    Recalls: GM SUV window switch recall urges owners to park vehicles outside
    2014-08-07

    It's not unusual for there to be a lag between an automaker announcing a recall and the official documentation showing up on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website. So it's no surprise that a recent GM campaign took about a month to appear in its official capacity. However, there appears to be some big differences between the two ...

    Report: GM extending warranties on Cadillac CTS-V and Chevy Camaro ZL1 for supercharger issue
    2014-06-04

    Okay General Motors, we've sat by and watched you recall the compact cars, crossovers and pickup trucks, and aside from reporting on it, we've been fairly quiet. This, though, this will not do. We can almost tolerate the recalls on the bread-and-butter cars, but leave the performance vehicles alone. According to a report from The Car Connection, GM has ...
