After Summer Shutdown, Ohio GM Plant Reopens

4 posts in this topic

Thanks to hot sales of the subcompact Chevrolet Cobalt, 2,200 people are back to work at General Motors' Lordstown Assembly Plant in northeast Ohio. GM announced this week that they will be joined by nearly 1,100 more this fall.

But it's the Cobalt's upscale replacement — the Chevy Cruze, due out next spring — that is seen by many as the real hope for GM to claw its way back to profitability.

The new car will be built on a new line while the Cobalt is still built on the line next to the Cruze.

I wonder how bad sales will drop when the Clunker rebate expires. I expect a drop like they do when the rebates stopped. Programs like this alway have a quick drop off.

Hopefully the Cruze will keep sales up.

But methinks we are still in for a rough ride, even with all of the talks of a "recovery"
