General Motors Has Just Three Sedans Left In The U.S. Market220
We’ve heard it a million times before – crossovers and SUVs are taking over. Scratch that – they’ve already dominated the U.S. auto market, pushing the sedan body style to the margins in terms of sales and options. Nowhere is that more apparent than in the General Motors vehicle lineup, which currently includes just three sedan models.
For the moment, the only 2021 model-year General Motors sedan models on offer include the Cadillac CT4, the Cadillac CT5, and the Chevy Malibu. However, the list of GM sedans that recently got the axe is long and varied. The Chevy Sonic is one of the latest to fall by the wayside, as is the Buick Regal, although it should be said that the Regal was more of a hatchback/fastback than a sedan. Regardless, we can also point to the recently deceased Buick LaCrosse, Chevrolet Cruze, Chevrolet Impala, and Cadillac CT6 as examples of GM’s dwindling sedan lineup.
GM’s crosstown rival, Ford Motor Company, currently has no sedans on offer.
That said, while General Motors and Ford cut from their respective sedan crops, there are a few automakers out there that still offer a relatively robust sedan lineup in the United States. For example, Volkswagen Auto Group offers six sedan models, including the VW Jetta, VW Passat, Audi A3, Audi A4, Audi A6, and Audi A8. Hyundai/Kia/Genesis offers 11 sedan models, including the Hyundai Accent, Hyundai Elantra, Hyundai Sonata, Kia Rio, Kia Forte, Kia K5, Kia Cadenza, Kia K900, Genesis G70, Genesis G80, and Genesis G90.
The point is this – while General Motors is busy slashing its sedan lineup, some automakers are sticking to it.
Part of the reason GM is cutting its sedan lineup is in response to underperforming results for many of the nameplates mentioned above. As General Motors continues to pour money into longterm investments like all-electric vehicles and autonomous vehicle technology, models like the Chevrolet Impala head to the chopping block.

FORD and GM will be SORRY , Cadillac really needs to go back to names big time. It’s a SAD day in America
It is going back to names.
GM, ya’ll should keep the Malibu & the Impala. I send one of the big guy’s an email about the Camaro.
GM and Ford will be sorry. I think they have miscalculated the demand for the automobile!! Some people are GM or Ford h customers but like example the Impala. Now you have taken that away. I hear much disappointment with the move GM and Ford have made. I have a 2009 Impala with 99,300 miles. I guess I’ll be keeping it. I wanted again an Impala!!!
I think they are going back to names. Haven’t you heard about Horrifiq and Moroniq?
Oh, you forgot about the LuckyAllElectricAutonomousCrapiq.
GM should keep the Malibu and Impala. They should offer a taxi/limo, station wagon and pursuit variation on the longer platform.
Why would the police want to go back to cruising in luxury liners like the crown vic when they get more power in the Ford Explorer… Plus you can chase crooks thru the ditches and the backwoods too. The last Impalas and Taurus’… even the Dodge Chargers wouldn’t be able to hop a curb without leaving it’s bumpers and exhaust behind. The engineered the luxury, functionality and affordability right out of their sedans. Dumb Dumb Dumb
With your latest comments that you have posted,,,,,it just shows that you,,,,,,,,,,,,can’t teach stupid………….
I was looking to purchase a new Malibu Premier and the dealer,at least in my area,doesn’t seem to be interested at all. They’re forcing me to look at Toyota,Honda,etc. I love my older model but no place to turn!
That cutesie-pie naming with the “q”-as-final-letter naming will go no further than the alphabet soup they are leaving behind. The names, in the end, mean nothing. Sedan de Ville, Eldorado, Sixty Special, those are real words or names.
I think GM need to bring back the American muscle back in Sedans and stop competing in these front wheel drive v6 crap that Japanese and European auto makers put on are streets Chrysler is doing it right now and has no problem selling their chargers we need to start marking the cars that made us back in the day We are losing it here
Just for the record I have a Chrysler 300 with a hemi I know it’s not GM but it’s because GM dosent have a Sedan with muscle
I wish GM would revive the SS sedan. I own a Pontiac G8 GT and I am really pleased with the performance and comfort on the road. If Chevrolet could build the car as solidly as the Australian Holden Division and offer the three different trim levels I’m sure it would be a big hit. It would help to advertise the car also.
