2016 chevrolet sonic warranty problem

in mid-august I bought a new 2016 Chevrolet sonic. on oct. 13 the power steering stopped working. I immediately took it to the dealership and they adjusted a connection and pronounced it fixed. the next day the steering was out again. I took it back to the dealership and they told me they needed a special electronic part that had to be specially made because there are none in the US. I called the chevy complaint department the next week to make sure they knew about the problem. after 2 weeks of no action and no explanations I started calling the complaint department again. since then I've been bounced around from one rep to another. supposedly now I'm being referred to a "Senior advisor" who will get in touch with me. on top of that, the dealership called Friday and told me the car was fixed. I left work early and rushed right over. as they were reprogramming the ignition key one of the mechanics came out and told me it wasn't fixed after all. then I learned that they weren't waiting on a part - they had been going through a checklist of repairs provided by gm. I no longer have any faith that anyone in that organization is telling me the truth or has any intention of honoring the warranty to be clear - this is a brand new car. I owned it for 2 months. it has less than 2,000 miles on it. this car has been well kept and not subjected to any sort of hard use. this is clearly a manufacturer's defect and should be covered. this car has sat in the dealer's parking lot for 3 weeks and not repaired. both the dealer and Chevrolet are well aware of the problem.

Did the dealer provide you with a "loaner" car? If so, then you are fine and can drive that car until they fix yours.

If they didn't provide a loaner, then immediately demand one---a loaner is standard procedure.

The Sonic is a very cheap vehicle both to buy and make. It should work ok around town once it is fixed, altho I would dump it once you get close to the warranty expiration period or you may find yourself with big bucks to have it fixed once out of warranty.

Sonic is the best Chevy I ever owned. I use to have a 69 camero rs 396 4 sped that was slower than my Sonic.

I'm not makin nothing up hear.

My Sonic can beat a big old V8 0-60 ! The sonic is a rocket and it handles great can do everything way better than my old camero.

Reliable Chevrolet in Springfield, Mo Isn't So Reliable

I recently purchased a 2016 Silverado from Reliable. The salesman told me all kinds of things they would do not one thing has been done as promised! They claim they put a paint protectant on my vehicle, so I said give me the info on it and what the warranty is. 2 oil changes per year for 5 years, give me a copy of that, no they want me to go online and copy it off the internet. Hello? I just spent more money on this truck than I spent on my house! I don't work for you so you do the leg work, what did I just pay for? I asked for a breakdown of the Vehicle I.D. number, the manager I was speaking to told me what do I mean a breakdown of the V.I.N. and that he has been in the car business for 20 years and he told me there is no breakdown for the V.I.N. Well Mr. Manager each number and each letter on all Motor Vehicles have V.I.N. breakdowns, and I worked for a major insurance company for 25 years and I actually taught people how to read the breakdown of the V.I.N. for about 10 of those years. The 1st digit will tell you where your vehicle was built or what factory on mine the 10th digit tells me which of 4 different 6.0 ltr engines my truck has in it. Oh I almost forgot, I told the salesman (who already doesn't work there anymore?) I have a vehicle that will be bought back by the manufacturer on Dec 15th so I needed my truck payment to be differed until December "oh sure,we do that all the time no problem he say's" turns out they don't but the manager I was speaking to says " I'll review the tape,we video tape all transactions for these dispute purposes" Can anyone see uh Lawsuit for video taping and recording me without my consent or knowledge? WTH. Every-time I call and ask to speak with the new truck sales manager, I get someone different. At this point I am being treated like a piece of dirt. Once they got my money it KMA baby! Oh, also they sent me 3 surveys on how they did, wish I had received them later than sooner.

Chevrolet - Customer Care Review from Portland, Oregon

I bought a new 2014 impala ltz out right for 32 thousand, and have had nothing but problems from the start. I have spent the last two years trying to get gm/Chevy to send me to a dealership that is competent enough to fix (and not break something else) my car, I am still waiting for this to happen! I have been told not to come back to one dealership (they broke a part of my car, never fixed it, and I can no longer go there for them to fix) ABSOLUTELY NO HELP FROM GM/CHEVY WHAT SO EVER! Ive had atleast 14 different senior advisors (lol, what a joke) assigned to my case, each time to do NOTHING BUT GIVE ME THE RUN AROUND IN THE END SAYING THERE IS NOTHING THEY CAN DO! My car has right around 18000 miles on it, the transmission slips, it smokes sitting in traffic with 70s trucks idling with NO VISABLE exhaust coming out, my lifetime mpg is 16 mpg, and the car has some kind of gas saving feature installed that ofcourse costed more, oil started leaking from it with 24%, oil life left, brakes are not consistent, sometimes making a grinding nose when first started, other times traveling all the way to the floor, it has unpredictable acceleration, the AC stinks so bad it makes me sick! The list goes on! I'm ready to put one of those "*** on Chevy" stickers on my own car! I now no why Chevy had to be bailed out of bankruptcy, they learned nothing! Never again chevy! Your everything is garbage!

2016 Chevrolet Sonic Car Review

2 months ago I bought a 2016 sonic. 4 days ago the power steering and brakes stopped working. This is a 2 month old car with less than 2000 miles on it. Took it to the dealership immediately. Chevrolet still hasn't bothered to ship the part it needs. I paid cash for this car and I have nothing but an expensive paperweight.

