The engine failed after just 621 miles on the clock. For such a low mileage car, the owner would definitely be disappointed in his brand new car. Infact, Youtuber steelankles has managed to capture the whole incident on camera.
However, kudos to Chevrolet for getting right to work on the car. The company replaced the engine with a brand-new one in just two weeks.
Chevrolet has made many deliveries to the customers, and it is not very confident and inspiring when your car’s engine blows up. That too with such low miles. The saving grace is that these failures have been rare, and Chevy is taking prompt action on them.
The exact cause is not yet revealed, but the owner speculated that it could be a spun rod bearing.
