you bets ya
Not buying any new car or truck until they start making plugin biodiesel hybrids!
Why would anyone buy a Vega/Cavalier/Cobalt/Cruze? Every time GM launches these econo boxes they claim that it's a new dawn for GM's new cars and they can now compete with the big boys only to realize a year later that they still can't produce a good small car and they can't make any money at it. The Cobalt is rated near the bottom of all small car ratings. As was the Cavalier and Vega. Now suddenly a bankrupt company has figured it out??? I doubt it.
doesn't matter whether the "locals" buy it or not, we always support GM. The real question is how will the rest of the country respond to the "new" model to determine it's success. If the rest of the country purchased GM like they do here in the Valley, GM would have never been in trouble in the first place........
Not planning on buying a Cruze 'cuz I'm holding out for the next GM model, the ORLANDO.
LOL, who thought that name up?....The ORLANDO. Based on the name only, I predict that that model line is doomed, big-time)
Kind of wonder where they get the names for some of these vehicles....Alero, Rondo, Prius, Spectra, Sentra, Tourag, Vibe, just to name a few. Can't figure out what was wrong with Roadmaster, Custom, Bonneville, Newport and other names that we could all pronounce.........
They get these names from the same place pharmaceutical companies get their products names ... marketing research.
I'm not planning on buying any vehicle this year, new or used. Much less buying a GM product.
Plug in hybrid? Would work well for a family car and Wife. Wife works a few miles from home (looks outside), I wonder if they come with an electric heater and how well it works. If she had to start the engine there would be no point in having a hybrid.
Understand this: Some day getting there will become more important than how you get there. Were heading down that road now, most people don't realize that, much less want to accept it.
GO buy a Toyota and die Heard they changed the name to TORO TORO TORO AKA KILL KILL KILL
With the Volt I'm skeptical of any car that relies heavily on electronics ever since toyota made their customers kamikazes with their electronic problems.
As for the Orlando, the thing looks like one of those ugly honda element or ford flex brick things. Then again, I don't understand that entire category of vehicles so I can't knock something I don't understand.
The Cruze has a standing chance provided it is priced right and delivers when you actually drive the thing which is the only thing that matters except for reliability in rebuilding your brand. I expect the Cruze to perform much better than the cavalier or cobalt ever did in sales but GM still seems to be striking out with everything except for the Malibu.
This question really skews the survey, because many of us are not ready to buy a car yet and when we are ready we buy based upon the track record of the vehicle. So, the answer is no, give us 3 years and then maybe, just maybe, it could happen. I am a GM fan and owner, but I have been disappointed with many of their new offerings, because they have not lived up to the hype and the vehicles have had such a short history before they disappear.
"Thank you UAW"
LOL! OMG that is funny.
