GM up to its old tricks. KehlBayern August 22, 2011 News GM apparently doesn’t want to honor the warranties on Impalas made under the ‘Old GM‘ (aka General Motors, as opposed to Government Motors which some have dubbed the recent incarnation). Wow. Just when you thought American car companies were starting to come around they do something stupid like this. Thank you for the bailout. Thank you for freeing us from the shackles of union labor – now, please excuse us while we nail you to the wall like we used to do and move everything to China, where we are big man on campus. GM, that’s sad, and tells me you’re going to end up right back in the scrap heap if you don’t stop making crap and trying to run away from it. Using a legal technicality to escape responsibility when you’ve received so much ‘charity’ is just absolutely appalling.
