2004 was supposed to be a good year, with record # of new vehicle
introductions, GM brass was reported to be wearing pins saying '29' on
their shirts for the amount of market share they would be up to by the
end of 2004.
Yet now its clear that once again GM lost market share, even with the
biggest incentives on the planet. Another percentage point of market
share was again lost to the big Japanese companies.
By next year, GM will no longer even be the biggest automobile company
in the world, Toyota will be. When asked about this, the CEO of GM had
only this to say, "It wouldn't surprise me". Great fighting words,
already conceding that Toyota will overtake you within a year to be the
worlds largest auto company.
I guess people do care more about quality. Listen up UAW memebers,
you've killed yourselves and your next generations jobs by being so
lazy and pathetic with your demands.
