My 2011 JGC V6 w/9,000 miles ended up in shop yesterday with engine lite blinking, they called last night and there's low compression in #1,3,5 cylinders, they need to remove the head to see what's happening. They were not sure it would be covered by warranty and needed approval to proceed. Very disappointing.

Dealer said he had two other JGC's in shop with similar problem.

Re: Newbie...
How could an issue like that not be covered under warranty at 9000 miles? Your dealer sounds shady.

Re: Newbie...
Dealer just called, right side head needs to be replaced due to burnt valves. It will be covered under warranty. They said the head is back-ordered, so that tells me this is not an uncommon problem for the new V-6. Not sure what would cause the burnt valves with only 9,000 miles.
