Just curious if anyone has had this issue with the Chevy 1.5L turbo engine. Yesterday I took my wife's 'Nox to work (since it hasn't been driven in a while since she's been working from home) and on the way home it started cutting out/surging/etc. CEL light came on and the LED display showed "Reduced Engine Power". Got home, hooked up my scanner and it showed a P0234 code. Took it to the dealer today and they replaced the wastegate solenoid.

I couldn't find any other info on the 2018+ 1.5L turbo models having any issues but plenty on the 1.4L models. Fortunately the car is still under warranty.

GM products are not as good as in earlier years IMO. girlfriend bought new 13 malibu LS was sucking over a qt of oil in less than a thou with just 60 thou on it, dumped it for a preowned 18 kia optima that uses NO oil + a far better car overall IMO!!
