I will make this my last post and vent off some steam. My first and
last GM car will be traded off this Friday. I wish I could say it has
been a nice 9 years, but it is a bitter ending.
To any and all current and future GM owners, I leave you with the
following reasons GM will never recover:
DEXCOOL, known as DeathCool: upper and lower intake gaskets cost
$1,600 to replace. Don't let any dealer talk you into putting
DeathCool back into your car!
ISS, the Intermediate Steering Shaft has a life of about 30K miles.
Budget $260 for replacement here and rememebr to replace it often.
BCM, PCM, and Passlock: this overdesigned, unrelaible system has the
complexity of the NASA SpaceShuttle launch control systems, and costs
about the same to repair. You could spend $4,000 here and still have a
car that won't start due to random anti theft codes.
I would hope that GM could get comissions as Toyota's best saleman,
but I guess we taxpayers will just continue to bail them out.
