Need a trouble free car. Should I buy a Cruze? Seems like there's lots of issues??

My last 2 cars have been Toyota Corollas. not fancy, BUT, each one has gone a quarter of a million miles with ZERO problems & NEVER had to go back to the car dealer for repairs. just normal maintenance over the years.

My job gives me extremely little free time. Having a car that breaks down, especially a brand new on after plunking down a considerable amount of money, and having to miss work to sit in a car dealer for repairs is not an option for me. I can't do it.

I really like the looks of the Chevy Cruze. BUT, you folks seem to have a ton of problems with it. A brand new car stinking of engine coolant? coolant on the windshield? etc, etc, etc. I don't have that now with my 12 year old corolla. I'm not going to put up with that with a new car.

Question for you folks: Just how reliable has your Cruze been? How long have you had it & how many times have you had to bring it back to the car dealer for repairs? Lastely, would you buy it again?

Thanks VERY MUCH in advance for any help/advice you can offer!

You really like your 12 year old corolla? If so you might as well buy another one, Toyota has not changed anything in all those years. The cars engine or transmission & MPG rating have all remained the same since the mid 1990's. Me I would have a problem buying a new car that's exactly the same as a 2-15 year old used one.

Chevy on the other hand has made huge changes with this car & some have experienced these growing pains. I would buy the cruze again because its still the best value for a small car & probably one of the safest.
