  1. Hey, its been many moons since I was active on this forum... But I'm stationed here in germany.. I was liking the new cruze, and was curious if the US version is the same as the Euro Chevrolet version of the Cruze... Anyone know what might have changed, are they made in multiple locations, etc?
  2. thank you all, for the welcoming back, I now depart back to the states, long 20 hour flight ugg wish me luck
  3. certainly havent looked very hard at the dodge products, really didnt like the charger platform when they were on our used lot, didnt like the suspension or steering. Maybe it would be worth while to try one out, but i have always leaned toward GM. I was thinking about the CTS-v on the last gen, but I think i've been over here while the specs of the new one came out. dont really know what its all about. 1.)if someone would kindly catch me up, Pontiac sports truck is done? what about the GMC sports truck? 2.)Traverse is currently out? and is it selling well? 3.)Camaro this is its first month? so we'll see, how is expectations, did GM say what its annual sales should be? 4.)Malibu looks like its kicking butt, same with the G8 bucking the trend, hopefully by a lot. 5.)Is the CTS still selling well or kinda died off? did we ever get a wagon CTS? 6.)Enclave is doing well? 7.)Whens the new Lacross due? 8.)if hummer sticks around is the H4 near production? 9.)Chevy volt still looking for production at $35k? is lutz going to work until it sees production or he will retire early? 10.)New Impala coming? 11.)how are advertising programs going? effective? 12.)is saab still part of GM? 13.)did GM sell portion of opel? i cant think of anything else, but if you can think of any big things that happened in the last year, trying to catch up
  4. lol, the requirements were +400 horsepower, and a manual transmission. not too many cars that fit that bill... but I cant decide between practicality and style. seeing that Im getting a divorce no kids, doesnt really matter what its used for, but pleasure is a must.
  5. Wow its been so long since I've been on these boards. Getting ready to end my deployment and come home. It seems GM has changed quite a bit, has quite a few problems at its feet, but I think it will recover. Thinking of getting a new car when I get home. undecided between a G8 GXP Camaro SS or Corvette
  6. its probably about time... he's a bean counter, hopefully we'll get someone else up there who has more operational and manufacturing experience.
  7. regardless they have to import parts...
  8. i think its a step in the right direction he's had the oppertunity to change things, and if it hasnt been done then it wont be... keep lutz around and put someone else in charge...
  9. I really doubt GM's situation is as disastrous as GM makes it seem, while it is unthinkable to have such a slow year, GM wouldnt continue to offer support to delphi if they couldn't run themselves. if there is money to spread, i'm sure i'd get in line and act the part of an ailing business. I believe that Obama will do wonders for the industry, and america... protectionism is in his word and his nature. Having congress on your side when it comes to union contracts, seems to be quite an advantage. I would hope that GM doesnt end up shelling out billions for health care to form a veba, and obama makes things free or much cheaper for insurance.
  10. i like what wagoner is trying to do, but undermining the companies previous plan to keep all 8 brands alive will be a waste of money in the long run... it is best to keep all alive, and in the upcoming years, GM should strive, as long as the sales begin to pick up, the camaro will do wonders for GM as soon as it hits the showroom, chevy will be selling again, almost like the old days... i think the camaro is GM's silver bullet right now, and i hope it can do for gm what the camaro did for gm in the 60's
  11. the board of directors and the management needs to be renewed, and replaced. wagooner has cut the fat on the company, but there still remains some expenses that could be removed, that he wont do. wagooner has removed so many subsiderarys of GM... and i dont think that is good... companies like delphi should still be with gm... but whatever. if thats how a company makes its money by selling the accumulation of wealth then i cannot see this company being dominate any longer.
  12. the volt and prius will always have their callings... but at some point it is not cost effective.... if you intend on having a car to drive to the liquor store and back a few times a week... then it is a great idea... but for the average buying public... the price of gas is too shaky... if people's confidence was restored, gm would be selling the GMT900's again...
  13. im not certain if u are considering wamu to be corrupt like enron, but if you are, you are stepping on some mighty big toes... the treasury is corrupt and might have taken lessons from enron on how to sell power/debt to other companies... but at some point... it stops and someone falls big... im thinking its going to be citibank... fdic tried to keep them afloat by giving them wachovia, but as u can see that failed to go through, and citi is stumbling, very badly.
  14. perhaps not... the big guys sure fall the most, from globalization... but it helps the little guy in america, if the little guys in china go out of business... china had a hand in this, a little bit, they raised their minimum wage and put themselves out of work, for cheaper smaller 3rd world countries... now their factories are empty, and the asian bubble has popped. we'll see how this affects japan, as the majority of all their sales are outside their country. the US is relitively self sufficient we have every sector in our ecconomy, and much of the world depends on us for agriculture. so that market wont dry up... but japanese exporters will dry up, and leave the streets of japan without income... making the money crisis in japan even worse. i believe that the world ecconomy will continue to fall for the next 2-3 years... and at some point obama is going to be the last man standing with a plan, and everyone will look to him for the future of the world. the snow ball is just starting to get rolling... look 80 years ago, on black friday the market lost a huge percent... this september had the worst week in the Dow's history. and if u look at the great depression you'll see that the stock market continued to fall for the next few years, it didnt really hit bottom till 32-33 ish, that was 4 years after the crash in 1929. it took till 1937-1939 before wall street had fully restored to its previous highs, and the bubble continued to grow until 1950 when the market took a huge dive again.
  15. management... lets try free trade... i guess your right management does need to go.. bush out!
