As manager within GM Canada's upper management for customer service said "If you do not feel safe driving you new GM vehicle there are alternate modes of transportation such as the bus or taxi."
Since some of the above problems are intermittent (stalling and the horn going off) and can't be duplicated on the 5 minute road test they can't be fixed or looked into. We bought this car because they are known for being rock solid with very few, if any at all, problems. We are also a one car household.
We paid $42,000 for this car after all the taxes, protection packages, and extended warranty. This is, in hind sight, was probably a little bit too much.
We know that we have a lemon and despite all the problems that have been found with this vehicle our dealer would not talk to GM for us. The car has been in and out of the shop approximately 30 times in the past 3 years that we have owned it. If we lived in a province with a lemon law this problem would have been off our hands a long time ago.
This was one of the cars that I had wanted... so we splurged on the last year that they were making a 2 door GTP. I am extremely disappointed in this vehicle and can NEVER suggest a GM vehicle to anyone after this experience. Just the possibility that they get will get treated the same way we have for buying their product that happens to be a lemon.
I have always liked GM vehicles and their innovative engineering, but I don't think I will ever own one again.
