4 GM CONFIDENTIAL 4 Customer Care & Aftersales 4 Voice of the Customer Customer Verbatims for Cadillac Technicians T ALEXANDER They were absolutely on the ball they took the information they said the gentlemen would be here in two hours. He came in less than two hours and called before he came. He was just the nicest young man. He was very knowledgeable and very polite. I couldn't have had a better experience. This was the first time I've ever used it and I was actually blown away. P SCHILDT He was courteous, he was professional and kept me abreast of his arrival time. Straight up professional. F GARVEY ‘ He arrived early, he was prepared to change the tire, but when I asked him if he could repair the tire he went to his truck and he had all the equipment to do the job. So in my experience he went over and above the call of duty and was very quick. C PHILLIPS He was perfect. I know they were busy, they made room for me so everything was great!

8 Customer Care & Aftersales 8 Cadillac Service Manager Concerns

9 GM CONFIDENTIAL 9 Customer Care & Aftersales 9 Cadillac National Service Manager’s Council “Numerous stores have pulled out of Roadside due to the lack of incentive to the dealership. It’s been years since we’ve seen an increase in our base roadside fee, yet gasoline prices have increased three fold. Is there anything being done to provide any additional incentives to remain in the program?” (Tim Hilsey – Hill Cadillac) Roadside Assistance Manager, Stacey Dick

10 GM CONFIDENTIAL 10 Customer Care & Aftersales 10 Q: Participation has been decreasing due to lack of funding A: Customer Retention & Satisfaction Cadillac is committed to supporting the Cadillac Technician Program  July 17, 2009 Letter from Steve Hill, General Sales Mgr.

11 GM CONFIDENTIAL 11 Customer Care & Aftersales 11 Cadillac National Service Manager’s Council “It seems that Roadside is still dispatching independent providers for jump starts, lockouts, fuel delivery, etc., without first giving the dealership the opportunity to field the call. It was our understanding that for all customers requiring a roadside event our technicians would be given top billing.” (Mark Jones – Bayview Cadillac) Roadside Assistance Manager, Stacey Dick

12 GM CONFIDENTIAL 12 Customer Care & Aftersales 12 Q: Roadside is dispatching to independents not techs A: Dispatch hierarchy directs calls to techs Dispatch Hierarchy  1 a – Selling (if applicable) Cadillac Tech (paged)  1 b – Closest Cadillac Tech (paged)  2 nd - Closest Cadillac Tech (called)  3 rd - Closest Cadillac Tech (called) ---------------------------------------------------------------------  4 th - Dealer Preferred Service Provider  5 th – In Network Service Provider Dealer Flexibility  Dealer/Service Manager set hours for Dealer Availability  Dealer/Service Manager set hours for radius (min 30 mile radius)

13 GM CONFIDENTIAL 13 Customer Care & Aftersales 13 Cadillac National Service Manager’s Council “Negative CSI surveys have been generated due to rude roadside assistance agents. We have seen surveys returned with comments praising the technician but the customer slays us on the survey because of the rude advisor. “ (Mark Jones – Bayview Cadillac) Roadside Assistance Manager, Stacey Dick
