31300 785 Battery went down on a 4 year old summer car, not very good. Some body panels need removed to change it, so not an easy one. The heater would not work properly, needed a resistor added due to a design flaw. That had actually never ever worked on this car, yet would not be fixed under warranty! The cooling fan stopped working. The power train was under the warranty, but I had to negotiate hard for GM to accept to cover that one. I still have to pay $100 for the ECU diagnostic!
