ARE GM RECALLS STARTING TO HURT SALES FOR GM DEALERS?

ARE GM RECALLS STARTING TO HURT SALES FOR GM DEALERS?*****************************************************************************

Initially the answer was NO it really didn't have any noticeable effect. BUT recently I've had a lot of dealers starting to tell me that the customers are beginning to defect because of the repeated bad news and new recalls almost daily. Personally, I think Mary Barra is doing a remarkably credible job of apologizing for the Jerks that put the company in this position. I hope she fires more of the "Old Guard" boobs that caused the problems. (I'd also like to see her fire the little British Boob) What Do You See Happening?

Even though I originally  posted this Blog nearly a Year Ago, nothing has changed and I'm starting to get a lot of conversation about it a year down the road... it's still a hot subject, BUT; the truth is Now it's all of the manufacturers from Takata Airbags putting honda and other japanese manufacturers on the defensive... to FCA and the list goes on...

It is not the actual recalls that is giving GM a bad name it's the news for making it a bigger than it is. The dealers I work with everyday are explaining everything to their customers and it is not stopping people from buying!

Is the real reason due to the lack of conversion and performance of the extra Cobalt spends?

 If the public reacts negatively to recalls it is a small price to pay compared to the alternative of not having them.
