Has anyone watched Fox Business News in the past hour?

I was watching Fox Business News in the past hour and they were talking about all the GM recalls and they said the recalls MAY being down GM as a whole and it may force another company such as Ford or even Toyota to step in and FORCE a takeover of GM which includes Chevrolet!

They said the GM name was already tainted because of the bailout and now with all the recalls that GM could fold and not be able to stand on its own any longer!....

Im not trying to start any BS just relaying what I watched on Fox Business News.

Jesus Christ...who in the hell would take over GM and if something like that happened it pray it wouldnt be Toyota...I would have to puke

100% with you on that one ... I don't mind Toyota at all, in fact I own one as my DD and like it a lot, BUT I don't want them owning my American muscle car brand. I will not rout for a NASCAR driver driving a Toyota and wouldn't buy a Camaro from Toyota ... I'd go Mustang before I did that (j/k Vintage, I don't mind the Mustang (other than the 78 crapper we owned))

Interestingly, Toyota also recently crapped all over their name for a similar offense. Also interestingly, wasn't the Impala rated as like the #1 car by Consumers Reports or someone indicating Chevy is turning their quality around?

Yep Toyota IS the recall king and had to pay over $1 billion dollars to the US to get their ass out of hot water. I dont think its the new Chevy's with issues except for the 2014 Pickup's but its the older cars that are dragging them down....really make you wonder whats gonna happen...

I think GM can weather this storm too. They have great models and are still competitive.

I would think that since the gov't has already spent tens of billions bailing GM out in the past few years they would not let a foreign company step in now to buy them out. And if you want completely independent news, switch to MSNBC...
