You realize it was a lease, right?  He didn't own the car. 
 

There was no reason whatsoever to make lease payments on a car that was not in his possession. It's easy to blame "the man", but it's also not too hard to stop writing checks. 
 

I'm gonna stop now. We have been through this ad infinitum in this thread, and nothing good can come of this. 
 

I've been clear. We disagree.

Me: "You can't walk away from a lease when the lessor asserts there is no issue."

SVreX: "You don't seem to realize it was a lease."

Oh well.

Without a lemon law, GM is the authority about whether they themselves are in breach of contract until lawyers are involved. That's... not ideal.

Yep. Missed that. My bad.

Still doesn't change the fact that I wouldn't write the check for services not rendered. 

My experience is that large companies have no reason to want to let something like this go unaddressed. Especially when it's stupid easy for them to fix- just swap cars.  They don't even have to worry about the title- it's a friggen lease. 
 

Im not blaming the OP, but he's not blameless either. The right way to deal with this problem was to recognize it was a lease, and therefore not get worked up about the problem. Self-diagnosing and emotional trauma followed by a year's worth of online griping simply doesn't help. 

GM was aware of this thread.  They have no need for it to perpetuate- it's bad for business, and easy to fix.  So apparently, there is more to the story than we are being told.

I don't deal with problems by blaming "The man".
