Sometimes I'm really proud of you kids.....Your the greatest.
Some of your comments here WTGMF are uncalled for against people that know a crapload more about more about GM, it'* engines and drivetrains than you do. And help thousands of people with problems, and make this Forum what it is.
As I mentioned in my very first post here, you bought a salvaged vehicle for a greatly reduced price with full knowledge of the liabilities of such. Then come here to vent your "crapped your diaper" and GM won't change it BS. (Which they are well within their rights to do) The Forum and an extension of GM has responded and even tried to help you with this just because we are indeed a collection of pretty nice people.
I rarely do this because I like to see the Forum grow and stay tolerant to other views. But you have run out a rope here and the noose is tight. Welcome to Purgatory, and enjoy the stay. It is permanent.
If I were GM, GM Media, or GMPP, I'd send you to the curb as well with your attitude. Case closed for me.
