Hey guys, just bought a Cruze Eco 2 weeks ago. I did a lot of reading on this forum before deciding to pull the trigger on one. It was down to the Cruze Eco or the Sonic RS, so happens I found a 2013 Eco MT at a GM dealer that was in great shape with 21k miles on it and snagged it for 16,300.
I'm really impressed with the car, it's about time GM got it right with the compacts!
I've run 2 tanks through it and I've gotten 32 MPG at the pump in some fairly heavy Tampa traffic going back and forth to work. My 04 Passat diesel would only pull around 27 at the pump on the same routes.
Welcome to the forum! Try a couple of tanks of premium gas and see how peppy the car becomes. You will be impressed. Premium fuel will also give you better fuel economy, especially in the summer. The car will sense the higher octane, and run leaner and with more timing.
