Yea, and the 3.4L comes from the same lineage.
The 3.4 also suffers from piston slap; listen to any GM minivan from the last 6 or so years when they start....some sound like baby diesels.
So other than this piston slap that is a noise produced when it starts, are there other problems that I should know about?

Is it not possible that "piston slap" is fixed? Is it due to a faulty fit and occurs after several years? I started a Nox and it sounded like any other car to me?

If there are so many issues, how or why does GM still use this motor? Why are the class action suits not lining up? I am not trying to start a flaming war, only trying to understand what I have on order and deciding if I still want it.
