To be honest, GM can go f*ck themselves. They are the reason why we no longer have trolley cars as mass transit and why we don't have much in the way of high speed or light rail (they bought up all the trolley companies in the 40's & 50's and then converted over to buses. All made by GM of course).

And then they have the unmitigated gall to run asshole ads like this to discourage people into riding buses and buy huge gas-guzzlers instead to prove how awesome they are to everyone.

packman_jon: Anyone RTFA?

Suppliers gave GM low marks on all kinds of key measures, including its overall trustworthiness, its communication skills, and its protection of intellectual property.

So basically, their Tier 1 suppliers (the firms that sell parts directly to GM) hate them.

.. And that is because GM is like Walmart..

GM : F U .. give us a 5% discount a year over year

Tier  : Uh.. lemme check on that - sub suppliers, we need to offer 5% to GM

Subs : We can't do that, we are barely making anything on these knudler valves now!

Tier :  Hi GM? yeah , there is no way we can do that, let us explai...

GM : F U you effin worms!!  Give us the discount or we'll cut you out of everything.

Tier : Subs, give us the discount or we'l cut you out of everything.. oh and have 5000 conference calls with GM where they can scream at you maggots..

In Toyota world is goes like this.

 Toyota : Hello, what can we do to reduce costs this part?

 Tier - Uh.. wait .. what?  Um, we aren't making much at all on this now.

 Toyota: We understand, but could you share with us your margins?

 Tier : I guess.. we make 11%

 Toyota : Ok, if we send in our team of process experts and work with you to maintain that margin but lower overall costs through a VA/VE effort would that be acceptable?

 Tier :  Who is this you sick bastard..

loonatic112358: Cyclometh: I love my Volt.

Driven about 8 thousand miles, put gas in it three times. Drives great, handles well, gotten good support from my dealer for the few minor issues it's had like the outlet cover sticking, and is super comfortable.

I want one, but I worry that It'll fit me like a clowncar

I'm 6'4" and 225 pounds. The back seat is not exactly roomy (you won't get an adult behind you unless you want to squinch up a bit), but for the front seats it's fine.

Flargan: LazyMedia: All of the competition is subsidized by their home countries. When a car company dies, you don't get more and better competition, you just get one fewer car company.


I don't think people know how awful Toyota was in its early days. (They narrowly avoided bankruptcy and needed government support to put them back on track.)

At one time Japan made the cheap crap, now they make they make good stuff, then korea and taiwan made cheap crap now they don't now china does, except they're getting better

Eventually we'll run out of other countries and it'll be our turn again

realmolo: bdub77: Tr0mBoNe: I can see it... most of their cars have the aesthetic styling of a pancreas.

It's so frustrating that for a while the only semi-affordable EVs that didn't look like death traps were the Volt and the Leaf because I've never driven a Chevy I didn't hate within the first minute of stepping into the vehicle, the cabin is always poorly designed. Every time I step into a Toyota I feel like they built the car just for me. And with the Leaf it was merely an issue with distance - definitely a good commuting car but only 70 miles under less than ideal conditions is not good.

Fords are kind of in between, and Nissans always feel great except for the fact I always feel they have high center of gravity and I could flip them in an instant.

I won't have money to buy a new car for 3 years but then I'm definitely going with an EV or hybrid EV if it's within affordability - the Teslas are looking amazing.

Or, if you really care about the environment, and our dwindling oil supplies, and all that stuff, you could buy a used car.

I won't even get into the economics of buying a new car. Suffice it to say, a new car is pretty much the worst way to spend your money.

So, my '99 Jag XK8 is saving the planet? Sweet!

The only GM car I've ever owned was a very elderly, totally unrestored 1974 Nova (which I loved). I've rented a few in recent years, and Jesus God, those are some awful cars. The Aveo MUST have been designed by Chinese spies bent on destroying American industry. It was as bad as a '70s Chevette, which was my previous bench mark for worst car in history (including the '80s Hyundai Excel).
