My car is at the dealership with the check engine light on. The code I had before was the dreaded P0299 which means probably the turbo. The service adviser tells me that the car a 2011
with only 75000 miles on it and they say is past the drive train warranty. This is a known problem with 1.4 liter turbo and chevy won't back it C'MON MAN

Welcome Aboard!:welcome:

I think the B2B is 36,000 and the DT is 50,000, but I am not the expert here.

Try searching for P0299 in the search bar - many threads pop up.

Don't forget to introduce yourself and your Cruze here.

Heard from dealer 2400 dollars for new turbo charger and 2 replacement hoses. Chevy willing to help out a little bit but 2000 dollars for new turbo charger on a car that has 75,000 miles. There's a known issues for bad turbo chargers and Chevy is doing nothing about it.

55565353 Turbocharger[SUP]1[/SUP] CRUZE, CRUZE LIMITED; 1.4L

$702.41$521.19
How much are they charging for labor?
A thousand dollars would buy you a very nice set of tools to do stuff like this yourself. Even if you live in an apartment and have to rent a garage bay for the weekend you come out way ahead.

MSRP on the 'turbocharger' (including exhaust manifold, waste gate, and misc parts) is $702.41 plus a $75 core charge that's refundable when GM gets the original. Various Chevy dealers sell it for $500-550 online.

I would like to know how many of you that had turbo chargers fixed or replaced
I'm curious what brand of oil you were using. I've heard third hand that everyone who's lost a turbo was using a certain historically respectable brand. I won't fault anyone for choosing them, but in retrospect, it may be a bad choice.

If you are open to getting a tune, you could get a BNR tune with BNR wastegate actuator for $800 shipped and fix the problem while making way more power than stock :)

I appreciate the input but if I put a BNR turbo in it Chevrolet would probably void something else on it.

Any other symptoms other than a underboost code? Has the intake system been tested for leaks? If the turbo has failed you'd likely notice a whole lot more than just a engine light/code
