Co-worker has an ‘09 Traverse. Had crossed 200,000 with it when the chain let go. Q4 last year he threw in a Jasper reman engine. Turned out to be bad, so they shipped a 2nd one. Haven’t heard how that one’s doing yet. Think it cost him around $3500 for the engine and $1000+ labor, with 3-year warranty from Jasper.
I’m approaching the window for my next new vehicle purchase. My 2011 V6 Nox has been very good, and I like the *look* of the new ones, but I’m not as brave as you are...
Once again: Good Luck, Good Luck
