Doubtful in this economy. Unemployment cliams up again, funny how those numbers were delayed until after the election like Gen Petraius' little escapade. The porch monket in the white house - hear no evil, see no evil...

U.S Auto Industry Headed to a Dazzling Potential – F, GM, TTM, LOL, ABC, XYZ, WTH! If the US automakers can pull this off, then good for them BUT 'Coming out of the closet' Sneeky's lousy, smoke and mirrors, lack of jobs, dog and pony show and in the crapper economy, the jobs are Not here. Sneeky's economy is not improving but continues to hurt the population and the job numbers continue to be down! Too many foreign wars and giving away of hard earned US Taxpayer money to other countries. Sneeky's mishandling of the US government, huge federal government debt (and growing) and the most important item: the 'idiot sheep' that voted this obomination back into office.
My current vehicle was paid off many years ago and I don't need any car payments now! I will drive my current vehicle into the ground before buying anything new, used, EV, Inbred, diesel, hydrogen, alternative fuel, CNG, concept and certainly NOT a Prius, Tesla, Leaf, Volt or an NYC/Sandy Special 'exploding submarine' Fiskar Karma Inbred!
Whatever the size or shape of the vehicle, vehicle manufactures Produce and the population ‘Drives’ vehicles with high MPG, are very safe, reliable, have a ‘reasonable’ cost and a good ‘value’ for the money.
The price of fuel at the pump is too high!

MidNJ;
As a matter of fact GM did go bankrupt, just the Government got involved to save the unions.
If they would have been allowed to follow regular bankruptcy rules they would be stronger today.

So when will we get our money back from the auto companies that were helped. Nobody at these companies should be receiving bonuses while they still owe us money.
