: It's time for GM to keep a promise

06-13-05, 08:34 AM
For 25 years, General Motors has been telling me to wait. It has some great cars and trucks in the pipeline, and if only I'll wait, I won't be disappointed. (http://www.autonews.com/article.cms?articleId=53432)

I've been waiting for 25 years.

Sure, GM has to get the UAW to understand that the automaker has to have competitive labor costs. And the competition isn't Ford and Chrysler anymore.

Sure, GM has to get some relief on its health care and pension costs. But who agreed to those benefits and pensions in the first place?

Sure, GM has to bring its plants and production capacity more in line with its volume and share of market.

And, yes, GM is on the right track, sadly, of rationalizing its brands and models so that Pontiac, Buick and GMC will all act as one in a dealership.

But finally - and we've all been saying it for a long time - GM needs some gotta-have cars and trucks.

Damn you and your registration links!

I know, sorry. :halo:

But I think you'd probably like to have this news early, instead of wait until next week to read the 'free' link. ;)

GM needs someone who can come in and clean up the mess/simplify/improve the company.
