Chevrolet Equinox / GMC Terrain PCV Warranty Extension

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.  I also wrote of a warranty extension for the catalytic converter for 2010-2011 Chevrolet Equinox's and GMC Terrains here.  I've found another warranty extension for the PCV (Positive Crankcase Ventilation) system.  This is more good news because it means that if your car has fewer than 120,000 miles and your vehicle requires a PCV system repair, you can have that done at a GM dealership at no cost to you.  The bulletin is titled 14882: Special Coverage Adjustment – Plugged PCV Orifice In Intake Manifold – 2010-2014 Buick Chevrolet GMC and is copy / pasted below:

Condition: Certain 2010-2013 Buick LaCrosse; 2011-2013 Buick Regal; 2012-2013 Buick Verano; 2011-2013 Chevrolet Captiva; 2010-2014 Chevrolet Equinox; 2013 Chevrolet Mailbu; 2012-2013 Chevrolet Orlando; 2010-2013 GMC Terrain vehicles equipped with a 2.4L engine (LAF, LEA or LUK) that have experienced high oil consumption may also experience a frozen and/or plugged PCV (positive crankcase ventilation) system during cold weather operation. This condition may increase crankcase pressure leading to a rear crankshaft seal oil leak. If the oil leak is ignored or not noticed, an engine clatter noise may be noticeable and/or the engine pressure warning light may illuminate. If this condition is not corrected, continued driving with engine noise and/or the engine oil pressure light illuminated may damage the engine.

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.

Dealers are to perform a crankcase pressure check, and if required, remove the intake manifold and clear the PCV orifice. The repairs will be made at no charge to the customer.

New 2012-2017 Jeep Wrangler Radiator Class Action

A new automobile class action case was filed in New York regarding 2012-2017 Jeep Wrangler vehicles titled Malizia et. al. v. FCA US, LLC.  In this class action, plaintiffs allege that the Class Vehicles have a systemic heater defect that causes premature failure of the cooling system.  

According to the Jeep class action, Fiat Chrysler uses two different methods (sand-casting and die-casting) to manufacture components of Jeep Wrangler’s Pentastar engines. Combining these two components causes sand to build-up in the radiator, leading to failure of other systems.  Fiat Chrysler has already issued a warranty extension (x56) for certain Pentastar engines in 2014 due to issues with those engines.  That warranty extension is accessible here.  

The plaintiffs seek to represent a nationwide Class of consumers who purchased or leased a 2012-2017 Jeep Wrangler, as well as a New York subclass for violations of state law. The Jeep class action alleges that Fiat Chrysler breached express and implied warranties and was negligent in allowing the defective components into their vehicles.
