GM is still too bloated and frankly doesn't make much worth buying. Haven't for a long time.

I don't mind the ratings at all.

They say that Toyota and Lexus sales were up 40.7%. In fact this is exactly what they say. From Forbes, whom we all know always has the most accurate lists

Quote:
Forbes:

In fact, Toyota reported a 40.7% gain in sales last month over March 2009; its Lexus division was up 42%. (Generous buyer incentives greatly contributed to those numbers.) And although Consumer Reports has removed its "recommended pick" distinction from Toyota vehicles involved in the current recall, many analysts are standing by their previous assessments of Toyota's well-made products.
They leave out where Ford was up 42.8%
Nissan was up 43.3%
Subaru was up 46.4%
VW was up 40.9%
Maserati was up 105.4% (With a whole 189 units sold)
Maybach was up 75.0% (With 7 total sales... yes that is a single number. 7)

Taken from the Wall Street Journal

So what? GM still has more total sales than Toyota at this point with just over 2000 more units sold that Toyota during March.

GM should hang their head in shame, along with Chrysler. Ford on the other hand looks to be doing things right for a change.

The worst car I ever owned was a Mazda RX-7. It had a rotary engine. This apparently was a huge problem because when the car broke down, all the mechanics I talked too would cringe and say ohhh...it has that "rotary engine." Repair costs were super high. I do not know how to work on cars so not sure if it was a horrible engine or not but none of my mechanics seemed to like it. The car was plagued with all kinds of problems. I was glad to get rid of it.

I still believe GM makes the worst cars in the world. I would buy ANY other make, even Chrysler before I would lay out my hard earned money on a Government Motors POS.

Wow how/why did the F250 make this list? Either this list isn't accurate or...

That's ok I happen to own a few GM cars that are 20 + years old and still running strong. Imagine that!

That article echoes my experience with vehicles over the years. Fords have been better than Chrysler and Chrysler was better than GM. But Toyotas have been the best by a wide margin. And the one Honda I owned was nearly as good as a Toyota.

So do I. My old Suburban has 280,000+ HARD miles it and still runs like a top. Far better and longer than any of the imports I have owned.
