Default GM claims not responsible for Impala problems from before bankruptcy



General Motors and its lawyers say the company isn't responsible for design flaws or defects caused by "Old GM," which refers to the pre-bankruptcy company General Motors Corp. (now known as Motors Liquidation Co.).

The company has asked that a lawsuit brought by a Pennsylvania woman over faulty tie rods on the 2007-2008 Chevrolet Impala be dismissed on grounds that "New GM" is not responsible for the old company'* gaffes.

The General'* lawyers say the company is responsible for claims against warranties set up under the old company, but never agreed to take responsibility for defects. Slick move, boys.

Given the way GM has treated owners over the years, NOT surprised at all.

I will never buy Government Motors new, let some other sucker deal with that.

Typical corporation. I would expect any other auto manufacturer (save Lambo/Aston/any other $100k+).