I agree. I am now driving my 2nd LaCrosse, a 2019 and would most certainly but another one. One of the best cars I’ve owned and I’ve been down the Audi- BMW route.
No puede faltar el pilar de GMC Buick debe de seguir en el ruedo , es el único que regalo tegnologia al mundo entero , y los Norte Americanos poco lo han entendido ,y creo firmemente que tiene que seguir fabricando sedanes , propios , creados por Buick con lo mejor de la tecnología , como lo hizo en toda su historia y que hoy muchas marcas mundiales se han sacado cartel como primeros , en China se vende espectacularmente , quisiera que también en su propia tierra ocurriese lo mismo .
I’m on my third Buick. 2 LeSabres, 1 LaCrosse. I was going to buy another LaCrosse, but I heard that they were being made in China, and I won’t buy one. A couple of years ago, GM made $6 billion, and so they decided to shut down 6 assembly plants in N. America. I’m having a tough time convincing myself to buy another GM product. I guess I’ll be looking for a foreign sedan. I hate SUVS’s and won’t buy one. I consider this period of time the downfall of automotive design.
Where do you get this crap from ??? Do your research, find out where vehicles are produced. This is the year 2021, why are you dealing with hearsay ???
Cadillac has got bigger problems than name. Anyway if you’re going to pick some symbols or acronyms instead of some glossy highbrow name, Cadillac could do a much better job. When it comes to product naming, Lincoln is on the right track.
Lincoln has a format as well. Navigator, Aviator, Corsair… all nautical. Chevrolet had resort cities: Bel Air, Biscayne, Del Ray. Ford’s wagons had rural references like Ranch Wagon, Country Sedan, Country Squire. Plymouth had “hotel” cars: Belevedere, Savoy, Plaza, Cranbrook. Chrysler: cities. New York(er), Saratoga, Windsor. Even little Studebaker had a clever name for a pre-war model. They called it the Dictator. The name designated how that model “dictated” what should be standard equipment even on a down-market model.
All of this from the days when there was some imagination.
Yes. I have Chevy impala and a buick gs love them both. Don’t want a station wagon. Don’t know what I will do next.
Bring back the Impala , please . Love that model !
So does GM plan to do EV sedans, besides the Cadillac ones? It would be a good time to reintroduce some of the names/lines that once made them the biggest and arguably the best vehicle manufacturer in the world. There is still an audience for sedans, and coupes for that matter. Make them right, what the people want, at a price that is acceptable to the average customer, and GM can be on top again. Oh, huh, what? Just dozed off there for a minute. What was I talking about? Right, right, GM’s inability to produce EV’s in a timely manner, and in a format that is popular, and at a price we can afford. Same old stuff!
Do I wish GM would bring back some of its sedans? I really don’t care anymore. GM was once a great company that I loved. They aren’t anymore. Pontiac is dead. Oldsmobile is dead. Saturn is dead. Hummer is dead. Buick is essentially extinct in America too with only one US built product remaining and only three total models. Cadillac has the most uninspired lineup in their history and nothing promising on the horizon. They’re headed for extinction I think. So, do I wish for GM sedans? It seems a such a trivial question with so much else wrong.
GM is one fuel shortage away from dire straights again. The strength of Toyota is that no matter what happens, they’ve got good products to fit the times. In times of plenty or times of hardship they’re ready. Big trucks? They have it. A hybrid? They have it. A luxury sedan? It’s in the lineup. A fuel sipping car? Toyota has one. They even sell a fuel cell car. GM basically makes all their money off of one platform and six nameplates: Silverado, Sierra, Tahoe, Suburban, Yukon, Escalade. The company is highly vulnerable to a fuel crisis since all their money is made off of guzzlers. They’re actually in much worse shape than the 1970s. They are the poster child for shortsighted poor management. So, again, sedans? Yes, I wish they still sold them but that’s kind of the least of GM’s problems.
