So - as expected, not enough people OPTed-OUT, but fortunately, enough people stayed IN and Objected (maybe even with their own lawyers) to convince the judge that this fraudulent "Settlement" needed to be stopped.
But the *reason* it was stopped seems insufficient to me. What about all the expiring SCAs? Why no mention of that? Those coverages need to be extended.
Better yet - why not just buy all these people out of these vehicles on some pro-rated number? I know that's what GM *doesn't* want to do, but if you're admitting that you installed defective rings in your 2.4L engines from 2010 to mid-2013, then anybody with one of these vehicles that has had *any* (documented) issues with Oil Consumption should be compensated ... regardless of the silly metric they've been applying to deny owner's said compensation (or coverage).
Turn it into "Cash For Klunkers" Part II ...
