jim kin Posted: 8/26/2009 6:19am PDT Whatever GM does is soon to be history for me. I recently got rid of my(pos) Astro van for a Honda and my SSR is going next-Chevy does not have the parts to fix my under warranty problems with it. After 25 years of GM products they have turned me away. I'm not buying their substandard products any longer. Sign of excellence even falls off! Another example of corporate greed. Carl Posted: 8/25/2009 7:35pm PDT Right - they are going to have to rebuild the once-realistic "Mark of Excellence" reputation. Stressing the brand names won't hide the fact that they are still doing the corporate blending of components that ruined the reputation of Pontiac and Oldsmobile. It is good that Cadillac is so independent now, as it once was, except for current Corvette clone.
