Until GM receives approval from the court, warranty claim processing will be temporarily suspended.
WTF? So if I have a G8 that's disabled due to a warranty issue, I'm supposed to rent a car indefinitely while I wait for a court to decide on this before I get it fixed?
I don't think so. Unless maybe I use the rental to drive to NY BK court and bitch to reporters outside with a lawyer at my side. Then I might bill GM for my expenses, filing in the appropriate small claims court after they refuse to pay. Or maybe I'd just pay to get the car fixed and file a claim later.
Aside from pissing off owners, won't this bring sales to a halt? Who's going to buy a new car which, in effect, has no warranty?
What happened to Obama's promise of months ago -- "Don't worry about your warranties, they're backed by the federal government" or whatever it was that he said? Can someone dig up that quote? Maybe he worded it in such a way that it leaves wiggle room? It wouldn't be the first time.
If this goes on for a while, won't warranty claims become backed up -- making matters worse for GM?
If it gets resolved within a few days, as hoped, maybe it won't be so bad. But right now I'm pissed
-- and grateful for now that at 9K mi I've had no need for warranty repairs.
-- I just saw this, which seems to be saying warranty coverage continues as usual. WickedMom, what do you make of this vis-a-vis the memo you received?
"Warranty, service and customer support continue uninterrupted, backed by the U.S. and Canadian governments"
