My 2011 GMC Acadia needs a new timing chain and it only has 65,000 miles on it. Is there anyone still interested in filing a class action lawsuit against GM?

First time post -- so apologies if I get something wrong.

I have a 2010 Acadia, currently 110K in miles as of July 2016.  I had the timing chain replaced in January 2015 (was under 100K miles) and the dealership stated if I got oil changes every 3K miles, I would have no more issues.  We did that and have the records.

It is now 19 months later and I need to get the timing chain replaced again.  I have talked to the dealership and I have talked to the global warranty "customer service" and they say it is my responsibility.

I can't fathom how this is my responsibility and that they aren't taking any responsibility for this.  How is replacing your timing chain 2x in 2 years acceptable?

Advice appreciated -- Jen

Talk to a consumer protection lawyer and follow their advice.

Perhaps you should read the thread. Directly related to the topic.

"Do you think it is worth filing a class action suit to cover timing chains for the life of the vehicle?"

This is what the thread is about, SA. Previous discussions all center on the class action topic. It's not about some individual's plight.

FYI, I read the thread in its entirety from the day it started, on the day it started.  Grin

I'm on your side with this Copperhead, but how many owner's have had failures after warranty?  Not many; I could see this being important if chains were failing after warranty, but the numbers don't support this.

Sound like your power train warranty has expired.   What would you have customer service do for you?

I am the traverse owner that has started the class action lawsuit.  This is my letter on all the forumns:

Class action lawsuit against GM for defective engines.  Send info to ejmoschini@hotmail.com to be added as a claimant.  600+ of the same problem with the standard answer from every dealer service department "dirty oil", proves GM knows of the problems and instructed dealers to give this ridiculous answer to everyone.  The real problem = The oil injection ports are too small.  Now, 2 years after the timing chain replacements, I personally (as have 100+ other owners) have developed an oil leak at the timing chain cover.  GM service center answer = fluctuations in the weather from hot to cold.  BS!! This is a humongous problem for GM and instead of owning up to it, they're trying to cover it all up.  No way that everyone is experiencing the same problem(s) all over the country in Traverse, Equinox, Acadia and Outlook.

There is no cost obligation on your part at all.

Put Class Action in the subject line to avoid being put in my spam folder.

I have all the records of oil changes from the first up until now.  It is not because of dirty oil, the  oil injection ports are too small.  You're here to tell me that the same engine on several different platforms all failed because of dirty oil?  Seriously? Not even possible.  It happens before and after warranty coverage and the dealers will not replace the chains before warranty expires on their own dime.  They put it all on the consumer's back.

It's real, not a spam, phishing or anything else.  The motors from 2006-? are defective.  Why else would they all be failing in and out of warranty for the exact same problem?  Dirty oil - I personally know young people who have never changed the oil in their vehicles and have over 150k miles with no issues like most of us are having with these GM vehicles.

First, they are not ALL failing.   
Second, I seriously doubt, young or old, you know someone that has went 150k miles without ever changing the oil.
Third, if you want people to respond to you then use a real email address instead of a disposable hotmail address.   Only the naive will take one of those seriously.
Fourth, who do you plan to sue regarding the 2006-2009 engines?   That company no longer exists and the new company was absolved of product liability issues.
