Chevrolet Cruze / Sonic and Buick Encore PCV Problems

There have been more than a few complaints lately from consumers who purchased 2010-2013 Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain regarding the blowout of the PCV Valve (especially in colder weather). Information regarding the PCV issue (and corresponding warranty extension) can be accessed here: https://www.valerolaw.com/news/2018/1/22/general-motors-24-liter-ecotec-pcv-warranty-extension

Equally interesting is that the PCV issue also affects the following vehicles:

  1. 2011 - 2014 Chevrolet Cruze Equipped with 1.4L (RPO LUJ or LUV)

  2. 2013 - 2014 Buick Encore Equipped with 1.4L (RPO LUJ or LUV)

  3. 2013 - 2014 Chevrolet Sonic Equipped with 1.4L (RPO LUJ or LUV)

  4. 2013 - 2014 Chevrolet Trax (Canada Only) Equipped with 1.4L (RPO LUJ or LUV)

There is a TSB available and it is accesible here.

General Motors Discontinues Chevy Sonic

Chevrolet and Ford are discontinuing the Ford Fiesta, Ford Taurus, while Chevrolet is stopping production of the Chevrolet Sonic.  Analysts suspect that it is due to consumers moving more towards SUV and Crossover type vehicles given gas prices are somewhat low right now.  I suspect it may be due to the issues that these vehicles have had.  For example, Sonic owners have complained about the engine, transmission and starter conditions for quite some time.  Those are accessible here.   Car Complaints was also quick to pick up on these complaints as well.   

Here is a link to the NBC article and snippet below:

Both Ford and GM plan to stop making three cars for the U.S. market, as they continue to shift their focus toward popular and high-margin SUVs and trucks, The Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday, citing sources.

General Motors will stop making the small Chevrolet Sonic car, possibly by the end of the year, the Journal reported. Ford plans to stop selling the comparable subcompact Fiesta in the U.S. and discontinue the larger Taurus sedan, once the best-selling car in the U.S.

Chevrolet declined to comment.
