Got a 2011 Cruze with 88k miles (out of warranty due to age not mileage) and it just threw a P0299. Reading around it sounds like the turbo is a likely cause, but when I go to an online GM parts site it shows the turbo (p/n 55565353) is discontinued. I also see some aftermarket results (Dorman and others) showing up. What is the deal here? Is there no GM official part for this application any more? And if not, has anybody had any luck with the aftermarket ones?
My daughter drives this car and is 200 miles from home. Onstar told her "do not drive it, must be serviced within 24 hours" which is obviously a canned response, not a technical assessment. Have any of you actually had this code lead to greater problems if not remedied immediately? I really don't mind her being doing on power and I'm not about to put $2k+ into this car...
