So, my 2013 LS died....

So, I had been having a problem with the engine in my 2013 LS, where it would misfire. The dealership (great people) worked on it, under warranty, and had to replace the head. This fixed the problem for about 500 miles. I had to take the car in once again for the same issue, and they decided that they could not find the problem, or fix the car to where it would work properly again. This was my first car, and they traded it out for a 2014 1LS. So, it is both good and bad (But hey, I traded an auto for a stick, got some extra goodies, and got a model year newer).

I didn't like them at all when they first came out, but now I almost prefer them.

Out of curiosity... Did you have to refinance for the 14? What was the details on that? I couldn't see a dealership just trading them out.

They gave us a very nice deal, as well as a good trade amount, then sold the new one for 100 over cost. We got better financing, and it cost $18 more a month than what we were already paying.

They couldn't find the problem, and GM wanted them to fix the problem independent of swapping the motor. Last I heard was that the problem could be in the computer or even electrical...

I have to say, most of this was because of the graciousness and courtesy of the dealer.

I don't think it was a buy back but it was a trade deal the dealer and the OP worked out. At least that what it sounds like to me.

I think a bare bones stock 1LS would be a hoot to drive as a daily car, should try to find one like 2012, a 2yr old car, they were just new yesterday, ?????????????
