Thread Name: BS: Bye, bye, Pontiac...
Subject: RE: BS: Bye, bye, Pontiac...
Minds me.... last fall, I had The Crawler in fer some work. An old buddy was working on a Pontiac Montana van in the next bay.

Can't recall exactly (no pun intended), but I think the front rotors were shot.... not just shot, warped, so no way to even try to turn them. The van was just over three years old and he was pissed off because he had to tell the owner, sorry, can't get them. The company that was making them for GM stopped because they weren't getting paid by GM for those replaced under warranty.

Just over the three year warranty and the Montana was dead in the water. Would not pass safety inspection and no way to get rotors. Only option... custom made at a machine shop. Price... at least $500... each. (Yeah, price gouging, but, whaddya gonna do?)
