I have a 2012 with 4.8L and 4 speed tranny 4L60E I think.

The transmission makes a clunking sound when shifting.

General Motors in Los Angeles, California - Unable to provide a code for my vehicle

I was being charged $50+ to have a dealer get me a passcode for my radio to work. I have the scrambled code and VIN; I also know how to imput the code, I just don't have it. Dealers are trying to make me pay to have a "technichian" take a look at it when its as simple as contacting GM for the code. I just need the code to get my radio to work, I don't see why I must pay someone x amount of money for literally just making a five min phone call and getting me four #s.

General Motors in Newark, New Jersey - 2002 impala Say B-Bye

This POS has caused me undescribable pain. i have owned this turd with wheels for 2 years here is what i have had to fix. 1.Starter 450 bucks 2. Security system locks out igntion, car wont start (leaves you stranded) 250 bucks for electronic Bypass did it myself or would have been 500 bucks. But it never stranded me again. 3. Drivers side wheel hub with abs senor. 400bucks 4.Catalytic Converter 350 bucks 5.Instrument cluster not working right (This was fixed by place that sold me this POS under warrenty(first 30 days after sale) 6.CV shaft and the same hub and bering that was changed 3 months ago 550 dollers. All other repairs were made after used car warenty ran out. Don't by one of these cars or you will be sorry. I still have a 92 caprice which is a wonderfull, comfortable reliable car which has nothing in common with this imposter of a car. How dare you besmerch the Impala name by using it on this this shitbox. I hope this thing ends up in Soulth America as a taxi . I will never by another American car unless it is a classic .

Starter = you were charged double

Starter system bypass could have been done for $149

Wheel hub usually costs under $200 to replace

Aftermarket cat converter uusually aroud $69 plus installation. You are being shafted on prices and I sugest you find another mechanic.

General Motors in Rochester, New York - 2008 Chevrolet Impala defective spindle rods

Purchased new 2008 Chevrolet Impala. Tires were prematurely worn and were rotated and aligned 3 times. I read an article regarding the replacement of spindle rods in Impalas purchased for police cars. No recall was issued for the remaining 400,000 Impalas. My car now has 27,000+ miles and I am driving on slick tires. It is just wrong that I have to pay for the correction of GM's mistake. The alternative is to have the defect corrected and replace the tires at my expense or just replace the tires and let them wear out again. My GM agency has never received a recall and can do nothing for my situation financially. This is rediculous!

General Motors in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania - Chevy Trailblazer transmission replacement - every 25,000 miles!

I recently took my SUV to the local Chevrolet dealership to have it serviced because it was near 75,000 and I had noticed a service engine light illuminated on the dashboard console last week. I purchased the SUV brand new and due to my limited driving habits the SUV has low mileage for a 10 year old vehicle. The service department called me a few hours after dropping off the SUV to explain to me the problem indicated by the service engine light. I was told that all four transmission fluid lines were leaking causing internal damage to the transmission and that it would need to be completely replaced. Under normal circumstances that may be a normal time for a transmission to go with the amount of time that I have owned the SUV and the mileage on the vehicle. However, this is now the third time the transmission has needed to be completely replaced and in addition, I recently spent quite a lot of money servicing the four wheel drive system on two separate occasions. The first transmission failure incident occurred in May, 2004 when the mileage was 23,895 followed by a second incident in January, 2008 when the mileage was 44,720. I contacted GM about this reoccurring issue and all they would offer me was a $1,500 customer loyalty rebate towards the purchase of a new GM vehicle. You think I want to buy another one of their defective vehicles and continue to replace the transmission every 25K miles. Thanks for nothing GM, I wish that the US government would have let you go bankrupt!

I have exclusively purchased GM products for my family for over 20 years (and have historically driven a lot of miles, so this leads to many purchases). Unfortunately, my latest purchase was a 2009 Saab (I would not have purchased a Saab if it was not part of GM)....

Glad I came across this. I had a 2010 Aveo purchased BRAND NEW.

At only 40,000 Miles I had to put over 2,000 dollars into the engine. It literally died one day..

My daughter has a 2003 Chevy Malibu that we "handed down" to her a couple years ago. For the last year the "Theft Deterrent Light" would come on and prevent the car from starting. GM is VERY AWARE of this problem, but instead of fixing their messed-up system, they...

Their system is a rip off. Their anti-theft system is more about us having to get it fixed, rather than deterring theft.

Car companies rely on dealer fixes to rake in extra profits. Kind of like all industries nowadays. Rather than making quality products that last, make junk that needs repair. I will never buy another GM vehicle.

I got the stupid anti-theft system removed rather than pay GM to fix it. It was more effective at keeping me from using my car more than anything.
