    GM used heat shields that don't curve under the starters in the 5th and 6th generation Camaro, according to a new lawsuit.

    That leaves them exposed to heat and makes them completely unreliable. The plaintiff says the problem is particularly noticable on hot days or after a long drive where the engine gets hot. The car has to cool down before an owner can start it back up.

    Over time the lack of heat protection will melt the wires, damage the fuses, and create all sorts of electrical havoc to the starter's conductors.…

    The 8th generation Corvette has a front trunk, sometimes referred to as a frunk.

    Despite the name change the frunk is still required to have an internal release mechanism in case your kid climbs into the frunk and gets themselves locked inside.

    The Corvette does have a release mechanism but it's an electric button instead of a physical latch. And an auditor found that the button stops working once the car enters "sleep" mode which is roughly 10 minutes after the engine is shut off.…

    The 2021 Trailblazer has already been recalled because 19 of them are missing a tire size and tire pressure information label.

    Luckily those 19 owners don't have to go to the dealership as GM plans on sending the missing labels in the mail.

    A new class-action is accusing General Motors of knowingly selling vehicles that consume abnormally high quantities of oil.

    It's not the first time GM has been sued for oil issues in the Vortec engine. Specifically (and stick with me here) the Generation IV 5.3L V8 Vortec 5300 LC9 engine.

    As with previous lawsuits, the plaintiffs say low-tension piston rings, oil spray from the Active Fuel Management (AFM) system, and agressive vacuuming from the engine's positive crankcase ventilation (PCV) system are to blame.…

    There's growing concern that GM has made a series of bad decisions about the wheels for the C7 Corvette (2015-2019).

    1) They used cast aluminum and not forged wheels. 2) They used less than the recommended amount of casted material. 3) They blame drivers when the wheels split apart after going over bumps

    Now a lawsuit filed in California is accusing GM of systematically denying warranty coverage to owners with cracked wheel problems, even if the prolem happens well within the standard 3-year / 36,000 mile warranty.

    Airbag inflators are exploding in the 2010-2011 Malibu, but this time it’s not one made by Takata.

    GM says more than 1,100 sedans have ARC driver-side airbag inflators that are over-pressurizing, rupturing during an airbag deployment, and sending metal shrapnel through the cabin.

    The automaker has sent out a notice about the (obvious) danger this creates, but affected owners will have to wait for a second notice until the recall actually begins.

    Let’s hope GM is feeling “over-pressurized” to get those replacement parts ready ASAP.
