    QuestionEngine failures?

    Is anyone aware of any engine failures with a stock CTS-V engine? I was talking to a ZL-1 owner over the weekend and it appears more than one has been reported.

    This is bound to have happen with any mass production engine. Is it true this engine is built in Mexico

    Engine failure is an uncommon thing with the LSA, stock. It does happen, though. I wouldn't worry about it. Drivetrain is pretty robust on this car.

    The LSA is built at the Chevrolet plant in Silao, Mexico.
