The anti American folks need to recognize that GM just stripped two more market share points from the competition. This can’t be real, I read an article saying GM was stupid. It looks like the analysts are going crazy. That damn gubment motors just outperformed everyone. I see the Camaro ousted the Mustang again, no not ousted, that’s just a pure spank. CTS is up massive, and Regal is through the roof. Volt outsold the Lexsux HS.

The most effective troll spray remains to be results.

Good for GM!
I'm pleased to see them doing so well.
Funny thing though--GM is No.1 in sales with a 49 percent jump in market----but No.2 is Toyota with a 42 percent jump in market!
Go figure!

This time last year Toyota’s cars were not for sale due to the recall defects. This is why we see a YOY increase in Toyotas sales.

With regard to market, GM actually captured 2 more points of the market.

Here's some interesting news for you:

"TOKYO - Standard & Poor's cut Toyota's credit rating on Friday to AA- because profitability at Japan's top automaker is not recovering as quickly as at its rivals.

Toyota Motor Corp. has been plagued by defects in a range of models and has recalled more than 14 million vehicles globally since late 2009. Continuing recalls are making Toyota's road to complete recovery a challenge.

In announcing its decision, S&P said it reflected the view that Toyota's profitability in the next one to two years is unlikely to recover to the level appropriate for its earlier AA rating.

S&P also cited the tough business environment, including higher prices for raw materials and gasoline.

The decision lowers Toyota's long-term corporate credit rating one notch to the fourth-highest rank of AA-.

Interesting information to say the least.

The similarities between old GM and present day Toyota are eerily brow rising.
