    The problem with Cadillac, Mark Reuss, and GM generally:

    Editor's note: The Automotive News Data Center classifies the XT4 as a compact premium crossover, and it was the No. 5-selling nameplate in the segment in the first half of this year in total sales. GM places the XT4 in a different category, and Reuss' comments refer only to retail sales.
    "BY OUR OWN METRICS, XT4 IS #1—DAMN REALITY."

    XT6 deliveries began in June, and we sold more than 1,000 units in July before its August media launch. We expect it to do even better based on the largely positive reviews, despite a hotly competitive segment and recent reports to the contrary in this publication.
    Absolutely pure puff, but I'm sure the idiot means every word, because if you release a product that you expect to perform poorly, you're not stupid—you're a villain.

    Also, we have customers who want the palpable thrill and exhilaration of out-and-out performance, and our V-series vehicles will meet and beat their expectations.
    The V-series vehicles have already missed and failed my expectations by your horrendous mismanagement of V straight into the **** pile.

    And why is that? Pretty sure you haven't driven one yet.

    See post #131 in this thread for a good explanation about why sfbreh is not alone in his assessment of the latest Cadillac V-series vehicles.

    There’s just not enough car buyers anymore, so even if Cadillac got everything perfect with its cars I doubt that it would make all that much difference to sales. They’re basically fighting for a piece of a diminishing segment, so basically set the price and performance levels to match remaining buyer expectations and just get whatever sales Cadillac can. It’s all to late in the game to keep criticising Cadillac for past decisions and just be glad that they still make them

    Yes, the GM grand plan: Shrink oneself to world domination. We'll make it up with Chinese volume. Great idea. Not.

    Thank you for the translation. You speak corporate jive quite well. There's a future for you in PR, young man.
