For GM, big dreams depend on small cars

Can General Motors Co. build a first-rate small car in America and make money selling it? Forty years of history says no, but the automaker's fate -- and thousands of jobs at plants in Michigan and Ohio -- rests on its ability to end a litany of failures dating to the 1971 Chevrolet Vega. GM sold 2.8 million compact and smaller cars around the world in 2008. From China to Europe to Brazil, GM's Chevrolet and Opel small cars match the best from Honda, Toyota and Volkswagen.

I have been afraid of GM being ruined because of the media more than the companies business decisions. They keep getting bashed for making SUV's, just like all of the other makers. Range Rover has a supercharged engine & I read about new models for some of the ones that make smaller vehicles Kia & I think Subaru being bigger. Funny how the other manufacturers are making their vehicles bigger while "people" seem to be wanting Gm to make smaller ones.

I hate it when someone is used as a scape goat.
