Well, where do I start. My 09 Solstice coupe ( 54,000 miles) while at the Nationals in Corning, NY the water pump decided to fail. I was able to make it to a GM Dealership about 15 miles away. After filling the coolant reservoir again, it was just about out of coolant. After 3 days in the shop, it was fixed ( for the second time). They said, the first water pump they installed was defected. Lucky for me, I had a BG warranty on the cooling system, that covers, water pump, radiator, and heater core. The warranty covered about 85% of the total cost. I also, have this warranty on my 06 Solstice (44,000 miles). And, the new water pump is under warranty for 2 years, parts and labor.
