SINCE FEB. MY CAR HAS BEEN IN FOR REPAIRS 4 TIMES. I BOUGHT THE CAR USED IN SEPT. 05 AND ALMOST IMMEDIATELY NOTICED THERE WAS A PROBLEM WHEN THE WINDOW WOULD NOT ROLL DOWN AND THE TEMP. GAUGE WENT ON HOT (AND THE CAR WAS NOT). I TOOK IT IN TO THE DEALER AND THEY OF COURSE FOUND NOTHING WRONG SINCE THE COMPUTER THEY USE TO DIAGNOSE PROBLEMS WASN'T REGISTERING ANYTHING. NOT QUITE A MONTH HAD PASSED WHEN I STARTED TO HAVE DIFFICULTY STARTING THE CAR, A FEW DAYS LATER THE CAR STALLED WHILE DRIVING IN A.M. TRAFFIC ON THE FWY. IT WAS TAKEN TO THE DEALER AGAIN, THEY STATED IT WAS CPC COMPUTER HAD TO BE REPROGRAMMED AND THE IGNITER HAD TO BE REPLACED. ON THE WAY HOME AFTER PICKING UP THE CAR, IT STALLED AGAIN, AND WOULD NOT RESTART. AGAIN THE NEXT DAY IT WAS TAKEN IN AND THE IGNITION SWITCH WAS REPLACED. A FEW WEEKS PASS AND THE SAME PROBLEMS START TO OCCUR, THIS TIME WHEN IT WAS THERE, NOTHING COULD BE FOUND. THIS IS A POTENTIALLY A VERY DANGEROUS PROBLEM, THIS TIME AGAIN DRIVING ON THE FWY. THE CAR STALLED, I MADE IT TO THE SHOULDER OF THE ROAD, THE CAR AGAIN AS USUAL WOULD NOT RESTART, NEXT TIME THIS HAPPENS I MAY NOT BE AS LUCKY. MY CAR IS AT THE DEALER CURRENTLY AND THEY CANNOT SEEM TO FIND OUT WHAT IS WRONG. IN READING OTHER NUMEROUS COMPLAINTS THIS OBVIOUSLY IS A PROBLEM. WHO IS RESPONSIBLE? DOES SOMEONE HAVE TO KILLED BEFORE GMC DOES SOMETHING ABOUT THIS?
