    My new 2012 Cruze LT RS

    After 3 almost trouble free years of owning a 2009 Chevy Cobalt SS, it was time to move on.

    I took this Cruze for an overnight test drive a couple weeks ago and ended up buying it a couple days later.

    2012 Cruze LT 1SB with RS package, navigation, Pioneer stereo upgrade.

    I'm not a big fan of paying extra for a premium color, but I have to admit that GM cars look amazing in that Crystal Red Tincoat.

    Really nice. I have a few questions if you wouldn't mind me asking:

    1.) How did you get those LTZ rims?
    2.) Did you get navigation?
    3.) How roomy is it on the inside?

I've talked to someone about this on another site that confirmed it Navigator isn't even being bench-marked at Cadillac too low for them.

    Those rims are part of the RS package in Canada.

    Yes, it has navigation.

    Front is roomy, rear is also provided 3 people aren't back there.

    Congratulations on your new wheels. These really are good-looking cars, GM did well with the Cruze.

    I like your license plate too, but I started hallucinating and fell into the computer screen, which turned out to be a New Reality.

    Beautiful car, W.A.F.U. Just out of curiosity, was there a particular reason you went with an automatic this time, or was it more a case of take what you could get?

    1. Fiance can't drive a manual.
    2. I don't have the patience to teach her.
    3. Factory remote start.
    4. Getting lazier as I get older.

    Congrats! I would pick the same car and paint option if I was looking for one.

    Looks pretty good. Enjoy the ride and let us know about your experience in a few months.

    All of which are very compelling reasons to opt for the slushbox. FWIW, I've been down road #2 before, and the results were anything but pretty.

    Nice car, hope you enjoy it as much as we have enjoyed ours. I bought an 2011, LT RS, white for the wife as well last year. No Nav, but we got the convenience package. We got the same wheels with the RS package....its a Canadian thing.

    For our US friends, the RS package on the LT gets you 4 wheel discs, those wheels, the appearance package, fogs and a lowered suspension. The package cost however is a couple grand compared to a few hundred sdown there.
