If you send me your VIN number I can look up your vehicle history and figure out if you indeed have the Emission Select Warranty you mentioned previously, and we can work towards seeking a more satisfactory resolution for your concern. You can continue to message me at socialmediagm.com ATTN Amber. I look forward to your response.

You are at the eighth person from GM who has not answered my question. Can you not look up the warranty on a 2006 Colorado? None of the other seven I spoke to bothered to do that either. What do you consider the conditions for having the warranty apply? Is there or is there not an extended courtesy warranty for these engine failures? At this point, I feel like I am about to embark on another fruitless conversation with a GM flak and I am pretty much fed up. I swore I would never buy another GM after the door fell off my Baretta, but I was fooled and now I'm sorrowful.
By the way, I have no idea what it means to message you.

They need the VIN to look up your Colorado because it may have equipment that will either qualify or disqualify the truck for the warranty extension. It's apparently not an across-the-board warranty.
"Messaging" Amber means contact her via email at the address in her post, with the subject line to her attention.

I can look up the warranty on a 2006 Colorado, but I do need your VIN number in order to do this. As kcram mentioned, the warranties do apply on a case by case basis. By providing your VIN I can see what warranties are still current for your vehicle. If you'd like to "message" me, we are available through email at the following address: socialmediagm.com (ATTN Amber). Please let me know if you have any further questions.

#702 of 707 Colorado P0017
May 16, 2013 (11:50 am)
I own currently has 32,500 miles on it. I follow all recommended maintenance schedules and use only full synthetic oil. About a month ago, a check engine light came on producing a P0017 code. A quick search of the web showed this to be a popular problem with your vehicle.
While trying to diagnose the problem the following was replaced:
-Oil was changed (early of schedule),
-Camshaft actuator solenoid valve
-Camshaft position sensor
-Exhaust Cam Actuator
The dealership said that they have heard of “this problem” and have seen other Colorado’s like mine, but could not tell me why a Timing Chain would fail so early in the life of a vehicle. I have driven other GM vehicles and always have been happy with what I thought was a quality, affordable American vehicle. In the case of my Colorado, I feel as though I have unluckily bought a truck that will continue to break down. I have found many Technical Support Bulletins online describing the variety of related problems, but have found nothing as to why these problems continue. Is the design of the engine or production of the parts at fault?
To say the least, I’m unhappy with the quality of vehicle you have produced and am considering selling it before it breaks down again and my power train warranty expires in the upcoming months. Can anything be done to restore my faith in your product and company?

#707 of 707 GMC Canyon Cylinder Head Defective at 34K miles
May 20, 2013 (1:04 pm)
Our gorgeous '05 Canyon with THIRTY-FOUR THOUSAND miles requires replace of cylinder head. GMC issued extended warranty to 7 years/100,000 miles--WHICH SHOULD HAVE BEEN A RECALL and not an extended warranty. We've been through the GMC Customer Service saga from hell for almost two months (and without our truck), passed off from one "District Specialist" to the next, only to end up with them covering a mere 50% of THEIR $1,800 MANUFACTURING DEFECT.
IT GETS WORSE: The replacement cylinder head that the dealership received from GM WAS ALSO DEFECTIVE!!! We paid $41K for this truck, bought it because our last GMC had 180,000 miles on it with no major problems, have supported GMC religiously for 20 years, only to find out that they're willing to lose a loyal customer at the cost of $900. Absolutely UNACCEPTABLE customer service, especially from GMC, and they've made it perfectly clear that SELLING is their number one priority and not customer service. What happened to their customer service "taskforce"? We will not be part of the "GMC Family" again until someone at GMC takes responsibility for reimbursing us for this nightmare and we will continue to warn others about it in every forum possible. Do the RIGHT THING, GMC, and back up your product so that we can be pro-GMC again.
