"This has been the most unreliable vehicle I have ever owned. Just about everything has gone wrong- and GM refused to fix a major defect while under warranty. I was forced to take GM to arbitration and won my case.
I have replaced the front differential (very expensive), a tie rod end, a front sway bar end link (twice), a rear sway bar end link, a window motor assembly, a four wheel drive encoder switch (warranty, took three trips to the dealer to diagnose that one), headlamp relay, front CV half-shaft, leaking A/C (warranty), radiator, water pump (twice), alternator (twice), battery (twice), intake manifold gaskets, oil pressure sending unit, radiator fan clutch, and a recall repair on the rear door latches in addition to the typical maintenance (belts, brakes, rotors, shocks and struts), rattling sail panels (used silicone caulk to fix), heater control valve, and throttle body.
All my windows have vertical scratches in them from the dew strips scratching them up (see TSB 04-08-64-012C). The fan clutch ticks like a time bomb (See TSB 05-06-02-004). The shift from 1-2 feels like someone is kicking you in the butt (See TSB 07-07-30-024 or 01-07-30-030A). So these are all known issues that others are also having.
I have owned GM cars all of my life, but this was the last."
