Re: GM wants to play with YOUR money

I did buy a smaller more economical car. Just wasn't going to be a GM. Nor will it ever be. The closest I would go back to buying an American car is if Chrysler gets a version of the Alfa Romeo Mito.

Re: GM wants to play with YOUR money

Didn't bother reading past the headline eh?

Quote:
Martin acknowledged such a gas tax hike would be very difficult, if not impossible, to pass, and added that GM is not going to actively push for a gas tax hike as part of its legislative agenda.

I read it. I still wouldn't buy a GM.

Re: GM wants to play with YOUR money

I was talking to the OP.

Although I'm not sure why you're so intent on publicizing which cars you wouldn't buy when that has nothing to do with the topic at hand.

I read the fucking article and I still don't like the bullshit. I don't want to be forced into driving anything. GM needs to start building something people want and quit worrying about legislative agendas.

You could say that about every automaker. GM is no different.

The coupe is a little strange looking, but the sedan is fine. And the wagon is cute.
