Buy a better grade car like a Toyota, Honda or maybe a Ford.

Yes indeed! Welcome to the world of GM! Start researching your State's Lemon Law policies and, when you qualify, make the Dealer buy it back!! Document everything and don't let anyone but the Dealer service or repair it! If it quits all together call the Dealer or, if after hours, GM Roadside Assistance. If the Dealer has to keep it overnight, fine, you want a FREE loaner!! Make them have the headaches, not you! Hope that helps and good luck to you!! Jim

Tranny went 2X on my FORD EXPEDITION, Power steering went 3X on my Ford Fusion. Airbag recall - can't get through to the service dealer to get it taken care of. Don't go Ford. I agree with insisting for a loaner vehicle.
