2008 Chevrolet Impala 50th Anniversary Edition

General Motors and its lawyers say the company isn't responsible for design flaws or defects caused by "Old GM," which refers to the pre-bankruptcy company General Motors Corp. (now known as Motors Liquidation Co.).

The company has asked that a lawsuit brought by a Pennsylvania woman over faulty tie rods on the 2007-2008 Chevrolet Impala be dismissed on grounds that "New GM" is not responsible for the old company's gaffes.

The General's lawyers say the company is responsible for claims against warranties set up under the old company, but never agreed to take responsibility for defects. Slick move, boys.
