I hope for the sake of the motoring public that GM is past saving-it's a bankrupt company with a second-rate dealer network and unremarkable, unreliable products.

Bet they get some allagro over that idea.

Do you mean the same motoring public which bought 9 million of their vehicles last year making them the Worlds biggest automaker once again? GM is still a massive company which employs more than 200,000 people worldwide.

Granted, most of its sales are in America, in Europe they're struggling but the VW Group has plenty of different brands but they cant sell as many vehicles as GM. All i'm saying is theres plenty of people out there who guy GM products so i dont think they're going to vanish just yet.

No, I'm sure they won't vanish soon unless fleet sales dry up, on which Vauxhall at least is largely dependent.

If you like useless information, Boris Johnson's first wife was called Allegra, and his second is called Marina. Expect to see Maxine on his arm any tme now....

Is there a spellcheck on this site?

So it's a good thing that they are not going to vanish?

Its good for the 9 million people who bought a vehicle from them last year and the 200,000 people they employ.
