Recently I had by Chevy vehicle (Tahoe) in for service at the repair shop of the local Chevy dealer. It was overheating. The Chevy repair shop identified the problem as a failed water pump. The sold me a new water pump, and installed it. $630 later I have my vehicle back and on the road. This is the 3rd part to fail in the last 18 months. Previously the fan clutch and the thermostate also failed.
My vehicle has just over 80,000 miles on it.
I asked the person at the repair shop - why am I having so many problems with my Chevy vehicle, its not that old. Their response floored me.
"Many of the key components in GM vehicles are designed to last 50,000 miles. After that you can expect them to fail, and will need to be repaired or replaced."
That's just great! Parts on GM vehicles are designed to fail after 50,000 miles. After that you need to either - pay the increased costs to keep the vehicle on the road, or, buy another vehicle. That's GM's philosophy.
The only response I can see - going forward - is to buy a different vehicle, from a different manufacturer.
Please, please, PLEASE people.
Please stop buying GM's garbage, and save yourself considerable heartache and money.
Please consider buying a different manufacturers' vehicle, when contemplating your next vehicle purchase.
Please send GM the message - making and selling (expensive) garbage, is not acceptable. People should buy a vehicle from a manufacturer who has the consumers interests at heart, and not their own.
Thank you for your time in reading my complaint. I hope it helps you.
