Electrical components are not working. Odometer, fuel gauge, oil gauge, battery gauge, temperature gauge do not work - the only gauge that does work is the speedometer. Looking at all the complaints, I should assume the speedometer will be going out. The temperature gauge could be very dangerous - it reads 250 - 260 all the time. You do not know if your are running hot or not. The gas gauge needle is totally upset down - we have to go off our "how many miles 'til we run out go gas" screen to determine how much gas we have. I've replaced the power steering pump - $775, the chip for the gas pedal (when out - you could not go any faster than 10 miles per hour $800), the driver side leather seat started to wear down @ 40,000 miles - now has a tear in it, the steering column makes a knocking noise, the dash makes a popping noise when the air conditioner is on, front seem to wear down fast, etc. I could go on, but.......... it seems I got a lemon. This was a $47,000 sticker priced car - you would think you wouldn't have this many problems. There seems to be a lot of complaints on instrument panel problems - seems chev should look into this - dangerous. These are family - children vehicles!!!

Incidents regarding Bridgestone P265/70R17 dueller H/T tires 113S M&S. tires have premature wear and tear where my vehicle only has 11,000 miles. Had an alignment done and the mechanic states alignment fine after having to spend $80 but feels this particular vehicle has issues with the Bridgestone tires and should be recalled or covered by warranty.
