How do you feel about that? with all the bailout money we gave them they head off to China to create jobs..Pretty soon GM cars could be an import!

Well first of all you can't come on here and make a statement like that without some references to back it up! Do you have a news article we can link to?

Hmmm.. GM has always had a strong Asian Market. In fact if they had sold the Asian Market they wouldn't have needed the bailout... FYI you do know that BENZ is technically not an import considering they do have assembly plants in the U.S. So your driving an AMERICAN CAR.

The Canadian government and the Ontario government bailed out both GM and Chrysler in Canada.

Please be sure of the facts before sending out statements like this!

Thats true... as well as Toyota, Nissan ect...., they still produce/Make these cars overseas but assemble them here, circumventing the import tariffs Lets keep the facts straight its all a money game nothing more nothing less American workers/Canadian workers mean zip..... in the grand scale of things.

Ding, Ding, Ding, and that is why they will relocate with plants to follow, manufacturing here is pretty well gone the way of the dinosaur, we noticed that here in the great white north 20 years ago, the smart ones upgraded there education and went into service area the ones who stayed in manufacturing end, without upgrading there education became an unemployed statistic hence the disappearance of the middle class.

Things change over time. Perhaps there is something more current which might have some updated information?

The first article pretty much says "Hey, GM is selling lots of cars in China and are going to build more there because sales in China are growing exponentially and some people are SPECULATING that GM MIGHT move their headquarters to China."

The second is someone's OPINION that GM should move to China, not an article stating that GM is planning on it, or that it's even in consideration.

Additionally, these articles are fairly old and the likelihood of GM moving their headquarters to China is so minimal it's not even funny.

The personal insults and baseless claims won't get you very far on this site. You'll take notice of that fact quickly.

And posting months old articles claiming "OMFG GM IS MOVING TO CHINA BECAUSE THIS GUY THAT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH GM SAID HE THINKS IT'D BE A GOOD IDEA FOR THEM!" won't either.
