Im considering trading my 12 Cruze LS in on a 16 Limited 1LT. Besides the obvious the 16 is newer and less miles. What does everyone think about the 16? Is the 1.4 turbo a good motor? The 16 have any common problems i should watch for? Is the 1.4l so much better than 1.8l? ive heard the 1.4 talked up so much. Basicly can i get some input on the swap? I think its will be a good trade up but what do you all think? Btw this 16 has 5108 miles on it and it was used as a courtesy car for my dealer. Mine has 89k. Also i hear that the 1.4 has alot more options for getting more power out of it vs. The 1.8l true?? Thank you all in advance for the input!!

Most of the bugs were worked out with the 1.4L engine for the 15-16 model year (at least, so far). However, they still have a few known weaknesses.

They are certainly more torquey than the 1.8, and do get better gas mileage.

If you're looking around, I would go drive it and see if you like it, and then drive one of the Gen2 1.4's (totally new engine). We'll leave the decision up to you.
