I wrote about a warranty extension for Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain owners here, where General Motors offered owners of 2010-2012 Equinox and Terrain owners a completely free warranty extension covering oil consumption issues. Along that same road, General Motors has also issued a warranty extension for 2010-2011 Chevrolet Equinoxes and Terrains with 2.4L engines regarding the catalytic converter. This is good news because it means that if your car has fewer than 120,000 miles and your vehicle requires a catalytic converter replacement, you can have that done at a GM dealership at no cost to you. The bulletin is titled 15810-01: Special Coverage – Catalytic Converter Replacement – 2010-2011 Chevrolet Equinox & GMC Terrain and is copy / pasted below:
Condition: On some 2010-2011 model year Chevrolet Equinox and GMCTerrain vehicles that are equipped with a 2.4L engine (RPO LAF), a malfunction-indicator light (MIL) may illuminate due to thermal damage or face erosion of the catalytic converter.
Special Coverage Adjustment: This special coverage covers the condition described above for a period of 10 years or 120,000 miles (193,000 km), whichever occurs first, from the date the vehicle was originally placed in service, regardless of ownership.
Correction Replace the catalytic converter. The repairs will be made at no charge to the customer.
If you own a 2010-2012 Chevrolet Equinox or GMC Terrain and have experienced any issues related to excessive oil consumption, stalling, poor engine performance, camshaft actuator failure or any other concern that was covered under the manufacturer's warranty, please contact us immediately at 424-299-4447 for a free consultation for information regarding your vehicle and a potential lemon law claim!
