Welcome to CT! Have had my Cruze for about a month, now, and am very happy with it. Had a few minor issues which the dealer has finally fixed, but none of the major mechanical ones (Antifreeze Smell) that some on here have had. Just drove a 2012 Traverse over the weekend (loaner while my car was in the shop having the minor issues corrected), and was blown away by how CHEAP the interior was compared to the Cruze. All hard, cheap, plastics on a 30K + vehicle. My Cruze has more ammenitities (except for sunroof), MUCH better interior materials, and costs MUCH less. Add in the amazing gas mileage (mine continues to increase as I get more adjusted to the car), and I can't imagine a better deal out there, all things considered. You should be very happy with your choice.
