    What General Motors have to do is make better designes, when u look at sumthing from BMW or Mercedes u can not even think bout comparing with sumthing american.
    American Cars are ugly, useless, thirsty, cheaply made, and they desparetely need a new ENGINEER AND DESIGNER

    A bit of a generalization, you think?

    Who wouldn't favorably compare the new CTS to its German competition, for example?

    I think GM is having an off month along with all the others, but why is it everyone is always picking on GM they have better looking, more efficient, and more of what people want than Ford or Chrysler. The new Malibu is not boring, ugly, useless, and cheaply made. You can have the German cars, though they are good, reliability its pathetic the older the vehicle gets and the maintenance is ridiculous. Makes you wonder why they give you the first few years free. Once had a BMW, engine was a dream with only 125,000miles on it but the cost to operate it were insane, It went into the shop more then my 1982 Chevy Truck with 205,000 miles on it and original engine and transmission that have never been rebuilt. The Germans build a good car and so do the Japanese but no matter how good the car is or who makes it, there will still need to have work done on them which is the nature of any machine. Long term my GM vehicles have lasted longer and been more reliable than any BMW or Toyota I have owned, and the key is to just take care of them. I know GM has had problems in the past with quality and fit and finish but that is not today, you can't compare a 96 Silverado to an 08 Tundra and say the Chevy isn't any good because since 96 many changes have been made and they are building a truck that is better than anything built by them before. The new vehicles GM is putting out have light years ahead of what was being built in the 90's and it will be interesting to see what else comes out in the future.

    Gee whiz, Rahiee......
    Besides learning how to spell correctly, I'm surprised you're not comparing Lambhorghini's, Porsche's and Ferrari's to GM vehicles too!!!! Since when do you compare a $70,000 BMW or $80,000 Mercedes to a Chevy or a Pontiac? What planet are you living on? Sure isn't the planet Earth.
