Complaint received via E-mail. On a trip from Florida to Pennsylvania super charger belt broke on I-95 South. Onstar directed me to a dealership for repair service. Serpentine belt idler pulley bearing seized. Replaced drive belt, super charger belt and pulley. Also, battery had to be replaced because of leaking acid from positive battery. This problem was not caused by belt failure.
