I am the owner of a 1997 Venture Chevrolet van that I purchased in may of 1997. I have several concerns after reviewing your web site. First, I just charged on my credit card almost $2,000 (December 2003) to fix the rack and pinion steering and to replace the power steering pump. There was a recall in November 2002 that I was not notified for the rack and pinion. Second, I have just learned that there is a recall related to the power pump steering. It is not by chance that both of these items have malfunctioned on my vehicle. I have experienced the exertion on more pressure to make turns and this is some of the issues that are related to the recall. I can not give a specific date of the incidents when the issues first started but it is fair to say it started sometime in 2003. What procedures should I follow to get these charges taken off of my credit card? since I paid for or is charged to my credit card, I can not get the repairs free. If you would like to have a copy of bills - please let me know. Also, I had an issue with the leaking of break fluid in 2001. After viewing your web site it appears that this could have been caused by another defect. I do not think it is just by chance the three major repairs that I have paid for on my vehicle are recalls from your organization.

Failure Date: 07/03/2003

2003 Chevrolet van purchased new 6/23/2003 from randy marion Chevrolet-pontiac-Buick, inc. , mooresville, nc 28115. Problem: squealing brakes. I have had this van into the dealership on five separate occassions in the past five months to have the brakes repaired. The dealership keeps my van from 2 to 4 days to 'make certain the problem has been corrected'. The brakes have not been correctly repaired. Various service tickets state, "clean, adjust, applied anti-seize on rear backing bplates; beveled edge of brake shoes, and readjuste: clean and adjusted rear shoes and applied anti-squeal'. The brakes continue to squeal each time I press my foot to the brake. I am greatly concerned for my families safety. I am distressed that this dealership (randy marion) will not contact gm to ask for technical assistance to correctly resolve the brake problem as I have requested the dealership to do so on more than one occassion.
