I am from Nebraska and recently got my 2nd Cruze. My first was a 2012 RS. I LOVED it. I purchased my 2nd one about 2 months ago. 2016 premiere. I also love it. There are things I miss about my other one. The color was super easy to keep clean. It was blue ice. I loved it. My 16 is kinetic blue, way more difficult to keep clean. but overall I like the upgrades I got with this car. I ordered it with all the bells and whistles. I am still getting used to the new body style. And I miss the vents for a/c and heat that came out under the seats for more comfort for my rear seat passengers. But overall, i do think it is an upgrade.
