Why is GM legitimately trash, they can't even get their corvette division to not explode

>le media smear
greedy merchants everywhere!
They mean power brakes. But the brake booster will hold 2 to 3 easy brakes. Same thing as pressing the brake pedal a bunch when you car is off and it gets hard. Air bags will work as well because capacitors in the system.
this Jew and his trips speak the truth
>implying they will pay anywhere near that in the end
>implying they weren't just playing the odds either way
>implying if no one had died they wouldn't have only paid $2mil in fines
They got caught. Hind sight is 20/20
Now what's the next step of their master plan?
No one is saying they have a plan you idiot. They are just making decisions a they come. But no way in fuck they are forced to ACTUALLY pay those fines.
Still doesn't change the fact that hind site is 20/20.
>all this damage control
next time spend two seconds in google before talking shit, idiot.
>But no way in fuck they are forced to ACTUALLY pay those fines
Were you dropped on your head as a child? They HAVE TO PAY IT. There is no way out of it.
GM is a fucking horrible company. Deal with it.
>huur duur hindsight 20/20
They knew it was a problem and chose to ignore it. They knew it was responsible for deaths they still chose to do nothing about it. Only when they were threatened with sanctions so heavy it could only end in closing the doors did they choose to do something, and the number of $900m was settled on.
>implying no other auto maker does this shit
Its just fashionable to bash GM US now as it was to bash the previous fuckups
That said moderm GM suck and i would not touch a car made in the US after 2002
Also American, therefore the same wretched morals.
The vast majority of the mysterious gas pedal faults were found to be user error, funnily almost all of them happened in the US where coincidentally no one can drive.
The same emissions would've been considered perfectly fine and healthy ten years ago, all while critized in a system where regulations are far more lenient on pickup trucks and where half the population can rip out the catalytic converters without ever facing consequences.
Remember when it looked like GM was gonna get their shit together for real after the bailout?
>What is Australia
No wonder we dont have any industry anymore.
Horse shit we dont even export the falcon yet we had to can it because MUH EURO 6 MUH FWD CHINESE SHITBOX COMPETITION
i was so angry at ford au i gave my pos away and bought a GM car at least the platform lives on in the Cadillac so its not all gone to waste
>at least the platform lives on in the Cadillac so its not all gone to waste
If i'm not mistaken you are talking about the Sigma II platform? Cadillac now uses the Alpha platform which they developed themselves.
>Die because engine shuts off
Are people nowadays too dumb to be allowed to drive?
When I was 16, I used to go on a back road, speed up to 40-50 MPH, and shut the engine off so I'd know how it felt to drive without power steering and all that jazz.
>mfw GM has been absolutely BTFO
feels good being able to lurk without "muh vette" shitposters
