Since delivery, vehicle has left rear rattle. 4 attempts to repair did not correct problem. Also, sloppy shifting & noisy drive train, no traction control, many squeaks and vibrations. Also, windshield scratches easily (from wipers?) and vision is distorted. GM promised to have area service manager contact me, but no one has. Seeking replacement or repurchase of auto due to many different problems, and complete dissatisfaction.
