  1. Apparently, several of the rank and file hate the new contract. There may be trouble ahead. https://www.thedetroitbureau.com/2019/10/proposed-gm-uaw-contract-faces-current-of-criticism/
  2. Selling Opel was the right thing to do, especially given the situation in the European market these days. In terms of the CAR itself, sure it would be better if there were decladded cars to sell since cladding usually looks bad on almost any car. As for GM overpricing, spot on. There needs to be a serious rethinking on GM's part when it comes to options. What GM should do is make the top of the line standard and make a couple option packages on each vehicle (that's it!).
  3. Hummer as an EV brand is a nice rebrand for a brand that trolled and angered environmentalists for almost 15 years. Will GM be smart enough to make Electra the car/CUV EV brand?!
  4. A few words about the deal: https://www.thedetroitbureau.com/2019/10/gm-uaw-reach-tentative-agreement-on-new-contract/ https://www.thedetroitbureau.com/2019/10/uaw-workers-get-11000-signing-bonus-in-tentative-gm-contract/
  5. Let me guess: GM surrendered and the UAW snatched more than they deserved.
  6. 50 years? I can accept 30 years or so, but sedans were easier to differentiate in the 70s than the 80s and easier in the 80s than the 90s and so on and so on.
  7. Coupe Crossovers are still a bad idea. Now VW has joined this execrable trend. SMH.
  8. DSGs used to be fairly common in Audis and other VW cars a few years back. I wonder if VW Group still uses DSGs rather than CVTs.
  9. Maybe CVTs are cheaper to build and maintain than a 8-speed or 10-speed traditional automatic. That does NOT mean the CVT is a good idea.
  10. I am not sure that India's drivers can afford an Equinox, let alone any EV these days.
  11. Nice to see that all GM brands are up for the last quarter. Best news from GM I have heard since the UAW called a strike against GM.
  12. It would be a lot easier and better if customers would order the Corvette of their choice and have it delivered to their nearest Chevy dealer.
