GM engineers are meet tomorrow to discuss

My car, like several others, was held in Oshawa for over a month this time last year.

Reason: Quality control for the manual transmission.

Yesterday, I drove the car for the first time in three weeks.

Immediately after backing out of the garage, I could smell a faint burn.

I have smelt this before, it just has been a while.

The clutch has stuck to the ground 3-4 times since I picked it up late last summer.

After reading how other people are handling their issues, I decided it was time to call the dealership.

I informed the service guy about the issues and when my car built etc.

He called me back 30 minutes later with this information:

He said there is a " big deal" meeting tomorrow with several GM engineers to discuss this issue.

In addition, he said this was the first he heard of the issue, but I could tell that it has been a much talked about topic through out the company.

He even added that the GM people he spoke to said " that the clutch smells and has issues in the comp and launch control."

I agreed with him, but said that is really not the issue because to me it has now become a safety issue.

I told him I could careless about the comp mode and launch control, I do not use it.

Again, safety is my issue.

After what I witnessed yesterday and with the car setting for three weeks and it smelling like it did. I felt that a call to dealership was warranted.

I do not drive it hard, I have got on it of course, but getting on it has never been an issue.

Backing up, on hills, or setting for three weeks the car should not do that.

I had the dealership pick it up today from my house and they arranged for a rental in the morning.

Just curious if any one else heard about this meeting?

First time I've heard of it personally.
If it's true, it'll be interesting to see what they come up with.
