I have to turn channel when I hear Chevy's commercial on TV-they will buy back 2012-2013 car if you are not satisfied within certain time/miles. It is like adding misery to pain. I posted last year after my 2011 4cyl. stalled on me right after I bought it in May, then an additional 3 times. Computer did not register them. Dealer finally updated comp. after my insistence from readings on Edmonds. Then finally got GM recall in August and they at that point replaced sensors & celoids. Asked for a buy back/trade even for another car(I paid $31,000 cash)-Chevy district rep said no. At 21,000 miles I am finally getting 18-19 mpg. Talked to 2012 4cyl. 2 mo.owner at gas station yesterday and he is getting 32mpg already-happy for him but sickening for me as I got in my car. Mine runs rough and kind of jerky when it auto changes gears up/down. Just saw new comp.update on here to help with that. Called dealer this week and he had not heard of it, quoted #Pt10724A to him and said he would get back to me. Told him I was sick about their new commercial to Chevy and tell them I still want a buy back.....like it will do any good! Should have gotten lawyer last year! Is there a class action suit out there anywhere? They know they screwed up on 2011 Eq. I think. Service manager at another Chev. dealorship told me Chevy changed 2012 engine some when they changed my oil. I am doing all servicing at Chevy and keeping records too. They have not gotten any bad publicity about this car. Why?

PI0724A is useless it doesn't do anything now the newest problem I have is there is rust coming out on my vehicle it's very noticeable on the white one is yours white and if it is look at the back where it's most noticeable. I even went to a dealership today saw new ones in the lot with rust on the vehicle this is b.s.

I don't see rust in back,but I have a plastic back bumper in the back. I do see where my garage concrete is black under the muffler(?) pipe. I back into garage and line car up in same place every time. I do have a white car, but see no rust.

Tony, I will look tomorrow in daylight and let you know. Plan on taking it by dealership after reading about all these latest updates. I have not been actually on this site in a while. I read the one Edmonds automatically sends me. I can't even find my posts I wrote beginning June '11 because there have been soooo many since then over this past year!! Is there way you can see all your own posts?
