After hitting a big block of wood, one busted wheel/tire, a re-alignment and a possible wheel bearing as the only casualties speak well of the car's durable suspension. I guess the only fault besides the trucker who lost that block would lie with GM dealer parts pricing! It is absurd that you can buy an aftermarket set of new wheels for less than the price of a single replacement.
Was there ever a resolution to the 'ice trough' that kept windshield wipers frozen up in winter?
