Air pump failure - second in 2 years - informed by dealer of problems "due to design defect, location allows water into air pump, this vehicle is known for this problem" but cost to consumer still $313 part coverage 12000 miles and have 14000 miles since last replacement. Dealer said they would contact Chevrolet, never heard from them, I called Chevrolet and have to mail all information to them but I have already had the repair they only waive prior to repair.
