problem #3

  • Automatic transmission
  • 57,000 miles


I bought my car on 7/21/01, it has been in for repairs 10/3/01, 7/12/02,12/11/02, 6/23/03 and 6/24/03. The problem is electrical and the engine as well. Chevrolet has run diagnostics many times but is not able to fix the problem for good. Everytime I take my car in, I am told it's now something different that has broken. My car will break down and sometimes if I allow it to sit for 10 - 20 minutes it will start right back up. For as many times as my car has been repaired, it has broken down at least three times before I take it in. My dispute with Chevy is my car is a lemon. They cannot determine what is wrong with it because diagnostics is unable to duplicate the problem. Chevy informed me that does not mean there isn't a problem it just means the computer cannot detect it. I have filed with the BBB auto line but because my car has more than 24,000 miles they say I am out of luck. Chevy is unwilling to do anything about the problems I am having with my car. My dispute is should a car break down at least 5-10 times a year?

The paint on hood started chipping @ or about 30K dealer said not warranty problem. Beginning Apr 2002 car intermitantly has had a "'surging" immediately after starting & putting in gear. At first just 1 or 2 times in 3 or 4 mos. Now the last 8-9 weeks it has happened more & more frequently, then 2 weeks ago the cruise control became erratic in activation & now won't work at all.
