If you're willing to look around and dig deeper, you can find leftover brand new 2014 and 2015 Cruze Diesels for a lot less than $24,100 ... Like this one: http://www.autotrader.com/cars-for-...rd=0&searchRadius=0&listingId=381379096&Log=0 Guess it just depends on what you're willing to have/not have based on how the vehicles were ordered (with what options) to sit on the dealer's showroom floor. I'm sure you could talk that dealer down even more, since 2017 models will start selling in 6-7 months ... and we're supposed to be seeing the new Diesel in the 2017 Cruze as well. You can either pull the trigger now and get a killer deal on a New 2014 that's technically 3 years old ... or wait for the improved economy of the 2017 (and rumored availability of a manual transmission). The dealer has been carrying the cost of that 2014 (or 2015 if you find one) for way too long and they'll most likely entertain almost any offer over $21,500 depending upon the original MSRP ... especially if you get pre-approved and have a check in hand from your financial institution of choice. That's how I got my wife's Cadillac price dropped by nearly $4,500 from their "lowest advertised price" listed on the internet.
