1. Some GM vehicles have a rear hatch with a nasty habit of dropping on your head.

    It's no gentle drop either, owners have been complaining that the gas strut rods can fail allowing the lift-gate to give way to gravity and drop on your head like an apple -- a really, really, heavy apple. Thanks a lot, Newton.…

  2. GM says over 3,100 SRXs might have been built with the wrong driver's seat track bracket.

    Taking a sharp turn, making an unexpected stop or a crash could cause the seat to detach and make a mess of the driver. That's a problem.…

  3. Have you heard of a Monroney sticker?

    I can guarantee you've seen one --- it's the sticker required by law to be on all new cars sold in the US with important information like price, fuel economy and safety ratings.You just assume those things are accurate, but what happens when they're not?…

  4. Ever hear of spacer fabric?

    Want to know why you should care about it? Because the spacer fabric in your Escalade may stop your airbags from deploying. The incorrect spacer fabric can cause problems with the adhesion between the spacer fabric and the vinyl surface. If the adhesion isn't strong enough the passenger air bag can have problems deploying correctly in a crash.

  5. Turns out some GM cars have clingy problems with their brake pads not lifting off the rotors even after the driver takes their foot off the brake pedal.

    Sure, that's better than the brakes not working at all (silver linings and all that) but this can cause the car to suddenly stop in the middle of the road without any warning other than a few audible beeps from the forward collision avoidance system. That's very dangerous and the reason GM has issued a recall.…

  6. General Motors is in the news again with a recall of another 733,000 vehicles

    , 5 golden rings, 1 partridge in a pear tree and who knows what else at this point... it's hard to keep track of it all. Luckily, you don't have to because you signed up for our free alerts! Smart move, folks -- here's a breakdown of what you need to know:…

  7. It's summertime, so you might be picking up some good vibrations from the Beach Boys (kids, ask your parents). Or, if you're a CTS owner, you might be picking up bad vibrations from the drive shaft.

    To make matters worse, that faulty rear drive shaft is causing severe enough vibrations to trigger the car's rollover sensor, deploying the roof rail airbags randomly. Oy.…

  8. GM is recalling 19,225 Cadillac CTS vehicles from the 2013-14 model years because the wipers could stop working.

    I believe it was Socrates who said "a wiper that does not wipe is not a wiper at all." Or it could have been my Uncle Sal. Either way ... the failure will only happen after a very specific situation -- when the wipers are blocked by snow or ice while the vehicle is jump started. Given how awful last winter was I suppose that's actually pretty likely.…

  9. The 2013 Cadillac SRX is being recalled because of an acceleration lag of 3 to 4 seconds.

    I'm sure that goes over great with your fellow commuters when driving to work. Faulty programming in the transmission control module (TCM) is making your car so slow to respond to the gas pedal that even turtles on benadryl are saying "dude, hurry up". To be fair, conditions have to be just right for the lag to occur.…
