Q: How sound are 2014 Buick Regal Turbos? I am having to replace the turbocharger already?

asked by on

I have to drive a lot for work (1000-1500 miles a month). Have to replace the turbocharger and the car is only 4 years old. Is this car a money pit (meaning will I consistently have issues)?

My car has 92300 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

You did not state the mileage you have but your turbo should not go out so soon. I would recommend using a high quality synthetic oil of correct viscosity for turbo engines. This oil may help prolong the life of the turbo and should be changed on a regular schedule to help even more. Using incorrect oil or generic cheap oil can cause excessive turbo bearing heat and failure prematurely.
