Florida, FL

i have had problems with my pick-up since rotors were warped from the beginning(this being a brand new vehicle). there was a rattling noise from my engine; i thought were the valves. six years later i found out that it was the catalytic converter. it over heated my engine,transmission, and radiator. i was past my warranty period so it cost me over 3,000 dollars because of a defective catalytic converter. the year before and after my model were on recall,quit puzzling or denial for profit. i am now on my fourth radiator with only 116,000 miles. my transmission had to have major work done on it from the heat caused from the cad plugging up. this caused damage to my radiator,water pump,valves,piston rings,and seals. i have spent thousands of out of pocket dollars because of their defective catalytic converter. i love my truck but i am pissed that a simple part ruined so much of my truck,especially since they recalled the same part in the year prior to mine and the year following. seems real fishy to me. also,i don't know if this is an adverse effect or not,but i have been having major problems with my brakes. i have had my calibers replaced twice,my rotors immediately upon purchase,and my rear brake cylinders. all within 116,000 miles. i just replaced my rotors again recently. all of this seems really preposterous to me in the 21st century. i had a 1976 grand prix back in the 1990's and had less problems than this pick-up. i am e-mailing you because i am sick and tired of just taking it. i am tired of corp. just pushing us americans around. thank you for your time. *tr
