GM Continues to Struggle in Europe

General Motors (NYSE: GM  ) has lost billions -- $18 billion, to be exact -- on its troubled European operation since 1999. Its problems have been exacerbated by deep recessions in several European countries that have driven new-car sales to lows not seen in 20 years.
