GM to stop production of Buick Rainier
General Motors Corp. is discontinuing production of the Buick Rainier.
The Rainier, a mid-sized SUV, represents about 2.5 percent of daily production at the plant, with about 20 coming off the production line each day, said Tom Wickham, GM spokesman.
Wickham said GM expects increased production of other vehicles to offset the loss at Moraine. He said the decision about which models will see increased production hasn't been made, but will be set after dealer orders come in this spring. He would not speculate about how it would impact employment levels.
Wickham said employees and dealers are being notified about the decision.
