Hummer (over priced Suburban)
Oldsmobile (it an't my dads is right)
Opel (Man can't beleive they still make it)
Pontiac (Nice in the '60's)
Saab (was good till GM bought them)

Vauxhall (#2 seller in England, but junk)
This is how they got in a mess, Buying up companies that aren't making them more money than they spent to buy them... What are they thinking.
Why are we paying for a retooling?????? thats part of doing business... I don't care if it is national security (WHICH IT ISN"T) If we go to war and someone else owns it we just take it... We put the Japanese in camps in WWII, Took there stuff, and the Indians also "right Jimmy"
What it comes down to is bad business that isn't gonna change if they don't have to fix it themselves...
Look Ford bought Jaguar, and it wasn't making money then or now... Ford made the Jag look like a Ford and act like a Ford with a Jag sticker... My '89 has more character than the new ones... Ford screwed Jag up even more and know want to sell it.... The Big 3 need to work on there stuff not buying other stuff...
Can you please back up your statements with facts, there is a measurement of data out there and I'm sure that you are using those measuremnet, please share with us your knowledge that backs up your statements since you started this thread of GM's junk compared to Japans autos..........thanks
