History
When my Corolla died on the highway and nearly took me with it, I hit up a family friend who works as a service director at a nearby dealership and told him I was in the market for a cheap used car, and to let me know if he has any stickshift cars for sale. That was my only stipulation, if I'm going into debt for a car, I want 3 pedals again.

"Why, yes we do, a nice little Cruze one of my techs just traded in! I'll let the boss know you're interested."

A few hours later, I was driving away from the dealership in my new (to me) 2013 Cruze.

Wait, no I wasn't. It had fallen victim to the (apparently) common starter voltage issue sometime between the test drive and the drive-off and the clunking noise it spewed forth upon starting was truly horrific. "I'll fix it, don't worry," he told me as he tossed me the keys to a Terrain loaner. "You'll have it tomorrow."

I did, and it's been bulletproof ever since, save for the South Florida sun killing a battery on Friday the 13th, and a mysterious tire blowout on my way to work one morning. It's currently living an active lifestyle, driving for Lyft on weekends and shuttling me back and forth from work during the week. I'm on track to do over 20k this year, and it has been a reliable and solid vehicle I haven't regretted purchasing. I just wish it weren't so darn slow.
