Re: GM Ignition Recall Expanded by 900,000; Cruze Sales Mysteriously Halted

Yes there was a stop on these vehicles but Again here is the rest of the story that someone likes to leave out.


http://www.autoblog.com/2014/03/29/c...-yukon-recall/

We had heard previously from GM that it had issued a stop-sale on Chevy Cruze models equipped with the 1.4-liter turbocharged engine, and now there's an apparent recall to match that stop-sale against. A total of 172,000 cars from the 2013 and 2014 model years will be recalled to replace half shafts that could fracture while driving. Several dozen shafts have separated, according to GM, but there have been no crashes or injuries associated with those failures. The stop-sale has since been lifted, meaning compact car shoppers can add the Cruze back to their potential test-drive lists, should they so desire. Of those Cruze models covered under this new safety campaign, some 2,500 examples are actually re-recalled models, that is, vehicles that were previously recalled and repaired with suspect halfshafts.

The new recalls are being seen by some as GM working to clear its slate of recall-related items ahead of next week's government hearings on the automaker's massive ignition-switch issue. GM spokesman Alan Adler tells Autoblog, "As Mary Barra said, customers are our compass and we have redoubled our efforts to ensure their confidence and peace of mind."

The key here is full disclosure when reporting a story as it can be a little more informative than the half truth.

No lies, no excuses, no miss information is the best way and It is not even a mystery anymore. Funny how some that accuse GM of not giving full disclosure are so good at it themselves. Not an excuse just an observation.

The "story" here is how all this stuff is coming out *right before* Mary "Capy" Barra goes to the principal's office.

I can't wait to hear what Mary has to say on Tuesday ...

"Mary - have you seen better days?

And will you find different ways?"

Unfortunately I don't think it's going to stop there.
GM has a few month old already restriction on the new power heated sliding rear windows in the new truck line and has followed with restrictions on the new sunroof and the telescopic tilting steering wheel in the new trucks.
Hubby has been holding off on ordering one for himself as our dealer has had a few trucks come back on tow trucks as the trucks won't start. And it's only on the trucks (so far) that have the telescopic steering wheel.

So the ignition saga continues.....

GM will be under a microscope for a while just as Toyota was for a while last year.

Many of these issues are issues that normally come up and never make the media for most companies but the press will report any and all issues and even TSB.. This is why we have had a rash of recalls before the Washington meeting to as one story said to clear the slate before testify.

Also GM will recall any and all things that could be reported. It will be a sensitive time till the Media moves on.

Then you have the public that most will care less and some will over react to this not really comprehending the true nature of many of these recalls or holds. Finally why we will have the trolls and the haters that will pounce on anything for what ever personal pleasure they find.

In the end it will pass but GM will go through what others that have been in a similar situation. It may last a little longer just due to the medias love to stir the pot post bail out.

The key is to keep this in perspective and since some have no idea or concept of what is normal for an automaker and what is not some will over reacts to some of these issues that go unreported normally. If you look at the true numbers of most of these issues they are less then a .5% of one percent of all vehicles involved.

The bottom line is it is not good but it is not the end of the world.

Just in the future look for GM to be more reactive and more proactive in dealing with these issues as they will have a new way of dealing with these issues as it has needed fixed for a long time. Like I tell our friend you need to look at the whole story to get where this is going. Right now the GM story attracts attention on the web and in the media so they will continue to cover it till the public losses interest.

I can go on Mitchells and pull up hundreds and thousands of TSB and Recalls on nearly any model. Many of the TSB'a remain unreported unless the owner brings the vehicle in with the complaint or need for modification. It is just how the industry works and with cars being more complicated anymore we see many more with this.

It's a good thing good thing you're not a spokesman for GM.

Re: GM Ignition Recall Expanded by 900,000; Cruze Sales Mysteriously Halted

If I may ask - what's the purpose of this thread in a Theta forum? I believe everyone knows all manufacturers have different issues and recalls?

Colt Hero, I don't mean to call you out, but it seems you despise GM? Are you/your wife really unhappy with the 'Nox? Admittingly, I've only seen a relatively few posts from you (and you've been around here much longer than I), but it seems lots of your posts are against GM, the dealerships service, and the features/design of your 'Nox? (Or what it doesn't have?)
As you can imagine, owners of Theta vehicles in this forum don't like to see the constant bashing on GM (especially on other vehicles that are not applicable to the Theta?). The info in the first post would be good in a Cobalt/HHR/whatever forum, but seems out of place here?

If it's not applicable to the Theta, Colt Hero & hypderV6, can we let this thread die?

Meh, other than that this should have arguably been in the 'off topic' section idk what the big deal is. Government motors is having a rough couple weeks and I don't thing we are out of the recall woods just yet. I wouldn't be surprised to hear of a theta recall. Clearly members of this forum are interested in discussing these points plus or minus.

Yes indeed... should have been posted in the 'Off Topic' sec. - then all would be well.

Perhaps a Moderator could move this thread over... hint hint Bowtieman
