DETRIOT, MICHIGAN -- We bought our Chevy Uplander in June of 2006, we've had problems with the power doors from the start. The sensors, or so they said. They didn't always work, so we'd have to us the manual, but then there would be a constant "dinging" because the door was not actually closed. The doors will mysterioiusly open on their own, some times they will NOT open at all. They've even opened on their own while we are driving. The company will do NOTHING! I sent letters but to no avail. The van was in the shop constantly. The past year we've had nothing but constant problems and all we get is, "well try it now". now the warranty is over and we have to pay.. for what? I'm not sure, two weeks ago I spent $600 and that same night the doors both had problems. We can't even use the one side. No big deal I guess...well at least tell my five kids! I guess that when one of the kids falls out due to the door opening and they are injured, the law suit against General Motors might get them to take notice!3 Replies - Latest reply on 08/08/2010Add reply
HELENA MT, MONTANTA -- I purchased my 2008 Chevrolet with 24,000 miles on it which meant there was still some warranty.

To make a long story short, when the car was dead one morning (it was the battery gone wrong) - I called the Chevy dealership in Helena, Montana. They kindly reminded me that I could call the Chevolet Roadside Assistance 800 number, which I did. They sent a truck within 20 minutes to jumpstart the battery. Roadside assistance monitored the process with electronic messaging.
I was then able to take the car to the dealer where the service department looked at the car, discovered a loose battery cable, and sent me on my way, amazed and impressed.

At 20k miles, my CD player took a major crap. It's out of warranty, so GM tells me that the CD player isn't important enough for them to FIX, and they want ME to pay them to yank it, and for them to send it OUT to have it fixed on MY DIME.
I have a service record the size of Cleveland on this pile. GM should be ASHAMED, period.

They could not have been nicer or more prompt - both times the called me back with expected time within 4 minutes and the tow truck driver actually contacted me 10 min before they showed up to clarify my location - pleasantly surprised.

My husband and I purchase a new Chevrolet Avalanche in 2003. In 2006 the air conditioner stop working. We took it back to the dealer to have it fix and the dealer told us it was going to cost over $1,200. We purchase a new truck and in three years the air compressor is gone out in our new truck.

WASHINGTON -- Paint was bubbling within months of purchase & they did nothing for us- even their customer service denied any defective paint.

I read now that recourse was to take them to small claims court and this sounds plausible for this running board issue as well. Be sure to get all info together on solutions (such as Canada's running boards being standard equipment) and any info on GM internal findings to present at court.
I would not take even a free vehicle from GM after the way they failed to cover the faulty paint. I love the idea of placing the "Another fine GM paint job" on the window!

LEESBURG, GEORGIA -- The sensor quit working after 70000 miles. The company should replace it a NO COST to the customer. They know it was a faulty part. I just don't understand why they don't pay the full amount. The offer to pay 50% just don't get it. I feel this will be our last GM auto. Sub-standard parts just don't get it. I hope they don't supply parts for our aircraft above us. If the parts are defective just make it right and don't do a half ass job of making it right.

If I did my job and installed something defective I would have to make it 100% right. General Motors you are not the company that I thought you were.
Your letter signed by Jim [snip] is just bologna. Customer service has fallen short of what I expected.

CARLSBAD, NEW MEXICO -- I told the mechanic, it was losing antifreeze since it was new. I was 100 miles away in a strange city and it lost all the antifreeze, it was pouring out, 2 blocks from a garage. I put water in and got there.
I had them fix it and went home. The next day I went to the Chevy garage to see about the warranty and they said NO I didn't have it fixed at a Chevy garage so no warranty. Trying to find a Chevy garage in a strange town with a motor out of coolant. I love the Colorado, but I'll never buy another Chevy product.

Friday, February 11, my oil gauge showed no oil pressure. I had a friend look at my vehicle and decided the gauge was bad. I took my Avalanche in to be serviced by an independent shop who told me all vehicles with the same chassis and year had the same problem and GM issued a Special Coverage Adjustment to cover the defective part. Problem is my vehicle has over 70,000 miles, under 70,000 and everything is covered, between 70,000 and 80,000 just the part is covered. Now the amusing part, to get the free part you have to pay the dealer $60 dollars to get the numbers off your gauges! So much for free part. The real kicker is that GM has known about this problem since 11/8/2007 (date of the Special Coverage) but thought best to keep this knowledge to themselves. I'm sure hoping all the vehicle would rack up more than 80,000 miles!
