I would be more interested if it was a bio-diesel plug-in hybrid for less than $30,000!
With diesel fuel costing over $4.00 per gallon and 9 times out of 10 it always costs more than gasoline, going bio-diesel would be the only way to go.
A plug in is a waste of good money.
This would be a relevant question if it were 1980. Of course, the vindicator was probably a relavant newspaper back in 1980 as well.I still visit the website though, so I can be irrelevant too. Support local irrelevancy.
BLA BLA BLA you did not work for GM so please stop insulting the hard workers who saved this great companywith your hate . You were a Delphi salaried worker not GM .
Fairandequal...I understand your feelings against GM. It makes it tough when you put in so many years for an organization and they later turn their backs on you as if you have been consumed and spit out like a grape seed. I felt the same way when my union refused to stand up for us so their cronies could keep their jobs. Life is unfair many, many times during our time on this planet. How we deal with it is what makes us who we are. I have to remind myself of that often.
This is now a new and reorganized GM, with new management...owned by all Americans, so if Americans boycott GM, they are boycotting their own store.
I won't buy anything GM.
The union folks need to speak up about how many GM jobs to make models for China and other markets are being made outside the US.
Next, GM OnStar is nothing but a big nasty scary monitoring service logging folks, even if they don't subscribe to the service. Last few weeks OnStar's spying has been all over the media. OnStar can/will sell data on you to insurers, government, etc.
Recent OnStar dealings with Google, the biggest privacy snoop ever, are the final nail in the coffin for me.
BLA BLA BLA you did not work for GM
I personally would not purchase a diesel but I'm sure there is a market for it.
Instead of pushing all these expensive "green" vehicles that "save money", we should look into Nat Gas,=. Natural gas makes more sense to develop, particularly in the near term. Nat Gas costs roughly half of what gasoline costs per gallon. Cars would cost much less than electric and hybrid cars, and you can fill it at home with a home filling station. The only thing missing is gas stations for filling up on the go, subsidize that.
Fair . Try to get this through your head . You did not work for GM you did not join the UAW when you had the chance. We ( those who work for somebody else which I do not and never have ) get to take their pension with them . The UAW workers had a contract that was given a ok by the court ( Bush's court ). If you worked for GM for 22 years and you worked 30 years than you did not work for GM for 8 years . GET OVER IT . And just because some GM haters stick up for you do not get a big head . And BLA BLA BLA is the best thing to say about your hate . GM gave you a good living for 22 years and now you hate them . WOW you are a loser
YOU DID NOT WORK FOR GM It was Delphi that took your rights away . Your pension time was turned over to them . They took it away . And I will not stoop down so low as to call names . GM did not give it to the UAW the Court did and it was the court who said their contract was in force. GM had nothing to do with it .
Hope all see the hate that come from your commemts Fair
Sadly, In this country, money buys votes, and democracy is often three wolves and a sheep voting on who is for dinner. BTW, although I buy American, I want neither GM nor diesel.
Search4Answers- I really hope they do not start making natural gas vehicles and no propane vehicles either. Both gases are highly explosive and likely to cause very serious or deadly injuries in an accident, way more than gasoline or diesel causes. Diesel vehicles do not make sense right now either because they cost more to buy and then the diesel fuel is more expensive than gasoline.
