    I think I'd kill off Buick before Pontiac, no?

    why? Buick does great in the Asian market. If anything they needed to consolidate Hummer to the GMC or ditch it completely, but Pontiac has been struggling everywhere.

    I just meant style wise, the line seemed more appealing. I didn't know Buick was that big overseas.

    Being huge in china doesn't mean shit, it's not like they buy it because we buy it

    GM needs to do a lot more than "consider" dropping Pontiac.

    Honestly Buick here would be great if it wasn't for the stigma attached to it. It's a very reliable, solidly built car offering plenty of feature for a price that is almost unmatched right now. However people have been brainwashed into thinking anything American made is junk, which is ridiculous.

    Buick would be great if they brought the Chinese Buicks to the US and not let us have the US versions

    it may not mean shit, but, why cut off a profitable revenue stream when they can cut off brands that are losing.

    sorry but the UAW and the government did their equal share as well. When you have congressmen making reckless statements like "dinosaur technology" and "gas guzzlers", without knowing a damn thing about the current model lines or technology, what do you expect is going to happen?
