The 2012 Che Land vehicle Vehicle Car Mid-size car Sedan vrolet Cruze LTZ with Rally Sport Equipment didn't get the use anticipated. Car is in semi-heated attached garage and is highly finessed with Maquirers products inside and out. The oil was changed from conventional to Dexos 2 (Mobil One with syn tec) full synthetic at the first oil change back in 2012 by owner. The oil/filter has been changed many times by owner. The body is no hit and has never been in salty conditions.
The only warranty item under GM New car warranty is the water pump and new DEX cool.
Car in this condition and low mileage would never be seen on used car lot.
Tire big wheels and tires have been rotated by owner twice.
This was GM special car order, not to be confused with central office production order (COPO)
Have five cars and need to sell some.
Due to engine horse power variation, this 2012 LTZ&RS Turbo out performs my wives 2014 Cruze LT&RS Turbo. Both cars have same engine L4 Turbo 138SAE HP

Subscribed to follow this one, I hope the original poster get's his price, but I don't think a 6 year old car can fetch this price with the incentives on a new one. Maybe I'm wrong. A 2012 was available on dealer lots as early as August September 2011. I would suggest putting your build date in your ad. The month and year can be found on the inner drivers door. But then you know that if your talking RPO codes.

The only difference between a 2012 and 2014 LTZ vs. LT is the size of the tires. Pretty sure both have the RPO code (MH8, I believe I don't have a book handy..) Bigger tires on the LTZ probably makes it feel faster. Both have exactly the same 138 HP engine. The engine RPO code differences between 2012 and 2014 have to do with small differences such as MAP sensors, and the change from a 6 grooved pulley on the crankshaft to a 5 grooved pulley. All pretty minor stuff.

What I'm saying to potential readers, is don't be misinformed. In terms of automatic transmissions and 1.4L turbos, they ware nearly all the same from 2011-2016 GEN1. Tires were different. If we're discussing manual transmissions, yes there were differences in the gear spread in the 6 speed transmissions. Very small, but they were present.

Agreed. I'm sure there are people like myself who still prefer the look of the first gen over the second, but I'm not sure if they're willing to pay a premium price for that.

I held out for a premium price on my 62k mile 2012 LTZ, and it was a struggle. Honestly no one really looked at it, the price seemed to turn them away without even inquiring. I think the buyers thought the price was fair for the condition of the car, as it presented even better than pictures in person.

Dealers go By Black Book (yes, NO KBB!). Here is how he stays. The top lines is the price you would pay if you get this car from the dealer. The bottom price is what what you would get if you sell it by your won... A 2012 is a 2012 regardless what you put on it or how many miles the car has.. Very rare people will appreciate otherwise. I forgot to add the sunroof = +$500.

I feel the same way, 2nd gen looks like a fish to me, and to me the latest gen looks like a hyundai sonata from the back...but a 1st gen cruze out of warranty, that you know will need a PCV fix and trans sooner or later is a hard buy.

:unsure:Then.. the option left is... the new Honda Accord 2.0 with MT available.:giggle: And it looks sharp! The price is just a little high. I dislike too the new look of Cruze - Gen 2!

Its Funny, I ordered the same exact 2012 LTZ RS, bright red every conceivable option. I even have lighted door sills that say Chevrolet under the driver and passenger doors. Same black leather, Sun/moon roof, heated seats 18" wheels all of the infotainment that 2014corvette mentioned. Love the car. I have 104,000 miles. Just turned yesterday on the way home. It was her car for 89,000 then she bought a SS Camaro.
I drive a 2500hd Duramax 4X4, so we decided its to my best interest to commute in the Cruze now. Its a great car and looks good. Definitely not the fastest car ive ever driven but easy driving all the same.

Normally that would be a scary thought, but from the looks of your signature, she probably knows a thing or two about cars!

We've had 2 members score Brand New 2017's for less than $14,000 with the G.M. Employee Discount for everyone and Manufacturer cash offered on the CRUZE. $15.5K on a 2012 is funny!
Sup @Eddy Cruze

At least this one hasn’t met the underside of a semi truck like your old car did!
