    GM Brand logo on all cars. Yes or No?

    GM is going to start installing their corporate logo as a 1" square badge on to all their new cars. Do you like the idea?

    No. I don't like it, it's clutter.

    I voted yes. Thouh I do like the idea of the badge on all GM vehicle to bring the brands further together, I do not think the badges should be on the exterior. They should be on the inter somewhere. Maybe something small on the dash or under the vehicle's badge on the steering wheel made to blend in with the steering wheels material. Just not on the exterior. If I buy a new GM vehicle, I would most likely have the badge removed.

    Use a big "GM" logo on the made-for-fleet cars like the Malibu Classic and don't associate them with the brands they were originally from. I don't see a problem with the GM badge idea, tho - I think its kind of cool.

    They should retain the tried and true blue background logo. The new ones I've seen in pictures are all chrome with no color. That GM logo has been on more seatbelt buckles than any other logo out there. KEEP IT BLUE!

    I don't see what the huge deal is? the logo is so tiny anyway, why is everyone wining about it, I am sure you can take it off if you want, grab a straw, suck it up. This is not going to change there mind.

    Stupid stupid stupid. Spend the money on better interior materials or a useful cupholder. Until recently GM has had little to be proud of. Wait until you've arrived. This is huffy mega-corporation thinking at it's finest... or worst. And when people are starting to come 'round to the idea that Cadillac can be a world class luxury contender, they're going to tie it to a Pontiac Aztek? Stupid. I just can't say that enough. Just stupid.

    It's the idea behind it, Baja. How back-asswards GMs thinking is. This "program" will cost them millions... is this the best spending plan they could come up with? If the GM badge meant anything special it would be one thing. It doesn't. It won't bosst sales on any model or make. They never really got it, and I'm starting to think they never will.

    GM is spending the money in all the wrong places.
    Is this emblem added to everything they have now? Are they going to replace somehting with it? I think it might be to much.

    Not only is it dumb, but I hope to all that is powerful that pulling that extra emblem off the vehicle won't ruin the facotry paint job. GM should get down to the issues that need to be resolved before worrying about frills like extra badges.

    It is irrelevent. My only concern is whether executives at GM actually believe this will help sales.

    If so, it is proof of how clueless GM management truly is.
