    So I'm heading down a road I always travel on and it's raining. I'm in the right lane and the cars in front of me start panic braking and I hit a bad spot of water.

    The Insurance Institute for Highway safety, rated the Cruze as Marginal. So what happened from 2011 the brand new Cruze to 2013 that made the Cruze so bad on safety? It's the same car for three years. They were saying it was good the first two years?

    First the good: This car is freakin' awesome. It feels just like a little BMW. It has perfect steering feel, strong brakes, great suspension movement, and nice interior accomodations w/ an extremely quiet ride. To top it off, I drove it fast over 250 miles back from the dealership, as I always...

    So my luck with this car is BAD, I have NEVER had so much poor luck in my life with this thing. I'm in the middle of a buy back and someone decided to let their shopping car attack my car a few days ago.
