Again, you're talking legal, not what was right. The bondholders don't think it was right.

They didn't need a government bailout is a big thing. Plus I think they were a very early adopter of the quality movement. Virtually any company has a lawsuit against them at some point. If that...

I'm glad you're happy with your GM products. In my lifetime I've bought 8 new GMs and 1 Mazda (it was either a Mazda or a Chevette in '81, not a hard choice). This was before I bought 3 new BMWs...

I've had my '14 750 for 2 years now, and in the past 2 weeks I've had road warning pop up on my nav and I've never seen them before. For those familiar with Houston, it was on Beltway 8 near 249. ...

I can confirm this. For the Pirelli's I had, I got a nail in the center part of the tread, very repairable IMHO. Discount Tire checked with them and they said don't fix, replace.

I've had 2 windshield replacements on my '09 750. I didn't notice any change whatsoever and I do notice those types of thing. They were done by the big glass replacement guys, forget their name.
