Had the EVAP purge valve replaced today, at 74 bucks for the part and labour install. So far the engine light is still off, i really hope this was the last emission issue i have at least for a long time
Guess i'll find out soon enough, hopefully now i can concentrate on the other crap that is wrong with the truck.

Well it has been 5 day's and my engine light is still off. Guess the purge valve was the final part iin my emission and engine light frustration. Now i just found that the transfer case has a oil leak where the left front axle comes out. somehow i'm not even surprised, back to my mechanic on Fri to see what's involved with fixing that problem.

hello Mariah..I was reading some of the post here on Edmunds and wondered if you were an employee of GM with their customer service division ? I have had air conditioner problems with my Chevy Malibu since the first year of ownership. I have had the control unit the condenser and the compressor ( I paid for ) replaced by the dealer and the AC still does not work. I also had the throttle cable and pedal assembly replaced ( I paid for ) even though there was a recall for that problem. why hasn't a recall been issued on the AC problem which is systemic throughout the model years ? why can't the dealer fix the problem ? I have had the car into the dealership and had to pay for rental cars I'd say 6 or more times. can you help ? frustrated doesn't come close to my feelings about the issues.

We are looking to buy a 2011 Silverado 1500 ext cab with the 4.8 v8. With the factory incentives and GM employee discount, the best the dealership was willing to do on a LS was 24k out the door? What are your thoughts on this?
Over at GM the best we could get on a 2010 GMC Sierra SLE 1500 ext. cab with the 4.8L v8 was $23k out the door.
Are these fair prices with the Employee discount and factory incentives? Should we spend the extra grand and get the 2011 Silverado?
Any feedback on this would be greatly appreciated.

I got a 2010 Silverado Ext cab, LT with the 5.3 for for 21K out the door. Military price (similiar to employee price), 5K rebate from GM, $750 rebate from USAA. I think you should push for 22-23K OTD. The Sierra and Silverado are the same except for some body styling differences on the grill and tailgate badging. usually the GMC's are slightly more. Good luck.

I figure I received a 28% discount on my new truck. Granted, it was a dealer owner demo w/9k KMs on it. Nothing that could hurt it. Truck is absolutely loaded except a DVD screen and Nav. But Nav is available through Onstar.

#705 of 756 new vehicle dealer trade non-disclosure is it a scam?
Mar 27, 2011 (12:58 am)
I bought a brand new Chevy. The vehicle cost 44,000 dollars. After a break in the auto body company discovered the vehicle had been in two accidents and repainted on both sides of vehicle. The auto body company had to remove the previous work because it was done so poorly the paint was failing and in some areas they painted over dirt. Dealership denied any repair work and even looked at me like I was trying to pull a fast one. I called GM and they had information of repair to the brand new vehicle. I told dealership one and they then told me (OK) it has been involved in two accidents one month apart from each other that involved body and repaint to each side of vehicle. This vehicle was a dealer trade and dealership one claims they did not know it was damaged when they sold it they claim dealership two did not disclose this information to them. The vehicle was in the shop for 33 days while the dealerships worked on who was going to pay the extra to remove the poor very poor work that was done so my body guy could finish his work. The vehicle is still not fixed on the other side of the vehicle. The dealership who sold me the vehicle sold his franchise and left me holding the bag. I went to dealership two who shipped this vehicle across state line without disclosing these issues and ask for all repair work form or information they had on this vehicle. They gave me two work orders that confirm the repair work but they claim the customer was dealership one when dealership one did not receive ownership until two months after the repairs were done. Why have they changed names on work order documents and continue to hide this issue of disclosure. I have the documents now in hand that claim the selling dealership was the customer during repairs when in fact they did not even have position of the vehicle during the time of repairs and by the way this dealership is no longer in business but the dealership who has changed documents and was the owner of the vehicle when repaired with faulty work and sent it across state lines with out disclosure? GM and the AG from two states are working this and I have a question before I sue. The dealership wants to make it right now and I am not sure what would be right for their intentional scam to rip me off. What would be fair to settle out of court? Will they make an offer or just a low ball car detail and repaint the vehicle again thing. I will not take a low ball offer. I was scammed and tired of being treated like an idiot who thought he was buying a brand new vehicle and was duped.
