GM, Chrysler Sales Hurt By Bailout Pleas
Ditto that. Sub-par engineering, materials with built-in shelf life less than your dog's, utter disregard for the environment and, of course, contempt for their core consumers - the Americans. They've hocked $hiteous products to the individual consumers and the Local/State/Federal fleets for decades. When Chevy couldn't compete with its counterparts in Japan on their trucks' quality, they naturally gravitated towards the whole "patriotism" pandering ad campaign - with the racist/xenophobic Toby McGuire as their spokesman (IMO, and surely even in their hindsight, they should've gone with the Dixie Chicks). Goes to show you the depth of their genius! I suppose the Americans finally wised up and decided that their tax dollars aren't worth saving these zombie corporations.
