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
