The right headlamp had moisture in it, dealer replaced the right headlamp assembly. The security system came on 3 time, dealer could not duplicate the problem, dealer replaced the passlock sensor, due to the theft system light illuminating.

Brakes failed for the 2nd time accident occurred have not had car for 3 weeks, have been waiting for GM to send inspector. Car is out of service for more than 15 days and GM has exhausted the time limit for action. I do not want this "death trap" (car) back. I also want to be credited for lease payments. I should not have to pay for manufacturer defects.
