Negative Comments Add Credibility
Consumer Generated media discusses the comments on the fastlane blog, stating that over half are negative for a particular blog post on the GM FastLane blog. While allowing negative comments is a good idea, if appropriate, I’d argue a company should let the people who comment know they are not going to respond if they don’t have the resources as I state in this article about the GM Fastlane Blog.

On 25-Sep-05 I had my brakes fail on my 1999 Sierra 1500 4WD 5-spd V-8 pickup. The problem was aptly diagnosed by my dealer, Talarico GMC. A recall had been issued on 22-Sep (amazingly) that called for cleaning, remounting and adding anti-corrosion material to both front wheel ABS sensors. Apparently the original assembly was prone to the sensors backing out and intermittently failing to send a signal. Great, it's all fixed. Here is the problem. If BOTH SENSORS fail, you have NO BRAKES! This is an unacceptable design and I think it should be fixed at the root cause. Failing this, I think owners have no choice but to disconnect their anit-lock brakes and hope that Ford (or Nissan) has done better desing for their next vehicle purchase. Have others had this condition occur?

Bought a beautiful new 2006 Chevrolet Impala LS. It currently has a little under 1100 miles...problem is that there is an occasional starting issue.....95% of the time the Impala starts right up...the other 5% it takes a few seconds to "catch." Had an on-star diagnostic...
and no codes...went to my dealer (excellent folks), and no codes, and could not be duplicated by the dealer......yesterday, this occured three times....always when the engine is warm....not sure what else to do?

Hey Larry and Alan, thanks for your posts, however this blog is more about blogging rather than cars. Also we are not associated with GM. You might want to check out the Fastlane blog or one of the numerous car forums!
