My complaint is my windows. My car will be paid off this Nov. And I should have already filed this complaint. The first of this year my right back window got stuck in the downward position. I called superior chev to get a quote, it was $249 just for the window regulator over $600 parts and labor. I had to have the part so I bought it and came in contact with someone that could put it on for me for about 90% less than superior chev in dekalb county Georgia. I always had trouble with the rear left window. I have my granddaughter car seat on that side. When I would pick up my son from school we could not roll the windows down because they would not come down. Then I had the driver's side down and it got stuck in the downward position. I had to take it in to have someone to tie it up will plastic ties because it was starting to rain. I have taken very good care of my car and it was not about to get ruin over some rain because of a manufacturing defect. I didn't and don't have the money to have all these windows fixed. I still can't get the windows down on the driver's side or the rear passenger side. I called Monday superior chev Oct 14,2005 instead of the part being $249. It is now 329. How in the world can someone come out of their pocket with this much money when it is the manufacturers fault. For me it is embarrassing to go through a drive-thru and open a door to pay and open again to pick-up the food. I don't go to drive-through no more. It's still hot when I wait on my son to get off from work and I can't lower the driver's window or the right left rear where my granddaughter sits. Could you please see if there is something that could be done and not just for me, but for other car buyers too. I have always bought what I consider american made cars and we need to do better in order to keep our jobs. I also had a tie rod I had to have replaced I believe it was in 2002 or 2003. I also had a lock actuator put on the car 4/30/02.

Vehicle was taken to dealer for a routine inspection, and mechanic determined that tie rods wore out therefore the vehicle would not pass the inspection.

While the vehicle was being serviced, the dealer discovered the tie rod was broken. (this was the third incident by a GM auto with low mileage) the ABS sensor and bearing was replaced, the 2 wheel alignment, set the caster, camber 120 cr 519, and toe in to factory specifics.
