Opinions?
Updates?
What would YOU do/tell these manufacturers?
Is it too late? Would it make a difference?

Plain and simple: TOO MANY CHOICES!!!

Why do people need 5 different SUV's to choose from at a Chevy dealership? There might even be more than that! Make one full size and one mini.....NO mid-sized or cross-over (what a joke) models!

Cross-over SUV.....it's a mini-van with a long hood!!!

It's not just Chevrolet, they all have this problem. PLUS GM needs to drop/sell some lines! Basically Buick, Pontiac, Saturn, Volvo, and GMC passenger truck lines need to go. Why do we need 2 pick ups with the same sheet metal but a different grille? Plus the GMC is always more money! Let the aftermarket make the different grilles! Cadillac needs to drop the "Ballerz" line of trucks as well! Does the world really need a Caddy pick up? Yes they look cool but enough is enough, I am SICK SICK SICK of over-indulgence!!! No soccer milf NEEDS a $60000 SUV!!!

Sorry if I offend anybody but changes need to be made. How many of us can afford a new pick up? Perhaps if the Big 3 made cut-backs they could actually CUT prices back a bit. Nicely optioned pick ups should NOT cost over $35000.

no bailout is going to fix a broken business model. domestic manufacturers can't produce a truck/car using union labor for the same price as a foreign automaker.

unless the unions agree to concessions that reduce the cost of doing business in america, i see the bailout as a temporary stop-leak in a dam that's about to break.

Look at what all the banks are currently doing.....asking for ANOTHER bail-out!!!

I want a bail-out..."I allowed myself to spend WAY too much on tools and trucks...can I PLEASE have $250,000 so I may continue on with my lifestyle???" It's only 1/4 of a million, it won't be missed.

WFT!!! Makes you want to smack a b#tch!!!

Here were my supervisor's lay-off choices: his rat informant on his 3rd DUI with no way to work, the person who drives the rat to work daily (they are neighbors), or me.....oh, such a tough choice!!!

Sorry, I needed to vent...
