1998 Corvette - service engine soon light on - car out of warranty, no help from GM

Buying a 1998 Corvette that has a "Service Engine Soon" light that comes on. Notified the Chevrolet dealership when I got an oil change in the year 2000- around April. Since the light didn't stay on the service department said JUST DRIVE the car and come back when it stays on ????.

Winter of 2000 to January 2001 did not drive Corvette in Winter because of the snow here in Chicago. When I began driving the car it was early March 2001, and the "Servcie engine Soon" stayed on took the car back to chevrolet and they had no record of the corvette's oil change or the memo made by the service advisor.

By this time the warranty had expired ( January 2001) even though the car had only 24000 miles on it, it was over the 3-year period. Contacted Chevy Head Quaters etc and basically was told ITS YOUR CAR and ITS OUTTA WARRANTY GO AWAY!!!....

Nice people at General Motors (LAUGH)...Next time you get a new car from GM better watch the people and dealership you have it serviced at.
