Posted on 07/07/2011 11:50:43 AM PDT by Nachum
NEW YORK--To spur sales, General Motors is offering a year's worth of car insurance along with any new GM car purchased in the states of Washington or Oregon. (Snip) The insurance -- part of a marketing test that will run through Sept. 6 -- includes both liability and physical damage coverage, GM said, and exceeds the minimum requirements in the two states. Oregon and Washington were chosen for the program because GM hasn't been gaining market share in those states as quickly as it would like, GM spokesman Tom Henderson said.

Note to GM. your crap stinks and no one wants it. Polshing it just makes it a shiny turd.

At taxpayer expense.
Let’s see if I get this right:
1. I pay taxes.
2. I pay my own insurance.
3. Some of my taxes went to bail out a car company that uses overpaid corrupt union labor that can’t build vehicles with any lasting value
4. More of my taxes are going to pay to insure these vehicles.
The revolution is coming, and I volunteer to operate the guillotine.
Government Motors attempts to hurt another industry (insurance).
Of course, it is difficult to be sympathetic to insurnace companies...
>>> GM to offer free car insurance
That brilliant move should pull them out of the financial hot trouble!!!!11!1Eleventy...../s
Seriously, can’t we the people fire whoever came up with this idea, without their compensation?
Or whenever GM Insurance has to pay up, it is deducted from these geniuses’ salaries/compensation packages?
Likely a gubmint/aka ploy to takeover auto insurance now...

Pretty funny. Nothing is free.
This is so far from legal that 0bama et al will work really hard to figure out yet another way around laws.
Good. The stock market is sensing that 0bama is turning into a flaming goofball and that he is becoming eminently beatable. Shhh. Don’t tell anyone!
What a deal if you have three or four DUI’s on your record!
Car Insurance waivers?!!!!..... What a concept...
Sounds to me like Obamacarinsurance.
Greasing the precident slope if ya know............
Why not free gas? Think about it!
backed by the full faith and credit of...uh...well, never mind...
I am boycotting GM and Chrysler forever because of their immoral actions in having the company nationalized, stiffing the rightful claimants on their assets, and sticking the American people with the bill. There is no situation in which I would buy, rent, or accept any GM product ever again. I don’t deal with crooks; that corrupt company is dead to me.
As for insurance, if any real company forms a connection with GM, I will drop any policy I have with them and boycott that company forever too. I closed my accounts with Citi and B of A, among others, after the TARP fiasco, and I’m willing to put insurance companies on the permanent boycott list too.
Your tax dollars at work. So nice of you to purchase car insurance for the libs in WA and OR so they will buy Government Motors cars instead of Prius and Leaf autos.
“The insurance coverage is offered “at no additional cost,” according to GM (GM, Fortune 500). and will be provided by MetLife Auto & Home.”
there you have it. MetLife. welcome to my poop list.
I wouldn’t own a GM prodect now or for the rest of my life time - at least 45 years to go (I hope) even if it was all free.
so if a person has to sue GM they will be able to sue the federal government and obama personally.
will GM claim sovereign immunity?
this just sounds illegal.
How many of those cruz and malibu’s where bought by government?
Communism is advanced cancer:
This 6-minute video is from a retired US Army Lt. General and Green Beret. He provides vital information that has come as a result of decades in military service.
Watch this bone chilling video and then forward to everyone you know.
Only someone with no principles would buy a GM car.
No kidding. So government motors offers “free” car insurance on a car they manufacture. Will they deny anyone based on their driving record? And if a sucker oops customer has to make a claim, who will pay the claim?
Will the customer have to sue obama motors when the insurance arm denies the claim?
Will obamamotors send the customer a crappy calender at Christmas time?
Let’s look at who they’re trying to attract. The average individual already has insurance that generally exceeds the state minimums, and isn’t going to cancel it just to take advantage of the offer so...
The US Government is giving speculators a chance to short GM stock a second time.
GM has until election day 2012 to get its act together. After that, GM stock will go down the toilet.
Your government sponsored cars stink.
Nobody wants them.
Free insurance is just like polishing a turd.
When you’re done, it’s still a turd.

