    Re: Recall Update: GM is still in the lead

    Looks like a good chunk of the GM recalls are b/c of the bosch brake booster and those "dangerous" mini van doors. Other stuff seems small/trivial except the tb/envoy windshield, wtf were they thinking.

    Re: Recall Update: GM is still in the lead

    That is BS. The numbers are inflated (even for Toyota) because cars on the same platform are counted more than once. Example: Cadillac's 2005 recall totals 5225 XLRs, when there haven't been that many produced. They recalled that same number of Corvettes, when in actuality the 5225 is a combination of the # of XLRs and # or Corvette's recalled.

    Same with Toyota - 150k ES330 and Camry's recalled total, not each.

    Re: Recall Update: GM is still in the lead

    Ascender (17,815 Units)
    1) Windshield not mounted fully, urethane sealant may not be applied in all areas causing the windshield to separate in an accident (February 2005)
    "May not be applied"? Sounds like sloppy labor to me.

    Who has the most products on the market, GM, so, it follows that the probability, of their vehicles being recalled, is high....

    Re: Recall Update: GM is still in the lead

    There are so many recalls by GM because they share so many parts between models. Fortunately none of GM's are really safety related, just annoying. Compare that to Honda where they have airbags that don't deploy right or loss of steering.

    Well, Aston Martin takes the prize for most dangerous recall... Likely resulting in a crash, that really sucks...

    Re: Recall Update: GM is still in the lead

    From what I hear on the news, I would have thought Ford, Honda and Toyota had more recalls. I don't know how GM or DCX can reduce their number of recalls- it doesn't seem like there's ever a clear solution for things like this (to prevent the recalls from ever happening).

    Ford Motor Company designed, developed and validated its own hybrid powertrain system. In fact, Ford expects more than 100 patents to be issued covering this unique Ford hybrid system.

    Re: Recall Update: GM is still in the lead

    I would like to see the number of recalls per 1000 vehicles. It would be much easier to compare.
