New class action lawsuit affecting 20 models was just announced. This goes far beyond Theta Ii. Nu, Gamma, Theta, Lambda and Kappa are all on the list. For now, the suit claims excessive oil consumption. Deja vu. Will catastrophic engine failures follow, like the did with Theta Ii?

I'm confused about which engines this is about.
I have a 2018 Elantra GT 2.0 and it uses no oil.
Is this engine affected?

If you have a motor that MAY BE affected, simply having this motor will get you a free oil change will the suit is settled. That's what usually happens. Class action suits are often misunderstood-witness the feeding frenzy on here about this one.
