Forrest green was #2 for her, and they had one. It didn't have the moon roof, so no good. She hasn't had a new car in a while, so "settling" was not an option. It was worth the wait.

We bought ours on 26 of June.
Was fortunate that Chev had a
20% off suggested MFSLP.
Final total cost was $21408.70
At the exchange rate on day of
purchase put the price at about
$17800.00 US.

Champagne with Black interior.
It came with a full tank and I
filled it for the first time yesterday.
Made fast trip to Calgary Airport on
Friday.Average was 3.9 ltrs/100kilos
and 4.1/100 best.
This worked out to 68.9 and 72.4 mpg
Canadian. This was with Cruise set at
105 kph(64 mph).Metric stinks
A very satisfactory result.
My only complaint is the DIC.
At 84 yrs old, where can I find a Collage
or University that has a BA with a Major
in understanding how to use the darn thing?
Over all a well built product,GM did
themselves proud.

Sexy, yes. No Diesel? First I heard of that. We have a date in a couple weeks to order a 2016 Diesel. Gonna trade up before we use all the warranty. Diesel was on the order sheet as of a couple weeks ago.

That is why I wish they would install a diesel version of it like with the Focus. But what really I admire with the new Cruze design is the sexy looks and the flush exhaust tip, it really looked very clean.

Am I reading this right? GM dropping the Cruze diesel? What's the latest news on this? I've been more than half-way thinking about trading our Malibu, back home in Vt. and it would be for a Cruze diesel, if I had my way.

No, not really. They aren't talking much about it, but the Diesel option is only, supposedly, temporarily unavailable. The reason given is, the 2016 model was re-tooled as of January 1. The only available new model now manufacturing is the "Cruze Limited", which is not available with the Diesel option. The latest word I have is, the Diesel option will be available again with the 2017 model year. Considering GM's past tooling transition model years, this isn't uncommon, or unusual. Why they do this, I dunno. It could be a powertrain certification issue, or it could be just a wild hair, somewhere. Either way, I'm OK with it, as long as they offer the option again. Teresa loves her car, and the only reason we want to trade up is to get the greater trade value with lower miles and warranty left. It doesn't really matter to me, as I don't drive it nearly as often as she does. She fills it up, and it just goes. No significant issues, to date, which is kinda boring to me (but I'm OK with a car that doesn't break). She's happy, so I'm happy.

Thanks, Maverick.
Back in 013, when we bought the used 011 Malibu, I had driven a gas Cruse, here in Texas before we flew home for Christmas, and loved it. I didn't notice that it was particularly hard to get into/ out of, but our son tried one at home and complained about that issue. Well, he talked me into buying the Malibu, because it was a flood car with less than 5000 miles on it, and we got a deal.
Now, guess which car he complains about entry/exit? So, after all that being said, what's you'r feeling about that issue? Same-worse-better than a Cruse?

It's a small (compact) car, to be sure. However, entry/exit is as good as any compact to mid-size car. The seat, when lowered all the way, is very low, but not any lower than any similar size car. I'm 9" taller (less-short) than my wife, so trading drivers requires prior seat movement. No problem, it's powered. The trade-off is leg room for rear passengers, if a tall person is seated in front of them. The seats have a long adjustment travel, so long leg room can be had, front or back, but not front and back, on the same side. Shoulder and head room is very good for a small car, but if you've driven one, you'd remember if it was an issue. I've driven a 2014 and 15 Malibu, and they are larger, dimensionally. However, the Cruze actually feels as large while driving. Simply, it's bigger than it looks. When we were car shopping, the Passat was one option. The Cruze, while actually smaller, felt more roomy. Of course, this is all subjective. Don't take my (or anyone's) word for it. Go drive one. Rent one for a weekend.
