Within 24 hrs of buying the vehicle my exhaust system fell off going down the highway. All the lights but the check engine light works on the dashboard. When you stop or accelerate the driver's seat moves forward or backwards slightly. Traction control does not work after the second week of owning it. When receiving for loaner vehicles all of them did not have working engine lights

Passenger side air bag/ the defectiveair bag sensor in the passenger seat will not turn on the air bag when a parson is in that seat. The GMC dealer said the car is out of warranty, so will not fix the problem at no cost. I believe this is safety issue, GMC should repair this safty violation at no charge.

Driving up on the hill the car jerked and shakes. Passenger feels it. It's displaying service brake system just under a year after it was done. It's now displaying, stabilitrak and control traction. After stopping for a red light upon the departure the car shakes and jerks. When it rains real hard, I have a leak on the passenger door. I feel like the car falls apart light after light. Some people says its transmission.

I continually have a message in my display to service airbags; I have taken the car in at least 3 different times and paid each time for the service department to determine what is causing the problem. They have been unable to find the problem and the message continues to display. I'm concerned because of all the ongoing problems with vehicle airbags. It isn't fair to have to pay for so many inspections with no results and especially for such a serious condition.
