I hear you. That’s extremely frustrating and I would have the same safety concerns being a family of four over here with two young children.Curious what you did to get GM to offer a buyback. Had my '22 Escalade 6.2 freeze up on I-10 leaving me and my son stranded in the middle of heavy traffic. Talk about scary. I've already had electrical issues with the vehicle having to replace the screens in the front. Now the dealership tells me that they're going to have to replace the engine. I called GM and their response was basically "only two more times with the same issue to go before we'll actually care and do something". Pretty ticked off to spend $100K on a vehicle and have these problems within a year. Not sure how I'm supposed to feel safe putting my wife and kids on the road with this hunk of junk.
To be honest, I did nothing to help expedite this scenario with General Motors. While I don’t think my motor replacement situation was entirely unique, I do think the fact that I had the truck for exactly one month plus being under 4000 miles must be within their threshold for offering the buy back / Replacement option. The dealer also had my car for four weeks waiting on parts / repairs.
I’d be losing my mind if it was 3 months of ownership (for example) and this happened and GM told me to take a hike. I guess somewhat “lucky” in that respect on my end.
