    Trump Administration Rejects GM's Request to Avoid Tariff on Buick Envision

    The made-in-China Envision will apparently be subject to a 25-percent tariff.

    The Trump administration has reportedly rejected General Motors' request for a tariff exemption on the Buick Envision.

    The Envision is among a small group of vehicles that are shipped from factories in China to showrooms in the US. It is consequently exposed to the administration's 25-percent tariff on vehicles built in China.

    The company told Reuters that it is aware of the relief denial and has been paying the tariff since July. The company has not raised the Envision's $35,000 price tag to offset the additional costs, however.

    It is unclear if the tariffs will affect GM's plans to bring other made-in-China Buick models to the US, such as the Encore GX.

    Good. I'm very glad that the Trump Administration shot their stupid exemption request down.

    There is zero reason for this car to be made in China instead of here in GM's home market. Give it to Lordstown. Give it to Oshawa. Give it to anybody other than a foreign country for all I care. We have the talent, we have the capacity, and we have the means to make it happen.

    Hey GM... don't like tariffs? Make the ****er here then!

    Good. Raise the price to include the tariff increase. Then, maybe sales will fall and they can cancel the damn thing or bring it stateside to build.

    China is a big market for GM and I have no problem with them building Buicks there. To sell in China.

    If they want to sell Buicks in the US, build them here. There's a big factory in Lordstown that isn't so busy right now. Or build them in Oshawa and try to take a step toward rebuilding the collapsed market share there.

    In the past, I've had a 5th gen Camaro, a CTS sedan and coupe, two 3rd gen Firebird Formulas, a convertible 4th gen Trans Am, a Reatta, a couple of Monte Carlos, an Avenger coupe, a couple of Cavalier hatchbacks, a Saturn SC1, and a Cherokee.

    If scale is the issue, they can develop a Buick version to be built alongside the Equinox/Terrain...like a normal company.

    I agree! Same with the Mexico factories. Put our people to work first. Screw it if it costs a little more. Can't have it both ways.

    GM is obligated to request every handout, bailout, and exception possible in the interest of its shareholders.

    I'm obligated not to support a communist country. Buy American (where I can). Did you see on the news how the Chinese gov erases history for their people? The 1989 Tiananmen Square uprising where protesters where run over by tanks is an unknown fact to the current generation.

    Oshawa is still looking for product.

    If I was GM I would just halt imports for now. Taking a 25% hit on each car would be crazy.

    Here is a thought, start by confiscating the 22 million you over paid your worthless CEO to help recoup the loses she helped create.

    And it is the Gov'ts responsibility to quit giving handouts and bailouts to corporations. It is time to end the handout that is the federal tax breaks (GM has paid no federal tax on their profits for over 10 years). That money they have received, and continue to receive, technically belongs to the American people (the ones GM chooses to replace with foreign workers)

    I wish the various governments would stop providing welfare to the able-bodied welfare parasites that somehow manage to have money for beer, cigarettes, tattoos, reefer, lottery tickets, etc. - but expect others to pay for their medical care and housing because they “have no money”.
