So, about a year and a half ago, I went back to the dealership I bought my car from, century III Chevy because of a rattle in the front end, I was told when I bought the car it was a GM certified used car, and had a 1 year, 12000 mile warranty.
After I dropped the car off and they had it all day, I was advised that it was the steering shaft, and that my car did not have a warranty, so it was going to be about $1000 to fix...I proceeded to contact Chevy customer service, the BBB, and anyone else who would hear me about it, eventually they said they would replace the shaft free of charge
So I dropped it off again, they had it a whole day, again, and when I picked up the car, they said they replaced the shaft, but the noise was still there, they advised me that it was the away bar end links, even though I had just put them on, they were aftermarket, and loose
It turns out the noise was actually a bad strut mount, so I just moved on and decided to never go there again
Recently I started to get really loose steering, and hearing clunking while turning the wheel, and guess what is bad....the steering shaft, so they didn't change it, just kept the car for 2 different days, and told me a lie to get rid of me
At this point, I wouldn't cross the street to pee on that dealership if they were on fire...I can't believe they stay in business with practices like that, and now, I really have no recourse against them anymore, so looks like I'm changing a steering shaft myself next weekend.
