Every car is going to have it'* issues. I think after awhile of having the same problem I'd have a few people look at the car. And like someone said, the alternator seemed like the obvious offender for a couple of the problems, and that'* pretty common in these cars (I know mine has previously had that problem). You'd think people would be a bit more aware.

Very true. Every car has it'* problems. Some lemons like this one. But look how many cars here don't have problems too. GM is doing something right.

If this guy had so many problems from the get go, why did he keep the car so long? I would have got a different one years ago.

tell yah what, id buy it off him for about a 1000 maybe less, then id go through the fuse panel and find out what the drain was, then id go through the rest of the car with a fine tooth comb, and yes, my door seals have doen that, but thanks to crazy glue they are fixed!
Easy stuff

If he bought it brand new, warranty would have covered the work, and if it was in as much as he says the dealership would have taken it back to stop loosing money on all the repairs.
