Have a 2009 Pontiac G3 wave still covered by the warranty with electrical issues in the shop right now. A few parts were replace like the fuse block cluster and the odometer now waiting for the blow motor head to arrive from US to be replaced. Gm had to bring in a Gm engineer to run the test/ diagnostic tests. I think there doing their best to correct the issues. I just feel that there might be something that I'm not being told of. Because for Gm to bring in an engineer it sounds like its serious. I would like to bring my car in somewhere where a expert mechanic can verify that the issues have been corrected and all electrical components are working the way they should be. Thanks everyone

It's under warranty so let the techs do their work and if it needs help direct from GM they should take care of that. An engineer designs things but the techs get stuck figuring out how to fix the problems. If you must you could seek a consult from another shop but if you mess with a repair on something under warranty you may just ruin your chances of more help later if needed,

I'm going to toss in my 4 cents (inflation per TomG)

Worked at GM for many years...We were a store that Vehicles were sent to when they could not be repaired at another GM Dealer.

When a vehicle comes in for service, and the tech encounters a problem,he will contact TAC (Technical Assistance Center) for any help from the techs there.They immediately open/start a case and create a specific case number for reference later.They have access to similar problems that may have arisen at other dealers around the country and were reported as fixes.They also have access to GM engineering and will send out an engineer to assist with diagnosis in some cases.

We never had to have an engineer come out for any that we had come to us originally,but a few times when a vehicle came from another store,they had a engineer set up to come out .

We had several top quaility guys at our dealership,capable of any diagnosis...we never ever had one we couldnt repair and believe it or not,had a couple instances where our techs came up with the proper diagnosis and fix over the engineer.

Sounds like they're doing all the proper steps to get your vehicle repaired.
Sounds to me that an expert mechanic (engineer) is on the case already.
But your entitled to know whats going on...if you feel its not right,take it to another GM facility and have it looked at.
Get involved,its your vehicle,contact GM Customer assistance,Talk to the Dealer Service Manager and General Manager

Just note,sometimes the simpliest of repairs can be the hardest to pinpoint. Bear with them
