Default GM doesn't need to learn from MTV to succeed, just make great cars

Article about GM looking to MTV for answers on how to get young people interested in GM and cars in general. I wave the BS flag. Build great cars and they will come.

Bring back Pontiac, and stop designing cars that are tired looking.

Seriously when cars from Buick look better than cars from Chevy, there'* a huge problem.

the buick "style" has always meant to appeal to an older buyer with the chrome and looks that remind you of older models. pontiac would have been the model that younger people want slick looks and state of the art tech. im still angry thats the way they went. they could make a pontiac like chevy but they dont have any sporty anything anymore thats affordable for normal folks. every chevy is too plain inside and out and has a bunch of cheap stick on chrome everywhere its no wonder people dont buy them.

I'm sorry, but I wouldn't drive the model of Buick you have if it was given to me. They just recently started looking good again. It'* only taken them from the 1980s to get something nice looking and fast again.

The last good car from Buick was the Grand National.

Yep, the GN-X was a beast too. I also loved just the T-type Buick. Same H-body design, but not a GN.
