    "Jealously" is an ugly emotion!

    This is just one of the pathetic positions Hussein has placed our Country in. Sold out to the Commies, with our money, borrowed from the Chinese, for which we are still paying interest to the Chinese. I think I feel like puking. I have purchased many GM products in the past, Oldsmobiles, Pontiacs, Buicks, Chevys, but never again. Those union guys are on the time clock to no employment.

    in 1992, the dodge cummins 4x4 i bought, found out later, was built in mexico. not the engine/trans, but the truck. in 2001, i sold that thing and bought a ford lightning. come to find out, it was built in canada. in 2005, sold the lightning and got a silverado d'max. of the 3, the only one built in the US (from everything can i see) was the gm product.
    when silverado's are coming in off a ship, i might worry about it. just because gm is manufacturing stuff in china doesn't mean they are manufacturing complete vehicles to import into the us. ford has been involved in manufacturing in europe for decades - doesn't mean it's to import or to replace american manufacturing for americans.

    Hate to agree with R & J on this one but if GM is building and selling cars in China to the Chinese and making money for the corporate bottom line, good on ya!. Maybe we will get paid back sooner!

    Were you aware that China tried to buy GM in 2007? Chinese companies have bought up a lot of companies that supply to GM. Most have been relocated to China. Speculation is that China will increase costs for parts that they now own the patten on to force GM into having to sell. How's that for GM's bottom line.
    China now owns Volvo - Zhejiang Geely Holding Group


    BTW, I love my Chevy truck that I bought in 2002. My next truck will be a Ford.

    1998 1/2 ton gmc 2wd 4.3, 277,000 HARD miles, no major issues other than a tranny 2k miles ago. Made in Indiana. Love it.
    '09 3/4 ton d-max , bought it with 5k miles, has 17k or so on it, could'nt be happier.

    Our internally economically hostile country put these corps in out sourcing postitions.. why should they invest here just to lose money.

    '02 Chevy 2500 HD 4x4. 496. 105,000 miles. Bought it new in Nov. of '01 before it became Gov't Motors and well before it becomes China Motors. Will probably have it for another 10 years unless we decide to go with a camper and get a dually.

    I am opposed to doing business with China. The Chinese are laughing their asses off, because they are outsmarting us at our own capitalistic game. A lot of our wealth is going to a regime that is building a navy they hope to rival ours. They eventually want to control all Asian waters. That is just the start. Do not be fooled into thinking China is our friend.

    I am not opposed to outsourcing to countrys that are friendly to the USA, it seems we have a global economy now.

    OK, I have six kids and even more grandchildren. When we load up to go somewhere as a family I need to haul bodies and I always have. Who wants to tell me what company manufactures something competitive to the Suburban that can comfortably haul 8 or even 9 bodies as we did yesterday on a three hundred mile trip? I'm all ears. As far as my truck, I'll stick with my Duramax Dually, thank you very much.

    You see, components of every car manufacturer are made globally so who is to say what country made your car? The wages the UAW have demanded are now beyond unsustainable. Unless someone can bust up the UAW, I agree with their decision to move offshore where they can remain competitive. I have proof that they build very good automobiles!

    Interesting information considering Obummer claims success in bailing out the auto industry. The guy must where rose colored glasses.

    Looks like GM share prices are still heading down. General Motors’ Share Price Tanks: Taxpayers On the Hook - Independent Journal Review

    No suprise, news of goverment inflated sales numbers and risky financing are to blame.
