    Sounds pretty minor compared to recalls on some newer cars ..

    That is kind of my point. A bunch of sensationalized BS propagated by bean counter engineering.

    So, pontiacgp's link referenced a recall to "get these cars off the road". Hypothetically, how many of you guys would comply if you got a letter in the mail from GM offering a buyback for your car?

    Ps. Sounds to me like it was a drunk driver problem that got the ball rolling. Let me guess, he wasn't insured so the lawyers went where the money is.

    That whole thing was tragic, yes, but it's not the car's fault. Take any car from anymake of that era and have some reckless drunk dickhead slam into it at "50-70mph" and it'll do some damage.
