Yep I'm with you too. On my 5 th column and they refuse to put in another one. Told me I had to wait for gm engineers to come look at it. Reall starting to get the run around on this issue. I've put 30k miles on my car in under a year so I drive a lot!

So far I've had a power steering motor replaced, they did new struts and shocks last year, new tires and something else last year to the fine tune of almost $1600.

As far as I know, I've had at least 2 power steering motors placed into the car so far and occasionally it still acts up. The mechanics told us when picking it up last year about a chain or belt getting ready to go out... This past week there's a noise coming from the front end when you're driving but goes away when idling or braking. I was also told that it's going to need new rotors placed on it soon...

The car is starting to become a money pit being that it's only 2.5 years old.

I was lucky. I had a ball joint replaced under warranty. SO FAR my car has been good. One ball joint, one link, 2 bushings and a steering shaft. All cheap parts, all easy to replace. I have 160,000km on it, so I'm happy so far.

cyl head

at 88k a code kept showing up , I don't remember the # , it just said misfiring in cyl #1. dealer said they couldn't find anything . they charged me $100 and said good by. went back later and was told it needed a cylinder head . no charge. they also told me my front end needed work. I asked how much $ ?? struts,tie rod ends and other items totaling 1400.00. A month later I purchased 4 new tires and had a 4 wheel alignment at another place and asked how the front end was? I was told it was good. that was 70000 miles ago. I refuse to go to a dealer and let them change my ignition key , they say I won't loose my remote starter. screw them .. thanks for letting me vent.....
