BIG THREE BANKRUPTCY


Recommended Posts

Toyota may be the next target but I don't see they have much to attack financially. There's no legacy costs hanging around their necks dragging them down.

hyundai. they will think hyundai is the next big thing, a better version of toyota. less cost and more warranty. toyota is the next target for the media jackals.

The Transplants will be hurt by bankrupt suppliers. Also, Honda cannot just take over all truck production. All you snob who think trucks are 'useless', try using that Accord pickup [ie Ridgeline] to haul bricks.

Hyundai is moving metel with huge rebates, [sound familiar?] and their warranty is overrated. Powertrain, not bumper to bumper for 100k miles.

Also, Hyundai is supported by South Korea government, and their workers will strike [as before] if Hyundai tries to push them to make more products.

Hard to tell... GM and Ford collpasing would spread the disease to suppliers (who in many cases also supply their main competitors)... not to mention other economic impacts and how thaat would impact the car market as a whole... it's very hard to picture what would come out of a GM and Ford collapse but it wouldn't be pretty for the whole industry...

suzuki and mitsubishi i believe have the two best warranties in the industry. However, Hyundai and Kia were the first to press with the 100k tagline, which still sticks with them today.

Toyota will gain the most, they'll by far be the #1 automaker, and they can source parts from around the world, and drive down supplier costs like Wal-Mart does. Toyota could rise to 35% market share if GM and Ford collapse, and they have the cash to buy any factories or assets of other companies.
