Hey guys, my name is Jonathan and i've got 23 years old. I live near of Québec city. For the past 5 years, i've been riding my chevy cavalier Z-Type 2004 and I was in love with it. Unfortunelaty, it has been Wrecked in an accident (sunfire owner hit me on the drivers side)...

So I wanted to give GM a chance again with the cruze, so I bought a used Cruze 2013 2LT RS with the red hot color, leather and heated seats, 6 speed manual. I've got it since last weeks already and i've done already 600km on it, oups excuse me 375 miles on it :).

By the way, i'm a MPG freak, so i love to get low fuel consumption (i was getting often high 30's with the cavy, which is awesome for this motor). I will probably make a post to get more hint to get better MPG. I would have liked a ECO M6 for the impressive 40+ mpg, but the RS package wins on me lol! For the moment, i've got 38 MPG for the first tank on it and I don't know the perfect shift point yet (For the moment, I trust the shift light which looks not bad!)

Here is now some picture of my cruze on the delivery day (october 14th 2014)

Hi Jonathan - welcome to CruzeTalk and I'm glad to see we got your account working.

Don't trust the shift light. You can shift a few hundred RPM sooner and do better. Take a look in our Fuel Economy area for tips on improving your fuel economy.

Thank you a lot I appreciate it,

When i'm at 3rd, 4th or 5th gear , the shift light comes on at about 1500-1600 rpm when i go easy with the throttle, is it dangerous to lugging the engine if I shift at 1300-1400???

Have a nice night!
