My 1LE set a record

The quickest breakdown of any vehicle I have bought brand new. Around 200 miles and the check engine light came on. Took it to the dealership and apparently the the air box was deformed. So much for the one month quality hold it was in.

They claim it's fixed. Will pick it up later today and hopefully all is well and things stay reliable.

Hope they got it fixed properly. Mine developed low rpm exhaust rattle and occasional wind noise (coming through the driver side window) at 200 miles. Unsurprisingly, they were not able to reproduce any of those. I bet intentional deafness is a common trait among service reps

I'm going to order a pair of race ramps along with a hammer today

I was thinking about that. The car had to sit in the driveway while I epoxied the garage floor and was thinking maybe heat warped it. However, it's an air box. The plastic has to resist much higher heat being so close to the engine. I am thinking since it happened so soon the part just had to be defective. Annoying considering the mileage, but overall a quick and easy fix. Better than something like the heads being warped.

Seems like the car is functioning perfectly, there was a problem the computer recognized it. Fast turn around by your dealership not always the case.

That's fast 200 miles and the first problem. I'm at 800 tonight and got my first issue. Switching lanes are 70 on the highway the tire pressure monitoring system gave me a warning to get it checked out. The menu wasnt displaying tire pressure. It fixed itself after I restarted. Hope this doesn't happen all the time.

I wouldn't call this a breakdown, rather an inconvenience.

How could the computer detect that the airbox was deformed? All it does is measure the airflow going into the throttle body. Unless the airbox was severly deformed or obstructed this should not have been discovered by the computer. Did they show you the airbox after they took it out? How was it "deformed" visibly? Do you know what code the car threw?

The computer cannot detect a deformed airbox specifically. What it can detect is a lean condition if it's bad enough. That lean condition can be caused by an number of things and in this case the dealer tracked it down to a deformed air box that was not sealing.

No, they did not show me the air box and I didn't ask. I wasn't all that interested. They got me in there quickly, fixed the car quickly and I was on my way. So far no more check engine light and that's all that matters.

I don't remember the code exactly.

cbass,

Sorry to hear about the check engine light. I'm glad you took it to the dealership where the issue was addressed and corrected for you. Please keep me updated with how the vehicle operates. You are more than welcome to PM me anytime to let me know what's going on.

Sincerely,

William R.

You mean an upgraded CAI wouldn't have fixed this. REALLY.

Airbox should be the first thing to go anyway. Toss the stocker and hit us up for a CAI intake! You won't regret it.

I'm not really sold on a CAI. From the testing I have seen the stock air box does a pretty good job of controlling intake temperatures. Right now I would rather keep the car mostly stock to not have any issues with warranty claims. After that we will see.

Seriously? You actually dropped a valve in the engine? What was your build date?

YEP. Just saw mine for the second time while in my attic today! So clean and shiny. Maybe I should put it for sale. Took that thing off RIGHT away.

Are there any mods you can do which will not create warranty issues, i.e., CAI or is up to the individual dealer?
