The keyless entry no longer functions at all. Cost to repair estimated at a minimum $500, probable computer "gone bad" this car has had so many "issues" both minor and major it is no wonder GM motors is struggling! I will NEVER buy an American car again. This vehicle at this same time has a faulty gas gauge sensor. Cost for sensor alone is $464, and estimate for labor (high) is about $200. I am looking at almost $1,200 in repairs for a vehicle with less than 85,000 miles. The power windows have never worked properly, the need lubricated often. I had the dealer extend the warranty on the power windows to 100,000 miles as it had been in the repair shop 18 times for just this one issue. ABS light appears sporadically for no reason, (probably related to the computer issue?) The CD player failed and was replaced at 55,000 miles. I have always owned American cars, truly believe in the American Way but this has been one of the most frustrating vehicles I have ever owned. This car needs to last a few more years until kids are out of college then I will dump this car for something else foreign. Thanks for listening!
