    1srx1ext,

    If you had wanted for us to get you vehicle build information on the STS-V you're considering, we can do that. Please send us the last 8 digits of your VIN and request to us either by private message on the forum or email (katie_lucille@gmexpert.com).

    I haven't owned mine that long, but so far I have had issues with the wheel bearings, rear LED tail lights, and catalytic converters. I have 36K miles.

    make sure it's not leaking oil, others have reported rear engine seal leaks.

    Mine has 64k on it and i have the following issues:

    Driver lumbar no workie
    Gas gauge has a mind of its own
    Power steering whines. (Might just be low on fluid, but i am lazy. LOL)

    Other than those, it is problem free. Havent had any problems that i have read on the forums.

    yea, my power steering whines too. I took it to the dealer, but they said they couldn't find anything wrong. since it's new to me, I just figured that's normal.