Do know that GM has ran the numbers on what is seen as max profitability and with all the tax-credits and subsidies from state and federal entities, they’re reliably going for short to mid term gain over long term viability. Typical of GM is to come out with a well engineered vehicle but allow it to die a slow death by not keeping it relevant; witness the Malibu. Anyone remember the Olds Intrigue? It was an outlier that garnered positive feedback but typical GM pulled the plug after one model run.
Truth be told, we are the ones with the disconnect. As car fans, we are looking for vehicles that excite and inspire. GM could care less about that. They’re chasing the money and unlike other auto companies, GM doesn’t stand for anything of notoriety except for making generic (read; General) vehicles.
Ci2Eye and Gary,
You guys get it!!!
Excellent analysis and commentary. Don’t forget the fact that the GM is shutting US factories and importing almost everything from other places… a path to hollowing out the industry, our country, and the once greatest car company in the world.
Olds Intrigue? That’s your example. It’s another product of badge engineering. There wasn’t anything super special about that car.
Yes, any and all know it was a badge engineered vehicle – this is GM we are referring to. But it was executed well.
I didn’t indicate ‘super special’ or the like but that is in the overall a well engineered vehicle that garnered more positive reviews than expected.
Nearing the end of a lease on our GMC Terrain.
Have loved the power and fuel economy of this SUV.
Started some preliminary scouting work at local Chevrolet, and GMC / Buick dealerships. WAS thinking of trading up to a Buick model, but noticed that several of their offerings were made in China.
THAT WILL NEVER HAPPEN!!!!!
I want to buy an American vehicle, made in an American (USA) plant, which employs: black, Hispanic, white, male & female UAW represented workers.
Aren’t a lot of foreign/import cars built here already?
Yes, and quite a few have more domestic content in them than ones with American badges on them.
One often hears about “Yeah but the profits all go back to Japan/Germany/Korea!” Yes, they do. But, two things: Joe and Mary in the USA get the pay checks that buys their houses and cars and everything else. Ford pays José and Maria in Mexico; GM pays Pierre and Marie in Canada. The second point is: buying stock in Subaru, Nissan-Renault, Daimler, Toyota, or Stellantis is one phone call to a stock broker away.
Buy a hyundai, I bought a one made in alabama drive down I-85 in montgomery 10,000’s of people work at the main plant and supplier plants. Avg line worker making 21.50 a hour (a good wage in Alabama) Its crazy how hyundai believes in one U.S plant, it’s the black belt regions biggest employer. Maybe not Union but if you see how those jobs lifted thousands of people out of poverty. Helps that I’m from the south. I wanted to by american this year but the fusion was made in Mexico. I wanted a sedan not a CUV. Call me old fashion. But I take pride in the fact that white, black, hispanic american workers are making a living in America.
Same here but I was out priced for a new vehicle. So I had to buy an car from a non unionized factory of a foreign brand. If I can afford a Cadillac later then I will come back and by an xt4 or a CT5.
Same reason I avoid the Japanese and Korean brands. Most of the parts come from China.
If you’re upgrading from a Terrain, then you’re looking at the Enclave only. Which isn’t made in China.
Envision isn’t even an upgrade, it’s a lateral move at best
Correction. One made in China, 2 made in South Korea, one made in Tennessee.
And this is why I will not get GM again…unless the EVs are sedans or wagons……
Then why are you wasting your time on a sight named GMauthority?
While it doesn’t have the name outside of enthusiasts I’d love to see the SS come back on the Alpha platform with an AWD for weather only as an option.
A ct8 would be wonderful. Although I wouldn’t call it a ct8 let’s name it the El Dorado…
Anyone recall that the general understanding was that the vehicle that came to market as the CT6 was originally slated to be badged LTS?
Too much damage had been done to the previous nameplates (El Dorado, Sedan De Ville,…) with sub-par FWD vehicles that it would work against Cadillac to revive them. I was actually on board with the 3 letter nomenclature as the CTS had started to gain notoriety in the market place with three generations.
