Answer this question

  • Has the reliabity of GM cars increased any since the bailout?

Very much so. The brand cut was effective and the new quality manager is doing pretty well considering the new line is Chevys and Cadillacs. The new c7 has been sold out for weeks in advance. Sadly the trucks are still not as successful as ford trucks. They have also cut some brands out side the us to save money and are considering pushing holden to increase profit until 2016 or they'll cut them too. The repay has been well. I believe they're doing better than the Chrysler bailout strategy.

GM was starting to get their act together well before the bailout. Remember, the design and production changes that make cars reliable are on the drawing board half a decade before the car ever appears on showroom floors. The Malibu used to be the poster child for GM's design problems. Look at the source to see how much better it has been doing since 2006. Some of that improvement started in 2005, when GM turned to intake manifold gaskets that were compatible with the Dexcool GM mandated. By 2008 GM finally had their notorious Electric Power Steering under control as well. It was not the bailout that brought about the improvement, it was management finally getting tired of the recurring problems.

Same, no change in quality. I am pretty sure though the changes in their bonuses increased though

Check the recall records. NO brake pads in calipers, give me a break how does that EVER get past quality control? First advice never buy a new model first year out let the get the bugs out. Top management at GM is still a revolving door issue also. Why are so many coming and going? 300,000 Cruzes recalled due to brake issues, and Cruzes catching fire due to oil being caught on a shield. I also know that it has had heater core failures early also. Shop and research any major purchase carefully! Go talk to a parts counter man that will tell you the truth about what they are repeatedly handing out to the Technicians, that is knowledge.

I've seen GM 'reinvent' themselves so many times that I am not chancing it ever again.
