    2013 spark
  1. I dont know any other way to put this, to make you understand. I bought the car, barely put 10k miles on it, No issues at all. Got recall letter from chevrolet. Took it to dealer. They keep it for a few hours and said work was done, come get it. Put another 10k miles on car. Then the car started missing, and started using oil. I took it to a different dealer to have it checked out. Come to find out, the repairs had not been done. Now that the first dealer screwed me by not doing the work, Chevrolet claims its not their problem, and wants to wash their hands of it. So please spare me the it was only a few miles away from death. The car was fine, no issues at all when it was taken in the first time. Took another 10k miles, this is the dealers fault for not doing it the first time. Hence Chevrolet's fault for allowing one of their dealers to do this kind of thing to people, then washing their hands from it.
  2. Now to MR Ray. For your information, Chevrolet said they would take care of the recall even though it had a salvage title. And also for your information, I did not have to check if it had a recall, chevrolet sent me a recall notice. But the dealership I took it to, said they did the work, and did not. I was having no issues with the car. I thought the issues was taken care of, so I did not worry about it. Put another 10k miles on it and now I have a bad engine. So no, it is not on me. Please don't assume you know anything about my situation, when you obviously don't. Cant stand an self righteous know it all. You obviously cant comprehend either, seeing how this is all in my post. SMH.
  3. "If you knew about this common issue..why did you not verify it was up to date on recalls by checking the VIN and going to the GM website, punch in the VIN and it will show done or not" Well Mr gearhead, I did not find out till after, kinda a dumb assumption, If anyone knew what pieces of crap cars these are before, nobody would buy them. And if you had read my post better, I DID TAKE TO GET THE RECALL DONE. They said they did it, but did not. That is why they did not give me paperwork showing work done. I assumed they did, so much for trusting chevrolet dealerships at their word. If anyone wants to know who not to trust, it is Glen Sain Chevrolet in Paragould Arkansas. Central Chevrolet, in Jonesboro ar confirmed the work had not been done. But it was too late. Engine Damage.
  4. Apparently nobody at chevrolet reads this any more, or just don't care. I got no response what so ever from my post.
  5. We will never buy another Chevy product. My mother owns a 2013 chevy spark. It had 27k miles on it when bought. Put about 10k more miles on it, and it started drinking oil like crazy. I get notice in the mail from chevy telling me that the car has a recall on it, just for the very thing we was starting to have issues with. It ran fine, just used oil. I call and get a time set up to take car to dealer to have the issue taken care of. They was supposed to change the PCV valve, and reprogram the computer, along with reprogramming the radio, different issue I think. The dealer did not want to do it, because they said car had a salvage title. (Hit in the fender, all that was replaced was the fender). Called chevy back, they agreed to take care of it anyway, and OK'ed it. Dealer called said it was ready. Got there, no paperwork or anything, thought it was kinda weird, but took it anyway. Come to find out, all they did was reprogram the radio. Now I have a broken engine, yes it is because it was not repaired the first time. I call chevrolet, tell them it is now broken, and the repair was not done the first time. They agree to do the repair, take it in, they replace the PCV and replace one spark plug. Of course, it did not fix it. Call chevrolet, they will not let me talk to the same person anymore, they have some guy call me back that is very rude, and talks over me every time I attempt to say anything. They are now backing out, and now claiming it is because it has the salvage title. I guess a bent fender will cause it start using oil at 37k miles, and then at 40k the engine will blowup. And yes, I always keep it full of oil. We all know from previous owners that is not the case. Chevy is just using it as an excuse to not take of a problem that has plagued countless spark owners, especially 2013 models. I have been a GM man all my life. But now I don't think I will ever consider another. Junk car, they know it, finding ways to not take care of it. Maybe I will talk to a lawyer, and see what can be done, maybe a class action suit? who knows?