Had Cadillac stayed the course with sedans, we’d have the following:
Being that we are talking about Cadillac, let’s talk about its upcoming higher performance sedan offering: When the CT5-V BW finally hits the market, it’ll be so embarrassing for it to get whupped in performance by the less powerful M3 that will have AWD.
Technically I see the CT5-V BW as an M5 competitor. The M5 comes with AWD. Having recently watched a video of a stock 600-ish HP M5 with AWD continually walk away off the line from an 800 HP Dodge Demon, I’m wondering whether the less powerful AWD M3 may do the same to the CT5-V BW. We’ll see.
Who says it will get whupped?
General Motors has the pieces necessary to re-enter the sedan business as they could build a super-sedan using the basic architecture of the Chevrolet Camaro or even the GMT K2 platform (like the Presidential Cadillac sedan).
I have no faith in the leadership of GM. GM will be gone in ten years. The clowns running GM will be shrugging there shoulders wondering how it happened. You happened GM miss management, your what happened!
The buzz is that GM will likely transition to a software services company with revenues essentially derived from subscriptions and AV’s. It’s fairly obvious that they’ve been heading in that direction for years with Olds, Pontiac, Opel, Holden all gone, to name a few. Sad that it has abandoned it’s rich legacy and its loyal customers along the way.
Don’t matter what you say to me, GM will be dead as soon as rises a new petrol crisis. I love GM, I loved GM my whole life. But it’s on the way to hell. Nothing works. Silverado, Camaro, Malibu… the only exceptions seems to be Tahoe/Suburban.
Gm won’t be dead, they will just considate down to Nikola and Lordstown, who they will eventually fully purchase. Buick will become avneir or some crap of the sort. I think as soon as they find a naming scheme for China Buick will fade out completely. If Cadillac sedans die, Cadillac might as well die because GM has GMC to do expensive SUVS.
Say what you will, but they have no issue selling luxury SUVs among their brands. Those SUVs are still cash cows and support continued sedan offers.
GM will be balls deep in electric vehicles before the oil boom due to fracking ends.
Exactly, they are producing the big gas guzzling trucks that are larger profit margin items for them until gas prices spike. Personally I can stand SUV’s and Crossovers and I have no need for a 60k pickup truck
The cold harsh reality is if there was money in sedans they and others would be building more of them not less.
These is little to no growth and little profits in sedans unless they are sold globally.
If this changes GM could easily put a sedan on a number of the SUZ and CUV platforms they offer as they are more car based vs truck based.
As for name they matter little. A good vehicle will sell no matter the name number or letter it is called.
I too with the many things of the past mattered today but in this market they don’t. I understand that and have learned to deal with it. Others need to do the same.
Because GM stopped trying to sell sedans that made no money and were declining in sales they will be here ten years and beyond.
Yet Genesis is fleshing out its sedan lineup, Mazda’s -yes Mazda, the small niche player – next 6 will go RWD, the next S and C Class from MB are on their way and so on and so on…. What do these companies see that GM doesn’t?
Yet they all are global models and even some like Mazda still may not make money on them.
GM understands it takes selling a vehicle everywhere to have a chance, Even then the more expensive it is the more difficult to sell a new model in a competitive market. Cadillac will never out sell the Germans in Europe and many other places.
I think the biggest thing that those companies see, that GM doesn’t is they are not being assembled by a bunch of overpaid juveniles who are only there working to get their next beer tab paid for. Mercedes, Audi, BMW, Mazda all of them are non union, and if there is a union, the workers in it, actually give a crap on what they are building. UAW in the US does not. Again, just a bunch of spoiled overpaid brats that don’t care if it’s at the right torque setting, or snapped in until seated correctly. Thus the car goes out to the public built in a half assed manner, yet at an expensive car price, and falls apart within the first 30 thousand miles.
The Honda Civic and Accord and Toyota Corolla and Camry seem to sell in adequate volume. I myself just bought a Honda Insight sedan, a 50 MPG hybrid in a Civic chassis with Accord (grown-up) styling.
