GM can swallow my load.

    After a quite short battle with GM to have the hood of my car repainted under their corrosion warranty, I lost. They insist that the oxydization is caused by stone chips, which anyone who has one working eyeball can see that there aren't any.

    They refused to cover it under warranty and said their decision was final. No review of the details and refused to discuss anything in person, only through their drones and that I should just accept their decision.

    Therefore, my options are limited and I won't be chosing a course of legal action, as the $1,000 it's going to cost me to get the hood painted isn't worth the hassle. I just won't buy another GM. Ever.

    Cliffs: GM can swallow my load.

    Didn't you post this somewhere else?
    Drape a big sign over the car that says GM won't honor their warranty on this car and park it near a dealership.

    Did you really think that you would get them to repaint your 4 year old car?

    So you basically have a small penis and you're trying to compensate?

    Did I really think that I would get them to repaint the hood of my car, which is bubbling at the lip due to poor workmanship and is still under warranty? Yes I did expect GM to honour their warranty.

    You'll have to wait until I get home and I'll take some then.

    The warranty is for rust through, not paint defects. You will almost never get any manufacturer to do any warranty work on paint after a year.

    GM has to save money somehow to pay the Union's demands. :eek3:

    I for one, will be happy to contribute to the demise of GM. :eek3:

    Sorta... my car had interior water damage due to crappy assembly. Car was down for 35+ days, poor reassembly, GM refuses to replace vehicle

    It is rust through.

    It's $550 to paint the hood, plus whatever it's going to cost me for a rental. I would have been happy if they offered 50% and a loaner.

    :werd: VW told my sister the same thing with her Jetta, there was a small area that started to fade after only a year. Fortunatly she was hit by somebody where the defect was and it was repaired by their insurance.
