    Is it an ECO? It has a rear seat armrest, I thought those were deleted on the ECO?

    That color is sharp! Very nice!!

    LOL- I'll never forget Fox Chevrolet. They repainted my Dad's S-10 for free. It had that horrible gray flaking problem and they took care of it!
    Get used to more.

    Maybe that was one of the items deleted on the manual to get too the 42mpg rating.

    If you suffered through repeated rear disc brake failures in the rust belt then drum brakes in the rear are not always bad. I'm still in the habit of walking past cars and glancing into the rear wheels looking for rusting rotors.

    I like how GM updated the multifunction display to show vehicle speed, DTE, and average fuel economy simultaneously.
    My modes of transportation: CityBus Greater Lafayette, rental cars (usually GM), bicycling, and walking.

    The multifunction display is one thing I don't like about the IC.
    Takes up valuable space for analog gauges. Also don't like pod style gauges and a 140mph speedo on this kind of car. 100mph speedo would be more than enough with better readability between the 10mph increments.

    Only on the manual Eco's, not the automatic. As to why that's the case, I remain flummoxed.

    Re: 2012 Eco Cruze For Sale - New Color

    I test drove an '11 Cruze Eco today and needless to say, it didn't find a spot in my heart.

    I'm not exactly sure what I found so disappointing about it. The Crystal Red paint was beautiful, as was the red and black cloth seats. The rims were very nice and it even has XM radio, something that I've decided a necessity in my next vehicle. The salesman left it running when he came in to the showroom to get me and as I walked by the car, I didn't even hear it running, an impressive feat in my eyes.

    However, when I took it out, the transmission just seemed to ruin it for me. I told the salesman that I would be most interested in a manual, but wouldn't rule out an auto. The car reminded me a bit of the Regal turbo, in the sense that you always seemed to be getting jerked around until the car got up to speed. The difference being in the Regal, there was enough torque to overcome what feels like lag between the transmission and turbo, the Cruze just seemed to fall on its face.

    Perhaps when a manual Eco becomes available I will be able to better understand what auto reviewers call "the best driving Cruze."

    I did however reaffirm my love for the CTS in any form. The car in question was a 3.0 AWD sedan, that even in white makes me lust after it.

    From the north east to the upper midwest.
    Basically any where that uses road salt to combat winter snow/ice.
    The new liquid de-icers are even more corrosive than natural rock salt.

    Cant say that Im a fan of that. Either way I absolutely LOVE my Cruze. I just wish it was a little bigger. It is going to be really hard deciding what to get for my car next year though. (I have it narrowed between a 2012 Escape Limited 4x4 V6, 2012 Cruze LTZ RS w/nav, or a certified 2009/2010 Bmw 328xi)
    Current:
    2016 Lincoln MKX 2.7 Reserve AWD

    Former:
    2002 Ford Explorer Xlt V8 4x4
    2004 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SL
    2008 Ford Edge Limited AWD
    2008 Jeep Commander Sport 4x4
    2010 Jeep Liberty Sport 4x4
    2011 Chevy Cruze LT
    2013 Ford Explorer XLT 4x4
    2015 Ford Explorer Sport
