Glad to see it go public and see everyone with much the same opinion. GM sucks ass and their warranty folks are a ****ing joke.

The process for Jalopnik was simple, I've reached out to Motor Authority now and will email several other sites too. Any suggestions?

I loved my Sky, but GM is a such POS company. I'll never own another product of theirs.

First they had the Ignition recall which they knew about for more than a decade before they got busted for it. People actually died.
Saturn Sky's, Pontiac Solstices, and the Opel GT variation all had an issue with the passenger Airbag sensor. GM recalled the same part on all other GM vehicles that had it but said FU to all Sky and Solstice owners.

It took a private citizen to open a case with the NHSTA to have an investigation opened, and now 11 years later they are addressing it.

Looks like Chevy trucks have a similar issue to your Camaro.

I think you should lawyer up. This is bull****. GM needs to be out of business.

Didnít have time to write a full reply earlier but wanted to thank you for providing some history into other GM **** ups.

Yeah, I think there is something here with their airbag deployment strategy for sure. The car had no damage to it anywhere other than a scuff on the tire itself.

Itís ridiculous. Thankfully, I didnít report it to insurance or the police so the repair doesnít appear on the car fax.

Unfortunately no, but maybe going the NHSTA route like the guy on the Sky forum did would be an idea.
GM can’t dismiss them.

I bet the guy who did this for the passenger airbag sensor could give you some pointers on how to submit it.

Truth!!!

Fyi. I love my 4C and I can also attest to the new Miata and Fiat 124 are extremely reliable and fun cars.
The Fiat has the advantage of a Turbo engine compared to the Miata.

I know these are not 650hp+ beasts but maybe they will fill your car desires especially if you want to continue Auto Crossing.
Its hard to top a miata in AutoCross fun levels

I'll try that, thank you!

In the meantime, i've submitted my story to a law firm. Will update if I hear back (it's going to take them awhile).

The car is fun to drive, but I don't like having thoughts about the safety systems in the car while I'm out driving it.

Miata is definitely on my list and I really like how the Fiat 124 looks too.

Power is something I'll take a step back from (hard not to from 650), and something smaller would be nice too.
