Just received a letter from Chevrolet about a "customer satisfaction program". Instead of fixing the engine oil consumption problem, they will reprogram the ECU that recommend more frequent oil changes to support engine durability and overall operating costs.
What a joke, GM is implicitly admitting the wide spread problem and tries to cover it up by forcing more frequent oil changes.
What a joke.

Sueven - I just got the same letter on Friday, March 8th... and ironically it was dated Feb 1, 2013 and the offer to reprogram the ECU was only good until Feb 28, 2013. Thankfully my awesome dealer did the work when they put the new engine in.... Too bad the letter didn't give a return address as I would have sent the joker who signed the letter a response about the issues with this car....

smc8888, You are talking about two completely different things. The reprogram has to due with oil change frequencies suggested by the oil life monitor and has nothing to do with and is not intended to address the oil consumption problem some owners are experiencing.
#1888 of 2371 Recall for engine control Module - 2010 NOX
Mar 12, 2013 (5:36 am)
This recall is good through February 2015 depending on month you purchased your 2010 Nox. The intent ios to get owners to change oil on a regular schedule or appropriate time; the worn broken down oil will cause internal excessive unnessisary engine wear. being said; the idiot gauge that monitores engine oil life is not a smart way to gauge oil changes in this 4 cyl. or any other engine. Oil changes are cheap and good insurance for your warranty protection.

I believe the letter said Feb 28, 2015. By which time, I will ditch my wife's Nox. I have told her to listen for any abnormal sounds.

I was never sent ANYTHING from Chevy. Nada. They have blacklisted my truck for now. I cant even get Chevy to change the oil. The dealer who was working with me for so long has just been advised by the local GM Rep that there is NOTHING WRONG with my truck and is no longer authorized to work on it. I had to take it to STS for my oil change.
Cant wait to know the outcome from ALL OF MY PUBLIC OUTBURST!! There is NOTHING I wont do to keep my daughter safe. Nothing.

I have not posted anything here since I traded my 2010 Equinox for a Ford, but I do follow the updates everyday.
I have been getting emails from GM about my satisfaction with my Equinox...they don't even know, that I don't own it any more!
Just got my letter today from the "customer satisfaction program"...how sad that GM is covering up their engine problems with more frequent oil changes, what a joke.
My question is: Has anyone contacted their US Senators or Congressman concerning this cover-up by GM? Maybe if all of us sent them emails, they would look into this...
What do you think?
