General Motors in Albany, New York - 2008 sierra rear marker lite fire

recently purchased 2oo8 sierra 1500. one week after purchase left side lighting went out. took to mechanic he replaced blown fuse. Three weeks later backing out of driveway rear tail assy. burst into flames. Took to mech said rear marker lite socket assy defective, has seen similar problems on that year before. Took to dealer, they said mouse could have chewed! Contacted G.M., they will investigate, advised not to drive vehicle, could take between 30 and 120 days to determine whose liable! First gm truck since1987, no electrical fires in last 10 f-150s. I would think on a truck fire that close to gas tank gm would have asked to have dealer inspect for cause. I have been a contractor for over 40 years,can I bring plywood sheets on the bus?

You know, things like this happen on vehicles, regardless of who makes them. In medicine it would be called an "ideopathic" anomaly.

It just happens, for no apparent reason and may not happen in another hundred years. Ford F150 is an excellent vehicle and I swear by them, not at them.

General Motors in Washington, District Of Columbia - 2003 Saturn Vue

I bought a 2003 Saturn Vue and it had a VT1 transmission which failed in service here a couple of weeks ago. There was a class action lawsuit but it's still unclear what my rights are. Can anyone lead me in the direction of getting fair consideration for the troubles I have had? Sure would be obliged to you! The car runs great, engine wise, and the body is in good shape. It's just a shame to let this go to waste! I have tried for some time to figure out the mess of the lawsuit and everyone who works for GM plays dumb and does not know anything about it! Thanks for looking! Kenny

General Motors in Grand Haven, Michigan - 2003 impala do not buy peice of ***.

i have a 2003 impala found out it has bad head gasket. just replace the intake gasket not long ago. do not by a gm. car over heats. no heat in car. found out gm has bad gaskets and not helping. then macanice told me it is commen in the imapla. the dealer wants 2300.00 dollors to repair. the car sits in back yard for know. you can replace thermastat, but it won't help.gaskets are bad from when car was assembleed. so if your having problems on a 2003 impala or your 2003 or 2004 venture van it is probably the head gaskets.

Update by user Feb 13, 2012

I spoke with the local AutoDealers Association who were very interested and contacted the dealer on my behalf.

A meeting was arranged and a manager demonstrated an interest and oversaw an estimate for my paint requirements.

Unfortunately that was the last I heard of...

I'ts been 9 years since we bought our 2003 Olds Aurora--and I'm still pissed. I've bought 6 new cars since but none were GM. I feel bad about abandoning my support of this former great US manufacturer, especially since my wife an I were raised by GM...

I own a 2000 Chevy Blazer & after countless remedies this worthless waste of iron still doesn't cease to fail me. GM didn't deserve a bailout.

Greedy unions & unchanged automotive technology will get you nowhere in these tight-budgeted & ever changing times. If you're reading this, check the numbers & not common, misguided folklore.

People who praise these cars have warranties &/or access to a never ending amount of parts. Do yourself a grand favor, buy a Japanese car & never look back.

General Motors in Shawnee, Oklahoma - I HAVE A '11 TERRAIN-NO TRUTH IN MILEAGE ESTAMATES

i TOLD THE DEALER i WANTED A CAR THAT WOULD GET 25-30 MPG. MY TERRAIN IS BARELY GETTING 21MPG it has 8,500 miles on it now & it's a 4 cyl. My Cad. gets 23-25 w a big v8 and weighs twice as much. I have driven mostly GM cars for over 60 years & this is the totally worst mpg I have ever gotten with any car! If I could take it back and throw it through the front window as the dissatisfied Discount tire customers are advised to do, I would. why don't GM concentrate on CNG powered cars instead of the rush to electric. Just think of all the benefits this would produce! Jobs, Pipelines VS 18 wheelers, Oil independence, enoudh fuel to last over 100 years right her in our 50 states. When I went back to complain to the dealer, Ferguson mtrs. Norman,Ok. they said ,if we had told what to really expect in the way of mileage you never would have bought it, Amen to that!

I purchased this 2005 Chevy Equinox in May 2006 with 26k miles on it. In May of 2008 with less than 60k miles on it the head gaskets blew! GM refused to repair or do anything to assist financially in the repair. I took it to another mechanic (I cannot afford GM...

General Motors in Seaside, California - BS 1/2 *** Recall

So GM acknowledges that they have a problem with the gas guage in many 2005 chevy trailblazers.... yet only offer to pay for 1/2 of this problem. WTF we pay all this money for a car and now are expected to pay 1/2 of a problem they are responsible for. WE did not break our gas guages nor did WE do anything to create this problem. OH YES WE DID, WE BOUGHT THEIR *** UP PRODUCT! Guess I will continue watching my miles as well until they want to cover full costs. Who has $300 to spend on a repair! POOR MANUFACTURER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

General Motors in Harare, Mashonaland Central - Racially abused at GM Motors Chisipite Zimbabwe

I went into GM Chisipite Zimbabwe this morning to collect my Chevy Captiva which i purchased in November 2011. Upon getting there i was greated by a rude gentlemen who went all out to insult me. You see when i bought the car i was told i could collect it before Christmas but i decided not to. Yet today i was being told the car is still in bond and asked how being black i had afforeded to buy such a car. I then explained to the gentleman that i had bought the car from own funds and had been assured that i could get it by Christmas. Since i had sold my other car i told them i had no transport to work and was told that they dont provide courtsey cars for blacks by the same gentleman. A lady called Lynn came in later and tried to calm the situation but i was already pissed. To GM Motors i say what a way you guys do your things i feel cheated despite the fact that i have always respected your brand and own 3 of your cars that i purchased through the same. I am very annoyed and all i want now is my money back. Cheated & abused client.

Quit playing the race card. It is old and overused.

This is not the 1800s anymore.

You always seem to use the race card everytime you don't get what you want. Get over it.
