It appears we will be receiving yet another recall notice, this one associated to an issue with the accelerator pedal assembly's return springs.

GM recall notice # 05018

NHTSA Campaign ID # 05V046000

Looks like it effects quite a few other cars.

""Separately, the agency said 19,924 Cadillac SRX and Cadillac XLRs, along with Pontiac Grand Prix models from the 2004 model year, were being recalled because of potential problems with their accelerator pedals. ""





Exactly what I needed!!
I got a ticket going 120mph....I tried to tell the judge the pedal stuck...now I have the proof!! :thumbs

A solid defense strategy, as long as the outside temp. is below -22 degrees fahrenheit............you might experience some level of difficulty convincing the judge of that one considering your demographics.

Ah, Kings County. I had an uncle who was one of the original founders of the Superior Dairy Products. Some of the best ice cream available anywhere.

My wife and I used to fly back to Hanford (HJO for you pilots, yes I also have my PPL) on weekends to visit family in the area and always stopped by the Dairy for some of thier small-lot, hand made ice cream.

So we have had a few recalls and a few things go wrong with our babies.

If it was a FORD. aka Fraud, or "Fix & Repair Daily", we would just deal with it.

But, the wonderful Icon, Mercedes is in financial trouble do to Mercedes Bends & then breaks.

Around my area in Southern California, tow trucks and flatbed auto carriers are a dime a dozen carrying.................You guessed it. MB's Saw one being picked up and one carrying one today.

Granted MB's are a dime a dozen in this area, that's one reason I bought my XLR.

I heard on the news this morning that Mercedes is in trouble financially, again, I'm just the messenger
