Chevrolet Cruze review from Consumer Reports
The nicely-finished Chevy Cruze feels solid and substantial and is pleasant
to drive. But it delivers lackluster fuel economy and the backseat is
tight. Find more car reviews on our website:
Toyota Prius C review
Toyota Prius fuel-economy for less money seems like a perfect idea, but
Consumer Reports tests of the small Prius C hybrid reveal that the car's
execution falls short.
2014 Chevrolet Cruze Diesel quick take | Consumer Reports
The Chevrolet Cruze Diesel is great for highway travel, with terrific fuel
economy. But don't plan on taking a family along. The backseat is mighty
tight. Check out our free Guide to Fuel Economy for other fuel-efficient
How Far Can You Drive On One Tank of Diesel? - Chevy Cruze 2.0TD vs. VW Jetta TDI
We set out to verify these cars' lofty highway-fuel-economy ratings—42
mpg for the Jetta, 46 for the Cruze—by driving from our Ann Arbor
headquarters to the world's largest truck stop in Walcott, Iowa. After that
409-mile drive, the Jetta was still 200 miles from empty and the Cruze more
than 300, so we turned around and headed for Engineered Diesel in

What I have to say about the 2013 Focus: As you probably heard in the video
I was very impressed on the amount of detail that Ford put into such a
small car. As far as build quality goes the Focus is obviously best in
class, but that cant be said for the reliability as Fords reliability
records have been down in the past year. The Focus can get quite pricey,
but there is loads of Options such as the The Ford Park Assist and the My
Ford Touch system. The Ford is very high tech. The Focus also drives well
too, it's nimble handling is better than the Corolla and Civic with a nice
Euro flavor to it. All in all great car from Focus. Like Camerons Car

2013 Nissan Sentra vs Honda Civic vs Toyota Corolla 0-60 MPH Mashup Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2013 Nissan Sentra has been redesigned and is
all new. It now looks more like its bigger brother the Nissan Altima. Which
means that it shares the new family resemblance. It also share a growth
spurt as the new 2013 Nissan Sentra is one of the biggest cars in the
compact car class...especially when it come to leg room. But how does the
Sentra compare to the other Japanese cars that it directly competes with?
In this classic mashup review we compare the 2013 Sentra to the
best-selling Honda Civic and the Toyota Corolla the TFLcar way....by seeing
which one is faster 0-60 MPH.

2013 Cadillac XTS Review
Huge luxury without the huge price tag, XTS wows with technology
Cadillac's return to large luxury comes with an inherent gamble, that
Americans want to buy, and will continue to want to buy, large luxury
machines. With compact cars now outselling mid-size ones, there seems to be
no evidence to support this plan. Then again, perhaps the luxury segment is

2013 Chevrolet Cruze LT Review, Walkaround, Exhaust, & Test Drive
GM started an upward trend in the compact class when the Cruze replaced the
lackluster Cobalt in 2011. With clean styling, a spacious cabin, a peppy turbo engine, and competitive
fuel-efficiency the Chevrolet Cruze looked to erase any bad memories left
by its predecessors. With renewed competition from Mazda, Honda, and
Toyota, it may be time for a refresh soon.
