As the title reads I bought a 2012 Cruze 1Lt yesterday. Everything was going fine. I drive it home and go in to eat lunch and after that I come back out to discover a pool of oil under the car. WTF!!!! I say! I popped the hood to discover an oil leak somewhere on the L/H side of the motor. Can't really tell where it's coming from though because of the belly pan. Needless to say I called the dealer and had it towed. This is very aggravating for me. I am 25 yrs. old and saved enough money to buy my very first brand new car and as soon as I get it home this is what I get???? Very Frustrated!!!! Anyways if you guys can give me any input on this I would greatly appreciate it! Thanks Again!

Thanks guys. It's just frustrating!!! I read a few posting about the 2011 Cruze had crankshaft seal issues. Apparently they put them in backwards at the factory. They put me in a 2012 sonic. It's an alright car but it's not a cruze.

I'm heading to the dealer in the morning once I get off work. I'm basically going to tell them that I want another car and that I don't feel comfortable driving a car that had a major problem within the first 30 miles and that IDK what else could go wrong with the car. What do you guys think? Is this too much to ask for?

Alright so I got off work this morning and went to bed. The dealer called me at 10:30a.m. I thought wow that was fast and that it was something easy to fix. Boy was I wrong!!! The service manager told me that I had a crack in the engine block! WHAT!!!!! This car has 30 miles on it!!!! He told me it would be days before a new engine would be installed. I said NO and that I would be at the dealer in 30 minutes! My salesman called me when I was 2 min. away from the dealer. I simply told him that we would talk when I got their. When I stepped into his office I was prepared to go off!!! To my surprise I didn't have to say a word or get mad. I told him their was one other cruze on the lot that was the equivalent to the one I just bought. He went and found the keys and we did the normal test drive (car had 4 miles on it). We came back and parked and he asked if everything was to my liking. I said yes but I want a fine tooth comb ran thru this car before I drive it off the lot. He took it back and had it washed, gassed up and checked out. SO in the end I ended up getting the exact same car no questions asked. I was prepared for the worst. A few of you said to see about a model upgrade but I remembered I chose this one for a reason: it had everything I wanted and nothing I didn't. WHAT A DAY! At least I can finally sleep tonight!

Well so far so good everyone. The car has made it 60 miles now with no blown motor. I really believe that it was a freak accident with the engine manufacturer. It just sucks that it had to be me. I am very happy with the car as of right now.

I just checked back on the dealers website that I bought the first car from and they re posted the one with the cracked engine block. I can't believe this!!! VIN #: 1G1PF5SC8C7287481 They have it listed for the same price. This should not be allowed!!!!

If you were looking to buy a new car and you saw this one that had 33 miles on it with a new engine in it wouldn't you question what went wrong with it? They have it listed for the same exact price I paid for it as well. Personally I would not want it.
