Hope your GXP does not turn into another Marauder disaster.
I hope so too...although the thing that really killed the Marauder was the move to Hawaii and the lack of proper care shown to it while in the hands of the gov't subcontract-movers.
The big hassle with getting the Bonneville fixed over here is the lazy approach of the dealership to getting it done...granted, parts take a bit longer to make the trip, but simple fixes shouldn't take a month and 1/2 to get done (like my DIC switch panel). With the onset of my steering problems, there are now three TSBs that this car has to go in for:
1) Steering intermediate shaft
3) HUD shake
And I'm really apprehensive about taking the car in because I KNOW these ******** out here will take a week to make it happen AND charge me for a rental car the entire time (GMPP or not, these guys still won't give a loaner for warranty work---they put you in a subcompact from Enterprise instead at $25/day). This, after making me wait a month for the parts to arrive.
Man,....don't buy a car in Hawaii.
