These problems have been with this vehicle since purchase. It has been returned to the dealer for corrective action. The reply has always been "rearend wind-up" is the problem and it is not covered under warranty. We purchased a three year /36,000 mile warranty to cover these types of defects, only to have the dealer tell us that the warranty will not cover this "rearend wind-up" as it is a regular maintanence item. I have searched the owners manual for this item and have not found it as a maintanence item, according to GM. At all service intervals the only mention of the rearend is to check the fluid level. This has been carried out by the dealer for the first 45,000 miles. I have since lost faith in GM and my dealer and have purchased my last american made safety defec tlisted.

Whenever vehicle is started or at a stop, can hear a clunking noise in the driveline. Took to dealer & mechanic knew what problem was. Used a "special" lubricant to correct problem. Vehicle still has the clunking noise.
