Lets keep the thread ON-TOPIC of the thread. The politics thread is only a skip away.

I'm of the belief that if GM goes out of business, it will be bad for EVERYBODY. Nobody knows exactly whose suppliers are connected to whom exactly. I remember reading 2yrs ago that this new CTS has a lot of interior bits that use the same supplier as Mercedes. GM and BMW shared tranny bits at one time didnt they? I'm not sure if thats the case. BMW manufacturers a few cars in the United States. If GM dies, plenty of suppliers will die. It will put a strain on the remaining ones and will drive the price up for everybody. If I were BMW, I would not want them ''going away."
