Not mine, a co-worker. It's an '09. At 40k he said the engine was making a rattling noise and burning oil. Took it to Saab of Troy and they said nothing wrong, it should burn oil. Took it back at 48k with the problem getting worse, now burning a quart every 1000 miles. They said no problem, that's normal. Well, he's not a car guy so at 60k the engine lets go. They say, too bad, out of warranty.
Now he's left holding the bag so to speak.
Is that 5.3 engine the same 5.3 that GM uses in all of their vehicles. I had an '01 GMC 5.3 with 180k and it didn't hardly use a drop of oil between 4k oil changes.
Anyone have any insight on how he should proceed? He's pretty upset as you can imagine.
