Got a recall notice October, 2012, about a safety defect in the drivers door switch module. In January 2013, on the way home from Florida, in a driving rain storm, the windows quit working. Of course the windows were down. Parked, spent the night after putting plastic on all the windows. Resumed my trip in the morning. All was fine until I got into Ohio where the temp. Was 14 degrees. Called randy wise GMC dealership and made an appointment for January 8, 2013 to have this fixed. Took my recall paper with me. They would not honor the recall because it wasn't an "active recall". paid them $477.92 to fix the problem. Called GMC customer assistance center where I was promised a reimbursement form. Never came. Called them back on 1/29/ 2013 when I learned no such paper would be mailed to me until April. Finally received my pay back papers on 4/22/2013. Immediately took the papers to randy wise GMC, Milan, mi and was promised my money would be forth coming! today's date is 5/9/2013 and still no money. Called GMC customer service again and was told they would look into this matter. It has been over four months now! is this the norm for recalls" can anyone there help me" don't know what else to do except hire a lawyer...

I rolled my window down part way and it would not roll up. The window switch on the driver side which includes the door lock for that door did not work. My key fob would not work also. I have been having off and on problems with the window not working properly but it never did this. I had to drive 10 mile to my local auto mechanic and it all of a sudden worked. I took my vehicle back to my mechanic today 2/11/13 and he said I have a defective switch and that there is a recall on this vehicle for this problem. I contacted lunghammer GMC and they said my vehicle is not part of the recall. I would like to know what my options are because the dealership said I have to pay $105 for them to look at it and maybe we can get GM to do something.

I tried to unlock my car doors with the key fob. All other doors unlocked except driver's side door. I manually unlocked it and noticed an odor that smelled "hot". I proceeded to turn on my car and try to roll the window down which suddenly would not work. The entire panel on the drivers side door would not function. I drove about.3 miles and my drivers side window started to go down and then it stopped it did this again and then the entire window went down and I heard a tiny "poof' and smoke started barreling out of the entire door panel. I immediately threw my car into park, turned it off, opened the door, jumped out and turned on the hazard lights. Called the fire department and by the time they arrived the smoke had gone away they tried to start it and it turned over very quickly, too quickly that the fireman made a comment about it. It would not start. Then he tried again and it would do nothing. Had it towed.

Last Saturday my power window master switch melted in the middle of the night. I woke up Sunday morning with a smoky smell in my car. I took it to GMC to do a diagnostics test on it and they determined it was in fact the master power window switch. They told me that the component melted in the middle of the night.

While driving a neighborhood street in Maine, I first noticed my front, driver's side power window going up and down on its own. Then, white smoke started pouring from the power window controls. I pulled into a nearby driveway to pull the fuse, but it must have blown on its own because the window controls stopped working. I drove it straight to the dealership where the power window motor replacement was more than $500. Ouch! I'm just glad the entire car didn't burst into flames.

The vehicle's fuel gauge went to full while driving down the road. It started moving all over the place and now goes to empty upon fill up at the gas station. The more you drive the more fuel it reads. The gauge floats all over the place and vehicle has now ran out of gas twice while driving down the road. GM was contacted and explained it is a known issue and at first offered no help. Upon talking to several 'managers' they agreed to cover 50% because they know there is a problem. The cost is still over $250 for the repair. Why does the owner have to cover the cost of a known problem part" why is GM not responsible for this"

The fuel gage stays on empty with the low fuel indicator light illuminated once you fill the vehicle to full and then the check engine light comes on, after several hours the fuel gage will move to the full mark and the check engine light may or may not go out. Leaving you unsure with the amount of fuel you have in vehicle. This occurs even after shutting the vehicle off and on.
