The only reason I am submitting this is that I know of 3 other Monte carlos in this area with the same problem. GM does not want to re-issue a full warrenty on the repaired part. We stood our ground with them and got a 50,000 mile warrenty in writing from the dealership, but only after telling them I would contact the attorney generals office...which I did anyway. Seems this is a problem they are aware of and are trying to keep it quiet. People should know that they need to argue with the dealer for a good warrenty.

The consumer felt the overall design including the engine, transmission, and the brakes were seriously flawed. The vehicle was properly repaired by the dealer. On two occasions, the ignition had gotten stuck, the engine lost oil, and the dipstick cylinder had loosened. The consumer requested a refund. GM did not agree with the above comment, and stated the dealer handled the situation properly. (model ss) mr scc
