I was told it had intermittent rear lighting problem (driver side rear lights would go in and out) when purchasing vehicle used in 2012 with160,000 miles, 90% highway. Had repaired immediately for safety, legal and state required annual inspections (or so I thought). Within 3 months/75 miles later, it started again. Entire wiring harness and light assembly was replaced, to no avail. Before I could take it in again, both rear lights intermittently stopped working. Passenger side wiring harness and light assembly replaced. It wasn't fixed.and before I could get it back in the shop, the front passenger side lights started the same thing. New mechanic assures me, " don't worry, there are many things I can try!" little consolation for the drivers behind me or for me from being pulled over by & ticketed or when I need the va state mandatory "annual inspection" sticker. They are able to get them to work long enough but again, at what cost? meanwhile, the intermittent problem moved to the passenger front lights, when hitting brakes I see that flashers start to work. All of the mechanics are "putting a band-aid on a broken arm". & II'm paying dearly each and every time. They now want to replace things in the steering wheel but I want Chevrolet to correct the problem this time or tell the mechanics what to do. This is a mini-van that I drive back and forth to the grocery and school, .5 miles - 5 miles a way 3-4 times a week.

My mother purchased the vehicle brand new in 2001, it has been a problem since she brought it home. Turn signals have never worked properly, headlights fill up with water causing them to burn out, interior lights don't work properly. I acquired the vehicle after her passing in 2012. The van only has 66000 miles on it and I've had to replace the lights 6 times since I've had it. When she had it she took it back to the dealership several times only to have the same problems happen again. I recently ran into someone that was in the same make, model and yr vehicle at a gas station, he asked me if I had any electrical issues and of course I said yes..this van is a disaster waiting to happen.. why is there not a recall on this lemon?
