GM reclaims title as No. 1 automaker

Published: Thu, January 19, 2012 @ 4:36 p.m.

DETROIT — General Motors Co. has retaken the title of world’s top-selling automaker, selling slightly more than 9 million cars and trucks across the globe.

The company said Thursday it sold 9.03 million vehicles worldwide last year, up 7.6 percent from 2010. That’s more than 1 million better than Japan’s Toyota Motor Corp., which took the title away from GM in 2008.

GM had held the global sales crown for more than seven decades before losing it to Toyota, as GM’s sales tanked while it headed toward financial ruin. In 2009, GM filed for bankruptcy protection, needing a U.S. government bailout to survive.

Thank God they got rid of Delphi salary .
What a load around their necks they were. They could not make a good decision if their life depended on it .
All they did was Blame the workers and hide under the desk .

Thank You Obama for saving GM.

Too bad so many hate Obama for saving our auto industry. So many would rather whine that America is broke, while supporting foreign automakers.

I agree, Obama deserves the credit here. GM was going under and he took a major political risk by saving the American company. Now that GM is back on top, look for the haters to dismiss his actions as trivial.

YS This all started with Bush not Obama , all he is a waste of a president , he helped save the auto industry but failed the rest of te country. If you look at the auto sales most are overseas not here.
