    06 v6 repair list for dealer on Monday :(

    3rd set of lower control arms
    Power steering leak
    Cd's not playing and constantly shuffling
    Also shuffle when pressing the middle row forward button
    High pitched power steering or pulley squeal on start up
    Rattling noise on cold start up (timing chains done last November)
    Hopefully engine replacement due to oil consumption
    2nd new key fob dead again
    Clunk in reverse after backing up a few feet (nt the u joints)
    Fan clutch has some play
    Left rear tire pressure sensor dead again


    If my warranty doesn't cover these items even though they are on the list of covered repairs this truck is going to the junkyard lol

    Awesome news warranty will only repair the radio and Ac tensioner and will cost me $400 outside of my deductible. Won't touch the leak or control arms even though they are covered. This is my last straw im getting rid of this truck.

    I doubt know if a lawyer would help cause bottom line is the truck needs an engine and they won't touch it due to the previous owners negligence so im pretty much screwed either way. All the warranty company (mercury insurance) is gonna do is point to the fine print about sludge which there isn't any anymore. Engine is perfectly clean but either way you know they like to nit pick.

    Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm good point ill definitely have to look into that cause this is beyond ridiculous that's why we buy extended warranties because we don't know how well or lack thereof it was maintained previously and they are hiding behind their sludge and neglect clause

    Thanks Laura but nothing ever comes of it. I appreciate your help. But too many issues in such a short time that I've had to eat the bill for. I'm going to my finance company who recommended the extended warranty company to see what they can do about it but ultimately I'm getting rid of this and staying as far away from purchasing another Cadillac/GM as I can. My next vehicle when I decide to finance again will be a brand new one with a full dealer warranty so that I never have to go through this again.

    OK so after the truck has been sitting at the dealer for a week I go up there to see if they heard the control arm noise and come to find out they never even drove it to verify WOW. Its sad that the techs there even told the warranty adjuster that I've done an awesome job at the repairs and they weren't a hack job and further said that I know more about the srx than they do. Also that all repairs I've done look professional at least I know I'm very competent in my work.

    Re: 06 v6 repair list for dealer on Monday :(

    This thread brings up an important point about extended warranties. The term 'extended warranty' implies that it is an extension of the original manufacturer's warranty. Nothing could be farther from the truth and I think the term "extended warranty" should not be used at all. Instead, it should be called what it is, a "partial post-coverage warranty". Extended warranties do NOT cover half of what the original warranty does. While they costs thousands of dollars, they expire only a couple of years later or when a certain mileage is reached. Everyone should read the fine-print in these warranties. For instance, they may cover a light socket, but not the bulb. From my experience, I may not ever get another extended warranty, because they simply haven't paid off. I would love to hear from other drivers who have found great benefit in extended warranties.
