The engine has had the carbon removed 9 times for a knocking sound.
The air conditioning compressor has been replace 5 times.
The ac hoses and lines were replaced because they cracked at the compressor.
The brake rotors all 4 have been replace 3 times.
The front pads were replaced with factory pads 4 times before it had 69.000. I had ceramic low noise and low dust high performance pads and have not replaced them since they are due to be replaced soon.
This car has had a bad vibration at 70 mph and up since I bought it. 4 sets of tires.
The engine was completely resealed pouring out oil.$3.500.00.
2 months later the engine was replaced after it went out of warranty. It was using 4 qts of oil to 1 tank of gas and GM would not help. It sat at the Dealer for so long waiting for parts that the brake pads had rusted to the rotors and they all had to be replaced again.
After I received the car bake there were bolts and nuts that would fall out from under the car when it was driven. The wiring harness were not reinstalled properly. The car had the same mileage when I picked it up the it had when it was taken to the Dealer ship. The ac lines had not been reinstalled in their brackets and they cracked again. The were replaced again.
After the engine was installed it was setting a bunch of codes. the PCV plastic line was cracked at the manifold. I ordered it from the same installing dealer they lost my order and it took 2 months to get the new hose assembly. It was setting codes for the secondary air pumps. I traced it down to a broken line under the intake on the drivers die rear of the engine.
I got all of the dealer screw ups repaired. I found out that the spark plugs were not changed when the engine was installed. I started to set random miss fire codes under a light load at 50 mph. I replaced the plugs and fount corrosion in the ends of 2 wires at the coil pack so I replaced all of the wires. The engine replacement was $9.856.99. almost 10 grand!!
Now after about 25 t0 30 thousand miles the engine is starting to rattle again. It will not start or run intermittently. The fuel pump sounds like a small air plain taking off.
This car has been maintained to the death. It has had in excess of $25.000.00 spent on it what a heap.
