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.

DETROIT, MICHIGAN -- I just brought a 2008 Chevy Impala and have nothing but problems since. I borrowed from my 401k in order to have a reliable car and this is what I get for it. I need a dependable car that doesn't eat tires or scrubs or shakes while driving. I haven't had the car 1 year and I'm thinking of changing back to dodge. Can someone help me trade this car in for another Chevy? I'm paying a 450 dollar not on a car I really don't love.4 Replies - Latest reply on 03/10/2012Add reply
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.
KERNERSVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA -- My husband and I bought a Chevrolet, Malibu one year ago. No it was not new however we were told that it was in great shape. Yes it is in great shape. Well all of the sudden my husband tells me that my paint is peeling off my car. I called car max first because we did buy an extended warranty on the car, only to find out that it does not cover exterior parts of the vehicle. I went to Chevrolet here in town and found out that the paint is peeling. The man explained to me that he can tell that it has not been replaced or repainted. He also told me that it is the manufacturers fault. There is nothing that they can do.

Oh yeah he also showed me four other spots that were getting ready to bubble and pop out then peel. No one will help me and I don't think that it is right for them to create the problem and stick is with hard working people. I WILL NEVER BUY ANOTHER CHEVROLET AGA

Lsx 454, lsx454 crate motor- THIN CYLINDER WALLS
2 Replies - Latest reply on 03/13/2012Add reply
An important component of the engine block’s strength comes from having enough metal thickness to support a load. The industry standard and Chevrolet’s standard for cylinder wall thickness is a minimum of. 200 thousands of an inch. Chevrolet’s own advertising for the lsx block states “maximum 4.250 bore at. 200 minimum wall thickness”. My defective block had a smaller 4.185 bore, hence the remaining cylinder wall thickness should have been. 2325. However the sonic testing that was performed post-mortem discovered a bore thickness as little as. 177 which effectively cheated me of. 0555 thickness of metal or using a simple analogy in dollars, I was entitled to $232.50 but only received $177.00 dollars. A shortage of $55.50 or 24 percent!
Clearly this engine block was defective even by Chevrolets own standards. Below is the page directly from Chevrolet. As Proof, I circled in red where Chevrolet states cylinder wall thickness.

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!
I bought this Chevy truck new after driving chevys for 45 years. At 52K miles, the left front wheel bearing was loose enough to cause a vibration. I was amazed to find that the bearings are not servicable but have to be replaced as a unit at at the cost of $550. The dealer covered this repair under extended warranty. Now at 94K miles, the right front bearing failed. The cost at this time is $757, not covered by warranty. For the first 100 years of automobile manufacturing, wheel bearings could be serviced and adjusted for a nominal fee. To change this assembly to something that can only be replaced for an exorbitant price is outrageous. The next vehicle I purchase wiil be a Honda.3 Replies - Latest reply on 01/18/2011Add reply

MORGANTON, NORTH CAROLINA -- I ordered a 2011 Chevrolet Equinox from Rooster Bush Chevrolet on June 30 2010 and paid a down payment on the car at that time. I was told it would probably take six weeks to deliver. I have now waited 11 weeks with no communication from GM about the delay or the expected delivery date. When the local dealer has called he has been assured my order is in line and waiting assembly- why is it taking so long to get a new car when I chose American at a time that I am trying to do my part for the economy.
In hind site I would have done things very differently had I known it would take three months or longer . . .

Well here is another invention to prove employees have too much time on their hands. The key-less resistor ignition. Or better put a hundred dollar cell phone sized do it all key-less entry, start and what ever, in place of a 1.00 key to get this Corvette moving.

If I knew this POS was going to cause me trouble I'd have bought a 06 with a key ignition. For you geeks that want all the bells and whistles buy an 08, but for the die hard motor head you will be amazed at the BS in this cars computer and tricks under its belt. I want a corvette that goes and handles not a bells and whistles girlie sports car.
Next car will be a no frills real mans car.
Thanks to the girlie men at GM to remove the hair on GM's chest.
