    Finally Converted Over......

    Long Story Short,


    1. Previous car would get 220 miles per tank on a good week and usually filled at least once if not twice weekly.....

    2. My hobby/fun job (teaching Group Fitness) is requiring me to drive more around town as I am now teaching at 4 different gyms some up to 25-30 miles away.

    3. Leather was a must - see #2 with me teaching all over I had to bring changes of clothes just to ride in my car even if in some cases for only 5 minutes to get home

    4. My previous car was a cop magnet. Easily first one pulled over for speeding, pulled over for tint, pulled over for stopping at a stop sign but passed the white line, stopped for having a license plate frame around my license plate (apparently those are illegal in FL and can incur a 114.00 ticket)

    5. Too busy to truly enjoy my car - in a given week I work over 55 hours with mandatory OT at my full time job

    6. Brother-in-law is service manager at local Chevrolet Dealership


    I decided as I get older my Needs are starting to outweigh my wants......

    I present my first American Car - 2012 Chevrolet Cruze LTZ RS in Crystal Red Tintcoat

    Overall I have yet to fully explore all the features - but its LOADED (had to go to work)

    Not including gas - I am already saving over 150.00 a month and car will be paid off same time as my Evolution would have......

    I was in such a hurry to get back to work I will have to take it back to get detailed..... Don't mind those plastic floor mats - its a pet peeve of mine to ruin the factory ones....lol

    Must be difficult dealing with the power deficit!

    The true test is not that you've converted to American -- it's if you stick with American.

    Best of luck!

    Nice lookin ride. The true test is if Chevrolet can make a vehicle good enough to keep his business. Glad he bought one, but we will see how the Cruze holds up and meets his expectations!
    Get used to more.

    One less Mitsubishi owner on this site. Too bad. All kidding aside, congratulations on your purchase. Great looking Cruze.

    Congratulations, and it seems your love affair with turbochargers will remain intact!
    I want a car so violent that the mere thought of full throttle would cause a heart attack. That actually going wide open throttle in would result in nothing less than instant death!
