Angry Mad as heck

We have a 2008 Saturn Outlook w/ 1110,000 miles And it is my wife truck which she loves because it is a SUV And i feel safer with her in it because it sits higher, but enough of the small talk now its time. I have seen that GM had many problem that they knew about with the Transmissions I am very disappointed in the product, It is a shame I come from a GM Family my uncle and Aunt were big wigs there and retired from there. I think GM need to stand behind their product. Plus my parents just went and bought a brand new suburban that is a 75,000. paper weight once there warranty runs out. Now i'd like to here from GM on this matter to see how or if they can care less. I can tell you this if Gm dont hear at least something I'm done buying GM Cars, Truck Vans, and Anything else they deal with

They don't give a shayt. Funny part is that tranny and sister versions are all over the GM line, so although first put in Saturns, the problem didn't surface as a design flaw until it made it into the rest of gm's lines.

My fav part is that you can have 3rd and 5th screwed to hell but unless you lose reverse, they won't fix it under extended warranty. Show me a GM exec that would use that vehicle as a daily driver.

Luckily my 2008 Vue went at 97k.
I wrecked it later, before the brake problems.

Just remember that New GM bought the assets of old bankrupt GM but did NOT assume the liabilities in any way.

So all the people who needlessly died over the penny pinching ignition crap ---their families can not hold new GM responsible.

Talk about standing on your dead customers.
I drive a 14 escape (wife's) and a 97 SC2.
Next car will likely be a WRX (not the STI) -- 16+# of boost...interesting

Foccck GM.

I agree with derf 100%. GM doesn't care about anything except the all mighty dollar. I don't even let people with GM products park in my driveway. They have to park on the street.

I’ll agree too, but the cars from defunct GM divisions don’t hold value at all... thus, I drive a Saturn Ion... thankfully it’s powertrain is reliable and the rest is glitch free enough to live with...
