    I'm sure you miss MPG and 87 octane at least. I miss 93 but not the prices...

In comparison to my Honda Civic, the Cruze is just so much better in little ways that make a big difference. It's quieter on the highway and feels more solid. It has a great HVAC system (save for the defroster pattern). In the Honda, I can never get the heat where I want it and it's already developing quality issues.
    What issues did you have with heat? You try the Amsoil Dominator? As for me and the Accord HVAC, I have a small window of nothing between too cold and too hot. from 77 to 84 is about the exact same. Drop to 76 and start freezing or up to 85 and it's going to dry out your eyes.

    I never drove the Civic but the Accord feels like a slightly cheaper and stiffer riding CTS. With the V6 Touring brakes it stops fairly well. I'm sure if I found lighter 19's or 18's it would be a bit quicker off the line. The rubber alone is 27 lbs per corner. Wind noise is slightly there but not anywhere near Subaru frameless windows wind noise. It's like the Chevy Cruze wind noise if you have a strong cross wind. My only physical issues is trying to aim the fogs up to a useable level and putting cardboard over the trunk vet to prevent it from sound like a trapped bird. I'll post the YT when I get home of that. Radio quality kinda is meh but I'm adding the tweeters from the upper trim s it will help out some. I'm convinced I might buy it out the lease but still have the safety of the lease to walk away if need be.

    I never ran 87 octane . Always 89 or better. I am feeling better about this comute I have with the Mustang even with the added cost of 93 octane.

    Only thing I really miss from your list is MPG (But I enjoy the extra power more I think)...Push button start, Fusion fuel door is spring loaded just like Cruze was, doors close just fine, TPMS shows all tires, got used to the shift knob.

    What about the red and black seat and dash contrast? I didn't take that good of a look inside your car that day.

    it takes FOREVER to get any heat, compared to my CTD. Also, when i do have heat, it seems uneven. One of my feet will be cold and the other hot. In the Cruze, it's always quick and very even heat.

    I'm still on the factory fill.

    One thing I won't miss is the turbo lag. The "Oh dear God, there's a truck coming! MOVE!!" kind of lag.

    Unless you were down around 1500 rpm, that's the car fighting off knock.

    The Econ button also messes with the HVAC settings to make it econ in that way as well. I forgot to mention that as well.

    It was cool, but I prefer the leather in the Fusion better. The seats are also more comfortable.


    I did think of something else I miss besides the MPG...The Onstar app! It was nice to be able to lock/unlock or remote start the car from my phone. Ford only has that on select (higher end) models.
