So you think after 15,000 km it's acceptable? I'm not too worried about the price since it's under warranty anyways it's just the idea have one going so soon.If you like belts, you could buy a Honda with a timing belt and pay $500 every 60k miles for a new one.
Sorry if I sounded snotty, that was not my intention. My point was we don't have this part, so it is not an issue.So you think after 15,000 km it's acceptable? I'm not too worried about the price since it's under warranty anyways it's just the idea have one going so soon.
So does that mean they have resolved this issue with stronger chains?There appears there was a problem with an inordinate amount of chains, it's covered under warrantee and hopefully you got a fun free rental while they fix it, and a wash..
What is the basis for your comment? How about sharing with the rest of us?There appears there was a problem with an inordinate amount of chains...
What article? When, where? Any attribution, name of author, title of article, publication, or website (link, cut-n-paste) might help others find and save for future reference in the event of a timing chain failure.from what I have read, there was a bunch of bad timing chains. The article did not mention how many just that there were some and the warranty was picking up those beyond the warranty period if the identified chain was with-in the build dates.
Talk about JIT supply! It seems GM "perfected" it.....bad for us...GM charges us to have parts sitting on the shelf, most (if not all) stores won't stock parts they don't sell on a regular basis.
That one store may have ordered some for someone else and not used them or some variation of that theme and still had them on the shelf.
In many cases there are none out there to get, so they actually have to be manufactured and shipped directly to the dealer or come through the parts distribution network which would take even longer.
