Defective fuel level reading since delivery of May 2017. Reported it during routine oil change. Supposedly Chevrolet knows about the problem and is now working on a software fix. Previously issued TSB's are no longer being used according to the dealer.

Engine "cranked" for several seconds before starting. It was determined that the fuel pump needed to be replaced. Cost was estimated to be $850. Despite the car was no longer under warranty (>36,000 miles) I asked that the dealer inquire if GM would cover any of the cost since the car was less than 36 months old (interestingly the dealer did not offer to do this before I asked). GM agreed to cover the full cost.

Car was making an odd rattling sound (like the spare tire was loose but it was not). They thought it was the lift gate so it was readjusted. That has not yet fixed the issue.
