faulty instrument gauges - Complaint
Friday, February 11, my oil gauge showed no oil pressure. I had a friend look at my vehicle and decided the gauge was bad. I took my Avalanche in to be serviced by an independent shop who told me all vehicles with the same chassis and year had the same problem and GM issued a Special Coverage Adjustment to cover the defective part. Problem is my vehicle has over 70,000 miles, under 70,000 and everything is covered, between 70,000 and 80,000 just the part is covered. Now the amusing part, to get the free part you have to pay the dealer $60 dollars to get the numbers off your gauges! So much for free part. The real kicker is that GM has known about this problem since 11/8/2007 (date of the Special Coverage) but thought best to keep this knowledge to themselves. I'm sure hoping all the vehicle would rack up more than 80,000 miles!
