One could say things about what is now without doubt the biggest company joke in the history of the US - maybe global - automotive sector, putting even East Germany's infamous Trabant to shame.
Things like following the just announced latest recall of another 7.6 million cars across models from 1997 to 2014, and another 800K+ cars thrown in just because, GM has recalled more cars in the first 6 months of 2014 than it has sold in all of 2011, 2012 and 2013. Which incidentally would be true as the chart below shows.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
GM and the UAW are getting their “reward” for going along with Barry. Eat crow......
Government Motors. Get free recalls for the life of your clunker.
They’ll just be bailed out again.
Key point: I’m LOVING having this to throw in the faces of those that defended the bailout...
Have they given up on selling Volts to the dolts?? Haven’t heard anything about them in a while.
How convenient that this all happens after they sell the shares of the company owned by American taxpayers. I wonder how much of this was known before dumping the stocks.
“I wonder how much of this was known before dumping the stocks.”
Or before Bamster bailed out the UAW pension funds by “buying” GM.
Just spitballin here.....
Could we offer every illegal alien a recalled GM vehicle???
All they have to do is drive the vehicle down to the “special recall garage” located in Mexico.
Give them $15 for a successful one way delivery of the vehicle
Proving that Government Motors operates just as we would expect of any government agency.
I was driving along when it shut down. Luckily I was able to coast into a side street.
I was surprised how hard it was to steer and brake without the power steering and brakes.
1989? 25 yrs. old and it cut out on you? I hope you are being facetious.
I’m not kidding. The car’s in good shape. It only has 55,000 miles on it.
And the problem was the ignition system.
The announcement suggests worse, like the ignition rotating to the point where it would lock up the steering. That would be a scream. And they say in the meantime, use the ignition key by itself.
My steering didn't locked up, but it sure was hard to steer. I could only turn the wheel a little bit.
I'm not saying that GM is to blame for my 1989 ignition system failing while I was driving down the road, but that is what happened, exactly like it's been described in the news. The engine cuts out, and you lose the power steering and brakes. I was lucky that there weren't any cars around me and that I could coast into a side street where I could safely wait for AAA.
I had to have the ignition system replaced. I wouldn't expect GM to pay for it, given the age of the car, but it is interesting.
There's a Goodyear service center about a mile from my house, where I had the repairs done. When I was walking up there to pick up the car, a couple of cop cars pulled up and stopped me as a burglary suspect.
They didn't arrest me when they saw I was an old white man. (I had on a ski parka with the hood up when they lugged me.)
Glad I kept my word to NEVER AGAIN purchase a GM vehicle and I am sticking with my word.
I have a 2002 PU w/ 150K miles and also refuse to buy a new GM product.
After being for the most part a GM man and driving nothing but safe, sensible nerdmobiles (excepting a very fun TR-6) my entire adult life, a couple months ago we started car shopping by looking at a Cadillac SRX. Ended up getting a 2015 BMW X-3 M Sport (made in South Carolina by non-union workers) instead and haven’t looked back. Superb fit and finish, performance, and comfort for the same money. Sorry GM, you fail.
I'm with you now.
Let’s just say for a moment that the company here is name Enron instead of General Motors. And let’s say instead of Baraq Obama being the company spokesperson, we have Jeffry Skilling, Andrew Fastow, and Ken Lay. And instead of the Obama spokesperson talking up the stock price of GM by telling us how wonderful the company was while at the same time hiding its liabilities, we had Skilling, Lay, and Fastow going out there and talking up the value of Enron stop while keeping well hidden its many liabilities. Wouldn’t we want to try those people in a court of law for fraud and stock price manipulation? Why is it any different when Baraq Obama does it?
Now the post-bankruptcy stockholders will get screwed.
As George W. Bush said, "Fool me once, shame on, shame on you. Fool me, you cant get fooled again.
Well Nachum, just wanted to pass along that our California State Legislators don’t buy GM cars. State Senator Jerry Hill (RAT, San Mateo) just blew by me on I680 at about 75 in his new state-owned $100k Tesla. Is it wonderful how we have created a “legislative class.” Guy has a beard which makes his being a RAT a sure thing!
Nice work if you can get it :(
