    Now that your tax dollars are supporting the second biggest auto company in the world. The next time you need a new vehicle....will it be a GM or your competitors?

    I never cared so much about a particular brand. If it's a good car, it's a good car. That said, most GMs suck ass.

    No. I'm going to get something reliable and fast, like a Tuk Tuk.

    it all depends on the reliability to me. i own a 05 honda with 177k miles on it. i don't know if any gm product could do that without significant cost of many repairs

    Government Motors? Hell no. I want them to fail miserably with the government running them.

    I'm hoping they fail and have to have a liquidation sale... I was hoping on getting a g35 around December, but if the price is right, I could be persuaded in a different direction.

    Waste of a post. I could just as easily talk about the 4 different Chevy/Olds cars that I have had that have done that easy.

    I voted not sure and hate obama, but I would prefer that the company itself become competitive and successfull again, assuming the government gets out if the company can right itself.

    i think if they get rid of the union they could have a chance. but as long as there is a union you will have those lazy fucks that use there seniority to get away with doing shit work at a shitty pace.

    every job should be performance based. if you do a better job than the fuck stick thats been there for 16 years.... you get paid more

    My tax dollars support a lot of things already. It's not like I am out there buying up welfare moms, although they would probably ride better than GM products.

    Some of the most efficient auto plants in North America are UAW plants. Im not a fan of seniority though...i think for the most part people in the same trade on the same job should get paid similar. If you suck, you should be the first to get laid off.
