Does that mean we'll finally get a right-hand-drive Corvette?

Just kidding

Utter nonsense

General Motors' strategic direction and business models are not shaped by YouTube producers. There is no truth to this whatsoever; China is not going to "take over" GM. The US government bailout of GM and Chrysler is one of the great success stories (thus far) of efforts to stop our country's slide into a depression.

China is in fact a very important market for GM...

For what it is worth - many of your "Genuine GM" parts are made in China now.

I damaged our 2007 Silverado and had to repaint the rear tailgate. In doing so, I bought new emblems from GM - the bowtie and the SILVERADO wording.

Yep - all made in China.

Also, if you look under an Acadia - or sister vehicle look close at the spare tire - in big bold print it says "Made in China"

I also recently bought some "Delco" relays and other electrics from my local GM dealer. Stamped on top - MADE IN CHINA. These parts visually looked exactly like the made in USA (yes they had that stamped on them) and made in Canada parts that I removed.

Exactly. This China paranoia is similar to the Japan paranoia that swept through the U.S. in the 1980's. As China becomes a free society, they will have to play by free society rules (which they don't have to play by right now), wages will increase, environmental concerns will have to be addressed, etc. All the sudden, all this cash will disappear.

The success of Chrysler, GM, their supply chains and the million attendant jobs are witness to my claims--as is the very existence of the C7. Doesn't it strike you as ironic that your denial of reality is posted in a forum that would very likely not exist without the bailout?

Uh, no...

China is NOT Japan and this is not the 1980's. The China population is four and a half that of the US and for the first time in China history, the majority lives in cities. Manufacturing is the highest growth industry in China. Manufacturing is a receding industry in the US. This is NOT a coincidence.

I've travelled to the same four locations in China four times in the last 6 years. The changes are astounding - difficult to believe even seeing them. Four lane roads / parkways travelled on the first trip that were nearly empty but for some small scooter/tractor type vehicles were clogged a year later and were doubled in width a year after that. Last trip they were widened again but full of traffic. Our drive took twice as long as in that first year.

Car dealerships were nearly non-existent in these areas on the first trip. They now line that same road similar to any city in the US.

It is still a communist government. Wages are designated by the government to be higher while conditions are improving and OT rules getting tighter. 80 hours / week was the norm 6 years ago, now more than 60 is illegal and enforcement is unpredictable with spotty corruption.

A citizen must apply for and receive a permit to move to another city, but the workers jump jobs as frequently as wages rise. A manager of a plant where a worker was killed in an unsafe situation, is taken by the government and not heard from again.

We closed our US manufacturing sites in 2003 and 2004 because they could not compete with the manufacturing costs in China and our customers demanded China pricing that they could get from our competitors with more China factories. This month we announced the closing of our European manufacturing site for the same reason. Our China footprint is five times what it was in 2003.

Don't misunderstand, I am not endorsing the Youtube comments.

However, this is not paranoia. This is the business trend in today's world.
