What the eff is wrong with GM?


Recommended Posts

I saw a Yukon Hybrid out on a dealer lot today (sorry, no pics) but the damned thing had 8 hybrid badges. One on each front fender, on on each c-pillar, the big-ass graphic on the bottom of the doors (god I hate that, worse than the "IROC" on 3rd gen Camaros) then one on the tailgate and another on the back window. Jesus, Toyota may run a lot of "we're green" tv ads, but the f@#king Prius on has one hybrid badge.

The badges don't bother me, but the side decals are WAY overkill and almost seem aftermarket--like you weren't proud enough of the Hybrid and had to show more of it. At least they're dealer applied, not factory...now if the damn dealers would stop actually putting them on and ask the buyers. Kind of like front license plate brackets, which :banghead: me most of all.

Check out the 360 exterior view here, it has all the badges and stickers and whatnot. I'm just shocked they didn't put one on the hood or roof. Guess they do have one on the windshield, didn't notice that at the dealer.

Decal wise, they apparently show up with those not yet applied (i.e. just thrown inside like floor mats) and it's up to the dealer to put them on. OR, so I had read. Knowing dealers, of course, if it's there (plate bracket, sticker, etc.) the prep guys put it on no matter what.

Whatever... if GM just made a hardtop they can put three freekin' corny emblems on each panel,

these days emblems do not leave holes like back in the 50s/60s/70s so I can always just peel

them off & toss them. Now as far as cheesy oversized stickers those are more hassle but a good

heat gun and a few minutes with a credit card will take care of those.

I was really hoping that god awful door script was for show cars only...


Same here.

And, who was the "bean counter" that approved all of these emblems? Do all those emblems not add extra cost to the vehicle? Geez....the "extra cost" excuse is what Ch#$r%*et used in axing the emblems on the 2006-2007 Celebrity/Lumina/monte carlo, as well as the reduced # of emblems on the previous years of that same generation. And, now, emblems are being ADDED in BULK???

  • The Jeep Gladitator gets a gentle refresh for 2024

    Jeep is understandably reluctant to mess with success, and the Jeep Gladiator has been one of the brand's greatest success stories in the last decade.  So when it came time to give the Gladiator a nip-tuck, Jeep went in with the gentlest of hands. The biggest visual update is a refresh of Jeep's iconic 7-slot grille, windshield-integrated trail-ready stealth antenna, and seven all-new wheel designs. Inside is a redefined interior with more technology and amenities, including available 12-wa


    GMC Upsizes the Acadia for 2024; New 2.5L Turbo-4

    GMC caused a stir in 2016 when it downsized the Acadia in 2017 from its previous near-Yukon length. That downsize brought the Acadia down to be inline in size with the contemporary Jeep Grand Cherokee.  In the years since, the Grand Cherokee has grown and GMC is matching that with the 2024 GMC Acadia. Inches matter in this class and in that the Acadia gains (back) 10.6 inches in length and 3.2 inches in height. That equates to 80% more space behind the third row and 36% more space behind th


    Cadillac Refreshes the CT5 with an Updated Look for 2025

    Today at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Cadillac unveiled the refreshed Cadillac CT5 sedan.  CT5 retail sales have been on an upswing of late, increasing over 35%.  In a time when sedan sales are stagnating or disappearing entirely, Cadillac's positive numbers have given hope that the luxury sedan market isn't quite dead yet. The refresh of the CT5 begins with the exterior. A new larger, bolder grille is flanked by new vertically stacked headlamps and Cadillac's sign
