Hi Everyone!
This is my first post on Cruze Talk I have been a long time viewer of this site but never joined. Getting my new cruze is what finally made me decide to join. We are a 2 Cruze family and when my dad bought his back in 2011 when they first came out I knew I would eventually want one. My dad uses his as a commuter car as he drives roughly 37,000 miles per year. With all of the miles he has on it, it has not given him any problems.
When had a 2009 Impala 2LT that I really liked but it was getting up there in miles and finally decided to get something different. I knew I wanted to stick with Chevrolet. All of our Chevrolets have been very good to us. I test drove a 2014 Malibu 1LT Black Granite, the dealer let me take it home for a day to see if I would like it. And I did, it rode nice, and had a nice interior. But the auto stop/start was a huge turn off for me. I had this feeling that down the road it will be nothing but a big headache. I realize thats the future but I just want to wait until its more common and refined. And coming from my Impala that had heated leather and a sunroof I knew I would miss that in the malibu. I just wasn't completely sold on it I liked it but If I'm going to be paying for something for the next 4 years I want it to be something that I 100% love. So without even test driving it I told the dealer I wanted a Cruze LTZ. I knew the basics of how it drove from my dads cruze. They did a dealer trade for a Black LTZ that was about 65 miles away and picked it up 2 days later. So far I am absolutely loving it! Drives a lot different than my dads since his is a LS model with the 1.8 and mine has the turbo. Love all the toys it has, favorite feature would be the my link and the keyless access. If I could go back I would have added the enhanced safety package but I will make do just fine without it. I did not want the nav system either since I plan to have on star active and my phone has unlimited data.

My accessories I have added so far are Husky floor liners, and 35% window tint (yes it is illegal-technically), and mudguards from auto zone as you can't get factory ones with the RS Package.
Look forward to your comments! and to CruzeTalk!

Welcome to CT! Nice LTZ!
Can the stop/start be turned off? I was riding in a BMW X1 my sister bought and at times the vehicle jerked noticably. That would drive me nuts! Eventually that garbage will be in every vehicle and I dread it
Welcome, I have a LT Cruze Black Granite and would gladly trade you my LT rims for the LTZ rims :signlol:

+1. :th_dblthumb2: Though the 2LT rims aren't bad, I'd still like the LTZ's 18s.

The newer style 2LT wheels aren't that bad looking. I also prefer the LTZ wheels but don't want to get rid of the Eco wheels just yet.
