if a mazda were in the pic, heck yea get one of them but yea abit out of the range unless going for a used. I have yet to try a diesel cruze but I am glad they put it in there. I am sure I would go for one of them, that torque!
I was thinking about getting one when I heard they were coming, for the mileage because I had thought I would be doing many trips to NY but somehow I just decided something a little bigger was needed. If a deal ever pops on I might be willing to downgrade to one but that is doubtful, not for the downgrade but a good deal
