In 2000 my white 1996 4 door Chevrolet Lumina started losing paint in various places and has continued to do so until now there are large spots of metal showing. With otherwise having a perfect car, this makes for an unsightly problem. Other people have to us similar stories about this year, color and make of vehicle. Is there anythiing I can do?

Lumina

This vehicle has experienced a engine check light on or flashing many times throughout the past couple of years. It has stalled on the highway & had to be towed in multiple times. Bulletins apply but the dealer said they had all been done, not according to the repair orders. It is an on going problem that they refuse to acknowledge despite the fact they have experienced the problem. Letter has been sent to the dealer president without resolution & now one sent to GM.
