Welcome and 2011 cruze LS manual was my first Cruze and first 6 speed manual. Just a little more shifting and realizing 6th gear is not reverse. Besides manuals are
getting hard to find esp for mid size cars.
The 2011 LS 6-speed-manual is awesome - very even/usable gear-spacing - smooth operation - much preferred to that for the 1.4L turbo/eco model, imho.
Engine power band is nice and linear without the incredible turbo-lag of the 1.4L turbo version.
