Not surprising at all. Just like Ford and Chrysler, GM is trying to buy out its employees and reduce cost any way they can. The foreign markets are extremely competitive because they do not have to pay there employees $50 an hour plus lucrative benefits for doing a job you can essentially train a monkey to do. Don't get me wrong, I am not trying to call anyone of there employees incompetent but just overpaid.
You know something is wrong when the people that are being paid to assemble vehicles are making much more money then the people who are suppose to buy the vehicles.
I don't know about you but I think that the price of cars is becoming outrageous. I want a camaro but I will not be able to afford one.
In the area where I live you can buy a pretty nice house for $200,000 dollars. So, if I wanted to buy a loaded convertible camaro, I would be buying a quarter of an nice house. I don't know the facts on this but did a fully loaded convertible first gen camaro cost as much as a quarter of a nice house?
As you can see I hate the fact that car prices are so high when I know that they do not have to be. If someone knows this subject well I would like to hear what your thought are.
Till the prices come down on the new cars I will just have to be happy buying old ones and fixing them up as I go.
