i think you have a problem when you have a 2 year old car seems to be falling apart from the inside out. i originally owned my car for 3 months when the temp. gauge zeroed out from a shorted out fuse. the next problem was odometer went blank and showed me symbols in 05/1999, and the electrical cluster was replaced. later in 09/1999, my coolant system busted after a visit to the dealership, where i was told that cars are okay to reach the red line before it will overheat. most of the coolant system was replaced and tests done. i did not trust the work, and took it to another gmc dealer, to find that the coolant temp. sensor needed replaced, just 2 days later. now in 08/2000, my odometer is showing the same old symbols, due to an electrical problem. my problem is electrical problems are right in front of me, and i am unaware of it. also, some dealerships don't care to find the bad things, when it is warranty work. wyatt johnson does not seem to be a people saving people establishment, if you cannot trust them to find their cars mistakes.
