RE: GM may go bankrupt
Yeah, i admit, GM is hardly the best automaker in the world. They've had their share of goof-ups, and of great cars. My first car was a '95 Buick Roadmaster Limited w/ the 350 LT1. It had a great powertrain, was very fast, and was very reliable, but that car had so many rattles, it was unbelieveable. A lot of the interior trim pieces were falling off. And typical of GM, everything was low quality inside, real hard plastics, low grade leather that wasnt supple at all. But it's much different in Cadillacs. Everything is top notch in that car. Mine is 13 years old, and its still extremely solid inside with only 1 small rattle. But my biggest problem with that car is that the 4.9 Liter V8's used in the 91-92 Cadillacs have a main bearing thump thats a design flaw. And GM knew that the aluminium v8 would leak coolant, so they made these pellets that prevent leaking that you put in the radiator when you do a coolant flush. So all in all, I would have to say that I believe GM's for the most part, are not engineered/designed thoroughly enough.
