Summary of Complaint

I TOOK MY VEHICLE TO CLASSIC CHEVROLET GRAPEVINE DEALERSHIP AFTER NOTICING WHILE I CHANGED MY BRAKES THE WEEK BEFORE, THERE WAS AXLE GREASE SCATTERED ALL OVER THE REAR OF MY RIM, HUB, AXLES, AND BRAKE COMPONENTS. AFTER INSPECTION, IT WAS DETERMINED THE CV BOOT HAD LET GO ON THE INSIDE SEAL NEAR THE HUB WHERE THE WHEEL MOUNTS. MY CAR IS TWO YEARS OLD AND ONLY HAS 42600 MILES. I HAVE ALSO HEARD FROM SEVERAL OTHER CAMARO OWNERS ON FORUMS AND IN PERSON DISCUSSIONS. FAILURE OF THE AXLE BECAUSE OF IMPROPER LUBRICATION TO THE AXLE CONNECTION CAN CAUSE SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH SHOULD THE AXLE FAIL WHILE DRIVING. CAN YOU PLEASE INVESTIGATE THIS ISSUE AND DETERMINE IF A RECALL SHOULD BE ISSUED. THANK YOU! *TR

Summary of Complaint

WHILE DRIVING MY VEHICLE DOWN A STRAIGHT ROAD, THE AIR BAG CURTAINS ON BOTH SIDES OF THE VEHICLE SPONTANEOUSLY DEPLOYED. I WAS NOT IN A CAR ACCIDENT, I WAS NOT TURNING ANY CORNERS, I DID NOT HIT A BUMP, NOTHING. I WAS ONLY DRIVING DOWN A STRAIGHT ROAD. I HAD THE CAR TOWED TO THE PLACE OF PURCHASE (JOHN L SULLIVAN IN ROSEVILLE, CA) BECAUSE IT IS STILL UNDER WARRANTY. WHEN THE SERVICE TECH CALLS ME BACK, THEY ADVISE THAT THEY ARE GETTING CODES FROM THE BLACK BOX THAT THE CAR HAS BEEN TAMPERED WITH AND/OR HAS HAD THIRD PARTY PARTS INSTALLED. THIS IS A BUNCH OF CRAP BECAUSE I DID NOT HAVE ANYTHING INSTALLED OTHER THAN THE LOJACK THAT THEY INSTALLED FOR ME AND THE REPLACEMENT OF A PART (I'M NOT SURE WHAT IT WAS) THAT WAS CAUSING MY CHECK ENGINE LIGHT TO COME ON EVEN THOUGH I ONLY HAD THE CAR FOR 3 WEEKS, WHICH ONCE AGAIN THEY ALSO INSTALLED. WHEN I TOOK THE CAR TO THEM ON 4/18/14 FOR AN OIL CHANGE, I LET THE SERVICE TECH KNOW THAT MY SERVICE AIRBAG LIGHT WAS ON AND HE ADVISED THAT I WILL NEED TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT TO COME BACK ANOTHER DAY BECAUSE IT TAKES 2-3 HOURS JUST FOR THEM TO DIAGNOSE THE CAUSE BUT THAT ITS PROBABLY JUST A BAD SENSOR (BASICALLY BLOWING IT OFF LIKE IT WAS NO BIG DEAL). SO I SAID OK AND KEPT DRIVING IT WITH THE SERVICE AIRBAG LIGHT ON BECAUSE HE MADE IT SEEM LIKE IT WAS NO BIG DEAL. I ALSO DO NOT LIVE NEAR THE DEALERSHIP AND USE THIS CAR TO GET TO AND FROM WORK EVERYDAY SO I WAS ALSO WAITING FOR A CONVENIENT TIME FOR ME TO BE ABLE TO TAKE AND LEAVE THE CAR WITH THEM FOR AN EXTENDED PERIOD OF TIME. I AM NOW BEING TOLD THAT I NEED TO GO THROUGH MY INSURANCE TO GET THE REPAIRS PAID FOR. THIS IS WRONG! JOHN L SULLIVAN AND/OR GM IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS AND NEED TO COVER THE REPAIRS UNDER MY WARRANTY OR THEY NEED TO GIVE ME A NEW CAR. I AM ALSO EXPERIENCING CHEST PAIN CAUSED FROM THE INCIDENT AND WILL BE GOING TO THE DOCTORS TO HAVE IT LOOKED AT TODAY. *TR

