I love american cars, always have but i have been saying for the last few years that GM is making some stupid ass decisions.
They are always too little too late. Look at how long it took them to release the HHR, how many years after the PT came out?
Then they did away with the name S10 which is very recognized and come out with a mid size truck with a different name. Mid size trucks have never sold well, look at the dakota, s10 outsold the hell out of them.
They killed the camaro, cause as they said, the RWD v8 performance car was dead. Then ford released the retro styled mustang and couldnt build them fast enough. Now they bring the camaro back, take 20 Fing years to get the damn thing to market and claim it to be superior of course since its GM. Speaking of, i saw one going down the road the other day, are they actually able to be purchased now? Im sure the price is no way near the 30k they are supposed to be, thats too close to GMs beloved corvette.
Then you have GMs passenger cars.....BORING. They look like cop cars and rentals, who wants to buy one of those? Basically to GM, if you cant afford a vette, which is a badass car, you get a POS. Menawhile the foreign companies design cool looking cars even if they are pathetic performancewise, atleast they look cool plus they have the quality rep behind them. I see a new toyota or nissan or even saw a Hyundia the other day and said "Thats a cool looking car for a family car" Then you look at american family cars......yawn.
Domestic car companies took a giant shit on the consumer decades ago, didnt take the foreign companies serious due to american arrogance and are now feeling the burn. I hate it but its true, the only thing saving them the last decade was the fullsize truck sales and they were about to lose that. Toyota sells the shit out of that new tundra but the nissan titan didnt do so well, heard it was being discontinued. Even though they did make vast improvements, the damage was done. It wasnt even the companies fault alot of the times, it was the shitty dealership service not taking care of the customers.
I just love watching everything that made america being destroyed by foreigners. Makes me all giddy inside when i think of all the people that died to make this country what it was only to have all pissed away by our own stupidity and arrogance. We use to build some of the most highly wanted cars in the world and did it for decades...what in the F happened to this country?
The trouble with doing something right the first time is that nobody appreciates how difficult it was.
