Interesting Info about LSPI.

They talk about direct injection but wonder if this had any effect on the gen1 cruzes.

2017 Cruze - Piston Problems

My 2017 Chevy Cruze Premiere is in the shop now because of LSPI - all 4 pistons are being replaced, rings and gaskets. Unfortunately, since GM won't replace the motor, I will be getting rid of the vehicle. No guarantee that the motor isn't already damaged. It's a shame that driving 25 mph can cause LSPI to occur. GM called it a "design flaw", I'm calling it a waste of my money and now when I go car hunting I'll need to stay away from GM, Ford and Honda vehicles as all have been using the same downsized, boosted engines that can easily slip into LSPI.

Rob - It has 25,400 miles on it. I will think about your advice, thank you. I really love the car - but I don't want issues down the road. Getting close to retirement and I don't want repair bills. I must admit, it's a beautiful car, and it rides very well. From all I've read on LSPI, it can ruin an engine completely. Unfortunately, I'm not mechanically inclined and I'm wary on how to know if this is a patch job or if fixed.
