    As a new owner of GM, I expect a discount when it is time for me to buy my next car.

    Chrysler is handing out 1k rebates for owners of a Chrysler auto. I really do not like the new ones though. I wonder if I can get a check on my Tahoe though from GM?

    That's liberal for: It's dead.

    I have never worked on Ford parts oddly enough, so cannot comment on their quality standards. The best example of GM/chrysler quality standards in comparison to Toyota(the three I have made parts for), paint standards for GM and Chrysler allow fisheyes(a paint defect, as long as there is 4 fingers of space between them, depending on the surface in question(that is, how visible that part of the surface is). Toyota does not allow fisheyes.
    Interesting.

    I had a Toyota once. Worse vehicle I ever had. It was constantly in the shop or being worked on. Cracked a light lens once, cost me $60 to replace a 4" x 4" piece of plastic. Needless to say, it was still cracked when I got rid of it. I wouldn't get another one.

    They might be cheaper to buy, but try repairing one. You get soaked. Screw that. I'll take GM. Biggest problem I had with any of the GM's I owned, I replaced a fuel filter on one and a fuel pump on the other. Oh, and the brakes (drums on back, disc pads on front) I replaced on my 1990 after about 10 years. And the Allison is wonderful!

    Get real. You leftists take the cake.
    Yeah the leadership NEVER makes any financial errors or doesn't make the right kind of cars

    And as for your dealership, if they go under it will be CLOSING. So guess the cars they make aren't that good are they?

    They can't stay in business so they had to ask for a government bailout.

    Your classless remarks are noted as nothing but partisan DRIBBLE absent of facts and full of bile. Say goodbye to your GM dealership soon pal and it ain't Obama's fault it is happening, it is bad business practices of GM.

    GM's management failed.

    Then they begged the government

    Since the government loves sticking its fingers in anything they can. They decided to throw money at GM.

    Now GM is still failing

    and the government now has the precedent they need to stick their hands into more projects.

    WTF guys?

    Too big to fail?

    Kiss my ass.

    I want my tax dollars back.

    I don't think Obama and clan had any real interest in fixing the problem..they simply wanted to get their people on the inside so that they can take direct control.

    Look at most of their "solutions" across the board and you see them weasling their ways into nationalizing everything without admitting that is what they are doing.

    The other car companies are debatable, but when it comes to GM, I have no sympathy. In Canada, the CAW are the most unabashedly greedy bunch of freeloaders I have ever seen. The line workers get paid $16/hr. to start and go on strike to get more. It's no wonder companies want to outsource. Consumers then pay the price hike on the cars because the union is never satisfied. No one wants to pay more for a standard vehicle, just so that line workers with a grade eight education can make more and more money, just because.

    GM deserves to go under. Its management is spineless for giving in to the CAW every single time they cry, and that's why the CAW continues to do it; and the CAW is the root of the problem.
