2003 Chevrolet Cavalier Owner Comments

problem #3

  • miles


The contact owns a 2003 Chevrolet Cavalier. The contact started the vehicle and activated the air conditioning control switch, which operated only on the high temperature mode selector. There were no warning indicators illuminated on the instrument panel. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer for inspection and they replaced a component in the blower unit. Over a period of time, the heater and air conditioning system failed to operate. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer on two separate occasions for identical failures, in which the blower unit was replaced. The vehicle is currently being repaired again. The failure mileage was unknown and the current mileage was 25,600.

I want to make it clear I have taken over payments of this car and will have title when it is paid off. The car had been running great except for the A/C no longer works, and I was driving getting up to 40 mph and the car just died, I couldn't get it to restart it ended up being the fuel pump went out, it was quite expensive to fix.

Problem started same week I purchase vehicle brand new. GMC would not exchange vehicle, they just kept repairing it as it broke down. I feel very unsafe in this vehicle, they did not care. Clutch was rubbing against main line, failed twice. Rear lights burned out 3 times, springs on seats popped out 3 times, gas pump went out once, heater/ac went out twice, locks would not open, 3 times, pain chipped off bumper, once. Rear seat clips snapped, once. Headlights, water leaked in. Twice I had a head on collision in June/2007...air bag did not deploy.
