I TOOK MY CAR ON DEC 16TH FOR A TUNE-UP BECAUSE IT WAS DRIVING LIKE SH*T. AS A COURTESY THE MECHANIC PUT THE CAR ON THE COMPUTER TO TELL ME THAT THERE WAS #4 PISTON MISFIRE IN THE ENGINE. I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT THE HELL THAT WAS. I'M BEING ADVISED THAT IF I WANT TO KEEP THE CAR AND GET IT FIXED REPLACED THE PISTON AND BE PREPARED FOR THE NEXT THING TO GO WRONG OR REPLACE THE ENGINE ALTOGETHER. I'M NOT DONE PAYING MY CAR OFF TO BE OUT OF THIS KIND OF MONEY AND IT'S JUST SITTING. GM OWES ME SOME MONEY!!!! DOES ANYBODY KNOW WHO WE NEED TO TALK TO RECOUP OUR LOSES OF THE MONIES SPENT TO KEEP THIS CAR RUNNING?
