable. They come standard with backup camera that is a really great feature. Keyless entry is another amazing feature. You just have to have your keys on you to open all four doors. Push to start another great thing. You just have to have your keys on you. I love the side mirrors have indicators in them when a car is coming past you, so you know when a car is coming up behind you and to the side of your car. Overall it is the most affordable car I have bought yet.

The most interesting thing about my car is the battery in the back of the car.

The performance on my Chevy Cruze is spectacular. It gets me where to go and has not left me stranded. I get great gas mileage in my car. I get up to 36-43 miles to the gallon. It is just the right size for me when I take my siblings to town or if I just went on a shopping spree. The trunk has an unbelievable amount of room. I have leather seats on my car which is okay. They have the heated seats feature which is great for the winter time. Although in the summer there is no coolant to the seats. Other than that everything in my car is perfect.

Chevy Cruze, best choice!

We needed a new vehicle so we looked around. I always thought that the Chevy Cruze was a little small for my family of 5. When we went to the dealer and got approved we found the Cruze in a very pretty blue color. We have had no problems with it whatsoever and it is a very cute car. I went from a vehicle that looked bigger on the outside to the Cruze but I can't believe how much space is actually in the the Cruze compared to my other vehicle. It is very reliable and I live the gadgets it has. I'm very happy with my new car.
