Also, a dealer can look up the VIN on their database to see if the car has had recall work done.

Hey guys! Finally finished being sent in circles by too many people. Called dealer, told me to call GM, GM said call another dealer, dealer told me to call GM... jeez. And Firestone tried to be helpful but all they could say was, "Well, we know your UIM failed but we've never seen it cause an explosion like that." I had to mention the FPR to them, thanks guys Wouldn't have known any better!

Currently I'm trying to get Pontiac to cover the repair since all of this mess was cause by the recalled part (as many have suggested), should I continue to go through with this? They said they'd call me back in 2 days. (This thing is beginning to remind me of The Money Pit.. "It'll be two weeks.")

If GM pays to have it fixed or has it done for you... it'll be worth gold.

For a complete discussion of the FPR Recall, see this thread:

Info on Defective FPR: '98-2000 Recall (L36 Engines)

BTW, I think that you should pursue GM on this one. This has the advantage of having been very dangerous and involves a safety factor. Two key concerns for GM legal.

i would definitely try to have gm pay for it, but they may not since they sent you/your dad the recall letters and he never got it fixed. but they might just pay for it to avoid any legal action

True...however, if the title is in her name now, she should not be responsible for the actions (or lack thereof) of the previous owner, regardless if it was her father... it'* the same as if she bought the car from Joe Blow down the street.

Well then, dont admit that any paperwork was recieved in regards to the recall if they ever ask. Just tell them that you have NEVER recieved ANYTHING regarding it.

Lying is wrong. Explaining how her Dad didn't know better or understand that it was a life threatening issue (as stated on the recall notice) would probably get her further.

Wouldn't neccessarily have to lie, but you don't need to volunteer any information either. Just tell them that you just got the car, and therefore you haven't received any notifications. No need to admit who the previous owner is, unless thay ask that specific question
