With the new economy turbos(like the 6speed manual Eco Cruze), I would love the ability to stay in low rpm gearing & still accelerate modestly, keeping the mpg high. However, the Chevy dealer wouldn't deal on an Eco Cruze & I got a sweet Elantra with extras that the Eco Cruze didn't have...... all for $5000 less. Elantra will pass repair shops better than Cruze, too. The Elantra is overall averaging 39mpg & the Cruze might have added only 10%.

No, had one before. Maintainence expensive when they break! Plus, usually need to use premium fuel.
