Sorry To Hear That. I Am Also In Cape Coral, Fl. Just Got My Gto About Three Weeks Ago. Have Had No Problems With It Yet, But Only Have 400 Miles On It. Good Luck With The Repairs And Let Me Know Where You Went For The Warranty Work And How The Service Was. I Know That Dixie Buick/gmc Bought The Galeana Pontiac Franchise. Their Sales Practices Were Terrible But Hopefully They Have Better Practices In The Servise Department.

Yeah, Galeana was piss poor. Dixie on the other hand has been great so far. We'll see today how it goes.

I must drive a lot, as I have almost 400 miles on my car in a week. All from driving in town.

Well, got in it today, started it up, and no problems :willy: Do the computers run on Windows? :rofl:

I am gonna skip the dealer for now, as I am sure they will be unable to duplicate the problems.

I'd take it to the dealer if I were you. Have them check it out and get a paper trail going in case it becomes a bigger problem.

Even if the dealer can not duplicate your car's problems, there may be codes stored in it's computers.(there are at least a dozen that have fault code memory storage) ;)

Love the windows jab! Our Snap on Scaners run on M.S. CE

I am glad someone got it... :rofl:

For those who didn't, I'll explain. Whenever there is a problem with Windows on your PC, the first thing you do to attemp to fix the problem is turn off and restart your computer. That was basically what I did to "fix" my problem... :lol:

A better explanation:

Microsoft vs. GM

At a recent computer expo (COMDEX), Bill Gates reportedly compared the computer industry with the auto industry and stated, "If GM had kept up with technology like the computer industry has, we would all be driving twenty-five dollar cars that got 1000 mi/gal."

Recently General Motors addressed this comment by releasing the statement, "Yes, but would you want your car to crash twice a day?"

And...

1. Every time they repainted the lines on the road you would have to buy a new car.

2. Occasionally your car would die on the freeway for no reason, and you would just accept this, restart and drive on.

3. Occasionally, executing a maneuver would cause your car to stop and fail and you would have to re-install the engine. For some strange reason, you would accept this too.

4. You could only have one person in the car at a time, unless you bought "Car95" or "CarNT". But, then you would have to buy more seats.

5. Macintosh would make a car that was powered by the sun, was reliable, five times as fast, twice as easy to drive, but would only run on five percent of the roads.

6. The Macintosh car owners would get expensive Microsoft upgrades to their cars, which would make their cars run much slower.

7. The oil, gas and alternator warning lights would be replaced by a single "general car default" warning light.

8. New seats would force everyone to have the same size butt.

9. The airbag system would say, "Are you sure?" before going off.
