They mean power brakes. But the brake booster will hold 2 to 3 easy brakes. Same thing as pressing the brake pedal a bunch when you car is off and it gets hard. Air bags will work as well because capacitors in the system.

They got caught. Hind sight is 20/20

I think everyone know the ignition switches were cheap

>>14198817
Now what's the next step of their master plan?
>>
>>14198825
No one is saying they have a plan you idiot. They are just making decisions a they come. But no way in fuck they are forced to ACTUALLY pay those fines.

Still doesn't change the fact that hind site is 20/20.

>But no way in fuck they are forced to ACTUALLY pay those fines
Were you dropped on your head as a child? They HAVE TO PAY IT. There is no way out of it.

GM is a fucking horrible company. Deal with it.

>huur duur hindsight 20/20
They knew it was a problem and chose to ignore it. They knew it was responsible for deaths they still chose to do nothing about it. Only when they were threatened with sanctions so heavy it could only end in closing the doors did they choose to do something, and the number of $900m was settled on.

Its just fashionable to bash GM US now as it was to bash the previous fuckups

That said moderm GM suck and i would not touch a car made in the US after 2002
>>
Yes this is why non cucks buy fords.
>>
>>14199399
>Ford
Also American, therefore the same wretched morals.
>Toyota
The vast majority of the mysterious gas pedal faults were found to be user error, funnily almost all of them happened in the US where coincidentally no one can drive.
>VAG
The same emissions would've been considered perfectly fine and healthy ten years ago, all while critized in a system where regulations are far more lenient on pickup trucks and where half the population can rip out the catalytic converters without ever facing consequences.
>>
>>14199684
Blame Euro Emission standards
>>
>>14199700
No, I'm blaming the US for the broken domestic protectionist shithole it is.

If i'm not mistaken you are talking about the Sigma II platform? Cadillac now uses the Alpha platform which they developed themselves.

>Die because engine shuts off

Are people nowadays too dumb to be allowed to drive?

When I was 16, I used to go on a back road, speed up to 40-50 MPH, and shut the engine off so I'd know how it felt to drive without power steering and all that jazz.
>>
>>14199761
There are only two kinds of people in the world. Those who disregard GM and those who simply haven't known GM long enough.
>>
>>14202903
There's a third kind... The type who's fooled into actually thinking a domestic badged Daewoo is a domestic car.
>>
>>14199274
Yeah and all those oil companies that spill shit totally pay today $50 gorillian fines they are slapped with originally.
>>
>>14202891
Lol, who fucking does that? Do you come from a family that only buys american cars or something? Lol

I assume they meant the brakes losing power assist. They still work, you just have to put some leg work into it.

It was all part of an attempt to deny it.
