How does that compare to other 2 year old cars? I checked out the 300C and it had 61. The Mustang had 26.

How do I feel? I'd buy another GTO in a heartbeat.

NO you should not be worried.

None of the cars have 32 issues with them. Some have a few, some have more than others. Many have 0 issues.
Most are minor annoyances

I'd bet if every car manufactured had TSB's posted on them as ours, most would have as many of not more TSB's than the GTO's.

I bought my '05 GTO in Sept, 1, 2006. It was used and had 13,000+ miles. I noticed the TSB list on www.edmunds.com posted #9 by S2kraka on 3-13-2006 did not mention the issue of front strut rub. I think I may have that issue.
Also, I noticed on the forum a few of the members said they have had their differential replaced due to whine. Is TSB #32 specifically referring to the rear diff. whine issue? I don't think I have that issue.
Finally, what is the current date of the TSB list. I wonder if the front strut rub issue has been added. Anyone know?

Wow! After 130+ complaints of strut failures on brand new cars and GM wasn't forced to recall??? Unbelievable.

I'm still nervous about my June '06 build car, because nobody has posted VINs, but so far (400 miles) so good. My car doesn't have a label with a build date; probably because it's a cheap overseas replacement, huh? It just had an undecipherable label (bunch of numbers and letters). Later.

Nope. A TSB just helps a tech fix your vehicle. It is not a recall.

Email GM with your vin and they will provide you with your cars build date. I tried to get it from Holden and they advised me that they couldn't provide those records because the car was an export. GM came back in about two days with the date my goat was built... May 10th, 2006.
