    newbie here, wanted help from some of you veterans please

    just bought new 2012 eco boost, loving the gas mileage but having 2nd thoughts on not getting leather and nav which i love, some people have told me aftermarket nav(which i planned on getting) may or may not void regular and extended warranty, dealer said i could maybe trade it and possibly upgrade, not sure if you can get eco with leather or mainly nav, not really sure of the difference in eco compared to regular 1.4, car was kind of an impulse by, i was almost going to get the new fusion but traded in a g35 and just like driving smaller cars, any thoughts would be really appreciated?

    Get a reputable upholsterynsh to put leather onto your existing seats; get an aftermarket (Garmin, Tom Tom, etc) unit and save tons of money, and functionally have what you want/need.

    Agreed, get a car interior shop to do the leather. An aftermarket GPS that simply sits on the dash won't void the warranty one bit. A touchscreen that will replace the stock radio won't either. Be careful upgrading the stock radio, as there are a lot of awful installers out there who hack up wiring. With all the data buses running all over the car, I'd want somebody experienced doing the install, or do it myself.

    Learn from the mistakes of others, so when you err it can be in new and interesting ways.

    i bought and tried out the garmin, thing was 400 but i dont want to worry about getting broken into and stolen so will prob return and use my phone for now, i can look into aftermarket leather, does the leather in the cruze have a bad rep or something, man i already miss the g35 but i sure like the new gas mileage)
