Hi. Just purchased my 2014 Cruze from a young couple one week ago today. Base model with Ray Blue Metallic(?) paint, which looks purple when not in the sun. Has a manual transmission and only had 20739 miles when picked up. The vehicle is in showroom condition because the first owners were OCD with cleanliness.

Other than the gutless engine, which does get great gas mileage, it is a great car that rides very smooth and feels extremely solid.

The 1.8s are under powered, which is why GM dropped them in the 2nd generation. I'm not sure how the rest of the world handles the 1.6 NA engine at all in this car.

Congrats! Good that you got a manual trans. For the last seven weeks I was in a 2015 or 2016 LS auto(not sure - it was a company car). The NA 1.8 seems to be pretty smooth and rev happy. I can see where the manual version makes more sense with 1.8.
