General Motors in Calgary, Alberta - GM CUSTOMER CARE (WHAT A JOKE)
Had a 2005 Pontiac G6 with electric steering problems that I paid the dealer to have repaired. My mileage was 8,000 to 9,000 km over the 240,000 km stated in their letter to allow me to receive reimbursement. I figured what the heck, maybe they'll give me my money back minus the 9,000 km worth on a pro rated basis. Customer care ( what a joke) said no in no uncertain terms. This is a corporation that I have spent over $70,000.00 with since 2005 including financing costs. Looking for another new car this summer. Going to send them my bill of sale for a new fully loaded Ford Fusion since they don't give a **** about customer retention. GM will not see another penny from my family.
General Motors in Sherman, Texas - Service department incompetents
Went to order a replacement mirror for my saturn, the parts person was not able to answer my question as to whether she was ordering the right part, so I asked the service person if they could send a mechanic and look to see what part would be the right part to order, she told me cause they were busy. Her answer convinced me that I will now shift my business to Dodge or Ford , every time I go to this GM service dept. I treated with no smile and get nothing but attitude form these people. What gives with these mean people.
General Motors in Dallas, Texas - Very poor reliability on Corvette systems
I have been given the runaround on my 2003 Corvette conv. Last month, an alternator repair was $1000. This month it is the ABS system for $4000. The car has 40,000 *** miles on it. 3 days with customer service and nothing. This company is a joke, the products are *** and I will never buy another GM product. And none of my kids will either. I wish I could shove this Vette up their govt funded ***! All these idiots had to do was help make this right, I bought this car, paid an extended warranty, and now that the tie has expired, they won't stand behind the quality of their products. $60,000 for this car and the ABS system lasts 40,000 miles ? Really, even Hyundai has the decency to stand behind their designs. This product is garbage!
General Motors in Oakton, Virginia - Yet another Junk Saturn Outlook
After many complaints about the steering issues with my 2008 Saturn Outlook I am finally resolved to NEVER purchase another GM product. Beginning around 60,000 miles I began mentioning the popping sound in my steering column. Unfortunately, I did not insist the service departments document and pursue a resolution to the problem. I was told on every occasion this was normal until the vehicle warmed up. The noise did seem to quiet somewhat, so I thought their assessment had some merit. I was just told this week that this issue would indeed worsen and my repair cost is approximately $1,300. This is in addition to my heater and A/C unit being completely overhauled to the sum of close to $600. I have already replaced both the Skylight and Sun roof at a significant cost. All these issues happened prior to 100,000 mile. I contacted GM customer service/Calvin to request assistance and was given no consideration at all even with the internet FULL of TSBs and complaints about these exact problems on this vehicle. After this experience, I am completely disgusted with the pride in workmanship of this GM product and have a much better understanding of why GM should be out of business today. Unfortunately, we the taxpayers will get to continue carrying this burden for many more years to come. My total loss including Glass, Heat/AC and Steering column is listed below. NEVER AGAIN!
General Motors in Calgary, Alberta - Chervrolet Cruze 2012
I bought a Chevrolet Cruze 2012 from main GM dealer Calgary, end of July 2012; Dealer's sales pitch was disgusting, though my wife made her mind buying this car. Later we found, they didn't disclose about block heater which doesn't comes with Ohio manufactured ones. We live in Calgary and all the other car companies like Toyota, Honda, and Ford etc provide block heater with their vehicle. Second major problem faced was during august 2012, we started hearing small click while using brake. We thought it was brake pad and we reported immediately to the dealer. Their service manager did test drive and found the same sound. He told us it will be fixed. We took car once service done, they said certain parts (caliper) has been replaced which is worth of $300.00 and I am exempted paying the same because of warranty. After few days’ again same sound occurred, it shows clearly that it wasn't fixed. Now they have passed the buck towards GM engineering team and till now it hasn’t been fixed. Representative from GM Canada calls up very often and conveys me that they are looking at it and there is no safety issue and she is insisting me to close the file. Dealer should have replaced my car at first place, when the problem was noticed by them, it was only driven 1500 miles and now it is 4000 miles. Even now they haven’t fixed my new car issue. What should I do? Any suggestions Regards
General Motors in Ontario, California - 2006 Chevy HHR Door Handle Failure x2
About a month ago, the drivers side passenger door handle broke upon routine use. As I was preparing to take it to the dealer over the Christmas holiday, my driver's side door broke as well. Doing an internet search revealed hundreds and hundreds of complaints about this problem. Chevy's answer? To ~finally~ issue a door handle kit so that the entire door panel doesn't need to be replaced. There is a TSA but my Chevy dealer "hadn't heard of it and a TSA does not mean a recall by GM." They were willing to do nothing for me. But this is an endemic problem to the HHR line and Chevy needs to take responsibility for the sub-standard part and correct the problem. This is a safety issue.
