Day 19 (not counting weekends)...

Just called the "new" service center. They said there is definitely a vibration problem. But, they are trying to get a laptop together so they can drive with the laptop plugged into the car for feedback and tests. Apparently they can turn off different parts of the system to see if that is causing the issue. They just don't know how long this is going to take to get everything together for the test.

I feel GM already owes me (some kind of compensation for) a car for the 10 days (not including weekends) I was without a loaner and wasn't offered one for my first visit. And I only financed a very small amount. So a car payment wouldn't amount to much. It's going to take quite a bit to get this bad taste out of my mouth. :(

I have a $6,000 beater truck with a $50 XM radio. It never cuts out. My wife drives a Hybrid Camry and I put a $50 XM radio in it. It never cuts out.

There is no reason a $42k car should drop 8 times in one mile (only with the sunroof open). It doesn't drop if the sunroof is closed.

Very poor design flaw.

Scott@Bjorn3D, I think you and I exchanged some emails back in the mid 90's. I was running a web site about a race-car simulator that was out at the time. It was kind-of a link directory to all web sites that offered information, repaints, etc. I think it was a Grand Prix or Formula One simulator. Wish I could remember...

Do you honestly think GM makes those XM Satellite antennas? Do you think the cost of the car should be a factor on your sattelite connection?

Drive your Hybrid Camry down teh same road, same time of day, in the same condition and let me know.

My Passat's after-market XM radio cut out all the time in between tree's.

I have. No issues. There are no issues with the Camaro either, as long as the sunroof is not open. Again, this is a design flaw.

I would contact Sirius/XM about it then.

I sold the Sirius/MX unit we had because it never worked when I was driving anywhere BUT the highway. Add a heavy tree canopy and it was gone.
Will see what happens with the Camaro, since I drive the same roads still. However I usually have the IPod hooked up these days.. so it might take me a while to notice any radio issues.

It sucks that you are having these issues. And is making me think twice about breaking my "rule" about not buying the first year this car is out.

If you (any one else) are not having this issue, it could be because you are so much further north that I am here in the deep south. The angle of the satellites may reflect differently on or around the sunroof since the satellites are at a lower angle in the sky for you than they are for me. Then the signal would effectively be going under the glass up there where it tries to go through the glass here.

Nashional,
I too have spent lots of time at the dealerships service department. I keep holding on to the fact that it's a first year. I understand your frustrations and hope they fix your car, if they haven't already. You posted over a month ago and I haven't read the entire blog about your car yet. Good luck.

The new service center called me late yesterday and said it was the drive shaft and they have one on order. So we'll see... I hope it will fix this vibration.

The other server dept. said they already tried changing that out...

Did you finally get a rental? Did you talk to your service department about having them file a claim to get your monthly payment paid?

I have a rental, this time. It's a soccer-mom car/wagon. :(

I'll talk to them about a payment. They should pay three to be fair since I only financed less than a third of the cost of the vehicle.

I called them earlier today and they say the new drive shaft should be installed this afternoon. Then they will call me to let me know if it fixed the problem (?).

If it did, I can pick it up tomorrow. If it doesn't, I can see this easily going over a month that I haven't been able to use the car...

Just heard back from the service center after replacing the drive shaft.

It did NOT fix the problem. And they don't have any ideas what it is...

I'm calling GM now...

GM is calling the dealer now and I've also asked for compensation. They said they would call me back after they gather all the information about my case.
