This Guy's 2015 GMC Canyon Caught Fire And He's Had No Luck With GM

We know from the multitudes of complaints to the federal government that sometimes older GM pickup trucks catch fire. But what happens when a newer GM truck catches fire? What’s it like dealing with the company? We didn’t have an immolated truck to find out, but one reader did. And it wasn’t good.… » 7/23/15 1:52pm 7/23/15 1:52pm

Watch This Old Truck Barf Out Its Engine Like A Sick Dog

Remember that part in Alien when the alien comes out of the guy?! Don’t worry, watching these dudes yank an engine out of an old Blazer (or is that a Jimmy?) isn’t too grotesque or disturbing. Unless you really like old Blazers, in which case, this might be tough to get through. » 7/18/15 9:00am 7/18/15 9:00am

GM Built A Modern Hybrid Citroën DS That Was Years Ahead Of Its Time 

I’m not exactly sure what was in the water or gin or drug-spiked milk or whatever American car company execs drank at the turn of the recent century, but there seems to have been an odd fascination with iconic French cars. Chrysler almost made a plastic 2CV, and General Motors seems to have built a very advanced… » 7/17/15 4:34pm 7/17/15 4:34pm

Why Hasn't GM Recalled These Two Trucks With A Similar Fiery Issue?

Last week, under threat of a federal investigation, GM recalled almost every Hummer H3 it had built because of a potentially dangerous design problem. Our analysis of a government database shows complaints of similar problems from owners of Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon, two trucks built with the same components… » 7/15/15 10:13am 7/15/15 10:13am

GM Didn't Recall The Hummer Over Fires Until The Feds Threatened Them

General Motors recalled nearly 200,000 Hummer H3s last week over fears that they might catch fire. But it turns out that GM knew that flaming Hummers were a problem for several years before that. And what’s worse, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration exclusively told Jalopnik that GM did not act until… » 7/13/15 5:50pm 7/13/15 5:50pm

GM Death Fund Won't Cover All GM Ignition Switch Deaths

To date, General Motors’ outside fund has approved 119 death claims and 243 injury claims related to the defective ignition switch that sparked last year’s recall crisis. The fund is set to wrap up soon. Before it does, critics — including some family members of those killed — are wondering why the fund is covering… » 7/01/15 4:40pm 7/01/15 4:40pm

Criminal Wrongdoing Reportedly Found In GM Defect Linked To 104 Deaths

A Justice Department inquiry found that GM’s failure to disclose a faulty ignition problem in their cars constituted criminal wrongdoing, the New York Times reported Friday. The penalty has yet to be determined, but it’s expected to be the largest ever faced by an automaker for criminal wrongdoing, surpassing the $1.2… » 5/23/15 10:14am 5/23/15 10:14am

GM Ignition Switch Death Toll Rises To 84 People

While 2015 has been generally less full of recall crises than last year, the fallout from the General Motors ignition switch fiasco continues unabated. Today, the fund tasked with overseeing compensation to victims of the switch and their families approved another four death claims, bringing the official death total… » 4/13/15 4:46pm 4/13/15 4:46pm

Your Complete Guide To The $21,000 Stick-Shift 2015 Chevy Colorado

The 2015 Chevy Colorado is a tidy and refined truck in $30,000 trim, but the experience is a little different with the bargain-basement rental-fleet spec. For $21,000 this thing doesn't even have a "scan" button on the radio, but it does have a six-speed manual transmission. What do you want to know about it? » 4/13/15 12:06pm 4/13/15 12:06pm

See The Chevy Suburban Grow Up In This Great Gallery Of Every Generation

A black 2015 Chevrolet Suburban was just dubbed the 10 millionth vehicle built at GM's Arlington Assembly Center. You don't care, but apparently that gave Chevy the excuse they needed to share this amazing photo album of the big, beloved SUV's last eleven generations. Enjoy! » 3/25/15 10:22pm 3/25/15 10:22pm

This Unofficial 2015 Chevy Colorado ZR2 Is Your Cheap Mini-Ford Raptor

GM fired us right up with the tough-and-tidy 2015 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 off-road concept, but all we get in showrooms are the flaccid Z71 trim and pointless "Trail Boss" package. If you want to see the Colorado turned into a solid off-roader that can you can still drive every day, the aftermarket has finally stepped… » 3/23/15 1:41pm 3/23/15 1:41pm
