In 2006, my drivers side mirror was leaking a black gel-like substance. After this started to happen, I noticed a circular "oily residue-look" in the middle of the mirror. It looks like oil was rubbed in the center of the mirror. Now all images in the mirror have a "double-vision, blurry" effect... and the mirror has lost the "dimming effect" for the headlights of the cars behind me.. a lot glare is present at nighttime. Dealers recommended replacement.. at my expense.

Chevrolet Tahoe 2002, transmission failure. The consumer purchased a vehicle that once had a transmission problem, the consumer was told the transmission problem had been fully corrected. The consumer then found out that the transmission was never fixed and the vehicle has been in the shop for a total of 3 times. Not only was the vehicle slipping, slow to shift and exhibiting a noise when shifting from park to drive, there were other problems such as not being able to turn the key in the ignition, the seat warmed light illuminated when the button was pushed, the speakers were cracking loudly, the A/C light came on by itself, the moon roof rattled and was leaking, the cargo power switch did lock the doors within 5 seconds of the cargo door being closed, the handle on the third row seat fell off, the cigarette lighter was missing, and the rubber stripping on the cargo door was loose.
