I have had numerous problems with my Firebird which I bought less than a year ago brand new from the dealer. I don not have the exact dates and mileage of the problems at hand. In short the following have been reported to the purchasing dealer and/or repaired: Roters(brakes) 2X, antena 3 or 4X, open circuit(remote keyless entry-trunk/windows/doors and alarm)1 or2X, cd/stereo still isn't repaired and unsure of problem, suspension off, left blinker malfunctioning, misc. Fuses continuously blown, power steering column leak.....I think thats it! that's enough though.

The accelerator pedal was stuck, the vehicle was taken to 3 different dealers, who were unable to duplicate the problem. There was a noise in the drivetrain, the front back of the upper seat was discolored(replaced), foam from the driver's seat had come apart, the gas pedal would stick with of without the cruise control engaged from stop, after a heavy rain storm, the horn would sound different, when the vehicle was driven at the speed of 50 mph, there would be a rumble noise in the front wheel, the driveshaft was out of balance(warranty replaced), and the driver's window was inoperative(replaced the power window regulator).
