GM is clueless as always. The only people that want these cars are men
under 25 - which cannot afford them, and rich old men who have better
things to spend their money on - like viagra and a mistress. Everyone
else is looking for something that doesn't cost $0.20/mile to drive.
And they wonder why sales are slow? GM desperately needs to split into 2
companies, a bankrupt pention/financing company (99% of the company),
and the 7 employees that make realistic cars for the real world.
But I'm not worried, I'm sure those 7 people were already fired and took
jobs in Asia ;)
