    Ummmmm HELLO!?!?!
    GM lost 3.4 BILLION last Qtr. Aside from savy marketing, it's all smoke and mirrors. Too bad the public is buying it hook line and sinker. Hopefully the investment community will be a little bit wiser. Nothing to see here folks, move along

    Aheam. Thereis not much difference between pre-bankruptcy loans and bail out billions It is simply a matter of Government Motors geting publicity for transfering money to and from itself. GM and Xler are not fully functioing car companies.

    Definitely see this as a glass half full story. I still remain very skeptical / disgusted that unions were given such a massive equity interest during the financial machinations when their un-relenting / inflexible approach to pay, pensions, benefits, guarantees, etc was materially responsible for this debacle.

    American car companies having at least a little bit of cash tells me the economy is getting at least a bit better... I'll take that.

    Cautiously optimistic but if Chrysler doesn't start spitting out really, really, REALLY superb cars (unlike their current POS lineup), I don't care how many Fiats they get or whether they make money, they're still toast.

    I'm sorry, I'm under the impression that GM has received over $50 billion in loans...
    But don't take my word for it, it's in table-form right over here:

    All the work that has gone into returning Chrysler to profitabilty is laudable and encouraging. Dispite some misinformed or over zealous critics, Chrysler makes a whole line of viable and reliable products and folks like me are buying them based on past positive experience. Chrysler with Fiat has a business plan and a product plan which can bring success to the maligned and fabled American automotive icon.
    With a new Jeep Grand Cherokee, Chrysler 300C,Dodge Charger and revamped mid size cars in the wings and over a dozen new vehicles behind them, Chrysler has a shot at becoming a STRONG international auto manufacturer with it's partner Fiat. Personally, I'm betting on Chrysler.
