I’m just guessing here, but I *believe* the 525 piston ring “fix” was simply the introduction of redesigned piston rings into the production stream at the Plant.Do you know, what is the 525 piston ring "fix" and did the fix work?
Well, the *new* 2013 SCA (alone) is allegedly worth upwards of $45 Million, so if you take out $5 Million for lawyers' and administrators' fees, that leaves $40 Million. At $1500/repair, that's 27,000 repairs. At $3,000, ~13,500 repairs. What's that ... 5-10% of 2013's built? Just a rough guess...And it would be interesting to know what percentage of these are having an issue. My mom has a 2012 Nox 2.4 and still has no problem. She has about 80K on the vehicle now. And though she is 82 now, she is not a light foot on the peddle and travels a couple times a year in the Nox to see other folks in the family.
Huh? I thought they were mailing out the notices in October - after the Preliminary Settlement was Finalized?I just got my notice in the mail today. My 2011 Nox only has 64k miles buts it is beyond the 7.5 yrs so I am guessing I will opt out.
Does it say anything about a “Final Approval Hearing” on October 4th?
Looks like anyone who paid for repairs can submit a claim and get their money back. So unless that's the case, I'm guessing people would want to opt out. It also states that gm will perform oil consumption tests for free and repair if needed but only within the given timeline (7.6 yrs or 120k miles) so my 12' I've never paid for repairs or got tested so I'm sol and should opt out?
LOL! GM was supposed to generate the VIN list and turn it over to IHS/Polk - who was supposed to generate the mailing list from Dept of Motor Vehicle records, and turn this information over to Analytics Consulting for mailing.I got the notice in the mail yesterday.
But does not apply... we have the 3.6 V6.
It’s really about calendar time right now (for 2012 owners), not mileage. 2011 owners (who seem to be getting screwed here ... they should have 8.5 years, not 7.5) ...are probably out of luck - unless they paid out-of-pocket (within SCA timing constraints) and are applying for reimbursement (with receipts). Owners may have less than 120,000 miles on their vehicles, but GM can deny you coverage based on the time limitation.I got the paper in the mail yesterday and I have a 11 terrain 2.4 ecotec.
My terran is still under excessive oil consumption warranty until 120,000 miles.
