    They'll be bailed out as they were last year by the American government because they employ soooooo many people in America they cannot afford for GM to collapse, but certainly the cost cutting is quite evident with the launch of the Cadiliac(sure it was) thats basically an insignia underneath with some new external panellage. Even the dash is almost identical.
    Its a jam thing

    the new Caddi is basically a SAAB with a new badge, just not built as well.

    I hope they dont go under though.

    They wont go under, it would affect the US too much to allow that to happen. GM being in trouble is nothing new, they have been for a long time, as have Ford etc. IIRC Ford loose's around $1,000 in every car they sell.

    The way it is going they will go under
    my dad works in the Ellesmere Port and was telling me that they only have enough money to pay wages and everything else for the next two months after that the plant will be closed, from what ive heard and can gather its not looking good for them
