problem #1

Oct 282006

(reported on)

S-10 Pickup

  • Automatic transmission
  • 40,000 miles

Ball joints at 40000 miles were actually in pieces. GM calls ball joints a 'wear' item, so it's not warranteed. Definitely dangerous. We almost wrecked this piece of scrap when the driverside joint failed completely.

GM seems to be the Nr 1 ripoff company in the USA!
