    I would think their claims of unconscionable conduct have reasonable grounds based on their comments in the article but good luck getting a win against GM in a timely manner (i.e. they will drag it out longer than the dealers will be able to sustain) and even if they do win even better luck getting and payment out of GM.

    Sadly GM's going to take them to the cleaners. Good luck to them, but it'll be a fruitless battle. It's a bit like David and Goliath, except Goliath's jacked, and has been busy hitting the Gym and learning BJJ.

    I wonder if we may have to get some parts from US further down the track?

    Doubt it seems lots of dealers ( multi franchise) are off loading Holden's to close mid yr. With the way GM is treating them I can see many caring about after service

    5th gen Camaro share a lot with the VEs, same platform.

    Interior parts are going to be hard to source unless the aftermarket decides to get on board with it. Maybe Rare Spares can get a hold of all the tooling?
