Just purchased a 2016 Cruze LT with less than 9K miles on it. Got a pretty good deal on it and it has lots of bells and whistles. Some of which seem nice but I probably don't need: Sun roof, heated seats, enhanced displays and so on. Replaced my 2007 Corolla S after another car smashed into the rear end of my Corolla while I was stopped in traffic. The Corolla was totaled but insurance gave me a good buy out on it and I decided to buy a newer car. Started looking at Toyotas but got into a Chevy Cruze rental while waiting for the insurance company and the body shop to decide what to do. Liked the Cruze and found one that seems nice with low miles. Been reading the manual, checking on line and exploring the different functions that the car has. 


Retired now but my former career was as an automotive mechanic and then the owner of a small automotive repair shop that specialized in repair and rebuilding of automatic transmissions. Did not get too deep into the electronics before I retired but I have the basic knowledge of how that stuff works. I have dabbled in computers for a long time and I can usually figure out most mechanical, electrical and electronic puzzles. Though it sometimes takes me a while and I sometimes need some help or direction from online sources or other people that I know in the auto repair business. As I get older I don't want to work on my own car as much as I did when I was younger though. 


I also have a few hobbies and other things that keep me pretty busy for a "retired guy". Another reason to take my car to the shop if I can't figure something out right away or get frustrated with a problem. Hopefully my 2016 Cruze LT won't need too much for some time and I can just enjoy driving it, getting the oil changed, do the regular maintenance and fill it with gas as needed. 


Hope to be able to find out more about my Cruze from this forum and maybe make a few online friends.
