    Default New addition to the family!

    I didn't want to tell anybody until it was final with the bank but I just received a call and was told that I am officially the owner of a 2012 Chevy Cruze! It will be nice to have something that gets good gas mileage for once, haha!

    I am going on vacation this week and taking my "baby" so the Cruze will have to just sit and wait until I get home!

    It's a LT RS with the ecotec engine. I wanted the manuel transmission but they had none with the interior I wanted so I opted for the automatic, I sit in traffic anyways so it doesn't matter. It was between this and the Camaro but the family thought that it had to many blind spots so we settled. I bought wanted the RS to get as much "sportiness" out of it as possible!

    Here's a pic of me and the Cruze last night when I drove it off the lot.

    Congrats, I've started to like the cruze myself. Maybe when and if my wife wants to trade in her Envoy we will look at them, I kinda miss my 08 altima for the gas mileage, 25 around town and 33 highway
