Remember back when they got left and right parts switched and the self-adjusters worked backwards and loosened the brake shoes instead of tightening? Go figure.

This is too much to believe. Are workers there really trying to bury GM in the history of America? This sounds like plain stupidity or maybe just improper training.

All that tax payer money given to them while they were covering deadly issues with there cars and still can't seem to get it right. It would appear GM is in a death spiral that even billion of tax payer dollar couldn't stop.
