The only thing I could come up with was onstar running its diognastic check.
Worst news I average 23 mpg. SAD!
The difference is the driver still has control of the vehicle. There is a little bit of a difference there between this recall and Toyota's.
By the way, I have had Toyotas, Pontiacs, Chevys and Cadillacs and my next vehicle will be GM.
I want to be able to sell my car after 4 years with high value so that I can buy the next one cheaper. and guess what! In Canada, GM, Ford, Pontiac are not even worth the penny after 4yrs. You are lucky if you get 20% worth of your car's original price. Only Honda and Toyota are worth investing money.
Toyota will bounce back really nice with the same cars with better price.
Toyota learned lesson don't trust Americans companies to made parts for them, mostly rubble came from bad made parts in USA not in Japan
After 2008 GM announce we now new different company advertising hybrid and electric cars; go to your local GM dealer and check what is on stock, they scr*w USA government and citizen
MY three penny
if they don't listen to the builders,and they depend on numbers (production output) to make them look good on the daily basis, then quality goes right out the door.
some say do your homework well, then you should read the book entitled savage
factory, you'll get an idea of what i'm talking about -- i'll still buy a g.m. automobile --
