    I have confidence in G.M. No reason not too. They are trying harder than any other car company to be a great car company . Why ? They know they need too. They have done and are doing in my opinion a good job. I own a Toyota but plan on buying either a Buick or Malibu soon.

    "Total Confidence - Unless You Work For GM..."

    All of the plans based off the Hyundai Assurance Plan offer additional piece of mind, but if you want to compare the GM and Ford plans, there are several benefits to the Ford offering vs. GM's:
    1. Ford employees are eligible for their plan - GM employees are not
    2. Ford covers up to 12 months of payments, GM covers 9 months of payments
    3. Ford covers up to $700/month ($8,400 maximum benefit), GM covers $500/month ($4,500 maximum benefit)
    4. Ford has a 30 day waiting period following purchase before coverage begins, GM has a 90 day waiting period

    "rmb"

    Let's all remember one thing - GM is using taxpayer money to run their program, Ford is using its own!!

    "I have confidence in Obama"

    How can you not have confidence in GM? They are obviously backed by President Obama. I mean come on! He touted Buick's reliabiliy in Monday's public address and backs GMs warranty. Also, Ford does not match GMs payment protection.

    "Total Confidence"

    While this is not an attempt to bash GM while they're down, I can't help but notice the name, "Total Confidence". How can anyone possibly have total confidence that GM will pay their bills when the corporation can't pay its own?

    "Oops--spell check"

    I meant "their", not "there". Chalk it up to someone in Detroit really annoyed at shoddy journalism.

    "How about doing some research, Colin?"

    First, you refer to Wagoner's $20m retirement plan--accumulated through decades of service--as a 'golden parachute'. Then you leave off at least one relevant factoid here--Ford's plan covers you if you get laid off only through Jan1, 2010, while GM's runs for 21 months. And GM's plan runs through Jun1, as well, per there (finally) functioning website (which I admit was a bad move on their part). Finally, is Ford matching GM's 5yr/100K warranty?
