So not only does the crappy Corolla routinely pounce on the Focus in sales, now the Cruze is giving to us good? Good gravy.
It is the 'lease deal' that is being advertised that may have lead to this. Even my wife asked why I wasn't going to look at a Cruz when they are "only $125/month." That is the 'come in and check us out' advertising. One of my coworkers actually did go in and drive one and ran the numbers; that is the base model without any options (none are available), 24 months lease, 10k miles/year, with $1400 or so down at signing. He was looking at $190/month with what they had and the 15k/year miles he needed, which is still cheap for a new car, and THAT may be the reason the Cruz is moving right now...money taped on the hood.
