Those who are in the market for a brand new vehicle may want to look towards the 2011 Chevrolet Cruze, as MSN Autos recently reviewed the model, calling it the "best small car Chevrolet has ever produced."
This is a particularly attractive notion for those with bad credit auto loans, as a car's level of dependability is a significant factor in managing finances. If you buy a lemon, you are going to be spending a lot more money that you don't have on repairs and maintenance. Thus, this is why the compact car is a good choice.
The news source reports that the Cruze is easy to maneuver and the Eco edition provides a great fuel efficiency at 40 highway miles per gallon, meaning less money spent at the pump. It is equipped with a 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine and six-speed manual or automatic transmission, which produces 138 hp and 148 lb-ft torque.
While it may be costly for a compact vehicle – the Cruze begins at $16,295 – it may be well worth it in the end if it is dependable and needs little maintenance. MSN Autos gives the car a 9.0/10.0 rating.
