GM announced this morning that Bob Lutz and Gary Cowger had "relinquished" their duties and President Rick Waggoner will assume their duties. Maybe Marc will be able to shed more light as to what this means to GM customers.
I sold GM cars for 20 years, the answer is RIGHT before their eyes, and they have to be blind not to see it! :cool
GM builds boring lackluster cars, no style, no inspriation, no pazazz!
They need to take a look at their cars of the 1960's, and early 70's.
See what they were, what they said, and what they stood for;
Cadillac - "The Standard For The World"
Buick - "When Better Cars Are Built, Buick Will Build Them"
Oldsmobile - "Always A Step Ahead"
Pontiac - "The Wide Track People Have A Way With Cars"
Chevrolet - "Building A Better Way To See The USA"
30 years ago, all those things were true, not anymore! :nono
I gues when the boss says drive - you do - wet roads or not.....
DETROIT Apr 4, 2005 — General Motors Corp. chairman and chief executive Rick Wagoner said Monday he will take over daily responsibility of the huge automaker's struggling North American division.
GM North American chairman Bob Lutz and GMNA President Gary Cowger will relinquish those roles and focus full-time on global product development and global manufacturing and labor, respectively, the company said.
The world's biggest automaker recently slashed its earnings outlook for 2005, citing slumping North American sales of its sport utility vehicles and trucks, along with weaker-than-expected business in the car line.