WITHIN ONE WEEK, I TOOK IT TO THE DEALER--AT WHICH I PURCHASED IT NEW IN 2012--WHO CONFIRMED THAT IT WAS INDEED CORROSION AND INDICATED ON THE WRITTEN ESTIMATE THAT THE "HEM FLANGE WAS NOT PROPERLY SEALED FROM FACTORY CAUSING CONTAMINANTS TO ENTER AND START CORROSION ON THE LEFT QUARTER PANEL." THE DEALER QUOTED ME $3,000 TO REPAIR THE QUARTER PANEL. IN 6/2018, I CALLED GM CUSTOMER SERVICE. I WAS DENIED ASSISTANCE FOR THE COST OF THE REPAIR FROM THE CUSTOMER SERVICE MANAGERIAL LEVEL. IN ABOUT 7/2018, I CONTACTED GM EXECUTIVES, WHICH RESULTED IN A DENIAL OF ASSISTANCE FROM THE CHEVROLET EXECUTIVE RESOLUTIONS TEAM. IN 8/2018, I MADE A BBB COMPLAINT AND AS A RESULT RECEIVED CONTACT FROM GM'S BUSINESS DIVISION, WHO ALSO ULTIMATELY DENIED ME ASSISTANCE. MOREOVER, THE BBB HAS INDICATED THAT MY CAR IS NOT ELIGIBLE FOR THE AUTO LINE PROGRAM DUE TO # OF YEARS OLD. I ALSO RECENTLY MADE A STATE OF MI ATTORNEY GENERAL REFERRAL.

Summary of Complaint

WHILE DRIVING ABOUT 30 MILES PER HOUR AND THE MY STABILITRAK LIGHTS CAME ON, ALONG WITH ALL MY TRACTION AND BRAKE LIGHTS. IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING THAT, I LOST SPEED AND IT SOUNDED LIKE I RAN OVER SOMETHING. MY VEHICLE ONLY HAS 88K MILES ON IT. I ATTEMPTED TO TURN AROUND TO GO BACK HOME AND MY CAMARO SHUT COMPLETELY OFF. I ATTEMPTED TO RESTART THE CAR BUT IT WOULD NEVER TURN OVER. I HAD MY CAR TOWED HOME SINCE THE DEALERSHIP WAS ALREADY CLOSED. I TRIED ONCE MORE CRANK IT BUT THIS TIME IT WOULD NOT TURN OVER, I JUST GOT A CLICK CLICK CLICK. I MADE AN APPOINTMENT DURING THAT WEEK TO HAVE MY CAR TOWED TO THE DEALER IN THE AM. I WAS CALLED MIDDAY AND WAS ADVISED THAT MY ENGINE WAS SEIZED (OR LOCKED UP). WHEN I INQUIRED HOW COULD THIS HAPPEN WITHOUT WARNING OR INDICATION, I WAS TOLD THAT THEY NEEDED TO BREAK DOWN THE MOTOR TO SEE IF THERE WAS A DEFECT AND IT WOULD COST ME $1200. OTHERWISE A NEW ENGINE WITH INSTALLATION WOULD COST ME $7K OR A USED ENGINE WITH 55K MILES INSTALLED WOULD BE $6090.00(HUH???). I RARELY DRIVE MY VEHICLE SO IN THE PAST YEAR, I MAY HAVE PUT A 1K MILES ON IT. JUST 3 WEEKS AGO I HAD THE OIL CHANGED WITH A 40 POINT INSPECTION. I AM PUZZLED AS TO WHY, IF MY CAR WAS HAVING AN ISSUE, WHY DID THE COMPUTER NOT READ OR REPORT IT AT THAT TIME. ALL OF MY SERVICING HAS ONLY COME FROM ONE DEALERSHIP SINCE I HAD IT. THIS ISSUE IS CLEARLY DANGEROUS AND I SEE THAT OTHERS HAVE REPORTED THE SAME THING HAPPENING TO THEM. PLEASE RECALL THIS ISSUE. NO CAR SHOULD EVER JUST TURN OFF. WHAT IF I HAD BEEN ON THE HIGHWAY AND GOTTEN RUN OVER BY A BIG INDUSTRIAL TRUCK. THERE WOULD BE NO ONE TO TELL WHAT HAPPENED. MY SAFETY AND THE SAFETY OF THOSE IN MY CAR COMES FIRST. KNOWING THAT THIS IS AN ISSUE AND NOTHING IS BEING DONE ABOUT COULD EVENTUALLY COST THE MANUFACTURER GRAVELY IN THE LONG RUN. NHTSA NUMBER 14V34600 WAS PREVIOUSLY REPORTED BY ANOTHER DRIVER.

