Why GM is Doomed

Doomed, I tell you.

Not for the lactose intolerant…

1. Their all new car looks like a Jetta

But our fenders got portholes (HT: Rich Rodriguez, BTN)

I get confused every time I see one.

2. They have a full-page ad in this month’s Car and Driver, plus an aggressive TV ad campaign. The pitch point? Not the big ass V8, or “Stabilitrak” or “Magnetic Ride Control.” No, it’s heated washer fluid. (No, not this kind (See B)). WGAF? Really? Who? Oooh, scratch the crud off the windshield in the print ad so we can brag about our liquid magma washer goo. Woo-hoo!

2.a. “Buick – Beyond Precision.” Beyond stupid.

3. It’s almost too easy…

Lucerne,  meet Lucerne 

It’s not like they didn’t have fair warning.

  1. Looks to me like the bastard child of a Sable and older generation Acura. I think the ultimate sign of doom, though, is the gratuitous use of the fender port holes. Apparently Buick designers have no confidence in themselves or their customers.
    GM killed the wrong division.

  2. GM has been doomed for a long time do to the management and union greed. 90% pay on layoff… who in their right minds could even think than any business could keep the doors open doing that.

    GM now stands for Government Motors. And the guy behind it has never managed so much as a street vendor’s popcorn wagon, let alone a car company right along with the entire United States.

    We best add The United States to this GM tag. Gm is screwed and so is this country. Don’t believe me? Ask the folks two years ago if GM would have been bankrupt. Now look at the tripled national debt in just 100 days.
