Car wouldn't start several weeks ago. I've had a new battery installed, a new starting motor installed and the vehicle has to be boosted every day in order to start. After several trips to the garage the service advisers can not identify the problem. Every time I sit in this vehicle I have an anxiety attack wondering if it will start at all. The battery is continuously being drained and no one can tell me what is wrong. This is by far the WORST performance car that I have ever owned. I took ownership of this vehicle in 2013. When I purchased it there were a mere 50,000 kms on it. Two weeks after purchase I replaced the starting motor. In three years I have replaced brakes on front and back twice. Replaced starting motor twice, installed a new battery, replaced the dry shaft, the coolant hose, all brake lines and several fuses. The air conditioning doesn't work, the hatch back won't open and the rear wiper doesn't work. LEMON you think?

I was driving my auto and all of a sudden seen like the trans was going out, then it got really loud, then the entire electrical system lights came on in the SUV.

It won't hold a charge, it's just sitting in my garage. I need my automobile to get to church and other important places.

WELL, I GOT MYSELF A NICE NISSAN VERSA. HUBBY DRIVES THE DAMN CHEVY. TODAY HE CALLS ME HOME FROM WORK BCUZ THE ENTIRE CAR LOCKED UP, WOULDN'T START AND WOULDN'T RETURN HIS KEY. HAD BEEN GIVING HIM TROUBLE FOR A FEW DAYS AND HE THOUGHT MAYBE TIME FOR A NEW RADIO. BUT NO, IT'S A SUCKY CAR. SO HE WENT OUT AND BOUGHT A BATTERY CHARGER. CHARGED IT UP AND THE CAR STARTED ...WE'LL SEE WHAT HAPPENS. WE WILL BE LOOKING FOR A NEW VEHICLE. AGAIN, NOT A CHEVY.
