Criticism because the Cruze doesn't come as a hatchback? Because it's LIST price is a few hundred more than MOST of the competition, you should buy a used mid-sized? You guys are really reaching. Will you criticize every other car in the segment (except the Focus) for not having DSG? How about spending a little time comparing to the Mazda3, Focus, Elantra, Civic, Corolla? You know, the cars in it's class. How much more (if any) does the Cruze cost than it's competion after considering content. Is this asking too much in a car review? Sheesh.
