I'm glad someone else looks at it the same way. Instead of hiding it under the bed sheets, they're taking responsibility for their actions in the past and doing something about it.

If they really cared that much, they would have gone back, and recalled most of their V6 engines that have weak intake manifold gaskets.

Strange: GM gets in trouble because thier ignition switches turn off the car while driving, and Toyota gets in trouble (runaway throttles) because their push-buttons they use DON'T allow you to turn the car off while driving that easily.

Interesting dichotomy, eh? And with 9 of the 13 reported incidents suggesting driver impairment in decade old car, too.

Absolute baloney as far as I'm concerned...

I don't know about being "complete" baloney but it does underscore how many things have to go wrong. Bad switch, too many keys on the ring, bad driver and bad luck. Remove any one of them, and voila! no incidents.

I'll say this for them - they're persistent to the point of driving me batty with recall notices on the ignition cylinder for the Solstice.

They've sent at least two letters to the lake house, which is the address I used for the purchase of the car.

They've figured out I have another address for the other Pontiacs, and have sent letters there.

The other day I got an e mail about it.

Now, I'm getting postcards from the dealer about the recall.

I think it's been almost two years since the car has moved from the garage, so I don't have much interest in getting it out just for this recall (GM knows this too - the OnStar subscription is still active).

Particularly when the switch works just fine.

I understand erring on the side of caution, but this seems really overblown.
