What is a good second hand family car?
I would rule out the Cruze straight away, they have too many issues with reliability with them to be considered. The Elantra and the Camry are both good cars. Your budget should allow you to buy a 2014 Elantra, but probably won’t stretch to a Camry. You might have to go for a 2012-2013 Camry.

Reliable used 4-cylinder cars?
With a limited budget like yours I would suggest to go for a car with a good reliability record. While the Mercedes-Benz is a good car you are likely to be facing an expensive repair if anything should go wrong. Consider a Mitsubishi 380 or a Toyota Camry of around 2000-2003.
Camry or Calais for reliability?
Both cars meet all of your requirements, they have 5-star safety, they're comfortable, have a large boot, and plenty of power for overtaking. Either one would be a good choice, but if I were to be making the selection it would be the Toyota for reliability and resale.
Are oil leaks and worn-out shock absorbers major repairs?
You have to anticipate that things will wear out and need replacing when the car gets to the sort of kilometres that yours has, but worn-out shocks and oil leaks are not what I would call major repairs. If the car were in good overall order I would have the work done. To keep driving it until it dies is not a great idea, and could be dangerous to you and other road users.