Summary of Complaint

I TOOK MY CAR TO THE DEALER WITH A FLUID LEAK AT TH PASSENGER REAR SIDE OF THE CAR.. IT WAS VERY MINOR, PRODUCING ONLY A SMALL "BASEBALL" SIZED STAIN IN MY DRIVEWAY OVER A 3 MONTH PERIOD. FLUID WAS GREASY AND STICKY. THE DEALER REPORTED THAT THE CLAMP FOR THE FILLER TUB WAS NOT PROPERLY INSTALLED BUT RHE FACTORY. THEY SAID THEY REPAIRED IT BY REMOVING AND RECLAMPING IT ON. ONCE I RETURNED HOME WITH THE CAR, I HAD A WHOLE NEW PROBLEM. GAS NOW LEAKS OUT ON MY DRIVEWAY ANYTIME THE TANK IS ABOVE ONE-FOURTH FULL. THE FLUID ON THE DRIVEWAY IS DISTINCTLY GAS, WHEREAS BEFORE, IT DID NOT HAVE THE ODOR OR APPEARANCE OF GAS. IT WAS STICKY, MORE TACKY LIKE A GREASE. I RETURNED TO THE CHEVROLET DEALERSHIP AND THEY INFORMED ME THAT I HAVE A CRACKED GAS TANK. THEY WILL NOT ADMIT THAT THEY INADVERTENTLY CRACKED IT DURING THE PREVIOUS REPAIR. THIS ONLY LEADS ME TO BELIEVE THAT CHEVROLET HAS AN INHERENT ISSUE WITH THEIR GAS TANKS IN THAT THEY WILL CRACK WITHOUT CAUSE BY THE DRIVER. THIS CAR WAS A CERTIFIED PRE-OWNED CHEVROLET. IT HAD APPROXIMATELY 23,200 MILES ON IT AL THE TIME AND THE WARRANTY HAD EXPIRED DUE TO TIMING: THE 24 MONTHS WAS OVER IN APRIL 2018. THE "CRACKED" GAS TANK WAS DISCOVERED IN AUGUST. PLEASE REVIEW. THIS IS A SAFETY ISSUE AND COULD RESULT IN INJURY OR DEATH TO THE OCCUPANTS OF THE VEHICLE.

MY 2012 CAMARO CONVERTIBLE DEVELOPED LEAKS (HOLES) IN THE WATER MANAGEMENT SYSTEM OF THE CONVERTIBLE TOP. THE DAMAGE APPEARS TO BE DONE BY THE ROOF MECHANICAL SYSTEM. DEALER REPORTS THIS IS A 20 HOUR JOB AND WILL COST A FEW THOUSAND DOLLARS TO REPLACE. MY CONTENTION IS THAT THE DESIGN AND BUILD OF THE CONVERTIBLE ROOF IS THE ROOT CAUSE OF THE HOLES IN THE WATER MANAGEMENT SYSTEM AND GM SHOULD HOLD SOME RESPONSIBILITY FOR THIS. THE WHOLE INTERIOR AND ELECTRONIC SYSTEMS ARE AT RISK OF FAILURE AND CREATES A SAFETY RISK TO DRIVER AND OCCUPANTS SHOULD THE WATER GET TO THE ELECTRIC SEATS OR ANY ELECTRIC WIRING UNDER THE CARPET.. ALSO RENDERS THE CAR UNSELLABLE.

Summary of Complaint

2012 CAMARO WITH 56000 MILES ON IT HAS A PROBLEM WITH HEATER CORE BEING PLUGGED. CAUSES THE WINDSHIELD TO FOG OVER SUDDENLY LOSING VISIBILITY WHILE VEHICLE IS IN MOTION. THIS SHOULD NOT BE HAPPENING ON A CAR THATS ONLY A FEW YEARS OLD WITH LOW MILES. I HAVE DONE RESEARCH ON THE INTERNET AND GOOGLE AND THERE ARE A LOT OF NEWER MODEL CAMAROS THAT ARE EXPERIENCING THIS PROBLEM BUT GM REFUSES TO ADMIT THERE IS A PROBLEM. I JUST HAD TO PAY 1400.00 OUT OF POCKET WITH NO HELP OR ASSISTANCE FROM GM. THIS IS A SAFETY CONCERN SHOULD THE WINDOW FOG UP TO THE POINT OF NOT BEING ABLE TO PROPERLY SEE. I AM REPORTING THIS ON BEHALF OF OTHER DRIVERS OF NEWER MODEL CAMAROS WHO ARE HAVING THIS ISSUE AND ON THE RECOMMENDATION OF MY REGULAR MECHANIC WHO SAID WITH THE NUMBER OF REPORTED PROBLEMS WITH THIS PART IT SHOULD BE INVESTIGATED.

THERE SHOULD BE A RECALL ON ALL CHEVROLET & GM CARS.
