GM Loses Sales Crown to Toyota


Source: money.aol.com...

Well Toyota did it 3 yrs early...!


Mike DiGiovanni, GM's executive director of global market and industry analysis, downplayed the significance of the drop to No. 2, saying that the automaker is focused on profitability rather than sales volume.



You think GM, Ford or Chrysler ever get back to number 1?

Imagine that.

Toyota has good, reliable, fuel efficient, quality built automobiles and trucks that have a very high resale value, and with Toyota, you get more bang for the buck.

And without the burden of the UAW dragging them down.

It may be too late for the UAW?

Here are the actual latest numbers...


GM said Wednesday it sold 8,355,947 cars and trucks around the world in 2008, falling about 616,000 vehicles short of the 8.972 million Toyota announced Tuesday.

For American auto manufacturers struggling to swim, they can swim like hell, but the UAW is the equivalent of a cinder block tied around their neck.
