Motors (which they sold at a loss) but some cons made out. You made no mention that the deal was made over 13 years ago, you want free enterprise but this is exactly that (good for the Corp.) most of the American auto industry has been made North & South for decades. Heck China is buying up America along with others & has been doing so for decades, it's even better than Gov. owned like they know here it can be privately owned & our Gov. will give subsidies & even forgive all tax, it's free enterprise can't get much better than that (at least for a small %) not so for the average Joe American but just maybe he or she can get a job at a foreign owned plant in their own back yard. It' what the grand old party plan has been all about, FREE enterprise, it will take care of us all.

It was a worldwide recession for the most part. As I said the problem started long ago but not to worry what's good for business is good for America, I heard they are going to get Beyoncé to sing "See the Shanghai Bay in Your Chevrolet", everything will be good, keep buying.

I was complaining about all the issues I've had with my '07 Silverado (first new vehicle I've ever bought ... and the LAST) on a GM forum once. I got attacked by half the board for "complaining about stupid *censored*". Gee .... I'm sorry if I expect value for my $30 LARGE!!! With zombies like that, no wonder GM doesn't give a *censored*.
