I have a question for all you.
I have owned my 2001 SSEi for 19 days now. On day 8, the Service Engine Light came on. I took it back to the dealer. The stated that they cats were clogged and would need replacement. It is still covered by factory warranty and will not need to use the extended PrimusCare insurance. They also said that the the cats,exhaust,.... were all one piece and would need a whole system replaced! I said GREAT! They said it would take 2-3 days to order and started the process. That was 30 Aug. With the weekend being long(Labor Day) I didn't bother them untill yesterday.(8 days) The service manager told me (I had to call them back, they never called me), "The exhaust systems are ALL on backorder and Pontiac is investigating the problem to see why so many exhausts are failing on the SSEi. So you have to wait until Pontiac comes to a decision."
Has anyone heard such BULL !!?
Is anyone else having clogged exhaust problems !!?
I just know that the SES light is on, there feels like there is NO boost anymore !!
I bought it because it outpulled the Mustangs I tested !!
Now I have a NEW car that runs like crap, SES in my face, still dealing with therapy from the wreck, lawyers, insurance companies, no settlements for the other car yet, said car still sitting broke in street in front of house, AAAAAAAAAGGGGGGHHHHHHHHH !!!!
My wife is bitching to take the Bonni back, get something else, this sucks !!
I think I'm going to call the Primus deal and see if they will let me find an exhaust place and let me pay my $100 for someone else to do it! Since Pontiac will not act.
Anyone have any advice, answers, inside wisdom from Pontiac ?
