The Center for Auto Safety, a group founded by consumer advocate Ralph Nader, charged that General Motors Corp. unevenly applied warranties for transmission repairs and asked the Federal Trade Commission to investigate the auto maker's warranty program. The center contended that the auto maker reimbursed totally or partially the owners of some GM cars after complaints about transmission failures, but refused to do so in other cases involving the same problem. The complaint involved 2.4 million 1980 through 1982 model X, A and J cars.
