I am looking for advice. I bought this car in Oct 2007. It had 10500 miles. I have had numerous problems, most of them minor, that the manufactures warranty covered up to the 36000 mile mark. Had to have the line from the gas tank to the opening (where you put gas in) replaced first week of ownership. Replaced an oil level sensor. I have an ongoing electrical problem where the dashboard gauges will go completely down, then come back up next time you start the car (rarely happens, but still). Dealer cant find a problem. The check engine light comes on every 3 months or so, then goes off again about 2-3 days later. Dealer cant find a problem. I had a clogged fuel injector that needed to be fixed. I have to fill the coolant tank about every 2-3 months when I get a low level indicator. Dealer cant find a problem, no leaks. A month ago, the muffler failed. First major problem. GM agreed to pay for it and I'm getting it fixed this Saturday. BUT WAIT. The check engine light is on again. Whats new, cant get one thing fixed before another problem comes up. I have an extended warranty that may pay for some of the problems that may come up. But. Is it possible this car was in a flood or some other hidden issue could be causing these problems? I want to take the car somewhere to get it checked out bumper to bumper. Finally, my questions: What should I have the repair facility look for? What are some other possibilities that I am overlooking? Most importantly, What would YOU do in my shoes?
have the same problem?
