Default Re: GM settles suit for faulty Saturn trans - GM states claims are "widely exaggerate

I still disagree. I don't see where Saturn did anything illegal, and this lawsuit is frivolous. Saturn builds a car and warranties it to last a certain time, outside of that, it's not their problem. So when buying a car, you should look at it as only lasting that long. Any time after that is bonus. Saturn covered this transmission fully under its warranty, and even extended the warranty to 75k miles. Sure, they build a part that doesn't last as long as some would like, but they build one that will last as long as they warrantied, or at the very least would replace it.

Seriously, these class action lawsuits (and the people filing them) are a big reason this country is messed up. It's not a super reliable car, you should have done your research before you bought it, or bought the car with a warranty as long as you wanted to keep it. It's YOUR fault for not doing your homework, or buying a warranty on it. not Saturn's fault.

That said, it's sad that its cheaper for Saturn to settle than to have to go through with the actual case. It just makes Saturn look bad, and pads the wallets of the attorneys involved. Lawyers-1 Society-0
