Gasp! A Cruze!

I've seen lots of reviewers give these a pretty solid rating, but then say they suck at handling. That's really not the point of a compact car, is it?

I have a buddy who swears by it. Drives me nuts, the Suburban has a predicted reliability of terrible, and we have yet to see any come in. Lmao

Yet the Cruze has a excellent reliability rating considering its first year with the new design..

and yet were dealing with water leaks, cracked pistons, oil pans leaking, etc. lol

Lmao. Mine handles pretty well. Those reviews are mostly for the LT, and I'd have to agree - they ride very well, but it's mushy in the turns. The little 18" sidewalls and Z link help it out a lot. The steering is completely and totally numb, though.

I agree with their decision to make the Miata the best sports car. :D However the Ridgeline should not be listed as best truck, it's not even a truck at all, it's more like a Ute or an ugly, tall el-camino.

Joke all ya want hahaha, they sell like hotcakes here. Don't know where people get the money either.

Three months ago we had a 22 year old kid come in and pay cash for a 2017 Tahoe Premier.
