GM Response to Seat Belt Issue Confirms Holden based Chevy SS

My dealer had sent off pictures to GM of the cable portion of the front seats belts rubbing against the plastic on the side of the front seats.

In an email sent back to the dealer, GM says that they have no plans to solve what has already been built but going forward a correction is planned.

The email continues: ...a fix is planned for MY11.5 Chevy Police Program and MY12 Chevy SS. The fix will involve a protective sleeve that covers the buckle and section of the buckle stem that rubs on the plastic trim.

Hopefully these meand that there will be future Holdens coming to our shores that we all can buy.

Start building up those GM Card Points....

Time for them to come up with something new!!! Why would they change the Cavilier to the Cobalt and then bring a brand spankin new car to the States and label it with a mediocre car. WTF? GM needs to take themselves far away from their past.

I noticed this rubbing on the passenger seat. The leather piping on the side bolster is actually beginning to wear. Sucks.

My wife had a Eurosport and it was a great car. My daughter is driving one now, and after 130,000 miles it's still going strong. There's a couple rust spots on it, but that's not bad for a car that's 18 years old.

The Chevy police car that is coming over is a copy of the Holdon Commodore (like the old caprice classic) not the G8 slightly bigger not much. Just give them time, those police cars will go up for auction with in a few years.

I thought it was going to be a while before GM revealed their plans for a Chevy SS.

Just to clear up any confusion, the above is wrong.

The G8 is essentially the same as the Commodore. Both cars use the short-wheelbase VE platform.

The new police car is similar to the Holden Statesman, which uses the long-wheelbase VE platform. (The Australian Caprice is an uplevel version of the Statesman.)

If it came back as the Chevelle, then that would be the greatest news ever.

I'm just smiling because you moved this from the "Speculation, nothing to see here" department to the "Absolutely Confirmed" department with your comment.

And damn you, now you've intrigued me even more than I already was with those extra bits of secret info you mentioned...

Bah, if they did not want the info you have to leak then you would not have that info........

Give it to us and we promise not to tell anyone

Autoblog has picked up on this thread and reported it on their website.

http://www.autoblog.com/2009/11/16/r...ing-after-all/

Also, earlier today, autoblog posted that Lutz again said no rear drive Impala SS on the horizon.

We can still hope.....
