Yeah, and another problem is parts availability. I have 2008 Impala fleet vehicle in the dealer for 3 days now, and they are having trouble finding a fuel pump. The service writer says they are trying to build the fuel pumps, but there is one little part that they need to get from a supplier that may have shut down during the bankruptcy. He says they have thousands of fuel pumps that are sitting around but need to have this final part snapped in. Fortunately, they found a fuel pump at another dealer, and are supposed to receive it on Monday.
I can see potential big problems ahead with unacceptably long repair times. Even if my personal policy against buying a car from any company that was bailed out and given to the unions was not in effect, I would have to think real hard about whether I would want to sink big $$ into a GM product.
Now, when they go bankrupt AGAIN, if they truly start from scratch with private capital and without the union manufacturing force, I might not only buy a vehicle, but would seriously look at investing.
