problem #2

There have been two issues with my vehicle that I feel should be recalls due to the same problems that has happened to my car has also happend to other Cavalier owners. Recently the fuel tank gauge went out without any kind of warning, which cased me to run out of gas and have to call a family member to pick me up. The second issue is the plastic behind the windsheild on the dashboard cracked in two different places. I work with a girl that has the same vehicle I do and both of these issues also happend to her car. I just think these issues should be looked into. Its kinda weird that the same malfunctions happen to two cars of the same make and model. Another issue is I had never received a recall notice on the failed ignition switch. I had to find out about it online when looking for a new part for my car. Thats kind of scary! thanks you for your time, and I hope you take great consideration in my issues.

Jan.13,2003 car won't start. Car was towed to Liberty chevorlet. Was told car needed battery and starter. Also told if proper test was done, potamkin should have picked up the problem. Currently having problems with car. Car stops while driving. Liberty unable to find problem. Also since I purchased the car, new, my interior lights flash on and off when I brake hard or go over bumps in road. Either dealer unable to find out why.
