I have an 04 Rainier. I bought it about a year ago. On my way home from the dealership, the speedometer quit working. It showed that I was going 100mph when I was only going 20-25. Then it dropped to 0 and didn't move again. I immediately called the dealership and talk to the tech. He said that the guy traded it in because he didn't want to pay the cost to fix it. I was shocked that they knew it was messed up and sold it anyway. He told me that it should have been fixed and to bring it in the following business day and they would check it out for me. I took it in and was told it would be $1700 for all the part and labor. They said the whole panel had to be replaced. I went straight to the salesperson and she said she would take care of it and the company would replace it at no charge. They ordered the part and when I took it back in the Manager told me that i would have to pay half. I told him I wasn't paying a dime and he could keep it. They finally fixed it at no charge but informed me that they couldn't be expected to fix everyones vehicle.
My headlights also flicker. One night they went out completely on dim and I had to drive home bright lighting everyone. I put a new battery in and there is no change. Today my gearshifter messed up. The shifter cable broke. I'm waiting on a replacement from the auto parts store. Has anyone else had this problem?

Were you planning on having the vehicle diagnosed by a GM dealership? Please keep me posted on any information.
