2003 Pontiac Montana Owner Comments

problem #1

Apr 012008

Montana 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 78,000 miles


I own a 2003 Pontiac Montana. On August 19th, 2005 I had to have the left front wheel bearing replaced, there were 29,852 miles on the vehicle at that time. The repairs were done by the Pontiac garage in altoona pa sine the vehicle was still under warranty. On February 9th, 2006 I had to have the right front wheel bearing replaced, there were 39,007 miles on the vehicle at that time. Since the vehicle was out of warranty the repairs were done by the monro garage also in altoona and paid for out of pocket. On April 1st, 2008 I had to have both wheel bearings replaced again. The mileage was 78,054. I have contacted GM and was told that since I don't get my repairs done at a GM garage that they would not reimburse me for the repairs. The case number they assigned is #71-618077441. I talked to two individuals: Penny mercer 866-790-5600 ext 12750 I then spoke to sherry hickey who identified herself as the manager. Wheel bearings in today's vehicles normally have a very long life expectancy. To have to replace them twice in less than 80,000 miles suggests to me that there is a major problem at the very least with this vehicle possibly nationally.
