    This car has overheated twice before during this same kind of driving. It has an aluminum block and heads. What more do you need to have happen before taking it to the dealer?

  • I'm hoping this is one of those out-of-order posts, @fordson1. On an unrelated note, just wanted to compliment you on a great post, Dan! More of this kind of quality, please!

    The overheating thread is here, in case you missed it.

  • I read that the C7 Stingray Z51 in Car & Driver's long-term fleet blew an engine at 6,000 miles. Hopefully the C7 in Edmunds' long-term fleet will fare better.

    Not an out-of-order post, because they reference both overheating episodes in it, cobryson.

    Here's what C&D had to say about that engine failure:

    "Our forensics lab was unable to assist in dissecting the matter, but an investigation by GM pinned tentative blame on a piece of metal debris (likely from a bad oil filter) that worked its way into the oiling system and wrecked a connecting-rod bearing, which created even more debris that damaged the engine’s bottom-end. Given the LT1’s tight tolerances and high-performance design, it didn’t take much to upset its workings. We’ve heard of a few similar accounts throughout the Stingray community and GM says it’s aware of the issue and is analyzing its manufacturing process for a root cause.