And sales been dropping like an anvil. Only reputation and CRV support keeps the Civic alive, you see the Civic coupe is gone.
Corolla is on the chopping block too.
Robert the sales of all these cars are in decline but they just have farther to fall than most.
They all are globally sold and that matters.
Yet all these companies are bringing mor CUV models to cover the lost sedan sales.
The devil is in the details Robert.
Cars like the Impala and Cruze sold well here but no where else. GM had no real option in Europe, down under and many other markets where they were and still not making a buck.
Volume with few if any profits matter little. Today you focus on the models and markets that make money and invest in the future with EV products many of these other companies just can’t afford to due with the lack of income.
Honda may be selling sedans but still had to turn to GM for EV tech.
Many companies are running like the Dallas Cowboys play. They may rack up 500 yards of offense per game but with no defense they are 1-3.
To your globally sold comments.
Sure I agree that, lets take the Mercedes, is – are sold globally. It is, it is sold globally. Yet it outsells Cadillac in the USA in sedan form. Sure the Escalade is the only Cadillac model GM cares about, and it is clearly obvious. It is because it is at the core a GM truck.
GM, for some unknown reason, will not simply take that same formula down a size, why ?
Make one other platform, the same as the full-size truck platform, RWD/AWD, and put a mid-size truck, mid-sized SUV, and a mid-sized sedan on that one other platform. GM does it for the bizillllllion SAME midsized BLAH SUV lineup, but its FWD. I do still believe GM needs that BLAH FWD platform for the masses of grocery getters, yet there is a whole slot of wealthy midsized drivers who simply DO NOT drive the TANK trucks ! Remember, I LOVE THE TRUCKS !!!!! However MOST of that demographic I speak of are split into the Jeep – RWD/AWD and I will throw in Darango, the Mercedes, the Audi, the BMW, and others .
So I think what you are trying to say is, by selling globally, it allows those others a larger scale to spread investment. Yet they outsell the Cadillac brand HERE in the USA.
What I am really trying to say is, THEY MAKE A BETTER PRODUCT !!! Or if not better, a MORE WANTED PRODUCT !!!
And they sure as h3ll take care of that luxury demographic customer better than the HORRIBLE CUSTOMER SUPPORT at GM !!!!!!
I do AGREE that GM quit selling sedans because GM was making less money, I DO NOT agree that the sedan market is going away !!! A lot of the sedans GM killed still sold better than the Chevy Corvette ! GM just can not seem to build a sedan platform that will last reliably on the road, in RELATION to the competition !! I added that last half for all of the GM kool-aid drinkers here.
Sure GM makes and made sedans, better than the previous generations of GM sedans ( for the most part ). However GM STILL does NOT make ANY sedan that is comparable to the leaders !!!
And when I say comparable I mean total sedan ownership reliability and customer support !! GM is NOT THERE !!!! Even if GM kool-aid drinkers believe their products are there, the TOTAL OWNERSHIP, is NO WHERE CLOSE !!!
The numbers here DO NOT LIE !!!
The hundreds of thousands of foreign sedan owners are NOT ALL STUPID HUMANS !!!!!
The competition here IS REAL, and the owners of the foreign sedans know how to do it and will continue to do so !!
Its like you said on GM selling the drivetrain to the competition for EV’s ! That would be great if GM was doing any of that. But still TODAY its all GM kool-aid ! The GM battery is a LG Chem battery, and GM is the packager . This is WHY it is a JOINT VENTURE by LG Chem and GM, and not a GM battery plant !
And the others are there. Tesla is there. The VW group is there. Sure the smaller NON companies like Nikola need GM, or should I say LG Chem. But the likes of Tesla and VW group DO NOT ! Others out there DO NOT either !
So back to the product GM is selling. If GM cant make ANY product profitable, other than the two they must do know ( the truck platform and the mid-sized blah platform ) what will change this STATUS QUO ???? Just because GM is TRYING to make EV batteries ( with LG Chem ) for a new day vehicle ( sedan and others ) why and how is this different than TODAY ??
Do you GM kool-aid drinkers truly believe GM will be better at it than the SAME people GM can not be better than NOW ??
