The Detroit News ran a special report on auto plants. GM Lansing was singled out as being competitive with Toyota's best!

Here's the graphical comparison with other automakers' best North American plants (initial quality of the CTS trumps Toyota!):

In another article in that report, it was stated:

If all of GM’s assembly plants operated like Oshawa, the automaker would reap billions in earnings, Cole said. “Not millions or hundreds of millions, but literally billions of added profit.”
I think GM understands this, and is working on upgrading their plants. As long as they can remain profitable (and the prospects for this are looking good), they can put money into improving their old, inefficient plants.

I also agree that the build times of the CTS are quite high. We should see the time decrease significantly and capacity utilization go up with the SRX and STS added into the mix.
