I commute 200 mile a day, and have an 03 Jetta TDI, and have had pretty good luck with it. Ran synthetic oil in it, changed every 8 to 10k and got 47mpg with 380,000 miles on it. I changed my timing belt every 100k, but the last one only lasted 80k. When they break, it wrecks the motor (still had original pump, injectors and turbo)
Don't know much about the Cruz, other than you have to get it with an automatic

How much are parts for these? Like breake parts, normal wear and tear stuff compared to other cars. How.much of a pain is the timing belt?

Timing belt is a bit of a pain because there is an engine mount in the middle of it so the engine must be supported and unbolted from that mount. Some special tools are needed to get the timing right and all the idlers and water pump should be done at then same time. Fortunately it's only every 100k miles.
