Paint/Locks & buring oil

I have a 2008 Chevrolet Silverado with 69,000 and my truck has always been parked inside. My paint on both rear quarter panels is rusting. My locks won't unlock or lock and now it is burning oil. My wife's 2008 Tahoe has had the locking mechanisms fixed on 3 separate occasions. I took the truck into a dealership and they told me to go to an autobody shop and get an estimate on the paint. When I got there the owner of the body shop told me that he has repainted a lot of Chevy's with the same issues. He said that it can me repainted, BUT will rust again in a few years, because of the metal that Chevy used on the them is not treated and it will just do the same thing. He said the only way to fix it is to cut out the bad metal, replace it with treated metal and prime and paint it and that is Very expensive and General Motors will not cover it. When I contacted GM they want me to set up a payment assistance plan to fix the thousands of dollars of *** engineering that they sell for $45,000+ . They obviously will not stand behind their products. We will NEVER buy a Chevy product again & I have driven a Chevy all my life!!

Classic Chevrolet Houston Texas Southwest Freeway Location Service Department

My 2007 Equinox was sent here for repairs after we began having leaks around the windows. We began by replacing rubber stripping on the inside of the doors. Returned to the dealer and was told the leak was coming from the sunroof. Although the Roof was not wet or damp the Dealer said water was backing up from the roof wells and leaking in the back seat. We said okay repair it, paid $200 plus for that repair. Next rain, carpet is wet and soaked and we return again. Once again dealer says it is repaired and replaced carpet and pad. Spent $900 plus for the "repair". Picked up the car again carpet is damp and car smells funny, wrote on invoice what we found upon delivery. Another rainy night and now we have a pool in the back floor. Arrive at dealer and tell them fix it and dont return until it is repaired and we wanted a new carpet at no charge, 21 days later they say fixed, we asked if the carpet was replaced they said no only cleaned. When it was returned we explained new carpet had to be installed because it was their fault for the leak. Total repair bill is pushing $2200 and still dont have my car. We involved Chevy Corporate and spoke with "the supervisor" Hattie at GM HQ. Rude, arrogant and as she put it, she had turned the issue over to the Regional people and since her time was valuable had to terminate the call. She never listened, continually interrupted, talked over us and quite frankly really didn't give a fried banana about our issue. Over the years, I have owned a '69 Chevy Impala, a 75 GMC Gentleman Jim pickup, a 76 Camaro, a 94 GMC pickup a 98 Blazer and 02 Astro Van and now an 07 Equinox. The repairs at the same dealership for the van's A/C was over $1500.00 and still does not work. It was delivered without all the screws being replaced on the vans dashboard. After this fiasco I am going to buy a KIA. They have 100000 bumper protection and no charge oil changes for the life of the vehicle. NEVER, NEVER take a repair to any Classic Dealership anywhere. They will repair what wasn't broken, charge more than they estimated and end up NEVER repairing what you paid for. We thought with a new service manager after Jim, the problems were gone, but I have been proven wrong once again by this dealership. Hope you find this helpful.

Chevrolet - Recall then problems
Update by user Jul 23, 2015

Update: I will never ever buy a GM product again. I fought with GM for 4 months on this matter.

Even there legal department got involved.

GM agreed to reprogram the transmission back to what it was before all this started. I had the attorney Generals office involved &...

2015 Chevrolet Camaro Review from Metairie, Louisiana

I purchased a 2015 Chevrolet Camaro on April 15, 2015 at Best Chevrolet in Kenner, LA. I drove off the lot at 9pm. The next day as I'm driving it to work, I notice the sunroof will NOT open and the passenger side mirror is cracked in the middle. I contacted my salesperson, without a return call. Later I was contacted by another sales person (not mine) and I told him of the issues. I was told I could bring it in (next day) and scheduled the appointment. Upon arrival and later 2 hour wait---I exclaimed I had to get to work. I was later rushed to Service, asked for id, credit card and insurance card. Long story short, now I'm WITHOUT my new car, parts ordered and will be inconvenienced AGAIN to have problems resolved and car will be in Service after 24 hours of having it in my possession!! I'm extremely unhappy, dealership was non-chalant and acted as though it's NO BIG DEAL. As a General Manager of a well known consumer electronics store, I pride myself on great customer service! This is frankly unacceptable. I will certainly be using social media on FB, Twitter, etc to tell everyone I know and beyond of this experience with this dealership and Chevrolet. What will it take to be treated courteously after spending $40.0 on a major purchase? Should have kept my Cadillac, but it's a GM product, too. Perhaps I'll rethink this entire purchase and future purchases. Did I mention my husband drives a GM Sierra truck? Should have gone Audi or Infinity...

You probably really flip burgers at Burger King princess!!! By the way how do you buy such upscale cars on welfare sweetie???

#973345

Yes, you should have gone Audi or Infinity you whiny penile receptacle. Did you expect the dealer to maintain parts for every car they service? Your car needs repair, it needs parts, you need a reality check.....you're not as big a deal as you think you are.

Chevrolet - Car Review from Nashville, Tennessee

APRIL 6, 2015 Found out that through codes p0463 and codes p0455 on 2005 CHEVY MALIBU that this is a common issue on checy malibu cars and yet CHEVY CORPORATION HAS YET TO RECALL OR EVEN ADDRESS THERE IS AN ISSUE!! No nothing is perfect however when it comes to dealing with the safety of the consumer CHEVY GM HAS DROPPED THE BALL BIG TIME and this is why I will never by another American made car. Consumer safety is not CHEVY/GM idea CORPORATE GREES IS! FUEL GAUGE ERRATIC CHECK ENGINE LIGHT CHECK GAS CAP  I have a 2005 Chevy Malibu. On March 22, 2015 I drove to Exxon gas station to fill up for the week. I filled up and started my malibu to see fuel gauge at full. Pulled out of gas station to stop light and fuel gauge drops from full to empty and fuel light comes on as well as check engine light. As I am sitting at light car completely shuts off. Had to turn ignition 3 times before it start. It act as if it didn't want to turn over. Went immediately back home. I have great concerns over this issue and I also google the issue with my car to find out that this is a regular issue with my year malibu (2005). However there is no recall on this problem nor the gas cap problem that I have been dealing with as well for over a year. Your company rather pay for deaths than fix the problem to prevent deaths. I will never by another chevy. 11bd92ef review #611781

Ray chevrolet, fox lake, Illinois is a scam

Pushed me out the door with a truck they said was a v8 and it was not. Sent me out the door with new truck, financimg wasnt secured, but was told no problem. 25 days later, still no financing and they want to repo the truck. To make matters worse, they didnt pay off my trade amd that vehicle got repo'd also. Do not deal with this dealership.so they let me take a new truck, without financing, no plates, and no insurance transfer. Its a nightmare. No help from dealer, they are not pleasant to deal with and will *** amyone.
