So I drove a 2016 Cruze home the other day while my son has my car and I give my two cents worth. The 2016 I am driving has leather seats, which look nice but it slides my lunchbox around when I'm turning. The climate temperature in the cab seems to blow cold when set at 72 degrees, but too hot on 73 degrees. I did notice it doesn't have the extra panel that slides out on the drivers side visor like my 2012. The side traffic alert on the exterior mirrors? MEH, I'll still look anyways...Overall, still nice car, but not much improvement over my 2012. Anyone else??

Does the visor slide on the post? I know a lot of cars have transitioned to that lately over the slide out panel...

My 2012 ECO MT driver sun visor is a slide post design. The passenger visor doesn't slide.

Yes, it does slide on the post (driver side visor only). My 2012 6M has an extra piece of plastic that slides out from the middle of the visor, but I don't think the visor slides on the post (Guess I'll have to check it when I get it back from the kid.)

Had a 15 as a rental. I don't like the 1LT without Z Link in it. More bouncy ride. I'd forgotten how very quiet the FR710s are when new, though.

Motor was more responsive, even running on regular, but it sounds kinda sick plodding along with the automatic. That, and the automatic is terrible at deciding what gear it should be in.

My rental had a sunroof and MyLink. That part was pretty cool.

The plastic instead of leather wrapped steering wheel feels...bad. I didn't like the new grilles at first, but they and the DRL strips have grown on me a lot.

You apologize to my car right now, you hurt it's feelings, you monster! The bounce is part of the fun.

#sorrynotsorry. You can take consolation that it's quieter over bumpy roads at low speeds?
It's actually better without the weight and the aerodynamic drag, any good racing driver will tell you more drag and more weight is a bad thing... ;)

Note: The blind spot assist is really only useful in a suburban or similar long vehicle with many pillars, the Cruze is small enough that it's really not that useful.

I gather this is the 2016 Cruze Limited, which is the old model they're continuing to build for fleet contracts? I'm guessing this isn't about the all-new 2016 Cruze?

A good body shop could probably "surgically" remove them for you :grin:
