ZL1 Camaro, CTS-V Get Free Replacement Superchargers

ZL1 Camaro, CTS-V Get Free Replacement Superchargers

Rather than issuing a recall, General Motors is extending its warranty coverage on the Chevrolet ZL1 Camaro and Cadillac CTS-V after discovering a flaw with certain superchargers.

The American automaker will be extending the supercharger warranty on the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 and Cadillac CTS-V after it discovered a problem with the powertrain. On the affected vehicles, the supercharger may not perform as designed. As a result, a contamination of the supercharger’s internal bearing shaft grease can occur causing a rattling noise from the engine at idle. If left alone, a bearing failure can occur that could potentially result in engine damage.

On the affected vehicles, the American automaker will replace the supercharger at no cost and the company is extending the warranty coverage for the problem to 10 years or 120,000 miles. If you own a 2009-2013 Cadillac CTS-V or a 2012-2013 Chevrolet Camaro equipped with a 6.2-liter supercharged engine, you will want to call your local dealership with your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to determine if you’re affected.
