A sage friend of mine explained one underlying problem with GM. Their budgeting process allocates funds to design and tooling, leaving the interior to the last. As a result the interiors of GM cars have been cheap and tawdry. The Volt, at $40,000 is not a cheap car, but it's interior is cheap and second rate. Corporate culture or lack of it is a pernicious problem. Take a look at the current descendants of Ma Bell. They have the same insufferable attitude of their ancestor. Merely shoveling money and green ideas into an old wine bottle will not fix the culture. And with the delicate skills of Washington bureaucrats, even less so. Thats the real problem with the Volt

Design and engineering departments are still non-union, but they are now being sent to China.

If there was any doubt from skeptics about the complicity of the Obama administration in creating and directing the “new” General Motors –a.k.a Government Motors- the latest ballyhoo regarding sales figures and the Chevy Volt should convince even the doubters.

GM: Aug. Volt sales best yet says the Detroit News.

GM Expects Volt Sales to Set Monthly Record says the normally sane Wall Street Journal.

Chevy Volt broke monthly sales record in August reports the Associated Press.

But like a lot of claims coming from Obama or one his corporate...
