    Default 2011 Genesis 4.6 ENGINE SEIZED @ 27,000 miles

    Members don't see this ad
    So last week I was backing out of the driveway the car shuttered and stalled. Never happened before thought it was odd, but I hit the button to restart the motor and nothing. One simple click and that's it. I call triples A for a jump thought maybe by some chance the battery was dead. No luck didnt start.
    I had the car towed to my local dealer in NJ that Sunday evening. Monday afternoon i got the call that the engine seized completely. No check engine lights, no low oil pressure, no oil light, nothing.
    The dealer said they were going to put a new motor in the car and i should have it back by the end of the week, AND they did! Going to pick it up today.

    The most flabergasting part of this whole scenario is the cost of the new motor....$15,000. Sounds kinda odd to me but for 15k I could have a blower sticking out of the hood making a 1,000 hp.


    Props to the dealer though for taking care of this!

    Did you have to pay or was it covered by the warranty?

    My previous car blew its engine, and that is what got me into the Genesis. The new engine would have been $22K ($17K for the short block plus labor).

    The N54 short block MSRP is only $12,366, though most dealers would sell it for around $10K. $15K for the Genesis V8 is a little higher than I would expect, unless that includes a crapload of labor.

    Be glad you bought a Hyundai.

    Had an engine seize at 25K on a 1972 Chevy Vega. Dealer and GM laughed when I told them the aluminum block was an engineering problem and they should replace the engine. (Later they admitted the design was flawed and sleeved the block, but too bad for me since I bought the car before the engineering revision)

    Warrantee was 12K or 1 year back then. I sold car as is that I paid cash for and took out a loan to buy a Toyota.

    Last GM car I ever bought. To this day most cars have only a 3 year / 36K warrantee. If auto manufactures only believe their product will only last for 3 / 36 then why should I have any faith in their product?

    The head gaskets were the issue on the 2.3's in the early Vega.

    Steel gasket, rust, leak, rust particles and anti-freeze do terrible things to aluminum cylinder walls. The factory engines had aluminum cylinder walls right up to the time they stopped making the 2.3 and switched over to the 2.5's.

    I bought mine in 76, new. I ran the snot out of that thing for years. It was running like a top at 125,000 miles on the engine when I parked it due to the effects of all the salt they put on the roads in WV in the winter time.

    Maybe I was just lucky but oil/oil filter changes every 3,000 miles might have had something to do with it, too.

    My Coupe sure does run better than that old Astre (Pontiac's version of the Vega) but so far, between being married and being in my mid 50's, I've never had the fun in the coupe I had in the Astre.
