This car has had thirteen garage visits under warranty so far to either diagnose problems or correct problems. Tomorrow, it will have the intermediate steering shaft replaced for the second time by holmes Oldsmobile to correct a popping sensation in the steering. Other repairs in this regard have been replacement of the control arms and the steering rack. The front brake rotors first warped last year and were turned on 08/19/98; they warped again and were replaced on 12/10/98. On 6/11/99, this second set for the frontwere turned again along with both rear rotors due to warpage; this is grossly excessive. I understand that Oldsmobile has discontinued these brakes as an option (labelled "autobahn" ) because of quality problems. Please investigate this situation for me as both the steering and brakes evidence of durability problems do not instill confidence.
