2003 Pontiac Vibe Owner Comments

problem #3

Dec 002012

Vibe 1.8L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 100,000 miles


The former Pontiac Dealer first charged to replace the window motor and regulator for $270. When I picked up the car there was still the pinging noise when the window was going down and still a rattle in the door when the car hit a bump. They finally found the problem was the door check link scratching a grove into the window glass.

problem #1

  • Automatic transmission
  • 75,000 miles

I'm angry because there is a recall for this problem of the window popping and the dealership will not fix it because they have no recall but it's on the web site of Pontiac, so what am I to do ? It's screwing up my tint on my window that I will have to pay to fix along with the window until Pontiac pays for this recall.
