The automatic transmission shifter may fail causing the ignition key to become stuck in the ignition lock cylinder. GM has recalled 2009 models for a shift cable issue which may or may not contribute to this issue. For more information on the recall please click here»

Exhaust & Emissions -- Verified

Illumination of the Check Engine Light can be caused by a loose or worn gas cap.

Maintenance -- Verified

Brake fluid can become dirty and may cause problems in the brake system; it should be flushed every 60,000 miles.

Heating & Air Conditioning -- Verified

Extended life coolant may become contaminated and require cooling system service before the recommended 100,000 miles.

Our technicians tell us that the recommended spark plug life is 100k miles. The ignition coils are mounted directly on top of the spark plugs, as a result there are not longer any spark plug wires to fail.
