Seriously, would you bail out this friend?
GM Announces New Small Car For US Market
GM plans to bring the five-door hatchback G3 to the US early next year that offers an EPA estimated 27 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway while providing the best shoulder and hip room in the segment for seating five adults.
Meanwhile VW Golf BlueMotion Gets 74 MPG  On Sale Mid-2009
A new hyper-efficient 1.6 TDI diesel engine also means that the latest offering boasts fuel economy of 74.3mpg (combined), an improvement of around 20% on the Mark V, while still enabling acceleration from 0-60 mph in 11.2 seconds, apparently due to improved aerodynamics and a new ’sporty’ gearbox… while providing MORE shoulder and hip room for seating five adults than the GM
MY FATHER HAD A 78′ Corolla that sat five and got 40mpg and so does my 93′ GEO Prism (Corolla drivetrain)
I think GM needs a “technology intervention” and not financial support… giving them more money is like taking a drunk to a bar to talk about their drinking problem.
