A class action alleges defects in 2010-2017 Chevrolet SUVs equipped with 2.4-liter engines. Five named plaintiffs allege General Motors misled customers about the defects and dealers refused to repair the SUVs under warranty. GM allegedly failed to adequately test the piston rings and failed to warn customers about oil consumption issues that left drivers stranded on the highways. The plaintiffs claim the piston rings allow excessive oil consumption that burns up the engines. The piston rings are allegedly too thin to “maintain sufficient tension to seal oil in the crank case” and the “spray jets overload and foul piston rings by spraying oil onto the piston skirt and cylinder wall, causing further loss of oil seal.” https://www.carcomplaints.com/news/2018/chevrolet-equinox-oil-consumption-issues.shtml
