Toyota has received many tax free benifits from the US and many low interest money from japan to keep them afloat. The US govt built the japanese auto industry after ww2.

Good part is GM hasn't sold many of them. But a good chance for people to dump these over priced money sucking lemons.

I think this is HUGE. The news article says that GM is making this offer to assure customer satisfaction but GM has made previous blunders (engineering, manufacturing, marketing, etc.) and ignored the consequences to customers. I suspect management knows there is a significant problem with the current battery design and is trying to take some preemptive steps before the sh*t really hits the fan. .

"I think this is HUGE. The news article says that GM is making this offer to assure customer satisfaction"
60 years of thinking about the customers and then 40 years of neglect.
Now 1 year after the bankruptcy they are beginning to understand why they went bankrupt in the first place and they know they have to pretend to think about the customers.
They start small not to overdo it and the 6.000 that bought the hybrid is a good start and practice thinking about customer satisfaction.
I guess that is HUGE step for them.
If they would come out with a quality electrical car it would be a next HUGE step in the development of the new GM.

Zenn Motors is far ahead of GM. Yet big corruption bucks are spent to make sure companies like Zenn and Tata can't sell to you. They have a $11,000 pure electric car, no gas or gas engine to service, tune or depreciate. If you want electric, that is the way to go.
Tata Nano, user serviceable for $3500, Europe crash rated at over 50 mpg. Heater works too. But unions and corrupt auto bay millions in DC to make sure you can have artificially inflated US pricing.
Any offering has to have economics considered. Someday cars might be so standardized that you roll into Walmart and they swap out whole wheel hubs and motor assemblies like Lego, all standardized be it Ford, GM, Toyota or whatever....in and out in 1 hour while you shop and cheap.
Either that or like a Tata Nano, so cheap you don't need a loan and if it only lasts 5 years, so what. The capital depreciation costs are less than $60/month and the vehicle is easy to recycle as no lithium hazards. Sort of like beer cans.
I really don't think GM has a way out. With household incomes 40% less now than in 2006, the cash isn't there to support big fat corrupt USA auto.
