I'm taking the 06 in for the "lock cylinder" replacement and wonder, in your opinion...

What is the most prone to happen mechanical/electrical problem to happen with a LS1/LS2 GTO?

Please share your "short list" of repairs as I need to get a list of obvious ones for the stealership to look for.

Thanks!


Regards...Greg:)

My 04 GTO w/ 55k miles
- rotors
- door handle paint chipped but my warrenty was over when it happened
- stilver trim on steering wheel has a small bubble
Julie's 05 all within 18k miles before she sold it
- 4 rear diffs
- headrest stiching
- battery
- rotors
- door handle paint chipped
- CD player - disc was stuck
- ABS sensor failed and hub was replaced(not a common issue though)

There are a bunch more that you can find by looking at different threads too.

1. Front seal on AC compressor went out two weeks after I bought the car new. Took a month to get a new compressor from "down under".
2. silver trim on steering wheel bubbling

Thats it!

Nope, she didn't do burnouts or anything, but did drive very spirited. Her car was stock with just a tune. You should see the GMVIS report, its about 10+ pages long of warrenty work. Hard to belive being that she bought it as a dealer demo too.

I beat the crap out of mine and nothing really has issues. Go figure.

Hey jp...

Is that GMVIS in the forum thread....?

My service mgr wants me to bring in some big time GMVIS reports as he said he's not aware of any probs with the Goat...:eek:

Then again..he's probably only seen one or two GTO's.

LMK....what thread and post # if it is on forum.

Thanks...

Greg

This was it when she bought it. Since then, there has been 2 more diffs, Pontiac arrows faided and were replaced, floor clips broke and were replaced, driver and passenger rear window seals reaplaced, wheel hub, and rear seats. I belive this is everything off hand. But the dealer can run the vin to verify everything if they wanted.

Hope this helps.

IMO based on the reports of owners of this car and the frequency from Original owners of this car in order of what I think were the most reported problems (warranty wise) since 2004:

1. Rear end whine
2. Strut Rub
3. Door actuators
4. PCM/BCM problems
5. Door handle paint adhesion
6. Rear seat seam splitting
7. Fender/Front Bumper clip breaking causing the fender to stand proud of the front bumper
8. Water soaked rear floor boards
9. Gas Cap failings
10. Fan blower motor whining
11.. Steering wheel spoke covers peeling. BONUS complaint (is a close #10)

There are a host of problems that are owner caused, fault codes etc from incorrect installation of CAI's etc, bulbs, failing to clear codes etc used owners attribute to the car when in fact previous owners are the fault not GM.
