as we have seen over the years, it's one thing after another at GM, one excuse and reason after another. how many failings do we have to continue to endure before RIR is shown the door. isn't it funny how it is NEVER the fault of management, and I use that term loosely?Buickman's got a good point. This is definitely a down market not seen in a while, and GM is pretty weak financially. If you pit Toyota with their hoards of cash against GM, Toyota's got a clear advantage. I'm rooting for GM, and things are definitely improving for them product wise, but I'm afraid it may be too late. If they can get the Volt to market as promised, that may be the last hope. Time will tell.
IMO it is the fault of disastrous marketing, mistreatment of employees, retirees, dealers, and customers. GM just doesn't have a clue about retail automotive, which just happens to be the business we're in.
they claim selling assets allows them to focus on core operations. I say they do it to enrich the banks who populate the Board of Bystanders. RIR & CO truly don't have the first clue about how to sell cars. they throw money at problems and attempt to buy deals thru giveaways. the day of reckoning is quickly approaching as the well runs dry.
