I looked at a Cruze and drove one for a couple of days, liked it, but didn't like the idea of paying $995 for an auto trans plus a couple $K more to get it with the same options as a base Honda Civic. The best the Chevy dealer would do is $21K for an Eco with auto and the Honda dealer dropped $2K off sticker dropping it to $17,500, plus 0.9% financing. Honda averages 34 mpg city and 42-43 hwy, about the same as the Cruze.
I liked the cars about the same and was ready to get the Cruze (before I discoverd the discount was gone)but I'm not willing to put an extra $3,500 in the pockets of Gov't Motors.
Smae story for me, only Traverse versu Pilot. Who in the world would pay more fr a GM product than Honda, OMG, read consumer report reliability ratings and which one gets better marks and likely better resale value? hmmmmm
