History
Leased in early January, 2012. Six speed auto is a piece of crap. Took it back at 380 miles and they replaced the valve body after telling me the bands were too tight (sounds so yesterday) and the clutch pack needed replacement. Don't think I got a wall job because I see wrench marks on some of the nuts on the transmission. Still shifts reluctantly from 2nd to 3rd until thoroughly warmed up. 880 miles on it now. Been on the phone with Chevy and have asked to swap it for a six speed manual Cruze LS and they can keep the $995 option price for the automatic trans. They actually said they would get back to me on that. I think its a software problem within the trans computer on the bus. 28 mpg overall so far. Mix of highway and local roads with no urban driving yet. So much for the ads of "up to 42 mpg."

Modifications

Drivetrain
Lurks a normally aspirated Opel engine with four valves per cylinder sitting under twin overhead cams that move around some to vary the valve timing.

Also under there is a domestic sourced (I believe) six speed auto trans. See above. Sure wish it was an Aisin like in my 2008 Mercury Milan and both of the Maximas that are now gone from the stable.
Audio
Me singing along with the local oldies FM radio station.
Wheel and Tire
Steel wheels with plastic covers that make it look like it is sporting alloy wheels, until you get up close.
