So a useless piece of hood plastic flies off and it deems a complete recall of all cars produced, Whereas we can loose power steering while driving at any moment without any notice and no recall required. I wonder how many people need to get in steering related accidents before GM issues a recall.
But it does bring me to the book/movie Fight Club, He states, if an auto manufacturer deems it's cheaper to pay out lawsuits instead of issuing a recall, they'll do that, Because it's cheaper for people to get killed and just pay off their families.
Also! (a little off topic) but this has been bugging me. GM was bailed out right, so what did they do, they produced the "eco friendly" VOLT, now I like the concept, but it takes them over $80,000 to build just one volt, and they sell them for around $40,000 a piece... How long until Chevy goes under?
also something like 500+ volts were built, and delivered to drivers without the inboard front brake pads..... just one pad missing on each front wheel... at least I think it was the volt...
and you are correct metalhead, I recently learned that all engines, regardless of auto manufacturer, are made by hyundai.... Because it's more cost effective to just buy a pre-built motor and slap it in. And all those engines use fuel and ignition systems designed and produced by Bosch, who is FINALLY making some really useful diagnostic equipment... but I digress Domestic, JDM, European, it doesn't matter, all the parts are made in china or some other place, and then shipped to mexico or god knows where to be assembled. Sure my G6 was assembled in the US, but everything else was made elsewhere... not sure if anything was really MADE in the US.
It's too bad buying American made cars doesn't support America anymore.
Sorry to ramble on guys!
