Also: GM releases US sales figures monthly, broken down by brand & model. So you'll be able to see the first full month (Jan 2011) of Volt sales documented here in early February once they tally it up:

Wow, I have to say that's the worst piece of marketing I've ever seen. The only reason some folks are still loyal to GM is because of their US branding. Whoever the marketing genius who put that slide together has plain lost their marbles.

You got it all wrong. China buys our debt to fund our government, but then the Federal Reserve just makes more money to pay them back so we don't have to pay taxes. Sure, it devalues every dollar in circulation, but we call that inflation, not taxes, so it makes us feel better.

Yup. As another 'murrican I am hoping for the Chevy Cruze to succeed. But I think I can also see it's Korean design influence. I wouldn't even call us money handlers.

I was just clarifying that I am painfully aware of how much we are borrowing and from whom.
