Only the bottom line!
GM filed a request with NHTSA in January to avoid recalling some of its SUVs and pickups equipped with Takata airbags, the third time the Detroit automaker has sought relief, according to a Feb. 6 GM filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The petition concerns the so-called GMT900 vehicles, which include the Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra pickups; the Chevy Tahoe, Suburban, and Avalanche; the GMC Yukon; and the Cadillac Escalade.
In the disclosure GM said it hasn’t set aside money to perform the recalls, but it estimates they would cost $1 billion if carried out. In its earlier petitions to be exempted from the recall, GM argued that the design of its Takata airbags differed from that of others in the recall, and its own testing and field data suggests there’s no defect in these vehicles.
And people can’t understand why I would never own a GM?