Me too...I’ve bought two Durangos over the last few years. I’m done with Marx Motors...
-GM Auto Insurance Claims Best Practices-
Customer calling: Finally! I got a claim.
Claim Rep answering: GM aqui. Imprima al dos. Abren la puerta en Internet. GM es el Guapo! Le siento, pero...
Customer: Huh? My GM car was in an accident. Acci-den-tay.
Claim Rep: No feex. Es mandatorio que Ud. compran un nuevo GM! Abren el Internet. Nuevo autos. GM es el Guapo!
Customer: Hey. Ah, never mind. No puedo ganar! (Hangs up)
Claim Rep: GM aqui, por todo el futuro.
Yep, Met Life is now on my permanent boycott list. I am not a current customer, so I can’t cancel a policy, but I will never consider doing business with them again.
I have a sister in Oregon.
I ought to have her find me a small apartment to rent in her town; an apartment with a lease that permits a sublease.
Then I could briefly set-up a residence there and buy a new Chevy (not a Volt, sorry GM).
Then I could sublease the apartment, using my sister’s network of friends and church associates, with agreement from that tenant that I will continue to get mail there, which they will forward to me.
At least for one year I’d save about $3 thousand. In the following years just buying Oregon auto insurance instead of New Jersey auto insurance would probably save a mint as well.
Yep...already doing it.
Future Call to GM Insurance:
Yeah, ah, I been involved in an auto theft.
OK, Right, I need some info.
Right, what you need?
Vehicle, Vin number etc
2012 Cadillac, purple, Vin Number? I have the license plate #.
Can you further describe vehicle?
Yes, had the spinner rims.
What is the nature of your loss?
Ah, well, seems car disappeared from front of my house.
Did you pay your car payment on time?
Car payments, umm, well, let me think.
OK, while you are thinking, any idea where the car might be?
Yeah, it is two blocks over in a alley. Seems someone burned it up, I believe they used Chevron Gas.
Why Chevron Gas?
Because that is the only gas station close to here.
Ah, hold on while we call 911.
You calling the police on me?
You got a guilty consience?
Me, no Obama says he was going to buy my car, so here is his chance.
You are apparently wrong. The Chevrolet Cruze was the #1 selling passenger car in the US in June. The Chevrolet Malibu was the #2 selling passenger car in June. They both beat the Corolla, Civic, Accord, Camry and all others.
It wasn't my post, so I won't argue. Suggested correction:
"Note to GM. Your crap stinks even if some people want it. Polishing it just makes it a shiny turd.
I imagine everyone honest will be satisfied with that compromise (unless we have a GM-paid troll here pretending that the crap produced by that massively corrupt company is worth having). If we do have a paid GM troll, I don't expect that his posts will help the company. FR has critical thinkers who both do the research and have moral values. I doubt that many on FR would deal with GM any more willingly than they would buy an implausibly cheap computer that "fell off the back of a truck", even ignoring the fact that with GM the prices are about the same as from a reputable company.
GM delenda est.
GM is offering “free insurance”?!!!Heh heh.
YOU AND I ARE PAYING THE PREMIUMS OF THOSE DRIVERS!!!!!!!!!!
Mark my Cruze as bought by a FReeper.
I LOVE it.
Just what an Obamunist Company teetering on the brink should do.
ASBORB A TRILLION DOLLARS IN POTENTIAL LIABILITIES, to get a couple of billion in sales.
What the hell, it’s not THEIR money, eh?
Wow! Free insurance? That should make me forget that they share the same political vision as Adolph Hitler...not.
Anyone who buys a car from GM is a not a conservative.. Obama thanks you for your support.
I’ve got a lot of skin in the deal.
Worked there for 42 yrs.
With Soc Sec looking dubious, I gotta buy what pays the bills.
I am paying for this O’Buthead $hit. Stop this nonsense.

So you work for the Federal Government now???
If receiving Social Security means you work for the Fed Gov, then yes I do.
I never really thought of it that way though.
