problem #1

Jan 172006

Sunfire 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 42,000 miles
Was not notified by Pontiac that my sunroof should be serviced yearly to prevent leaks. I contacted the dealer where I purchased the car and was told GM has no recommended service yet everywhere I have asked has told me it needs serviced or you will have leaks. Dealer said there is nothing they can do for me. Now I have clogged drain lines and have water leaking into my trunk, and the water has damaged my back speakers. Also, I am very upset with the design of the shifter light. I have called around and the only place I can have it fixed at is the dealer and I am looking at $130 just in labor for a bad light bulb. I think it is unfair to your customers to have a part, such as a light that will burn out, unreplaceable by anyone but the dealers who then in turn charge outrageous prices to do the repairs. So now I have water in my trunk no back speakers and can't see what gear I am in at night on a vehicle that is only 3 years old with 42000 miles on it. I also have been told that the vehicle looks wrecked and I am having to replace front struts and mounts as well as rack and pinion. I never wrecked this vehicle and no one else drives my car!
