General Motors Oil Life Monitor Update

General Motors Oil Life Monitor Update

Update affects over 770,000 2010-2012 vehicles equipped with 2.4L engines.

General Motors is providing a software update for certain 2010-2012 vehicles equipped with a 2.4L engine (LAF/LEA). This update enhances the engine oil monitoring system and in most cases reduces the oil change interval. This update is to address warranty issues that have occurred because of premature wear of engine components. Note that the owner’s manual recommends changing the engine oil and filter at least once a year, regardless of mileage.

The affected vehicles include the following manufactured before the production change:

  • 2010-2011 Buick LaCrosse
  • 2011-2012 Buick Regal
  • 2010-2012 Chevrolet Equinox
  • 2010-2012 GMC Terrain

Owners of these vehicles are being notified of the change and the program is in effect until February 28, 2015.

The full text of the campaign, #12312, and customer letter are available in ProDemand.
