General Motors

So I ended up buying my wife a G8, we picked it up and it only had 800 miles on it!
We drove it home, which was 2500 miles and on the way it developed a rattle in the door, warped rotors and the XM stereo quit working. Took it in the dealer and was getting hassled by the service writer (typical garbage)
So I went on a GM forum and stated my frustration with buying a GM product, well low and behold GM monitors the forum and contacted me to see if they could help with the situation.
I am to say the least quite happy with GM Corporation for coming forward and trying to help.

This is for the wife, but after our dealer visit today we might be letting it go! I have not owned a GM in years and now I believe they are still JUNK
And the dealer network makes it impossible to go to another dealer without driving an hour. Not worth the stress.
I am so mad right now I am reconsidering ever owning another domestic, even though my last GC has been good to me.

Re: General Motors

Sorry to hear about your situation. I had expected the G8 to be better than that. Isn't it built in Australia?

So did I, not that the issues are real big but they are the same as they had 10-15 years ago and then I remember what happens after the little problems.
The wife right now is not talking to me she likes the rig a lot better than I want to trade it for.
