You Don’t See This Every Day


Car RadioAlmost 51,000 GM Spark and Sonic vehicles are being recalled. The problem is not something in in the steering system, or unreliable brakes. Nope. It’s a radio glitch.

Unfortunately, it’s not the kind where GM is getting nailed for blocking reception of a favorite AM or FM station.

The problem is that the radio system is prone to locking up. That would lead to the loss of audio and display functions.

That in turn would lead to failures to warn a driver of a key left in the ignition or a seatbelt neglected.

We can only dream of the day when a vehicle  automatically reminds a drive that he/she has forgotten to turn in their favorite radio station.
