  1. I have a 2009 Pontiac G5. I went through a Tim Horton’s drive through and rubbed a curb there was a piece of metal sticking out ,it put a whole in my tire and bent my axle. I am waiting for some answers from GM. Total cost to me is over $2,000.00. No damage to car I just rubbed the curb with my tire. Dealership said that this kind of damage you would think would be caused by a bad accident. Gm is not calling me back they say it is not under warranty. I told them they should look at it as leaving a drive through you are not going very fast. And you would think the axle would be stronger then that. What kind of damaged would of happened if I was in a real accident???? We went back and pulled the steel pole so there was movement.
