These issues listed below are troubles I have had with my 2002 Monte Carlo bought vehicle new 4/15/02 and 21/02, front bumper paint began to peel. Bumper repainted./5/02 rear speakers begin to crackle and quit working. Replaced./30/03 took vehicle to Chevrolet garage due to vehicle pulsating when stopping and the car having trouble starting. Front and rear rotors found warped and resurfaced. Cars fuel pressure regulator found to be leaking down and was replaced. 8/21/03 car pulsating again when stopping. Returned vechicle to Chevy garage. Found rear rotors rusted again and replaced rear rotors. Was told tires were cupping in rear. Rotated tires on 8/22/03 and found score mark on rear drivers side rotor. 8/22/03 returned vehicle to Chevy garage showed service manager the defect and was told the part would not be replaced at this time eevn though rotor was scored. S.mgr stated this was normal condition due to brake pad metallic lining. 8/24/03 contacted GM customer service about issue. Asked to have new rotors and brakes put on vehicle. Response was "GM is aware of issues with our brakes and rotors, but if there is no defect the part would not be replaced." I restated about the score mark on the new rotor and was told sorry nothing they could do at this point. 9/2/03 while oil was being changed two bolts where noticed missing from the transmission pan. Will be serviced on 9/4/03 repair pending. 9/3/03 vehicle having trouble starting again. Engine hesitates for 10-20 sec. Will be addressed on 9/4/03 this vehicle only has 24,000 miles on it. I need new brake pads and new rotors due to defects in parts. Vehicle has 7yr/100,000 mile warranty. Do I have a lemon?
