So my Cobalt is now a statistic of the massive recall. Few weeks ago I was coming to a stopsign at our court when the ignition switched off, and now?
The battery that was perfectly in proper condition is dead as a doornail. Seems that when the improperly fitting key shuts off the ignition and is removed, it could fail to turn off various electrical systems.
Surprise! The dealership said they STILL haven't received the replacement ignition the recall will install after waiting nearly TWO MONTHS NOW. Not to mention they "wouldn't be able to get to inspecting it until Monday or Tuesday.
General Motors THEMSELF have said they would take care of it's affected consumers with loaner, etc.
So far I've not gotten replies from them here, or emails, and still can't find how they provide these services.
Copied this from my facebook posting, so since I'm putting it here I can be a bit more colorful with how upset I am.
FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK
(And Obama jus' because)
Decided that I will bring Oppo along for the already bumpy ride with getting GM to actually prove what makes them the most profitable company by actually going through and doing what they fuggin' say.
You all buckle up and for god sakes stop kicking the back of my seat or else this Volvo wagon is gonna pull right on over. Don't make me start counting....
Gathered what is nearing to be the equivalent of 1/4th of Appalachia's trees:
Tomorrow I'll attempt to garner the patience to call this 'Recall Hotline' GM has.
Wellp I have my Cobalt back in the driveway.
"Woah Taylor that was hella fast to get over with!" Is what you might be saying, minus the hipster lingo.
But oh no no!~
They take me as a moron and say the battery was simply bad/used up. What was said next has me kinda' up in arms and ready to flip all tables within a one mile radius:
"We still haven't gotten the ignition in to replace the one that is recalled. But it's safe to drive."
IS THIS SOME ELABORATE RUSE I AM TAKING PART IN GUYS. PLEASE SAY IT IS.
Because looking at this pile of recall alert notices from GM itself says there is a chance that uh, it ISN'T.
Days Since Sutherland Chevrolet of Nicholasville, Kentucky has supposedly ordered this ignition: potato
Nothing. Nothing has progressed since I last updated you all on JUNE 16th.
I honestly don't know what the hell to do quite frankly. Resale value dropped to full-retard levels it seems, which was earlier reported but just now hitting the big mass media outlets.
I'm getting actually pissed off just writing about this, so we'll see what happens in the future. Uhg.
