Submitting a Product Report

Field Product Reports are an important tool that help us collectively identify andquickly address emerging issues on our vehicles, particularly during the launch ofnew programs.

A good rule of thumb when considering when to submit a report is whether it meetsthe “3 Critical Points” below:

Critical Product Concern: Safety, no start, walk-home condition.

-

Critical Timing: Safety Concern; Vehicle in dealership; Concerning plant build condition.

-

Critical Information: More detailed information, including photos or videos can be provided to enhanceunderstanding of the issue.

In addition to the examples of critical conditions noted above, field product reportscan also be helpful for communicating:

Wire harness routing causing damage (Critical information communicated with photos)Emerging conditions that have required repetitive repairs with no apparent servicebulletin or PI (Critical Product Concern)Significant issues not typically submitted as a warranty claim (Critical Product Concernor Critical Information)Vehicle operating normally but condition unacceptable to the customerCritical issues found during PDI or with GM Accessories

Service Information (SI) Feedback, not Field Product Reports, should be submitted for the following:

Issues with Service Information (SI) repair informationIssues with the Technical Service or Preliminary Information BulletinIssues with the Labor Time Guide

Important:Do not include personal opinions in product reports. State only the facts.
