Bad news for GM Duramax owners

Read yesterday that GM is in the process of buying back certain 2500 and 3500 HD Duramax trucks for some engine issue. Not much info on what it will entail or what trucks are involved. If they buy it back, how does one replace it in a timely manner in today's market, and what value do they put on it? This us coming from a site called GM Authority.

I would think it would have to be either kbb, or nada retail value, inflated or not.

Think it would be the same way if your in a wreck, and its totaled. They just pay you off, and the rest is your problem. If its just damaged, they have to give you a loaner till its fixed.

I will believe it when the recall is more published, and the parameters are listed.

Did it say what yrs. or issues?

I would look at it as good news, they are admitting a problem and taking care of it.

If it is a new truck, then I would think it would be how Ford did recently with the issues of the rear axles on the SWD F350 built from October 2020 to May 2021.

We had a new Mini Cooper years ago. It kept getting a CEL light, bad sensor. It was in the shop about ten times. I told them the next time a got a CEL they could keep the car.

They gave me a check for what I paid for the car, including taxes and license. Basically a free car for a year.

My sis-n-law's boyfriend has one and has already had engine trouble. The Chevy dealer gave him a rental until it was fixed which took over a month. He's got it back and I guess it's running well but I would not be happy having a new truck with an engine that's already been torn into..

What about a new p/u that has recalls on it before it even hits the dealers lot? Not just one, but several?

All new p/uís have them, but what do you expect for 75k.

If it is fixed, what's the problem? It's fixed.

Apparently gm is choosing not to fix the problem in place, but replace the whole p/u.

They will announce the problem, and the vins/yrs/ models affected on 4-21-22. Until then the issue has not been publicly stated by gm.

While I don't have a Duramax diesel I am following this thread as I work for a large GMC dealer. They have no knowledge of this as of today.

That would just suck. Look at the hit you take just driving it off the lot. Or what about the person that bought all the options or added mods,, which a trade in wants to give you nothen for them.

This is something that the bean counters figured out. It's cheaper to but the old truck for next to nothen then the gm internal of an engine and the shop hours.
