The dealer sees the car more than I do
Just two weeks after purchasing the car, the A/C was kicking off and on. The compressor was replaced. Didn't fix the problem.
Headlights and dash lights flicker. GM knows about the problem, however they told me (this is GM support center, not the dealer) that it is a normal operation of the car.
Windows will quit working. Check them later and they magically work again.
At 19K the transmission had to be rebuilt because of a shift value that was defective, causing the car to slam into all the gears. Several clutches were severely burned and had to be replaced.
When cold, the CD player skips with every single bump in the road. Once it warms up, the skipping stops.
Again at 23.5K the transmission is slipping again. Apparently it is the same value again that is bad.
The engines uses a very large amount of oil. Currently working with GM on a oil usage measurement to see if it falls in-line with GM's 2qt. for every 4000 miles. Mine is burning about 2qt. every 3200 miles.
It is a great looking car, with many nice options. However, electrically and mechnically it is a piece of junk. It is a very unreliable car and I have had many many visits to the dealership in the 7 months that I have owned it. In other words... avoid the car like the plague.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
