    No. More. Cruze.

    So I did a little something today:





    Traded the Cruze in today! Drove a brand new Elantra Value Edition with 14 miles off the showroom floor: sunroof, dual zone climate, Apple Carplay, push button start, LED's, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, backup camera, auto dimming mirror, heated front seats, and the 2.0L NATURALLY ASPIRATED engine.

    I LOVE this car. LOVE it. Drove over an hour for this thing to get a killer price and it had killer rebates, 5k off MSRP.

    On my drive home, I couldn't believe my eyes when I pulled into my driveway, 44.7 MPG.

    Guess I'm the new NickD?

    Congrats on the new purchase. Hyundai isn't known for it as much as the domestic brands, but they offer a lot of great incentives. I regularly drive a lot of compact rentals when traveling for work and even the base Elantra has improved greatly over the last couple generations.

    Hyundai has really improved the Elantra and Hyundai quality seems much better than G.M. I've spent the last hour online looking at this Kona but I just can't drive 120 miles (240 R/T) for Service & Warranty work anymore, I'm too old, its too hot...

    I drove a Hyundai Sonata for 10 years before buying my Cruze. It was a good car.

    Boo! Hiss! There lurks a spy among us!


    All joking aside, I'm glad you like your new ride and I hope it does well for you, Sparkman.

    Congrat.u.lations. Well, that’s certainly ONE way to eliminate the gas stench, extreme but effective.

    Time to close-out @sparkman ‘s Build thread and enjoy the new Hyundai.

    May you have many trouble-free miles ahead and hope to keep seein’ you around CT.

    Haha, yep! I was done with that thing. Great car, just not dependable.

    Thanks! I'll still be around. I haven't been around to much lately due to work and work, and work, and work, and did I say work?

    I don't want to turn this into a GM bashing thread, but I will agree. I honestly looked at the new Cruze and I just couldn't deal with the stop start and a stupid turbo again, not to mention I get a slew of features with the Hyundai.

    Hopefully it'll hold up! Those Konas are really nice!

    I can't blame you for the change. My Cruze-s made me a great mechanic but I'm not sure if this is what I really wanted )