If so WHY do you think this ?
If these new ONSLAUGHT of Cadillacs, and the rest of the GM product line ( other than the full-sized truck/SUV, and GM almost let that one slip also with the cheap interior/dash ) were not seen as the CHEAPEST vehicle GM could produce, rather than the BEST, GM would not be killing everything !
And to top that off, because GM has let so, so, so many vehicles slip into total cheapness, GM now has to prove they can be better !! Cadillac can no longer enter the market with a product that GM says is equal to the competition. Who believes it any longer ? GM has to enter the market with better, do I dare say, like KIA. EVERY foreign competitor has entered the US market with a better cheaper vehicle with a longer better warranty and better customer support, just to GAIN sales ! GM, do to the total cheapness seen by the customer, is now the entry into the market brand.
my reply to you lifelong is you are not a GM owner rather likely a hate America antifa card carrying member, li would think most import buyers compare themselves to lets say government workers, that is slugs, and think all American workers are like themselves not hard working patriots like autoworkers
I have never owned a foreign vehicle, only GM for me.
Life long Republican switched to independent from South Dakota no less, so, SO, WAY NOT, for sure a antifa or any other crazy, wack job, group on either side !
Right in the center right of America !
By dropping the ct6 they are admitting they can not compete with Mercedes, BMW, Audi and Lexus
Note each name you state is a global brand. Cadillac really is a American/China market only.
To make them a global brand competing head to head with these other brands is very difficult as things are.
But take the lead in EV product’s especially in the many markets that are forcing people into the EV models like Europe, China and California they could just turn the tables on the others.
The risk is low as being a discounted luxury brand really is not going to get them anywhere as we have seen them try and try.
Today automakers are not reliant on doing all things ok. Today MFGs need to focus on what they do best. Development cost are so high just being ok is how you go broke.
General Motors has squandered a lifetime without developing a competitive product. Included were ownership of a European brand and numerous expensive attempts by Buick and Cadillac to copy the successful luxury brands. What a waste of resources.
Neither Ford or US FCA either….
As some else said GM been making money while simultaneously dropping sedans over the past 5 years. Buyers are constantly buying CUVs as midsized sedan replacements and pickup/SUVs as big car replacements, Toyota’s Rav-4 over took Camry for bestseller here speaks in volumes, GM make plenty of sedans in other nations where they sell.
Unlike Ford you can still walk in a Chevy or Caddy dealership and pick an actual car that you want. Provide that it’s less players in the field now than 2016 im sure GM will have sedan replacements by 24′ or so if it’s money to be made on it.
Another Barra and leadership blunder.
I remember the time when the sedan line up for Chevrolet alone was Sonic, Cruze, Malibu, Impala and SS and that wasn’t that long ago
I’m reading a lot of death and gloom posts about GM not being here a few years from now. All because of sedans or lack of? Really? GM is selling a lot of high profit models and less of the low profit or NO profit models now. The ATP of GM models sold is quite good and they are quite competitive in the overall market. It’s important to note that GM could easily bring several sedans back into the US from their Chinese line in short order (LaCrosse, CT6, etc). However, I do feel they need to have more sedans here now.
Another point to make is how this distinction between SUV, CUV and sedan has been watered down so much. A few weeks ago I was driving along and got along side a brand new Ford Escape. That thing looks nice and I was hard pressed to know what it was at first. I actually thought it was some type of new import sedan with a higher ride height. Now compare that to the Escape from 10 years ago that was a true SUV box. My thought then and point I’m making is that we all seem to be hanging onto our idea of sedans of years ago. Now let’s talk MPG. That was another huge difference years ago and is not an issue much today. The average SUV/CUV gets nearly the same as a similar sized sedan. And it’s not like years ago where the true SUV’s were built heavier (for actual off roading) and had bigger engines. Today the average SUV/CUV has the same engine, trans and suspension as their counterpart cars.
