Avoid garages if your car is leaking oil that is.
“The Detroit automaker said earlier this week it is recalling the 1997-2004 Pontiac Grand Prix, 2000-04 Chevrolet Impala, 1998-99 Chevrolet Lumina and 1998-2004 Chevrolet Monte Carlo, 1998-99 Oldsmobile Intrigue and 1997-2004 Buick Regal “because drops of oil may be deposited on the hot exhaust manifold through hard braking, which can cause engine compartment fires. GM is working on a remedy.” GM said there have been 19 reported minor injuries over the last six years.
The recall covers cars with 3.8-liter V6 3800 engines. There have been four recalls for the issue since 2008.
In a dealer bulletin made public Friday, the automaker said the vehicles are safe to drive, but GM recommends that owners not park in a garage or other structures. GM is currently “finalizing a remedy.”
How is GM still getting in trouble? You see Volkswagen “cheating” fuel economy but General Motors are killing people and giving damages causing fires and all these faulty deadly recalls? I understand there many GM buffs out there who just stay loyal to the brand, I also do understand that there are good GM cars out there. The government keeps bailing these guys out with our tax money and yet they come out with these products.
All I’m saying is this, come on! Put more effort into your products and do more quality assurance. Hire better engineering companies to test your vehicles.
