    While it is a money pit, and I would like to see the UAW gone...

    GM technically is doing what's promised. They're cutting all but 3 essential and 1 non-essential brand.

    That task force needs to surf OT more. We've got everything figured out ready to go.

    GM should actually just give me the job as CEO. And I'd work for free.

    Chevy = Everything
    Caddy = Everything Luxury
    Buick = Kept in US, but not really sold unless you order from any Chevy/Cad dealer. Mainly to keep China happy.
    GMC = Fleet cars/trucks.

    BAM FINGERS IN THE PUSSY!

    Make the G8 the new Impala.
    Make the Sky a Chevy Sky.
    Ditch the Aveo and lower the cost of the Cobalt.
    G8 UTE could be the new El Camino...

    Etc. Etc.

    We don't need Buick in the US, GM can still have Buick in China

    Waste of money having GMC and Chevy trucks/SUVs

    Kill Buick in the US = Kills sales in China.

    That's why we just keep it for sale but with order only production in the US.

    How would it kill sales in China, the Buicks in China aren't the same in the US, they are better than the shit we have here

    Because the Chinese want to buy what we buy... Hence the whole westernization that's taking place over there, advance of middle class and plastic surgery, etc.

    If they aren't sold in the US anymore, the Chinese wouldn't want to buy them.

    They are giving Chrysler and GM an additional $21 billion before the 3/31 deadline.

    The head of Obama's Task Force has already said that bankruptcy is not their goal.

    They don't buy them because the US buys them, hell the US doesn't even really buy them, they buy them because they are decently nice cars in China, at an affordable price

    The ones that really want to be westernized and that can afford it buy luxury German cars, that is the same reason Cadillac doesn't sell in China, if they can get a Benz, BMW or Audi, they won't look at Caddy

    Wrong.

    Buick is rated as GM's most reliable brand, and tons of old people still buy them.

    Rated as a reliable brand and people buying the cars are two different things