Lastly, what do they consider the Spark and Bolt? I honestly don’t know that without researching it. However, I drive a Spark now and would certainly not call it a CUV. It’s nothing more than a small sedan in hatch form. Point is, why are we so hung up on the “classification” of the vehicles when they are all so similar? So unless you are specifically talking about style (traditional sedan format vs. a more upright box design), does this all really matter?
Just when the internal combustion engine reach a point of almost 0% emissions, they dump them for EV’s ” silly sheeple” I will keep my eco tech cavalier sedan running till the day I die Thank You.
Just as I predicted.
Bring back Pontiac’s muscle and sporty commuters and bring back the Chevy Impala.
Blind loyalty and screwing over there workers they should have gave up on sedans. Made in Michigan and have no awd and cars get less mpg than many other vehicles.
Bring back the grand am, grand prix, and Bonneville. Used to see tons of those on the roads. The T/A while your at it. Pontiac was always the sportiest looking, fun to drive cars they made. Bring back Pontiac!
Last, and best Pontiac was the G8 GT. Made by Holden in Australia. No going back to that source for more, GM shuttered them too. As I said, if they were smart, GM would dig up some of the better car names from their past. They couldn’t be any worse sellers than the letter/number jumbles their pushing now!
Pontiac should come back but in these days it can only be an E/V and PHEV niche brand with 2-3 models.
Because I suggest Pontiac as an E/V don’t mean non-performance. The Firebird can return as an E/V counterpart to Camaro and so on.
GM miss management is killing GM! NOT SEDANS, NOT NAMES OF CARS! GM miss management is lost and clueless but they are too delusional to see that THEY are the problem! All these fools are good for is cost cutting and outsourcing US jobs oversees! If these clowns were doctors they would be bleeding there victims with leaches…….
Couldn’t agree more Cadriver
Ten years ago Rick Wagoneer closed four US truck plants because” customers were making a permanent change to small cars”.
Now Mary Barry has closed US car plants because “customers want trucks and SUVs”
Honestly, I’m surprised that GM has lasted as long GM as it did with the way the GM leadersheep is steering the company.
GM keeps blaming the workers but still refuses to realize that mis management is killing them.
Bring back 1981 buick regal but redesign with face lift. Ls motor
I’ve bought 3 of GM products in the last few year’s. 1st one/ 2006 Buick lucerne. A piece of junk. Not GM’S fault. The dealership fault. 2nd one/ 2008 Chevy Trailblazer. New ecm and rack and pinion. 3rd 2012 Malibu ltz. Engine blew up at 59,000 miles. Cost $5 700.00. But, I bought a 2004 Buick Century. Good car.
How the f*** do you manage to blow up engines in cars, ppl? Even if you dont know ICEs need oil change form time to time.
This is ludicrous. I wonder why people restrain from making up stories like “wheels fell off right as I had left the dealership”
I sometimes think these are written by people using their laptops while cooling their heels in the waiting room of some service department. They are there for yet another $300 repair that is cosing them $2,000 because of the “precision engineering” and the “well respected” star or roundel on the trunk. They just can’t bring themselves to admit their folly, so they make stuff up to justify what they have. Variation on that theme: I had a workmate whose Toyota Tundra was in the shop quite often. He sure was glad it wasn’t a Chevy; it would be far worse. I pointed out to him that the vehicle he was getting rides to and from the dealer in (mine) was… a Chevy truck. That the company pickup was also a Chevy, and was only ever in the shop for oil changes and tire rotations.
I have been driving since 1965. had exactly ONE bad GM out of at least 15 vehicles, and by bad, I mean it had an issue that could not be resolved. The rest were dead-on reliable, taking very few repairs, with maintenance costs that were not obscene. No $65 oil filters. No $45 license plate bulbs, even for the three Cadillacs. Just reliable cars that can be maintained in virtually any town where I care to go.
Over these 55 years, I have had US, Swedish, German, Italian, and Japanese cars. The most fun was the Italian one. By far the worst were the German ones. When it comes to start it, put it in gear, and go mile after mile with no catastrophes, my GMs and MoPars have been by far the best. I had one Ford product, but it was an older model when I got it. Again: maintenance and some wear-parts replacements. Aside from that, completely reliable.
