We have owned our Spark from new, and it has covered less than 24,000 miles and has full service history from the supplying dealership. This summer the car started to develop a major misfire (Engine management lamp illuminated), leaving the car almost un-driveable. Dealer was contacted and they told us to drive it to them for inspection. The dealer kept the car a whole week, during which time they diagnosed a failed injector, which they replaced. Even though still within warranty this fault was declared not covered and we had to pay for diagnostics, component, and labour. 1 /2 tank of fuel later the problem returned, leaving my wife stranded on a major motorway, with a 3 mile walk to the nearest exit. Against our better Judgement we returned the car to the dealership once more....Once more diagnostics indicated that an injector needed replacing, once again we had to shell out for replacements and labour as the warranty did not cover the fault. 1/2 tank of fuel later the problem returned We have lost confidence in our little car, and more importantly the Chevrolet brand.
