Regarding the Buick, I simply can't wait too long; otherwise, I'd be open to the Regal wagon.
The Chevy salesman told me the Cruze Diesel isn't available yet (he could be wrong, as they often are), but I suspect I may still face the issue of stick/sunroof.
Couldn't convince my wife to check out the Audi A3 (no hatch other than e-Tron, which I think may be the old platform) and Bimmer 2-series, but they certainly would be on the higher end of lease prices of the bunch.
Not a motivating factor, but the smaller the payment, the better chance I'll pick up a motorcycle. :-)
