  • Is A GM-Google Alliance Desperate Or Brilliant? [View article]
    GM has been working on autonomous cars for about 20 years. I bet they know more about them than Google.

    I trust GM more than Ford, Toyota and the rest of them. I'll buy more GM stocks without any hesitation.

  • Detroit Auto Show: The Good, The Bad, The Ugly And Tesla [View article]
    Elon Musk has followers up to the point of comparing it to a cult. I've seen a lot of BS coming from him. Come down to earth and read some of the facts.

  • Optimistic But Cautious With General Motors [View article]
    I for one, believe GM is the best company to invest in stocks today. Here we have a company that has the technical know-how who is now doing all the right moves. I know they went down the wrong road for decades, because of the bean counters dominating bottom line decisions . But, today the engineers are given a free hand and are coming out with world class new products.

    GM has many patents in the making, and I expect great new products coming out from them.

  • GM's 200-Mile Electric Car For $30,000: RIP Tesla [View article]
    I think you like to daydream with you head full of hatred for GM. I know you won't believe it, but GM now makes world class cars.

    If you think SpaceX did what they have done by themselves, think again. NASA is the one who gave all the technical aspect to Elon Musk. No company can come from no where and become experts on rocketry overnight like SpaceX has. Elon Musk would like you to believe that he is the genius behind this success. Don't believe that BS.

  • We Disagree With Buffett On This Stock [View article]
    I agree 100% with you. Ford has many hurdles before their aluminum truck can be called a success. First of all the use of aluminum will raise the price of the vehicle. Body repairs in particular means higher repair bills, higher insurance rates and the list can on and on. I for one will not buy a new truck that is so controversial. I think buyers will hold back like myself, and have a wait and see attitude. They are many buyers who still believe steel is the best choice.

    Also, aluminum parts glued and riveted together is something many auto body shops can not do w/o special equipment and expertize. Something else to consider, is the safety of aluminum. Recently a scary video has appeared on the Internet of a Ford aluminum truck literally melting to the ground. Aluminum melts at a much lower temperature so I think that's what happened in the video. Their small EcoBoost engine has to work harder than a V8 and runs very hot

    The link below shows the results. This truck burnt to the ground in twenty two minutes.

    I'm looking to buy a new truck and needless to say, it won't be a Ford. With the current GM trucks weighing less than the current Ford and with GM plans to use more high strength steel, the weigh differences will be negligible. But I wish Ford Good luck Ford for

  • Ford, General Motors, Others: Could An Overextended Debt Bubble Spell Trouble? [View article]
    Why they threw GM with Ford is beyond me. GM just got a 10 billion dollars low cost line of credit.

    Ford is the one who owes lots of money. I don't see a good future with Ford like I see with GM.

    Every new products GM comes out with is world class and keeps getting better and better. Take the new Corvette, Impala, Volt, Buicks, SUV's, and many more.

  • General Motors: A Risky Investment That Investors Should Avoid [View article]
    It looks like a Ford lover wrote this. I'll buy the GM stocks, which I did and plan to buy more, over Fords stocks. GM has a lot going with new products in the coming with many out there that are superior to the competition. At present take the new Colorado, these new mid size trucks have not reach the dealers and yet GM has nearly fifty thousand orders waiting to be filled.

    Fords new aluminum truck remains to be seen if it will be a success. I don't like the idea having a truck glued and riveted together. Most autobody repair shops are not equip to repair aluminum and chances are these trucks will have high insurance rates. GM is doing well in using Ford as a guinea pig and by using other methods to lower the weight.

    Ford is the only auto company that did not earn a profit last month. This nothing to brag about. So what's this article all about. Trying to boost Ford's sales?

    Too many to list all.

  • U.S. truck sales strong for GM in August [View news story]
    I'm not surprised! GM makes the best trucks and GM ads are getting better. For years and years, Ford always had better ads and it showed by the amount of sales. A company can have the best, but if you don't do a good job with ads, it will reflect in it's sales.

  • Tesla Gigafactory Is Underway: Cheap Energy Storage? [View article]
    I'm sure Panasonic is aware that it wouldn't take much for Tesla to fail. Being they are already already in the battery business and should Tesla fail, Panasonic could easily take over the whole battery facility to sell batteries in the USA rather then importing them. Most don't realize that Tesla has not had any real competition yet, is not diversified, and has not really shown a real profit.

  • Tesla May Have A Huge Unfunded Warranty Problem Due To Defective Drivetrains [View article]
    This problem won't affect the Tesla in any way, because Tesla is Teflon coated. People will buy them and the stock price will continue to climb. Don't you people know that?

    The hype that kept the Tesla car going is now slowing down. Elon Musk laughed at his competitors, but guess who will have the last laugh.

  • Tesla: I'm Not Interested In Barclays' Analysis, I'm Staying Bullish [View article]
    I'm an auto enthusiast and follow all major auto companies. What I think about Tesla won't matter to many, but my thoughts are that Tesla is a company that runs on hype. As for the Tesla car, I really think it's not a very innovative product as many claim. The skateboard design comes from GM and using thousands of laptop batteries to power the car is not what I call innovation. If Elon Musk think the big car companies are just going to sit back and be laugh as he did, he's in for a rude awakening. I suspect this company will come crashing down and find itself in a dire position. No way would I invest in the Tesla company. Good luck folks!
