problem #2

Canyon LX

  • Automatic transmission
  • 18,300 miles


The battery keeps dying so we replaced it. Didn't work, took it to the dealer to fix on January 23, 2017. As of today 3/29/17 it is on the dealers parking lot waiting for a part that isn't being made as of today. The dash board module is supposed to go into production on 3/20/17 but who knows??. We expected the dealer to buy back the truck and get us another one. They claim that they can't get a 2015, 2016 like our loaded 2015 truck. they came up with a 2017 truck like ours and want $5800 out of pocket for us to buy it. We are not in a position to put out more money for a newer truck and a higher loan payment. I want them to take into consideration that GMC should have parts on hand to repair their vehicles. We are now sitting is this frustrating position.

For the second time in two weeks and since owing the truck for 2 months, it is dead in my driveway. Dealership gave it back after last issue with no known fix. Truck is back in for the last 5 days. It was running fine for 2 weeks, and then just ... dead.

I drive for a living...definitely aggravating.
