:iagree: Also tell them you dont feel safe driving that one .. but you loved the truck and gladly drive anohter.. just not that one .. The local media on speed dial is a nice touch .. also mention the wonder of the internet .. it can do them good if they take care of you .. Good luck and please keep us posted.Dang that's crazy! As another person already stated, you should have just let it burn.
If I was you, I wouldn't push for a new engine, I would push for a new vehicle! Tell them you don't want it back because it will never be the same. I would also tell them you would like to settle straight up and not involve lawyers but you will if need be. Also mention you have the local media on speed dial.
Just a question here. I'm not a professional (or even amateur) fire fighter. I don't think I want to get close to a burning vehicle. Don't some of them explode (or is that only on TV :laugh Isn't that what insurance is also for, roadway damage or environmental damages?For those that say they would 'just let it burn' - what are you going to do when the FD shows up? You could possibly be held responsible for any damage to the roadway from your burning car if you let it burn, or even any environmental damage due to the runoff.
I certainly wouldn't risk getting injured to put mine out.
Yeah, some do 'explode.' Usually the tires go once the air has been heated and expands to the point the tire can't hold it anymore. The magnesium in the steering column makes for a great fireworks show once you put some water on it. While I've never personally seen a gas tank blow, I've seen them leak a river of fire as the gasoline runs off.Just a question here. I'm not a professional (or even amateur) fire fighter.

:undecided So GM is dammed if they do or dammed if they don't. :crazy:Taken at face value, GM appears to be doing the noble thing by stepping up and taking responsibility without anybody asking/forcing them to. That fact makes me suspicious as Hell! There has to be something larger looming beneath the obvious. It appears to me that they are attempting to hide or cover-up an underlying factor by assuming ownership of the problem. Once they get the vehicle behind closed doors, they can then go to work on erasing and replacing the real cause which, if found out could have possibly cost them lots and lots of $$, i.e., lawsuit, class-action suit, etc.
