SEATS

3/11/2017 - PARAMUS, NJ
VEHICLE IS ON STATIONARY STATE. (1) THE "REAR DOOR LIFT GATE WOULD DROP SLOWLY", BUT IT IS NOW BECOMING HARMFULLY WORSE AS BEING USED. I BELIEVE THIS IS DUE TO POOR QUALITY PARTS ON THE LIFT ITSELF. THIS IS NOT COMMON TO HAPPEN IN OTHER AUTOS. REPAIR IS INEVITABLE. (2) THE PASSENGER FRONT SEAT IS LOCKED UP. NO FORWARD OR BACKWARD MOVEMENT, ALTHOUGH IT IS RECLINING. IT DOESN'T MATTER IF VEHICLE IS MOVING OR NOT.

POWER TRAIN

3/6/2017 - ATKINS, AR
AFTER COMING TO A STOP AT A LIGHT, CAR COMPLETELY DIED. NOTHING WOULD WORK. HAD TO BE TOWED BACK TO DEALER. WAS SENT TO A CERTIFIED GM SERVICE CENTER AND THE TIMING CHAIN HAD BROKE AND CAUSED CHAOS IN MY ENGINE. THEY REPLACED THE CHAIN AS WELL AS THE HEAD AND OTHER NUMEROUS PARTS. THEY ALSO FOUND THAT MY MANIFOLD WAS CRACKED AND HAD TO BE REPLACED. OUT QUITE A BIT OF MONEY. NOW JUST A FEW MONTHS LATER, DRIVING DOWN THE ROAD AND MY ENGINE IS CLICKING AND TICKING AND SOUNDS LIKE ITS GOING TO FALL OUT. I CHECK THE OIL WHEN I GET STOPPED AND MY CAR HAS NO OIL IN IT. NO WARNING LIGHTS HAD COME ON AND MY OIL LEVEL MONITORING SYSTEM STILL SAID 38%. IT HAD JUST REACHED 3000 MILES SINCE MY LAST OIL CHANGE. NOT A HAPPY CUSTOMER. TIRED OF DROPPING MONEY IN THIS VEHICLE. ALSO NOW WHEN I GET IN MY AIR CONDITIONER MAKE A LOUD NOISE UNTIL I TURN IT OFF AND BACK ON.
