    Great job GM. Now if only some of these people here in the USA who hate GM can only wake up.

    Will GM remain number 1 automaker? China just might keep it on top

    Good news but the glass is only half full.

    Relatively low avg transaction price means that profitability of GM in China is much below GM NA. VW and others are much more profitable in China as they are selling premium vehicles in that market.

    Definitely good news on the Buick Regal and Encore units.
