I have a 2012 Cruze LT and I now have code P0299. It indicates that there is an issue with the Turbo. From what read this will have to be replaced. I am assuming that it will be covered by the warranty, Am I corrent in my assumption or is this wishful thinking?

The check engine light for my 2011 Cruze 1.4 came on last summer and the mechanic said it was a "false code" and reset it. The light didn't come on for six months and then it came on again one day while driving. The mechanic said it was a code for the turbo emissions and he cleaned the emissions system. The light came on again a few weeks later, same code. He reset it again but the light came on again after 150 miles. The mechanic indicated in a prior visit that if the cleaning didn't work the turbo would have to be replaced. There is no indication of a problem with the engine or turbo while driving other than the check engine light.

 

I assume the warranty wouldn't cover this as the car is over 5 years old, unless there was an extension that I'm not aware of. Anyone know if there is extended coverage for a turbo problem? Also, it sounds like an expensive repair to replace the turbo. Anyone know the cost? Thanks for any information.

I called the dealer and asked whether there was extended coverage on the turbo and was told no. I called the Chevrolet Customer Service number 800-222-1020 and asked whether any accommodation could be made in my case given I only have 28,000 miles on the car and after a dozen minutes of being put on hold I was also told no. The Chevrolet representative said while they wouldn't pay for any of it she would put me in touch with a dealer for the repair. I told her I was quite able to call the dealer myself and make an appointment. What I needed was some assistance in paying for a major part failing after 28,000 miles that will cost $2,000 or more to repair.

Damn, those are huge problems with Chevy GM. Never thought that as many people had problems with it.

My 2015 Chevy Cruze Eco 1.4L Turbo has the same issue. I had the code P0229 come and go twice. Went to dealer and now awaiting a new Turbo unit. They found a crack and a bad linkage. There might be a recall on these since I'm seeing more and more getting repaired. My Cruze has 19,000 miles on it.

Follow up on my Turbo Change out. Dealer had the Turbo replaced and the new oil link lines that were broken during the install of the turbo. Had to wait an extra day for parts that the dealer broke. Oh well at least they gave me a free vehicle to drive. Next day Cruze was fixed and since the repair I'm now smelling burnt oil on the exhaust. Went back to dealer twice and they stated it will burn off. Nice to drive a new car around with smell and smoke coming from the engine.
