The fuel injection pump failed intermittently, causing the vehicle to stall. Dealership repaired the problem, but problem recurred.

This is a chronic problem with my vehicle. It is not as wide spread as G.M. would like me to believe. I know others in California with the identicle vehicle as me with no problems. G.M. blames the government for the gas additives. I am the one who is stranded because of this problem. I bought a new vehicle for dependability. I have a car that can and will break down any where and at any time and I am still making payments on it. I have written to the heads of the corperate offices at G.M. with my concerns and complaints but they have yet to repond to me seriously. They have customer service contact me. Customer service people can not solve this problem!! I end up more frustrated after speaking to them. I know that they are only doing their job and can only do so much. I need a real solution to this potentially dangerous condition that my car had when I bought it. I want the dependability that I had expected, when I bought this car. For my safety and the safety of my family. Thank you for any assistance you can provide me with in this frustrating matter. Sincerely yours, karen ekizian. No safety defect listed.
