    Not sure if you know this, but we are living in a global market. When it comes to cars, the fact is that very soon more new cars will be sold in China than in the US. Would you suggest that GM should dodge that market?

    Man, you guys come up with some funny shit. You complain about American companies not growing and when they try to expand into other markets you complain about that. For Christ sake, get your story straight.

    Most of the GM vehicles are being made in China.

    Most of the ones they are selling in China are being made in China, yes, and that is because GM is selling more cars in China than in the US. And because the market is expanding so fast, they will have some new plants in China with excess inventory, so a few cars may end up being shipped back to the US for sale in the US. But by no means are they building cars in China with the intent of sending them back to the the US while shutting down US plants.

    But hey, maybe we should suggest that they stop selling cars to the Chinese. I mean just because they are selling more cars there than here, that shouldn't make them focus on China. Hell, they shouldn't even be selling cars to those Commie Bastards. :cuckoo:

    Chinese prefer American built cars. Is it very economical to build a car overseas and ship it over there? No.

    Making the cars in China is common sense instead of shipping them halfway round the world. Do you see many cars in Europe constructed in American factories? No. And of course they should operate in China. Together with India, these are really lucrative developing markets. Statistics show the Chinese prefer American and European cars so why not sell there.

    I don't know about anyone else, but I want GM to make a profit. It's how the taxpayers will get their money back. They can't make a profit if they aren't competing globally. All the major car manufacturers make cars IN China.

    Not a fan of GM at all but its a sound business move on their part.

    No unions in China and they can produce cars for less.

    Very sound business move on their part.
