Safety incident date:
Feb 03, 2000
Location:
N. Attleboro, MA

the car has overheated on 3 different occasions. the 1st incident was on rte 95 at night which makes for a dangerous situation. the dealer checked the car and claimed nothing was wrong. from this point on we watched and realized that the temperature gauge went from the middle point up to the top of the gauge frequently. we brought the car back to the dealer again and were told that gm said that the operating temperature was anywhere in the white zone. this past weekend we drove about 40 miles from home and twice the car overheated. the 3rd trip back to the dealer happened on a day that gm field techs were in the dealer service area. according to the service manager, these techs were aware of the problem. the temporary solution was to "shim" the thermostat. the service manager says that gm is working on the problem. my complaint is that the car can fail anywhere and gm is not telling their service people about the situation. i would not like to hear about someone getting hurt or killed because of a breakdown. thank you for anything you can do about this situation. *ak

i have had this vehicle since 3/99. in which time i have had to bring it back for transmission problems, electrical problems, leaking fuel injectors, brakes, non working cruise control which led to the dealer replacing the compressor. front end leaked anti freeze which led to another major job. i am not a happy motorist here. the steering column squeeked. they greased it. turned out there was a problem with the rackinpinion. i know something about cars and i know that for the amount i pay for this vehicle, i shouldn't be having these major problems. bandade fixes don't cut it with me. nlm

the consumer states that on three seperate occasions they have been left without a vehicle due to the engine throwing coolant out of the coolant resevoir, this results in an engine that was heaving and vibrating/knocking. the vehicle was losing most of its anti-freeze during the operation. on one occasion they found a leaky intake manifold gasket. consumer states that when he'd take the vehicle to get repairs, the problem was never found or there was an impression that the vehicle was okay. also, the consumer states that the cooling system is designed in a way that air bubbles cannot be bled out and would like his money back. *scc

after experiencing loss of coolant in my 2000 oldsmobile alero, i was informed that i needed a new intake manifold gasket (it was leaking) which would cost almost $700 to fix. although my vehicle is no longer under warranty, i feel that a leaking intake manifold is a premature repair for a vehicle only 3 years old. i have done some searching and know that i am not the only gm owner with this problem. this problem is obviously a manufacturer defect not to mention a potentially dangerous one. any longer and i would have had a ruined engine that could have caught fire or stalled on the highway. gm needs to take responsibility for this problem.
