what a history this company has, GM cheated defrauded honest GM stock & bond holders when they declared bankruptcy, enriched union morons at the expense of honest people who believed and invested in GM now they admit they killed drivers because they did not admit they made a defecting product.

Don't know how anyone could buy or trust a GM product again.
I would never buy or drive a GM anything again.

I'm not giving up my Sierra on principle. It works too hard for me. Bouncing around bad roads has not shaken the ignition off yet. Course I don't carry a pound of keys on my chain either.

If anything,this was an alert notice for general motors.it will certainly let them know they r accountable fir coverups etc. Also their product line will definitely keep up quality issues after this exposure for something that should have been taken care of instead of ignored over a decade ago .this was an easy fix and instead flaw was allowed to exist.gm will definitely keep strng sales.their products r exciting with great appeal.

I doubt GM has learned any lessons in quality control. I worked for GM long ago and they hid product defects back then and refused to fix warranted repairs. They eventually did make some policy adjustments, but long after customer loyalty was used up. I believe they will tighten up on safety related items for a time and the rest of the vehicle quality will suffer to make the money come out right.

I also believe this Ms Barra is lying through her smile all along in this. She could not have gotten to this level without being a graduate of liar's school.

Not really. I've only owned GM except for one Ford extra car decades ago.

not bitter just astonished at how dumb the management at GM and how badly the company has been.

Keep in mind in the 80's GM mis managing morons could look out the corp offices windows onto the interstate system which passes the GM offices and see larger numbers and growing numbers of smaller more fuel efficient imports traveling on American highways in front of the GM offices mean while ignoring the sales reports they could read of GM and the other motor city genius they kept on building large rusting gas guzzlers ignoring marketing and sales trends .

and the GM morons lost market share right under their collective noses can you imagine that?

then in in more recent history the bankruptcy which was brought on by mismanagement of the GM Brain trust, they along with obozo defrauded honest GM stock and bond holders who had invested in GM.

taking that wealth away from honest hard working investors and giving it to greedy over paid union morons.

GM has earned bankruptcy the way Detroit did by MISMANAGEMENT

At least cars r still assembled here in usa,,Toyota, honda,chrysler,gm,volkswagen,f ord,etc. Look at watches,televisions, clothing,shoes, and so on, yes usa car companies made drastically bad decisions. But not irreparable. Usa has to hold onto what factory jobs r left. R workforce is capable of competing worldwide. Bought stanley manual sawr today made in usa of global parts. We can still compete if we try hard.we can't throw in the towel yet.this new eco 4 cylinder gm makes in Tennessee can compete with many engines. Great power,torque, mpg,etc.

after GM was bailed out by the tax payers they opened a new plant in mexico ? something wrong with that picture.

on a positive note there is more non union MFG jobs opening in America.
Honda is building a new plane in NC using American made and designed Williams jet engines designed in MI and built in Utah.

Tesla the electric car people have purchased the old empty abandoned GM assembly plant in New castle DE and will begin building the tesla electric car there. which will reduce the cost of the car due to " economy of scale" and less transportation cost for east coast buyers.

we should tax GM products made in mexico and brought into America to avoid american labor cost.

we should operate the other countries do. if you want to sell a american product there they require that a percentage of that product be built in the country creating jobs for those countries.
