Last month GM announced an airbag recall affecting 4 million vehicles, including the 2014-2017 Encore and 2014-2016 Lacrosse.
Software errors have been found to disable the front airbags and seatbelt pretensions after "certain driving conditions." GM won't say what those conditions are, but they did say there’s been at least one death related to the bug.…keep reading article "Software Errors Create Massive GM Airbag Recall"
Hey, it's the weekend and you know what that means! Another massive recall from GM for ignition switch problems.

It's been a couple weeks since GM's last recall and I can imagine that CEO Mary Barra is starting to twitch.
Must. Recall. More. Cars. It's addictive -- at least I can only assume it is, given that GM has recalled over 15 million vehicles in 2014 alone. Well twitch no more, Mary!

I'm not great at business, but that doesn't seem like a sustainable model.…keep reading article "Enclave Front Seat Belt Cables Break Over Time"
It's official, General Motors has come down with "March Madness".
Earlier this month they recalled over 1 million vehicles for an ignition switch defect that can disable the airbags during a crash. The problem has resulted in at least 13 deaths and as it turns out GM has known about the defect for over a decade. You've probably seen this story mentioned in the news along with the words "terrible", "dangerous", "criminal" and "jerk-wad executives who care more about money than public safety." OK, that last one was probably just me but you get the point.…keep reading article "General Motors 'March Madness' Recall for 1.5 Million Vehicles"
