Hello,
There is something obviously being missed here, and it may be that the dealer is not up to the task of diagnosing the issue.
In no way can I imagine a correlation between the starter and a burned ignition coil, and changing the starter should have been based on some sort of solid evidence of failure.
In fact, I would easily believe that the starter, if bench tested, worked very well.
Now, that is an opinion from afar, and without putting my hands on the vehicle, I could never be sure, but it does not add up in theory.
This needs to go to an ASE certified technician with experience diagnosing no-start issues and electrical systems.
If the dealership has a certified master tech with all of his/her GM certifications, that technician should be able to locate the issue.
