General Motors Complaint - Paint and bonding breakdown on GM Cars
FLORIDA -- The paint on my almost $40,000 (1998 prices) car has failed miserably, as is common for all GM paint as I understand it. If this was a known problem and settled in a 1997 Class Action Lawsuit, then why were no corrective measures required on the paint for my 1998 Aurora. My car is in perfect condition except for the "peeling paint" that GM was obviously aware of for years before the same paint was use on my car. The US automobile industry encourages us to "Buy American" and I believe that helps keep our economy strong, but when I look at my nephew's 1998 Nissan, with it beautiful paint and much lower original purchase price, I wonder if "Buying American Made" was my best choice. Please inform me who at General Motors might be interested in my story, if anyone! I know that this car is now considered "old", but it runs great. When I purchase a new automobile, I will certainly keep in mind, how I am treated by GM in this matter! It should also be noted the this vehicle spent much of it's first six years in a garage due to illness and was not used at all from November 2002 to January 2004, except to keep up with the maintenance and a few short trips to keep it's battery charged and check for other problems. The car has not yet been repainted.
This automobile was originally purchased by my mother, Anne Barnes from a Palm Beach County Florida Oldsmobile Dealership (Dan Burns Oldsmobile), which is, of course no longer in business!
Sincerely, Gail Hosp
