The transmission had rain water run down the tube from the grates in the hood ben mynett Chevrolet drained the fluid and changed the filters and replaced the dip stick and tube thy said this would do enough but now there is rust particles in the transmission and it was taken back for that they said it was nothing.the air conditioner has went out twice they said it was just a hose clogged two times in just a few months.the heater core was replaced twice in a 2 week time period the dex cool coolant has had a reputation of clogging up the heater core in all GM cars.the 4 wheel drive has went out twice this was from a vacuum hose around the transmission.the windsheild wipers have went out once.tbattery was replaced 3 times in a 2 month time period this had us stranded in 95 degree heat.turned out it was a bad alternator.the factory uniroyal 50000 mile tires only lasted 30000 miles and they would not stand behind there product.the vehicle cut off one day like it was out of gas while moving at 45 mph my wife barely got the vehicle off the road.the fuel tank had to be replaced along with the computer in the tank.( dot number: Tire size: P205-75-15 )

Car towed in three times last summer 6/28/ car stalled, electrical system problems, replaced battery, alternator,7 /27 reprogrammed PCM, 9/16 brakes failed replaced master cylinder. We've had other problems with this car from the start. Chevy can't figure out why the car engine started smoking and eventually caught on fire. Car has always been maintained, we have extended 8 year warranty. It was very dangerous, my daughter had taken the car just 1/2 mile to the shopping center and back when it started smoking. The car is totalled, she was not hurt and a neighbor was helpful by called the fire department. This was exceedingly dangerous.
