Q: Warranty work

asked by on

Driving normal with no previous signs of any problems. Just had an oil change. engine light came on...Mechanic found a Turbocharge leak. Having an extended warranty, that company wants proof of a leaking problem, is this normal practice? and would a this model car be turbo charged? (has pick-up like a 4-speed)

My car has 80000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Yes, this is a normal practice of some manufacturers, however policies may vary also depending on the type of part being warrantied. This is usually a common practice in an effort to prevent dealers from having parts fraudulently warrantied. The Chevy Cruze was available with a turbo in some models for the 2012 year.
