Interesting, considering a tuning company is "up selling" Chevrolet cars.
TRIFECTA: The 2.0L Turbo 300HP Cruze - Articles - News - TRIFECTA - Home - trifectaperformance.com
After a little searching, if the 2.0 (LTG engine) issue was "piston damage due to engine misfire", then it would appear as if they did. See below.Have they figured out the 2.0T piston issue yet?
That was the only "solid" info I found regarding the pistons. Other thing I found was regarding a faulty connecting rod bearing. That affected 2013-2014 Malibu, Impala, Regal, ATS, and CTS with a 2.0T or the 2.5NA. People do seem to still be talking about it on Regal, ATS, and Malibu websites (regarding piston failure). Also, it would appear that GM is fixing these under powertrain warranty with "beefier pistons".Eh. I think it was more than just that year, and also included the Regal and several years of ATS. I've heard piston failures and engine rebuilds are actually quite common. Don't know if it was solved for the 2015-2017 model years, or the less powerful versions of the 2.0 like in the Malibu, or not.
