Purchased As New
I purchased the following truck new. Shortly after driving the truck the check oil light goes off. Off to the dealership to have them look at this problem. They give it about 1.5 qts and the problem is solved. Basically, oops we made a mistake in the amount of oil it was filled with... Then another month or so, the check oil light goes off again. Off to the dealership, nothing is wrong with the vehicle except another 1.5 qts down. AFTER DOING THIS ON A REGULAR BASIS, I FIND OUT THAT THIS IS NORMAL! I grant you I do load my truck up for construction, but I do not abuse my truck. I find it hard that I purchased a $35K truck only to add a quart of oil every month or so. No oil is leaking out the drain plug or any other signs around the truck, so it must be the engine. Would love to trade it in but the valve is much less then I paid for it. So, I will have to live with it.
In less then one year, I've been back the dealership for other problems too. A) Three times for a dead battery-car just will not turn over - towed over to the dealership. B) Back window just popped and glass went all over my two sons. C) Window wipers just stopped working-replaced unit/motor D) Transmission slips under hard acceleration-not sure what they did to fix but still harsh/jerky when shifting under no load-Dealership says this is normal.
As far as the oil thing is concerned: GM customer service is worthless in helping you out, Dealership is worthless since there is nothing wrong with the car. Just waiting for the long trip and the engine to run low on oil and hello new truck...
