My friend, you seem to be telling my story almost ver batim! I won't say mine is a piece of junk but I'm having (or have had) some of these same issues. Thanks for letting me know I'm not crazy - I didn't know WHAT IN THE WORLD that rolling noise was in the ceiling! I know now to do some deeper investigating before buying a mini in the future. Since I am not a mechanic, I'm at the mercy of others and can't just fix these major things myself. I am a bit of a DIYer for simple things and most things under the hood that I can reach - and yes, I wrestled with that darn battery for 35 minutes. Chevy must have considered this a security feature because I GUARANTEE no thief has 1/2 hour to steal a battery. I would, however, like to know where you found the recall and hazard info. The only one I was told about was the sliding door handle problem. If you could supply a number or website, I would appreciate it. Thanx!Report it
