Just received a call from my dealer. Bought my car two weeks ago, checked my onstar account and it showed a water leak recall. Found it funny that the dealer would release a new car with open recalls but i digress.

The dealership tells me that my car has 2 more recalls, one where the front camera or cameras can freeze for 30 seconds at a time leaving the car no feedback which may lead to collisions. The last recall being a seat weld failure where a weld can fail or something and the seat doesnt hold up to a crash. Of note, my car when you sit in the seat it has a clunk sound and is loose to pull on......

Thought i left the lemon behind but it seems i found another. One.

Anyone else have these recalls?

I'm somewhat doubtful that the noun <recall> is being used correctly.

If the water leak you are referring to is the center high mount leaking that was not a recall and no were on the letter i received from gm does it state a recall.

Just re-checked - I've only got the one for the stop light that I haven't had done yet as there's no water in my trunk. Also Premier. What's your build date?

I have to hand it to GM though. In the past (80s maybe even more recently) recalls were rare. It was the same for other automakers. They just pretended nothing was wrong and let the customers foot the bill. My 2010 Equinox had various recalls/warranty extensions ranging from rust on the doors to timing chain tensioner/oil pump. The latter wasn't even a safety issue and they could have ignored it and stiffed owners. I think their actions like this help build customer confidence and is a show of goodwill. They got a return customer from me.

Cars are complex machines and they don't always get things right.
Recalls are a PITA, but I'd rather have them own up to the issues than ignore them.

They have reorganized the website so it is a bit confusing. I believe they are extended warranty/service campaigns rather than NHTSA (or whatever you Canadians have up yonder) recalls.

This is how the Chevrolet lookup shows things. However, at least this one is not an actual recall listed there, nor does it show on the NHTSA site as an eligible recall for my car.

I'm waiting to take my car in for the water leak and the oil leak for turbo return line. By the way nothing is leaking but they still have to replace the parts. I just saw on my chevy app I have one for the seat now. Which doesn't surprise me as my seat back does move some on the drivers side.
