C6 4.2 V8 wagon and timing chain
« on: March 29, 2016, 10:12:19 pm »
Looking at getting one of the above wagons, but have been reading about the timing chain issue that seems to plague the 4.2 V8s.
Has anyone been down the road of actually replacing one?   if so, what is a ballpark figure to do this worst case scenario? 

If the car had a mechanical warranty, would this work have any chance of being covered by this, or would it be considered a wear and tear item and i would be left footing the bill?

Really love this wagon, has everything I need for a great family wagon, just a big red flag with this timing chain issue possibly.
