The union workers can only build or put parts on a car that the G.M. leaders tell us to put on.
When, and if, the union workers feel like putting them on.
And did you know a lot of the parts that fail are built over seas, and not by us bad union workers.
Really? Such as? (And I'm not talking switches and light bulbs, either.)
I have seen to (sic) many problems that G.M. just lets go, like steering lock up, sun roof rattles, cracked welds on the body at the right front fender causing rattles (done by robots) and the list gos on and on.
Steering system manufactured by union employees, sun roof installed by union employees, robots maintained and programmed by union employees.
Why are cars over seas so much better?
J.D. Powers says, over and over, that they're not. It's a myth that's perpetuated by people who still live in the 80's. The Malibu is highest rated mid-size, the G6 has gotten awards in initial quality as well. FACT - Foreign cars are losing ground in the top 10 ratings every year.
Why is G.M. building such gas hoggs?
Haven't been paying attention, have you? 32mpg for a 3.5L is FAR from being a gas "hogg" (sic). And the 5.7L in the Vette will get you almost that as well. Compare the mileage ratings for the GM mid-size car lineup against the lineup of the japanese companies - you'll be disappointed.
Why don't the put a four banger in the G6 to get better gas milage,
Now it's obvious that you haven't been paying attention. They DO put a 4 cylinder in the G6. It's called a 2.2L ecotec.
No G.M. has all its hopes in it new truck line thats going to save the Corp.
Sorry, bad assumption. The truck line is, quite simply, profitable because it sells volume per projection. (probably because they're so poorly designed, right?)
And I won't get in to the problems they have with the trucks, that are still going to go to market.
Damn crappy Chevy trucks. I guess I need to DRIVE my 3/4 ton (320,000 miles) and my 1/2 ton (178,000 miles) to the junkyard. Man those Chevy trucks are SO poorly engineered - thank God the union lineworkers were there to make sure all the poorly engineered junk was put together so well. Funny, my brother has been working on the Silverado line for many years, and he hasn't mentioned all these problems of which you speak. He has, however, commented how he hates to work in a union shop since the work ethic is so poor and we were raised to do the best job possible and be proud of it.
And that will be the unions fault also!!!
Yes...yes it will. Until the "job for life" mentality is ditched, we will continue to receive more of the same laziness and lack of attention to detail from union workers.
