You are aware of things like... drain plugs backing out, and oil filters leaking? If my car is suddenly hemoraging oil in-between the times I manually check the dipstick, I want to know about it.

I think it's a strange feature to no longer have!

Is this only a Cheby thing? My '08 GMC still had the low engine oil warning system with flashing bells and wistles. It really makes no sense that GM would remove this from production. I think I'd get a second opinion.

SETTLEMENT!


I've reached a settlement with GM as of this morning, and I've received the paperwork already from them via my attorney.

I'm heading out the door, but will give you guys an update on this whole thing soon.

It was a trick, they were just trying to get him down there and they've killed him to eliminate any more postings about this. They are now hacking the dealer computers to erase any and all evidence of his service history.

GM couldn't afford to offer up another deffective Suburban so they instead replaced it with a tax payer subsidized Volt.
