problem #2

  • 7,000 miles


My car has worn out three sets of tires since 8/7/2006 when I purchased it new. I had a flat tire today. When I took the tire off the driver rear side of the car it was badly worn on the inner threads again. It looked to me that the tire had actually rubbed something as opposed to tire wear. I was so aggravated when I finally got home I went on LS1@GTO.com and was advised by other members that the issue is called strut rub. I will be contacting GM when they open today. I am in the process of finding out what parts will correct the problem.

Under normal driving the strut leaked, at 600 miles on new Pontiac GTO. There seems to be no replacement parts!!! could be a safety issue at high speed. Dealer service dept. Told me to drive it until a strut can be found!! GTO forum on internet said there have been 26 complaints so far!!!!!!!!
