Re: GM recall

There's one out on massive numbers of late model Chevy pickups too.

The cables used to secure the tailgate in the down position are corroding underneath their vinyl coating leading to catastrophe when people are standing on them or loading/unloading equipment.

Grrr.

If I wasn't in such a strong position of equity on my '01 Silverado (I owe very little on it now), I'd trade the sumbitch off for a Titan or Accord or some other Japanese vehicle and never shop a POS American design again.

My father was an all American car man (he had a lot of problems with various cars over the years) we then convinced him to buy an Acura, he's never looked back since!!

I'm not at all surprised.

(Totally unrelated note: I said American design, not necessarily American built, for the record. They've been making Nissan pickups on assembly lines in Symrna, TN for years. What's un-American about that?)



Next time I go car shopping, I'm with your dad all the way soon2b!

Re: GM recall

Have you ever seen a ten-year old Toyota? I never knew a car could rust so much in such a short period of time.

If you buy Japanese cars, fine - but no whining about the economy...

Here in Ontario we have major plants from GM, Ford, Chrysler, Honda and Toyota. So a portion of money goes back into our economy.

Re: GM recall

You guys have got to be kidding about the recalls. I really like my blade but take a look at the number of Honda car recalls and TSB's posted some time. I think the trans recalls on almost all late model Honda's cost about ten times what the total GM recalls did all by itself. Here is a quick example of one fairly new car for one year.

Bulletins for 2004 Honda Accord L4-2354cc 2.4L DOHC (i-VTEC) MFI

General Recalls
TSB Number Issue Date TSB Title 04-020 APR 04 Campaign - A/T Inspection/Replacement

Service Bulletins
TSB Number Issue Date TSB Title 04-026 MAY 04 Brakes - ABS Lamp ON/Intermittent DTC's Stored

There is a difference between a recall and a service bulletin, by the way.

Your correct but if you look there are recalls on each of those listed. In five years my GMC truck has had a single recall for the tailgate strap (that I still haven't done) and other then that I have changed oil and rotated the tires. Runs like a bat out of hell and is still rock solid tight. My nephew works as a line tech for a Honda Dealer here in Plano and told me what a mess all the bad transmissions are right now.

If your looking for tsb's and recalls on a Honda I think alldata is a better place to start. The .gov site seems to either have a lot of bad or old information.

Re: GM recall

GM transmissions rock. And i don't say this just because i did some s/w for them I went through a design class also and they are very well thought out compared to some others.

For example I went on a business trip and they cursed me with a Plymouth Neon (called it a midsize ) So I spent some time finding the false nuetrals in it

Must obey the sheep dog
