LOL... I hear you. I have never owned a GM car, but I am on my 3rd truck. Last one, I put 350,000 km on it and it was still going strong. My current one is at 230,000 km and I have yet to have a major problem (knocking on head...).
There was an infamous Chev van that required that the engine be dropped from it's mounts in order to access two of the spark plugs. That sort of thing is pretty common in their smaller cars I think. I suppose the designers overlook the odd thing like that!
