On this occasion we had a heavy snow that day and as I was driving on the road I switched to 4 wheel drive. As I turned the corner, thinking I was in 4 wheel drive my car went out of control when it hit ice and I hit boulders and landed on a tree. Earlier when we purchased the car we noticed a light kept coming on that said 4WD. We called to have it looked at but were told it was nothing to worry about. My husband called GM and complained about the malfunction. After my car was taken to the dealership GM reps came out to see it and agreed there had been a malfunction in the 4WD system. They claim to have fixed it but my car has never been the same. I hurt my neck but since I don't have health insurance never did go to the doctor. They reimbursed us $600 for the repair. My problem is worrying that there are other vehicles out there that could have the same problem. If mine did why can't there be others? next time someone could get killed. I was lucky. GM was hard to deal with and I will never buy one of their products again. I hate my car but can't afford to get out of it. I would have liked to sue them for my injuries but they really will only listen to you if your are dead! please check into this because GM won't call you and tell you of the problem with the 4WD. You need to get the exact details of the accident and why this failed. Thank you.

On 12-10 I reported lights on transfer case display flickered. Advised needed updated transfer case switch. Was advised ok to drive vehicle. On January 7 dialed selector to 4WD because of snowy weather to get out of my driveway. Started up driveway--fishtailed. 4 wd would not engage. Dealer advised, returned vehicle to dealer evening of January 7. advised today, new part unavailable. Transferring from demo model in stock. How can a situation like this exist" especially with no notification or recall"
