problem #1

Sep 062004

Rainier 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 4,100 miles
Power memory seat went to exit position in vehicle and will not return to driving position forcing vehicle to be driven with seat all the way back. Makes it difficult to reach pedals. Returned to dealer who had to order part (seat track). Part is not available. Called GM and asked them to provide a part from the factory, which they wouldn't do. Told me I would need to wait until parts process located part. Vehicle is very difficult to drive under these circumstances.
