I believe a philosopher from the '80s said those immortal words, "The future lies ahead." Surely others have said that over the years, I recall it was Gary Hartpence who uttered those immortal words.
That will never happen because these people are all way too smart to need someone to hlep make sense of their ramblings.
"It's like you found a finger in your chili, but you still eat the chili because you told everybody you love chili — it's tremendous!" - Alec Baldwin, SNL
IMO a bunch of yes men is how GM got into this mess they're in today...if you can take a good look at the below and tell me that it belongs in a $100,000 luxury sedan then I really don't know what to tell you except..."enjoy your finger chili"
No, I certainly do see GM's flaws, I just don't dwell on them. For example, overall I think the upcoming CT5 looks good, one controversial kink in the C pillar isn't going to bring me to my knees like it seems to do for many on GMI. I focus on the 99.9% of the CT5 that I like and go with that. If they brought out something that looks like the Pontiac Aztec where 90% looks bad, then yes, I have a problem.
My issue is you think only you and the other negative folks think only you see the flaws and that you are doing me a favor by showing me the true path. Like everyone else on GM, I have my own unique way of looking at GM - I am interested in their financial performance, understanding why they make certain decisions and their cars vs. the reality or imagined reality of the competition. Plus, my overall outlook on life is glass half full and I find the glass half empty view of many people to be discouraging.
Anyway, as it sits right now, it's kinda hard to be a glass half full individual when it comes to GM when there's only one drop of water in the glass. As it sits right now, the C8 and XT4 are the only un-flawed products unveiled in the past few...everything else has been at best meh.
When you need to "set the record straight" after years and years or reinvention and investment in a brand, you are failing. So sad to see.
Many Cadillac fans, myself included, just want the needle on the record once again.
Reuss' article makes it clear that a divorce between GM and Cadillac is best for both parties. The iconic Cadillac brand deserves much better than its current predicament being mismanaged by GM "lifers".
God and guns keep us strong. That's what this country was founded on. - Lynyrd Skynyrd
and to praise them when they do good work like new Corvette.
So not trying to jump on this exact conversation.....
The reality is that GM is steering the narrative by talking about sales
in terms of only retail customers instead of the whole segment.
GM may or may not be right with their determination but let's at least
try to find out the story behind the figures being presented to us.
(and that goes to Ford as well and their rotten Explorer launch in July).
I know that you respect my opinion and I will try to return that by
(RMC and I) delivering as much detail as possible so we can at least
discuss data and sales effect by the month (avoiding GM/Ford filtering)

To Mark Ruess and this article, Ahem-pure unadulterated rubbish.
