Have had problems with the windshield wipers from the beginning. I would be driving in pouring-down rain and the wipers would go out causing me to have to pull over. Right now they do not work at all. I had to work on my brakes the first year and a couple of times thereafter. I recently had to have my air-conditioner done. The latest was my water pump that I fixed myself. The worse was my motor. I had been stalled a number of times till finally it wouldn't go at all. I had it towed to michael holley Chevrolet in lakeland (the town I worked in). They refused to honor my smartcare saying I had not changed the oil. That was not true since I had changed it myself and had it changed also. They wanted over 3000 for a new motor. I am and was still paying on my truck and did not have that much cash. I had to tow it at my mothers and park it. I was able to change the oil and noticed that the Chevrolet dealers had removed the alternator belt and had left it loose. That did not give me any confidence in them. 4 months later my mother's car was totalled and she paid for me to get a motor from an amoco dealer. In September of 1999 my mother was surfing the net and found out that there had been recalls on this vehicle almost from the first and I have never been notified at all. I wrote to the home office in early September but received no answer. I still owe 2 years payments. If I had been traveling on the highway when my motor went out on me something bad could have very well happened. I feel sure that I will never trust in Chevy's products again.
