Rumor of Buick being Dropped by GM

Heard on a local radio show this morning that a rumor is floating around that GM may drop the Buick line. Was wondering if anyone else had heard that and if they had more info on it? One way or another. Hope it' not true. But I could see it, the way GM keeps losing money.

by the way, read the date of the article - 2005 - this rumor has been around for years - but it may become more true as GM sales keep declining.

I did hear today GM may be selling off or re-thinking the Hummer brand. I just dropped my Acadia off for service today and it looks like they they just as many Hummers there as they did 6 months ago.

In the age of information, Ignorance is a choice!

It was just in the Wall Street Journal Online this afternoon on a write up of the GM shareholders meeting, they are doing a strategic study on the Hummer line that might lead to the sale of that unit.

Belongs in the off-topic or rumor mill section. Not here.

This would definitely be surprising. GM- like the other domestics- is losing money because of incredibly poor product planning with their short sighted focus on trucks and truck-based SUVs. Now that they're rectifying this they're looking to contract on of the few marks in their lineup that sells neither?

Re: Rumor of Buick being Dropped by GM

I doubt it will be Buick. Taken as a whole, Buick is profitable. It's also GM's biggest entry in China where it's considered a premium brand. Even GM wouldn't give up China's potential by killing Buick.

If GM kills another brand, it will be GMC or Pontiac.
