What if your car has never had any problems? As much trouble as some people have had, I would be afraid that it would cause something else to go wrong. Do we know that this a final fix or another replace it and cross your fingers?

Serene will be a color! Even if only on one car.

New GM Recall

It looks like GM finally woke up to the differential leakage issue. A recall was posted on MSN at http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/22359333/. Since mine is in the shop for the fuse block falling off, maybe they'll fix this too.

Regards,

Gee, Golly, Gosh, earlier in the day we had at least 5 threads going until one of the mods merged them all together . . .

Until we know the actual details of the procedure there are two possibilities:
1. each and every car gets a new seal, regardless of conditoin or
2. each car is inspected to determine
a. it is leaking and will get a new seal
b. it has a verifiable old part # and will get a new seal
c. it has had already a new part# seal installed and needs no further action

Don't take it in until you get a notice in the mail from Pontiac . . . unless, of course, your Solstice is leaking diff fluid all over your driveway/parking spot . . .

Opinion please
if your car has never had a problem...can you put the recall notice on "Stand-by" mode

you know...the old...:"if it ain't broke...don't fix it"

you know...sometimes when they try to "Fix" things...it's not always for the better.

Does anyone know does this just involve cars that have the optional locking rear end or standard rear end as well?

Mine started leaking the Sunday I got home from d2's '06 SOS. I just got the 2008 replacement and the whine has been eliminated. So far so good...

NOTE: If you see a new thread start, don't post to it!! And don't post to it and here! I'm sure new threads will be started over the next few days if folks don't check to see if it's already been posted.

(Yet ANOTHER new thread merged into here...)

I had the vent leak and had it fixed over a year ago. Took a look under the car on Sunday and noticed the diff looked a bit oily. Couldn't tell if the spots under it were old or not. It's probably leaking, but since I'm not driving in now, I'll wait until I get the official word to see what's up.