General Motors in Burlington, Ontario - My new camaro's paint
I purchased a camaro in November 2011, the car of my dreams. After only 4000 kms I noticed some paint missing inside the fenders and I have to say that the car was garaged and not ever driven in the slush or gravel. I moved to Trenton from Marathon and went to see a dealer here. The first dealer didn't even put the complaint through, the second one in Belleville Ont put it through but called it road rash. I traded a Impala on this camaro and almost 100,000 kms no road rash and it was driven in slush and gravel. I then noticed on the side at the fins that the paint was all pitted. I believe it was caused by the turbulence created by the ground effects package that came from factory. Why isn't there a way to get those companies who were bailed out by our tax monies to come good on things like that. Does anybody know a govenment agency that could deal with this or do we have to sue.
General Motors/2011 Acadia
Our 2011 GMC Acadia (18,500 miles) will be in the shop for the third time as of tomorrow within four weeks. Each time it has been to a different dealer/shop for repair. The first two noted two very different issues, but it boils down to the fact that the vehicle has serious electrical issues. There are numerous complaints/threads about the 2011 Acadia regarding this issue, amongst others. We have contacted GM corporate/customer service (which takes us to Austin, TX) and have been given the run around ever since. The vehicle actually lost power when I was on the road driving recently. I had no power to go forward, and could only reverse. We have serious concerns now about the safety of this vehicle, and the Texas customer service department, District Specialists, Jamas and Shareef (not sure how to spell Shareef, but I will spell it like it sounds), and Shareef's supervisor, Josh (512-386-0692), have done nothing but brush us off, leave us waiting on the phone for an hour (literally), tell us they will call us back at a certain time and then do not follow through, and give us attitude. The car is still not running correctly. Today Josh - who refuses to give his last name, refuses to give us the name of his boss and tells us we can't go above him, tells us to take it to the dealer (again) and if we are still not happy, they will look into swapping it out. Josh refuses to tell us what that process includes, or how long it may take. Keep in mind we have already been told this by Shareef, so they seem to like to keep pushing you off in efforts to not deal with you. Not one of them has seemed overly concerned about our safety. This is supposed to be our family car (three kids, two dogs), as well as our mountain car. We live in CO and are in the mountains about 2-3 times a month. What if the Acadia had shut down on us, or slipped out of gear like it did the first time and would we were unable to move, on a steep grade? Or on the mountain highways in general? The chances of us being hit and potentially killed are very, very high. There are very few places to pull over and people tend to drive fast. We are highly disappointed with the individuals we have dealt with in Texas, as well as Ramone who works for a Chevy dealer (who were supposed to have fixed our car this last time) on 120th Ave. in Broomfield, CO. Ramone seemed to think that the car shutting down on me on a highly traveled road was somewhat normal and a ''safety feature". He said all cars have problems, and we should just expect them. Needless to say, the run around and lack of general interest in our situation makes me seriously question the product I bought from GM, and GM all around. I should have bought the Nissan Armada. We are sorry to have given GM our business at this point. As a side note, each dealership who was supposed to have 'fixed' our car (GMC in Glenwood Springs and Chevy on 120th) returned our car back very dirty. Grease marks on the drivers passenger door and wheel (Chevy), and tons of dust and debris coating the interior of our car, which indicates they left the windows wide open (Glenwood Springs). Ramone at Chevy offered us a 'coupon' at a local car wash, but did not seem to care or think it was bad customer service to give us back the Acadia more dirty than initially was. Terribly customer service experiences all around.
General Motors in Houston, Texas - GM terrible customer service. Buy a Ford!
Update by user Jan 10, 2013
Still refuse to help.
Contacting GM customer service was a waste of time.
Original review posted by user Dec 10, 2012I just spent $4,435 to repair a GM defect that they refuse to take care of. The fuel injectors on the diesel LB7 motor are known problems. GM will only repair if it happens within 7 years or 200K miles. I have a 2003 GMC with 120K miles. GM would not repair. Had to spend $4,435 on a truck worth $12k. I will never buy another vehicle from Obama motors. Our tax money bailed them out and then they stiff their customers. Never again you *** My wife and I have always bought GM. Not any more! They cater to the Chinese and screw their American customers. Bunch of paid-off union traitors!
