This is just a follow up to my few other threads about looking for cars. I don't know exactly how it happened. I went to the dealer looking for the 2006 Grand Prix GT (It was just sold this morning) and somehow I took home a 2012 Chevy Cruze 2LT 1.4 turbo. It's got about 50k on the odometer.

They tried to stick me in a 2008 Caravan, 2010 Taurus and a Ford Flex, but the Cruze had the lowest mileage and was the nicest, they just took it in the same day on a trade in towards a new F150. I had to wait while they cleaned it up and they even gave me a full tank of gas.






Engine bay will need a cleaning but I'll share the pictures.

Looks nice! A heck of a lot better than the Taurus or Galant!

Looks great! Those are great for tall people, for the front seats. I test drove one once and the front seats went realllly far back, i usually have seats scooted all the way back in cars but not the one I test drove.

I dunno.... the newer model Taurii (less than 10 years old) are really nicely made cars.
