You're mechanic doesn't know what s/he is talking about in regards to both of these issues.I've been told by my mechanic that GM has a "hidden" warranty that covers a turbocharger failure up to 100,000 miles regardless of the year of the vehicle. I have a 2011 Cruze with 90K miles that I bought used and my mechanic said there is oil in the inlet that is a sign of imminent failure. Not sure if anyone else has heard of this warranty. Just trying to get as much info as I can before contact GM so I don't sound too much like a goof.<img src="http://www.cruzetalk.com/forum/images/smilies/ohmy.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Ohmy" class="inlineimg" /> Thanks!
Call up the service department of an dealer and ask them for the warranty coverages on your vehicle. It requires the last 8 digits of your VIN, and about 7 seconds if they have the proper webpage open already.
