Flashy Name, Subpar Car
The 2014 Chevrolet Cruze deftly combines responsive handling with a comfortable, compliant ride. The sport suspension on the 2LT, LTZ and Diesel models is firmer but still provides an agreeable ride. The turbocharged 1.4-liter gas engine is pretty average in terms of outright acceleration, but it's peppier around town than the 1.8-liter thanks to its increased torque. The main issue, however, is the automatic transmission. Programmed for maximum fuel economy, it's reluctant to downshift for quick acceleration and passing unless you really boot the gas pedal. The more potent Cruze diesel model is an intriguing choice and a win-win proposition, as it offers both good fuel economy and satisfyingly brisk acceleration by compact-sedan standards. As with most turbocharged engines, there's a moment of pause when you hit the throttle from a standstill, but then the sedan gathers speed quickly. The Cruze diesel uses a different six-speed automatic transmission from other Cruzes, and we've found it more responsive in highway passing situations. And forget about the stereotypical diesel clatter -- thanks to extra sound insulation in the diesel model, you'll rarely hear the engine at all.

I have owned my 2013 silver colored Chevy Cruze for about 7 months now and I have to say it is a pretty damn good car for the low lease price it comes in. Fuel efficiency is pretty solid at around 25-30 mpg in the lowest trim, and the car comes packed with some nice features such as power locking doors and windows, and an AC. Trunk storage is huge for a car this small and the interior is very roomy, though it can get a bit cramped for the rear passengers. Haven't had too many issues with the car itself but the sensor for the tire pressure is a bit faulty on my car and tends to give me an incorrect reading leading to unnecessary visits to a gas station. It's also not a fast car but I knew that from the get go given that it comes in a 4 cylinder engine only.
