Performance is sorely lacking
Not long after we purchased this vehicle, the brakes began to squeal. When we notified the dealer, they said that it's typical of a new vehicle and that we'd have to "break" it in. They also said they wouldn't touch the engine if it was under 3,000 miles. Since then the following has been happening:
1. the truck shakes at a hard break (when contacted the dealer, again, he said it was typical)
2. gas leak in gas tank.
3. when making a full turn, (as in a U-turn) you can hear the wheels "pop" as you turn.
4. when accelerating, the engine sounds as if I'm driving a diesel truck.
It is generally a nice looking vehicle, but it has many problems.
If the dealer would fix the problems listed, I think I would enjoy the vehicle more.
As it is now, I'm afraid that something very wrong will happen with it.
We have owned GM vehicles for as long as I can remember and this is the first time that we are extremely disappointed in it's performance.
It really adds a huge seed of doubt in American made cars.
Unfortunately, I'm pretty certain that our next vehicle will be foreign.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
