    All Kidding Aside,

    My neighbor took her 2005 Cobalt to the local dealer for the ignition recall fix and was told they do not have the new switch yet , be patient and check with us next month. Does that sound right to you ? Oh, and no rental car provided until they actually write her recall up and only if the vehicle has to stay overnight .

    • DO NOT play by GM's rules.

      DO NOT let them tell you what will and will not happen.

      THEY built the deathtrap. THEY are going to rent you a better car right now....one that doesn't KILL you by surprise.

        Whoa, slow down RDH. You're starting to sound more hysterical than the lunatic fringe you call your ilk. I was curious, how can we put 13 deaths in 2.6 million in perspective. That amounts to 1 death in 200,000 cars. Now before you go into hyperdrive, one death is too many, but let's just think about this.

        According to a website called Live Science, your chances of dying by an asteroid strike is about the same, 1:200,000. Death by lightning strike is 1:136,011 (higher probability than dying in a Cobalt or any of the other cars being recalled). Earthquake is 1:131,890 (you are safer in a Cobalt than in California!).

      • Hey pee wee, write a note sign it, and pin it on her collar. When they see who they are dealing with, she will get what she wants. You tell em!

    • ((((My neighbor took her 2005 Cobalt to the local dealer for the ignition recall fix and was told they do not have the new switch yet , be patient and check with us next month.

      This is when she should explain that she'll be choosing her OWN rental elsewhere and it will be a nice one. She should ensure it costs more than any GM authorized rental would have.

      She'll also be sending GM the bill for it each week, directly to Mary Barra's office, and sending a copy to her two senators and her congressman with the dealer's full name and address.

      She will also include a copy of his business card in each letter to those politicians. She will also explain that her GM dealer failed to help her as she was promised on TV by Mary Barra, so she had to find her own rental.

    • Welcome to the NEW GM!

      A culture that is about "Customer and Safety" LOL!!!

      The ignition recall got exposed, and then when they learned of the senate hearings, they posted recalls on other major issues like the power steering failure to cover their #$%$

      There are plenty of lawyers that are filing class action lawsuits, tell your neighbor to google "gm ignition recall" she will have plenty of law firms to choose from.

      Sentiment: Strong Sell

        google "gm morning sickness" and see that gm has a long history of #$%$'ing the power steering components.

        Today I Decided to Take a Short Position on GM - My Story and Reasons Why...

        1)First and Foremost, I am not here to bash those going long, or encourage others to short. 2)GM.A culture that is about "Customer and Safety" LOL!!! 3)There are plenty of lawyers that are filing class action lawsuits, tell your neighbor to google "gm ignition recall" she will have plenty of law firms to choose from. ------------------ These are just a few quotes from this poster,who in his own words is an "ethical investor." How can he make that first statement with a straight face? And continue with many more posts slamming GM? In my opinion, just another shortie and GM basher trying to enhance his position.

    • The replacement switches are being sent to dealers starting next week. And yes, I would think that you need to have that recall letter in hand from GM.

      Patience...

      Sentiment: Buy

    • Wow that is terrible! Not even a rental to get out of that deathtrap

      Sentiment: Strong Sell
