Chevrolet ProblemsErratic Shifting of the Automatic Transmission
The transmission pressure control solenoid may fail causing erratic shifting. Our technicians tell us that partial dis-assembly of the transmission is necessary to replace a failed pressure control solenoid.
The fuel level sensor in the fuel tank may fail causing erratic fuel gauge operation. Our technicians tell us that on high mileage vehicles you may wish to replace the complete fuel pump module assembly if this condition occurs.
On certain 2005 - 2007 vehicles, General Motors has provided a special service policy covering the fuel level sensor, agreeing to pay 50% of the repair cost. This coverage extends for 10 years or 120,000 miles from the original "in service" date of the vehicle. Please contact your local GM dealer for more information.

Chevrolet RecallsSide Curtain Air Bags Do Not Deploy Properly
The side air bag curtain fabric may tear upon deployment, resulting in incomplete protection for occupants in an accident. Dealers will replace the air bag module free of charge to resolve the concern.
The vehicles were built with an improper mirror combination of no inside rear view mirror and a right hand convex mirror. Vehicles require both side mirrors being flat if no inside mirror is provided. Dealers will install a right hand flat rear view mirror free of charge to resolve the concern.
If the airbag system is in a diagnostic test mode during a crash, the deployment of the frontal airbags and seat belt pretensioners will not occur. Dealers will reflash the system software. In the event the vehicle has had a previous airbag deployment, the airbag sensing and diagnostic module (SDM) will be replaced free of charge.
