Fire risk: GM recalls 303,000 Chevrolet, GMC pickups (USA Today)



In the world of recalls this is the real McCoy. Sometimes they issue recalls for silly stuff like a light bulb that burns up prematurely. Can you imagine doing 70 and suddenly you see fire flares shooting from the back of you truck.
Talk about the heartbeat of America.

GM, ford, and dodge would not be able to pay me to drive the new exhaust systems they have on vehicles now days. That is why I drive a 1989 ford 7.3l idi with a turbo and a straight pipe no fluids in my exhaust stream just pure American smoke. one more inefficient devise GM mad was the cdr valve or the check valve found on most vehicles and yes I toke the cdr valve of my truck and I am now running a good old American road draft tube. so suck it EPA


Just bought our new 2014 truck and have already had problems and now this. I wonder if I can exchange it for someting else if I feel unsafe.
