Posted on 05/15/2014 6:54:02 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper
General Motors added five recalls to its growing list Thursday, pushing its total number of recalled vehicles to more than 11 million this year.
GM's recalls alone have the U.S. auto industry on pace to break the record of 30.8 million recalled vehicles set in 2004.

How come Government Motors isn't being given the Toyota treatment?
Not only Government Motors, but largely owned by the thug/mob unions who no longer feel (if ever) the need to do a quality job.
Nothing here that a few billion dollars from the American taxpayers couldn’t fix. Go UAW!
I’m still waiting for the local Chevy dealer to get that 10 cent part for the ignition switch on my Cobalt. Without it, it will crash and I’ll get killed, so I’m told. They told me they don’t know when they’ll get these parts (in a Hilary-type shriek THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE!!!!)/s
“How come Government Motors isn’t being given the Toyota treatment?”
Amen! Great question.
GM and Chrysler products both need to be boycotted. Ford could be included, as they are UAW, but they did not take any bailout funding. Personally, I won’t buy Ford products either.
I drove Chevrolets for 40 years, but my last GM vehicle, a 1995 Blazer, had so many problems I vowed never to buy another GM product. GM already had major problems before the government takeover and it is obvious things have gotten worse not better. Too bad that GM didn’t go bankrupt and was bought out by a company like Hyundai. Had that happened GM would be making better cars.
This just shows how government “salvation” is bad for the market, for consumers and for liberty. Chrysler should have been BK’d back under Carter. We must stop this political bribery to protect Presidents and other politicians. You’ll note that neither Obama or Bush put their own money into these losers.
See, the government is doing so well at producing safe cars that we should be happy to turn over life-saving medical treatment to it too.
Oh, and my new truck is a GMC diesel that I plan on putting 500,000 on.
“I drove Chevrolets for 40 years..”
So have I and I still do. Just sold a 2003 Avalanche that had 170k miles on it that was as trouble-free a vehicle as I have ever owned ( and I towed an Airstream Trailer with it often). Bought a 2013 Avalanche to replace it last Fall because the idiot President of GM decided to kill the vehicle. BTW these vehicles are built in Monterrey, Mexico (along with Suburbans). So much for the American UAW. The American automakers are in the process of leaving the US. Ford has openly stated that they will never build another mfg. plant in this country, and look for your GM car to be imported from China in the not too distant future.
“GM’s recalls alone have the U.S. auto industry on pace to break the record of 30.8 million recalled vehicles set in 2004.”
Government Motors. What else would you expect?
Buy GM and support communist politicians like the Obama.
Like all other communist run companies, they don’t have
to make a profit just a statement.
“Be a good communist and support your dear leader, buy
GM” or “Buy GM and avoid a tax audit” or maybe even
“Buy GM and be exempt from Obamacare”
Soon that’s what it’s going to take to sell the junk.
“Nothing here that a few billion dollars from the American taxpayers couldnt fix. Go UAW!”
The last time they stole 10.5 billion from the American
tax payers and now the cars and trucks are junkier than
ever. Now a GM vehicle is nothing more than a
glorified Yugo. Way to go UCAW. (United Communist Auto Workers).
Government Motors has been off my “buy” list for over 5 years.
At least I can enjoy my early 70’s vintage project GM’s, appreciating what the company once used to be.
>> How come Government Motors isn’t being given the Toyota treatment?
Because the MSM is the Country’s greatest threat.
You can PLAN upon it, but you shouldn’t COUNT on it.
Your engine is made by Isuzu.
Or a Panoz if they ever make a SUV.
Government Motors: so good, you won’t mind paying three or four times for it. :)
msnbc was trying to rescue GM by saying the bankruptcy insulatesd the new company from old company debt.
Bankruptcy law has provisions for fraud and deception being non dischargable. ANYBODY with 1/4 of a braincell knows this. MSNBC is just trying to protect government motors and an female ceo who IS part of the culture of corruption.
