hi folks,i have posted this message here incase anybody out there has been thinking about purchasing either of these cars.recently,i narrowed down my car purchase to these 2 vehicles.2012 hyundai elantra gls base model with auto and a 2012 chevy cruze LS model with connectivity package.msrp for the elantra was $18,860.00..and the msrp for the cruze LS was $18,865.00...however,the elantra has the better warranty,more power,standard cruise control and 4-wheel disk brakes..all of these things were missing in the cruze for almost the same comparison elantra won out and it totally out performs the cruze and looks better doing it as well......

    Did you negotiate at all on the Cruze? Chevy dealers in my area are offering big discounts on the LS. I saw LS automatics advertised for under $16,000 the other day, and that was before any negotiating. At that kind of price, the Cruze looks a little better, but still lacks key equipment like cruise--and power mirrors too, right? Elantra has a lot more rear seat leg room also.
  • I own a 2011 Elantra Limited. No problems not even a squeek. With a sunroof and warm leather seats it feels luxurious to me. My average mpg
    10 miles city each way to work is only 22-24. Must be a whole lot of idling at traffic lights. This week spring break with no traffic I averaged 30 mpg on my daily commute. And just for kicks on the highway the other day, I reset the trip computer at the top of a 2 mile hill and hit 100 mpg :o)

    My sister bought a 2011 Chevy Cruze the same week. She's had to take her Cruze in for 3 recalls and one other problem the first year. Sorry I dont remember what the problem was. Price-wise hers was a bigger bargain.
  • Is this deal good?
    I am trying to get a Chevy Cruze (basic) and the dealer gave me this deal
    36 month lease, 10K miles per year (since I rarely break 8K)
    $5750 check to me
    I am trading my '04 MDX with a value of about 9000 in KBB.
    How does this deal sound? they added in tinted windows and remote start

  • I had a 2012 Cruze which was traded for a 2013 Elantra GT leftover. I got a good deal on the GT but lost $10,000 in that short period of time. Yes, that's $10k depreciation between 2012 and 2014! To top it off, mine was a loaded LTZ model! Checked the Cruze's trade value before I went looking for a new car so I know that I got a fair trade-in allowance. So don't expect much if you get the Cruze! By the way, I had a 1.4 turbo. Unless you use the turbo to get up to speed or in passing, the engine's regular power is pitiful.
