Unhappy Red fluid on the ground!!! After 28 days at dealer for a whole load of problems

So while investigating the chirping sound coming from god knows what I discovered red fluid on the ground. It was about the size of a quarter. I took it to get gas and pulled the car about half in the garage so I could get out and move the jack stands and within that 30 seconds that the car was sitting there running it leaked a silver dollar amount on the floor. I am about done with this car. To make things worse I leave on another mission Monday when I just got home yesterday so I cant even keep tabs on the dealer and whats going on. Two more days of shop service will total 30 days and 4th problem ( was at dealer for 30 but two days were waiting on me) so maybe I will just try that lemon law to get my money back then I'll get a 2011.

Broken drive shaft, Bad slave clinder, Bad shift Actuator, broken spring behind pressure plate, bad pressure plate, now within 24 hours of leaving dealer... leaking transmission fluid, loud chirping/squeaking coming from some where.

I'm not sure if its okay to drive to the dealer. Its about 45 miles away. I think its best the dealer send out a flat bed to get it.

Isnt red transmission fluid? If you've had that many problems you might be able to get the lemon law into effect and get a new one.

NO not at all. But just like everyone else every once in a while I'll get on it a little like when getting on the interstate.

The dealer has 3 more attempts to get it right than I would probably start looking at the lemon law.

Well the dealer only has two more days to fix it before it qualifies. Not saying that I'll do it but it sure seems tempting because of how irritating it is

I say go for the lemon law as soon as it qualifies. If the car has had that many problems I don't see how they can fix it in just 2 days

Completely agree. Sorry to hear about all the problems you've had. Hope everything works out for you in the end.

Put the car back to stock ASAP !! You don't want to give them any excuses before you begin this process. Axle backs mean they cut your original exhaust off, but at least put the stock air filter back.

I'd have to agree. There's always one bad one in the batch. Get rid of it and start fresh. Just make sure you put what parts you can back in and use them for the next car.

Do you really think they would give me crap about a CAI and axle back? I forgot I sold the stock air filter. Guess I could buy one on ebay

The one thing with warranties... do you want to give them the chance to give you crap? I'd say go back to stock before bringing it in. You don't need any extra problems.

UPDATE:

Turns out that our transmission fluid is clear and the red fluid leak was coolant. The repaired the hose but they could not isolate the chirp...They returned the car to me for the weekend but they need more time to find it.

The transmission fluid on this car, and every gm car that I have ever changed, is red, unless severely burnt. But if they found the leak, so be it.

Mine is still all stock, I'm wanting to do all the mods, but watching this web site still tells me GM hasn't really got any better.
Of course I have 8000 mile on mine with NO problems. Thank God
