Since I have taken possession of the car I have had the following problems:
-Foglamps that keep burning out
-Trunk Springs shattered
-Gear shift lever button broke and popped out
-Rear Integration Module Replaced (Air compressor would not function)
-Door Relay replaced (interior lights would not come on at night when rear drivers side door was opened)
-Windshield was not installed properly (one side stuck up)
-Passenger door was installed crooked
-Headlights were never aimed properly (They have been aligned properly now)
-Leather on driver side seat cracked near head rest
-Paint on GXP door emblams peeled off (both were replaced)
-HUD Vibrations - Still not corrected
As you can imagine I am not very impressed after 10 months of owning this car.
I started at the dealership where they told me "That is what warranty is for"
I then wrote a letter (47 pages including diagrams - receipts, TSB'* etc) to GM Canada and the Regional service manager. I requested they buy back the car.
Today they offered me 5 year 120 km GMPP Total warranty with $100 deductible. They asked me if that would be okay. I havent signed anything yet.
Should I accept this or does anyone think I should look at hiring legal counsel and try to get them to buy it back?? Any suggestions.
This is an horror story you describing here.
I am wondering if this car would had not been involded into some transit severe damages and rebuilded as a new car.
One thing for sure...I would exchange this lemon ASAP to another dealer and
pass to another thing.
Such kind of lemon will become more likely an endless source of frustration if you persist to keep it.
Get another one fast!!! even if you will lose few K of $.
