But what I also believe today, all of the changes, the bailouts and such, it is what it is. We can bash the GM's the Chryslers and our government all we want, but We (you and I paid for this) so if we turn our heads and decide not to buy GM and Chrysler we all lose. I hear a great deal about how our hard earned money was used to fund these auto bailouts, and it IS our money. But the mentality to turn our backs on these manufactures throws an even larger wrench into the picture and we the American people lose. I've owned Fords, GM's, Toyotas and Nissans and have had good luck with every vehicle I have owned partially due to above average maintenance. To me they all deliver. So, turn your backs on the GM's and Chrysler only hurts you and I in the end.
If your complaining that your money was used for the bailout, then do everything you can to successfully get your return on investment (or bailout)call it what you want.
Bottom line is if those two manufacturers had been allowed to go down without some type of assistance, at that particular time, the economic impact, jobs especially would have been a catastrophe. Hopefully everyone including our governement has learned from this and if they have not, shame on them.
