2008 Saturn Aura brake light (and other related power

Customer Question
2008 Saturn Aura brake...

2008 Saturn Aura brake light (and other related power features as mentioned by so many other questioners) has been fixed under recall but is recurring (all same symptoms) GM (dealership and corporate) deny any further culpability. Is there any recourse left to the owners of these vehicles?

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the brake fluid? How's the level and when was it last changed?

Levels are fine recently changed when brakes done. Problems are POWER related (cruise, power steering assist, brake lights) as per recall indications. Repair done previously under recall- worked for a while and same recurring.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Aura yourself? What have you tried so far?

Not other than normal maintenance and upkeep repair. Waiting on this due to connection with previous recall.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Conditions are same as when had repaired under recall previously. Trooper friend alerted me to brake light malfunction occurring AGAIN.

Have you contacted dealership and let them know problem has came back? It is possible repair wasn't done properly.
