Is that 3.72 FDR across the board, or only for certain transmissions?

Ahh, that 3.72 FDR is only for the 1.8 automatic. Thanks!

No changes to any of the other transmissions/gearboxes aside from hopefully some programming tweaks on the 6T40.

Sill no spare tire for the ECO MT. Must be someone in GM marketing from Boston - anyplace west of the Hudson is labeled "Here there be dragons". They put out the best inexpensive open road car in America and won't give you the ability to recover from a pothole without waiting for hours for a tow truck.

yep to cut almost 100 lbs. from the base Cruze’s curb weight by tossing out the spare tire in favor of a patch kit for the 2013 model

GM should at least make this an optional item as it is with the ECO A/T. I can tell you from experience that it's only about 30 lbs, not 100.

The US 2013's come with the same bumpers as the 2011 - 2012 models. That hideous bumper is being produced in Korea.

I was loaned by my dealer a lt last week really nice cruze was tempted to trade for that car.
Just a thought I like not having payments to much to get sucked in .
added comforts are a driving insentive to consider when buying new.
there are a few more diffusers on the market now.styling has gotten better over the last 2 years also.
