    Do what I did - order a 2014 Jeep GC SRT. 470HP, AWD.

    Oh wait, you wanted BETTER than 18mpg. Oops.

    Glad I saw this thread. I have come into a similar situation. I've been recently driving my V sedan 70ish miles everyday and the car is taking a beating. Highway speeds, stupid drivers, trucks and flying debris, parking on busy streets...some asshat smacked into the rear quarter of my car while parked and its now in the shop!

    I'm looking at a Volt as a daily commuter. But I dunno, I like power too much.

    I just don't want to beat the V up anymore.

    (fortunately I have a regular CTS as a loaner and I am enjoying beating it up!)

    That is so irritating. Did the person that hit your V stop and provide contact information, or was this a hit and run?

    I am in the same boat.....I have a new 75 mile round trip each day, and the fueling up twice a week is adding up. I get around 17 mpg, which is about 95% highway and little traffic. The other annoying thing is the small gas tank size in our cars.

    My solution I'm currently considering: 2012 E63 AMG. The new twin turbo motors get 24mpg highway, and quicker than the previous 2010 n/a motors. The new E63's are monsters and right on par with the CTS-V, if not quicker.

    Going to have to hang on to the V for a while, since I'm closing on a house in July, and have to get my current house sold. Besides, I only have 13K miles on the Vagon, and plenty left on the CPO warranty.

    where have you been? They have not made the Cobalt for a couple years. The Cruze replaced it awhile ago.

The old cobalt and Saturn are supercharged but the new cobalt is a turbo D.I. and has much more output. I average 25 city and 31 hwy, the new ones might be different. They're in the mid-teens for prices. Good luck! Btw I do about 2500 miles per month for work commuting so the V only sees a small fraction of that.

    check out the new Cruze turbodiesel coming this next year....realworld 46mpg highway with it. Great car. Keep the wagon.

    From an Evo9 to V10 M5 to V8 M3 the main issue was unnecessary wear and tear - as noted above - going to shopping venues and such. Most on this forum have spent $50-$70K on V purchases so fuel costs are secondary issues for most. As automotive enthusiasts the desire for less than ordinary rides trump 'financials'. There is no easy out here. Maybe add a Jetta wagon as many are suggesting or if awd is needed perhaps Subaru STi wagon deserves mention - though smaller than CTS.

    WRX STi, 5 door hatch. We had a 2010. Great car, snow friendly, good space and utility and a blast to drive.

    To the poster that was talking about the 2012 E63 AMG, might want to wait until the 2014 comes out, it will be AWD and 0 to 60 in 3.4 seconds, quite the car.

    Please tell me your considering the Benz because it's a nice car, and not because of this brain fart..

    Let me get you in on a little secret regardless;

    EPA testing is a 40 year old rigged joke.

    hey..well he didn't say it needed to be a new car. besides, I think the cruise is much, much uglier than the cobalt I was talking about.
