Complaint Review: NORTHWOOD CHEVROLET - GENERAL MOTORS
NORTHWOOD CHEVROLET - GENERAL MOTORS212 7th Street EUREKA, California U.S.A.
NORTHWOOD CHEVROLET - GENERAL MOTORS For heavy duty diesel engines, the warranty period is 5 years, or 100,000 miles, or 3,000 hours of operation, refuseal to give a print-out of work order, over charging. EUREKA California
A week passed with no call so, I returned and inquired what the status was. I was informed that they had determined that the sensor was only covered for 36,000 miles and that the price for the sensor was $ 325.00 plus the inspection fee of $ 185.00 plus labor -and -wasn't positive this would fix the problem - that it could be the TURBO and that also wasn't covered under warranty.
I refused to authorize the work and requested copies of the paper work. They refused to give me any copies what so ever. I started to leave with the paper work in hand and was jumped by five of the staff and had to give up the paper work after a choke hold was placed from behind. I then called 911 for help. After the police arrived I did receive partial hard copy.

If failure of one of the components listed above results in failure of another part, both will be covered by this warranty.
I then contacted various Chevy dealers and simply ask IF the Turbo sensors were covered under the !00,000 mile warranty and the answer was always the same WE DONT KNOW.
So.there is not a independent garage w/TECH 2 software to do the LEARN modes needed for a lot of the service repairs that will have to be done.So until I find a way to bypass Chevy I have a problem truck. PS the solenoid is $ 149.00 at Gmdirect. = BEND OVER!
