There is clip on YouTube from Full Metal Jacket that I really want to post here, but it would last about one minute before banished to the dark side.

So instead, try this one out:

Don't hold off. Unload on them. They deserve it. Most GM service departments do not care at all and especially about anything having to do with warranty work. And especially since they charged you when they shouldn't have. And, if you haven't already done this, I would contact GM Customer Support directly and tell them what is going on.

I speak from experience. I dealt with a GM service department from October of 2011 to May of 2012 to get my 2011 Chevy Cruze, that I purchased 6 months earlier (new), fixed correctly. After over 7 trips, I gave up, traded it in, and purchased a much nicer, used Pontiac G8.

A big round of applause for Matt, ok, maybe two thumbs since there isn’t a "round of applause" smilie) GM called me this morning and advised me that I would be receiving a complete refund. Apparently *wink* the dealer's system was down when they wrote up my service ticket so they didn’t know about my zero deductable extended major guard warranty.

I'll be honest: I've had to fight with GM one time (it is documented on this forum). The great thing about GM or any other American dealer is that there are a million dealerships. If one gives you a headache, just go to another. After I had my warranty situation resolved, I just switched dealerships and everything has been gravy since.

Funny you should post this morning. Yesterday I (finally) received my refund check from the dealer, only took 2 weeks. Wonder if they would have waited for my payment for 2 weeks

As for dealers, yeah, I'll be switching. Trouble is, that was the second closest dealer to my home. The closest dealer really peeved me when I witnessed one of their employees driving my Sky through their parking lot (my top was down) with his hands completely off the steering wheel doing his impression of Leonardo DiCaprio on the bow of the Titanic.

Yes thats crazy. Mine was acting up and didn't have time to check it out so took it to the dealer. They just called and said $500.00 bucks, $250 for the fan and $250 for labor.

So any of you have a good aftermarket fan that will work on the Sky's?

I bought two spare fan assemblies from Source One autoparts. They came attached to new radiators.

Check with them. They might have one kicking around their store.

I know I'm late to this party, but I just ordered a Dorman Fan Assembly from Amazon for 70 including tax, and free shipping. They listed 2 different part numbers, one for "non turbo" and one for Redline. We'll see if it comes with the module -- if not hopefully the module still works!
