The recall notice from GM says, "Your vehicle has a condition in which the transmission cable may fracture. When the fracture occurs,. . ." followed by possible dire outcomes.
Now the thing that got my attention was that the letter says, "When. . .". It does not say "if." Seems to be a strong element of certainty there, right? Then they tell me "PARTS ARE NOT CURRENTLY AVAILABLE. When parts become available. . ."
No certainty there, is there? The parts will, at some unspecified and uncertain time magically "become available"?
I have another recall letter regarding an entirely different issue on the same vehicle, same story. I received it two months ago. Haven't heard anything further on that one, either.
Just for smiles, imagine, if you will, all the millions of vehicles which have "a condition" encountering the "when" simultaneously all over this land.
