The article mentions the 1.5T in a Cruze, but the Cruze doesn't get the 1.5. As far as I know it's only used in the Malibu.

Also that sucks. Hope they're able to figure that out.

You'll run into the same problem with any youtube video titled " X brand of car BLEW it's engine!!"

This is old news. They have since been recalled. An ECU update and stipulation to use full synthetic Dexos 1 oil addresses the issue of low speed preignition in these engines. Basically they detuned the low end torque a little bit and slightly enriched the fuel mix.

Haven't heard of any issues with them since. The engine is also used in the new Equinox in a slightly higher state of tune than the Malibu (and frustrating transmission programming).
