Don’t get me wrong, I hope GM–and the rest of the nation’s automakers–have finally turned a corner, but why did it take a total financial collapse and a massive government buyout before GM decided it was time to innovate beyond “bigger, badder and bolder” to “leaner, greener, smarter?”
Perhaps if they’d gone down that road a decade ago they, and we, wouldn’t be in this mess. Better late then never I suppose.