Call for early morning service , previous day

My name is Robert Shank 43 cold spring court palm coast fl. phone (386283****) I called in for road side service At 6;10 PM 10/3/2016 For service early morning -10/4/16 I requested to have the towing service set up at the time of my call . I was told it would be set up for first thing in the morning. I called in at 8;45 am and was treated like it was a brand new call. (so much for working ahead) I explained to the lady on the initial call that the service had to be early because I had commitments later in the morning and I wouldn't be able to be with the vehicle if it was a late pickup. I, was committed to take a friend to court and if he didn't show up he could go to jail. my pickup # is (6538****) Please advise your employees that serious consequences can result a/c of their negligence . Sincerely- Robert P Shank cell # (386-283-****)

2014 Chevrolet - Trax Car Review from Denver, Colorado

2015 Chevy Trax. DEATH TRAP. 5th Chevy. Almost every car has minor recalls, been there, got them fixed. This POS is enough of a concern, i wont let anyone else drive it. Brakes replaced less than 6000 miles. 2500 miles later, same issues are surfacing. No hard braking. Before they were replaced the first time, brake almost to the floor by complete stop. Right now, can feel them starting to give already. 4cylinder not a hot rod btw. Constant need for correction while steering, just found known issue for power steering going out causing crashes no known resolution or customer contact time frame. Most disturbing, SEATBELT MALFUNCTION IN THAT BRAKELESS POS (X 4). In park. No keys in ignition. No seatbelt disengage when I pushed the red release. I finally pushed and pulled and got it to release. Each time gets worse. Have to wear a seatbelt. So I bought a seatbelt cutter or 3..kicker. known issue with seatbelts during an accident, not normal operations. No resolution for the known seatbelt issue (same lock in but occurs during an accident, and air bags dont deploy) so i was advised thst my seatbelt malfunction was not a covered issue and blah blah. I know they have to fix my seatbelt. Those are my top 3 issues. If you know someone who owns a atrax buy them a seat belt cutter/glass breaker.

Dealership threw me out

I went to a Chevy dealership where I bought my car to get a simple floor mat replaced, 5000 miles on the car - it was bunching up around the gas pedal. The dealership said no they wouldn't replace it - I said Bullsh&% it is a safety issue- they didn't like my tone of voice and literally threw me out of the dealership. I have never been so humiliated in my life - when the service mgr. is screaming at me to get out of his store and the mgr. who sold me the car could have cared less.

2006 Chevrolet - Hhr Car Review from Portland, Texas

2006 Chevrolet - Hhr Car Review from Portland, Texas
I'm having continuous problems with my 2006 Chevy HHR, purchase in August 2015 from Sunrise Buick at Covington Pike in Memphis Tennessee. At the time of purchase I was told it was a reliable car even though the mileage was 142 890. I now realize that I bought a terrible problematic defective product. I began to have problems a month after purchase with mechanical breakdown in Nashville Tennessee; car was towed to Carl Black, alternator was replaced. Beginning in January to date, car has been in for repairs numerous occasions (3 times in May car had same issues for power steering, ABS, low fuel, check engine light indicators). Car needed repairs in June, July and on three occasions this August. I'm also being told that a lemon law does not apply so I filed a complaint with BBB West Tennessee. I regret ever purchasing the car since it seems like mechanics are not equipped to fix recurring problems with the car. I would like to know is there any legal recourse for me being sold defective car that is currently being financed through Credit Acceptance Corp. The car looks good but performs badly.

I will never by another GM car their cars SUV are garbage

I bought a 2010 Equinox in 2012 got a new car warranty on it after a year I had to have a new engine put in good thing it was under warranty. After that the truck became my worst nightmare I was getting ready to retire that was suppose to be my retirement car it became my retirement nightmare. To keep that peace of garbage running it took most of my retirement saving just to keep it running truly scared to travel in it just may stop anywhere. You pay 22000.00 for a car you can't travel in you have to rent a car General motors need to go out of business they don't even stand behind the garbage they make. I start buying GM products when I was 21 I'm now 66 and I'm through with GM for ever. None of my family drive GM they said it was garbage sometime ago should of listen to them. I got rid of that GM SUV not to never the rest of my life buy another GM anything. Buying Kia now they stand behind their product 1000 miles bumper to bumper warranty.GM know their making garbage don't care as long as it sell.Very unsatisfied customer.

OnStar Never Available When You Need Them

Was pulling our boat when the trailer bearing froze and smoke was billowing on the highway. Pulled over and pushed OnStar in both vehicles to summons help. I guess their satellite doesn't work in an area where it's high, surrounding by a thousand acres of pastures. I even pushed the SOS. Eventually a highway patrol came but nobody ever called me back. Same situation six months ago. Locked keys in and a rep said she couldn't open the car but had to wait 20 minutes for a tow truck to come and unlock. So why am I paying all this money?

Broken inside door handles

From the moment I got my HHR I've had problems with it. First I had a problem with the ignition switch. I asked the place where I bought the car and they said, "It's not a wide scale problem...But I found out that it was a wide spread problem. I had an accident, they replaced the skin on the front and back doors. After I got the car back the speakers on the left side of the car didn't work. I surely didn't want to take it back again. Then the driver's side door handle broke off. I've been putting my window down to open my door. Yesterday my wife got out of the car and the passenger side inside door handle broke. Why make a product if the product is flawed?????? I'm afraid to take the car to the dealer.
