I guess that depends on what their "reality" is like.

I wouldn't buy a used car. Almost Never have and wouldn't want to inherit someone else's problem vehicle. I just like new and always have. Bought 1 used car for the youngest daughter as a high school car but followed it with a new one when she graduated college. Tough break for the plants that are closing. I wonder how many they have still remaining in Canada and Mexico? The bailout still sticks in my craw and now this.

Really don't care. I drive Ford trucks. You couldn't give me a GM product since the taxpayers had to float them something like $50,0000,000 and after getting it they still let their union continue to toss the company into the sewer.

My bet is quality control will be slipping on new units going out after this announcement. The powers to be did this as a way to help their bottom line. I predict it will blow up on them and actually start a major decline in that business. Lots of American consumers will remember the bailout and see this as a slap in the face.

I won't buy anything from Gooberment Motors! In a twist, in the wake of GM's announcement, BMW is planning another American plant!
Gooberment Motors moves are not about political economics, it's about the economics of poor leadership decisions and building products that people don't want!
