Re: Wave Plate Failure Extended Warranty Issued By GM!

It does suck that they could not help you out, but I get it. How could GM reimburse ANY work that was done without GM parts being involved. If you were to get any kind of recall letter you would not go to an independent shop for work. How could they stand by someone else's work?

Except in this case, the failure happened back in the time when GM was denying this was a known issue with these vehicles. Would you not shop around for the best repair quote / decide not to reward the place that won't stand behind their product or at least offer a goodwill discount on the repair? Just sayin... They could at least cover the amount the repair would have cost them had the GM dealer done it for anyone who had a denied warranty claim previously.

Good afternoon electbc,

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to review your case further. I think you will be relieved to hear that based upon the date you had your wave plate repaired, you are qualified for a reimbursement. In order to proceed with receiving a refund you will need to provide the following to the nearest GM certified dealership by March 21, 2016:

- The name and address of the person who paid for the repair
- The paid receipt confirming the amount of the repair expense, a description of the repair, and the person or entity performing the repair
- A Customer Reimbursement Request form which can be provided by any GM certified dealership

If this is not convenient, you may also mail the completed required documents to the GM Customer Assistance Center.
Please let me know if you have any further questions.

Have a great rest of your day!

Re: Wave Plate Failure Extended Warranty Issued By GM!

I posted a few weeks back about my 07 Outlook and wanted to give an update.... After having GM tow it to my nearest GM dealer they had it for 3 weeks. I asked them to please have it repaired before I leave for vacation on 4/4/15. They said no problem. They started calling me on Monday telling me "it'll be ready tomorrow" and then they called Tuesday, and Wednesday stating the same thing. On Wednesday they had to pull the transmission out again as it was doing something odd in first and second gear but assured me it would be ready by Friday. My wife called Friday and they said "sorry, it's not going to be fixed" I called GM Customer service (who called the dealership also) and went and spoke to the service manager and general manager both of which were polite (though I can't say the same for the service writer) I asked them to provide me a vehicle for my vacation since they hadn't kept their promises of getting mine fixed in the 3 weeks I allowed them to have it. These 3 weeks I was borrowing a 10 year old Dodge minivan from my in-laws (there was a point in time borrowing a Dodge due to my GM being repaired would have gotten me laughed at as people used to think GM was far superior to anything Chrysler made but those days are apparently gone)

The GM and Service Desk guy tell me at 4:30 pm that the mechanic would stay as long as it took to get it repaired and I would have my vehicle in time for vacation. 5:30 rolls around and it's ready (so they said) I picked it up, filled it up with gas and drove it 10 miles home. Hopped in it Saturday morning and off we went on a 550 mile trip to Florida. Got 227 miles from home and it starts buck jumping and slipping worse than it ever did before the "repair." Keep in mind this is Easter weekend. I finally pull over in Buttcrack, Alabama because I was petrified I would be stuck on the side of the interstate with 3 small kids and all my luggage. I am 45 miles north of Birmingham. GM roadside assistance wants to charge me for a tow to the nearest dealership ($69.99) and that dealership was closed and won't open again till Monday. It is 12:30 pm in the afternoon. Finally get it towed to the dealership and now I am sitting at an Econolodge in the middle of nowhere. GM says they will cover a rental from Enterprise IF it's at a freestanding location. The local branch closed at noon. Now I have to pay a Taxi to pick me and my 3 kids and wife up with a ton of luggage and take me to the Birmingham, Alabama airport so I can rent a car which GM tell me they WON'T pick up the charge for since it's an airport location. The cab costs me $140 to get to the airport and the rental costs me another $650 for the week. Now all told I am out over $800 BEFORE I EVEN GET HALF WAY TO MY DESTINATION BECAUSE OF THIS JUNK GM MANUFACTURED AND THEN HAD REPAIRED FOR ME "FREE OF CHARGE" Does $800 sound like free of charge to anyone on here? My vehicle is sitting in Cullman, Alabama and I have to try and get it home by Saturday 4/11. I am sure it won't be repaired by then (I am not blaming this dealership, they had nothing to do with this) and even if it is repaired I can't get it home due to the rental that I had to reserve for the entire week.

Now, can someone tell me how I can possibly get some of this money back from GM? This will make 2 transmission repairs in the course of just over 3 weeks. My vehicle has 81k miles. I hate this thing. I can't wait to get rid of it. I don't want anything extra I just want to be made whole from the excessive money I have spent due to the incompetence of the dealership that tried to repair it the first time. I have contacted GM/Saturn directly and left an email as well as the dealership that my vehicle is currently sitting at. It's Easter weekend so I understand I won't get to make any headway till tomorrow but can anyone give me any advice on what to do?? I am as frustrated as I have been in my 40 years of existence. All over a vehicle. What a pathetic statement to have to make. HELP...SOMEONE!!!

Re: Wave Plate Failure Extended Warranty Issued By GM!

As the Saturn Outlook world turns.......Just talked with the General Manager of the dealership I had my vehicle towed to. He says they have driven it and it has significant issues and that it may not be related to the special coverage issue. I think that may be what these guys are taught to say as this was the same word for word response I got when I had it "repaired" the first time. Well the only issue I had when I took it to the original dealership for the original repair was that it had started slipping from 2nd to 3rd gear. Now that it has been "repaired" by that dealership I have the same issue still plus a host of others. If I am not mistaken shouldn't all the possibly effected parts have been replaced when they were making the repair just to make sure this wouldn't happen with those parts at a later date? The bottom line seems to be that my vehicle is in worse shape now than it was BEFORE the first repair.
