Now that I’ve rediscovered the storification process (yes I made that up), I figured I’d share it now. Please feel free to post any... Read more »

So whadahyawannaknow? 2011 Chevrolet Cruze Eco

I recently drove the 2011 Chevrolet Cruze Eco model with the 6-speed manual transmission.

Cruze, the Eco model specifically, is quickly becoming Chevrolet’s shining star with an estimated 42 mpg on the highway and attractive... Read more »
