THE TIRE PRESSURE MONITOR CONTINUOUSLY SHOWS UP EVEN THOUGH ALL TIRE PRESSURES ARE CORRECT. THESE INCORRECT DISPLAYS HAVE BEEN APPEARING FOR AT LEAST 2 YEARS AND TAKE A LONG TIME TO GO AWAY BEFORE REAPPEARING AGAIN. AS A RESULT YOU WILL NEVER REALLY KNOW IF THERE IS A PROBLEM WITH THE TIRES. OUR DEALER SAYS THAT OTHER OWNERS HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM AND GM STOPPED PAYING FOR REPAIRS.

ENGINE

10/14/2015 - HADDON HEIGHTS, NJ
A TAPPING NOISE WAS HEARD WHEN THE ENGINE WAS RUNNING - WHETHER THE CAR WAS AT IDLE OR MOVING. THE TAPPING WOULD NOT CEASE. THE VEHICLE WAS TAKEN TO THE DEALER, WHERE THEY DISCOVERED THAT THE #2 VALVE LIFTER HAD COLLAPSED INTO THE CAMSHAFT AND DAMAGED THE CAMSHAFT. ALL 16 LIFTERS, CAMSHAFT AND ASSOCIATED GASKETS WERE REPLACED. HAD WE CONTINUED DRIVING THE CAR, MORE DEFECTIVE LIFTERS WOULD HAVE COLLAPSED, CAUSING THE ENGINE TO SEIZE. AT THAT POINT, THE ENGINE WOULD HAVE TO BE REPLACED. THE LIFTERS ARE DEFECTIVE IN ALL GM CARS WITH THIS ENGINE (SEE SERVICE BULLETIN 10-06-01-007D).

AIR BAGS

10/2/2015 - FORT SMITH, AR
I'VE BEEN READING THROUGH THE COMPLAINTS AND IT SEEMS TO BE A BROKEN RECORD OF "AIRBAG" ISSUES. MINE JUST STARTED A WEEK AGO AT 50,000+. AFTER SEARCHING THE INTERNET, IT APPEARS THE NORMAL COST TO MAYBE GET IT FIXED OVER PERHAPS SEVERAL VISITS IS 1K+. HOW MANY COMPLAINTS DOES IT TAKE TO ACTUALLY GET A RECALL INITIATED? UNTIL THEN, WHY WON'T ANYONE DO SOMETHING TO SILENCE THE LOUD ANNOYING AIRBAG ALARM? IT IS VERY DISTRACTING, AND I BELIEVE MORE OF A SAFETY ISSUE THAN THE POSSIBILITY OF THE AIRBAG NOT DEPLOYING. SOMEBODY PLEASE HELP US.

AT STARTUP, VEHICLE DISPLAYS MESSAGE "AIRBAG FAULT" AND AIRBAGS ARE INOPERABLE. MANY OTHERS WITH GM VEHICLES HAVE SIMILAR ISSUES AND IT HAS BEEN TRACED TO A FAILED PASSENGER SEAT SENSOR (GM PART NUMBER 92225595). THIS IS A WIDESPREAD PROBLEM AND IS A SAFETY CONCERN AS THE FAULT CAUSES THE AIRBAG TO BECOME INOPERATIVE.
