quote: And how stupid it is to try and blame such an insignificant percentage of media for the Volt's poor showing. Which was selling poorly, I might add, before ANY stories of exploding cars came out.
quote: Anyway nobody is "after" the Volt.
quote: The American people, by an absolute MASSIVE majority, was against the GM/Chrysler bailouts.
quote: If you want dissenting opinions to be silent and support a biased mainstream media who wants to cheer-lead tax money being used for these kinds of things, I don't know what kind of journalist supports that.
quote: Several of my family
quote: And there goes your objectivity and thus credibility on this topic. Lots of people have lost their jobs. But as long as your family members kept theirs through a bailout, hey, it's all good!
quote: Yeah, the press went overboard with the fire thing. But they also went overboard in their initial gushing over the vehicle. For whatever reason the Volt is a rock star, and rock stars get overly glowing praise when they are going well and ridicule when they are not. Deal with it Lutz.
quote: Love or hate the Volt, you have to give GM credit for going big.
quote: It could have tried to make the next sh1tty Prius clone
quote: Hey get off of my old lady and back onto the Cruze!Oh wait...:P
quote: I would be riding the Cruz like my old lady
quote: GM was handed billions of dollars, damn right they can "go big"! You act like they were taking a big risk and we should give them a medal.
quote: I agree. Instead they did something even smarter. The Cruz and Cruz Eco. The Cruz is the REAL saving grace of GM, yet gets completely overshadowed by Volt hype. Without the Cruz, GM would be in serious trouble.
quote: Instead Lutz, proving he's anything but forward thinking, devotes national press time to ignore his top seller and promote more ill-will between GM and the public. Attacking the "media" and defending a car that people are NOT buying. The LAST thing he should be focusing on is the bailout and the Volt. Why remind people of GM's sorted past when he could be talking about what a hit the Cruz is!?
quote: But I think the same sentiment (high risk, high reward) that bred the Cruz bred the Volt. The Volt was just a little TOO futurist to succeed in the current market.
