TO THE EDITOR:
"Chevy Volt's powertrain deserves to live" (autonews.com, Nov. 27) by Richard Truett was well-researched and factual. One misconception I continually try to correct, though: All of the appealing, well-executed cars and trucks that appeared in the few years post-Chapter 11 were NOT the product of a re-energized, refocused leadership with a new sense of urgency, etc. Whether Volt or Camaro, they were all well on the way before Chapter 11. The "revolution" in design and product excellence began in 2002, shortly after my arrival. Chapter 11, mercifully, did not kill it.
