Unhappy Envision owner

Finally traded in my old Impala for a Buick Envision. Went to the dealer to look at the Encore and hated it, then I test drove an Enclave which was too much like my GMC Acadia (which I already traded in for an All Terrain Sierra 1500). The salesman finally brought out the Envision... Fell immediately in love with it. But since I bought it 10 days ago, I haven't driven it outside the test drive. It appears there was a recall for a "sticker" and they can't release the vehicle until it is corrected. A sticker that nobody ever reads and most people don't even know exist. Can't blame the dealer since they have given me a loaner (a base model Enclave) but I have already made the first payment, turned in my trade in and am rapidly approaching the second payment for a car that I haven't sat in since test driving it. In my experience with GM recalls, you get the recall notice, then wait 4 months for the parts to come in. Not happy with GM for this. Bought the Envision for my wife and I am stuck driving a low end Enclave while she drives my truck. LOVE THE ENVISION!!! HATING GM!!!

Where do you live? I heard about this "sticker" issue for cars in Canada, but haven't heard anything about U.S. vehicles.

Hope they can quickly stick on a new one for you. Shouldn't take them that long unless the labels haven't been shipped yet.

They finally delivered the sticker and installed it. Took awhile which is typical of recalls from GM.

I had the same issue, but only had to wait 4 days for the sticker. I threatened to not take delivery and magically, the sticker came in FedEx.
