GM Has Very Big Plans for Chevrolet

General Motors' (NYSE: GM  ) CEO Dan Akerson is pushing hard to turn GM into what it should have been all along: a unified, strong global automaker.

    They will never have to worry. I will never buy another GM product because of the TARP issue. I would prefer to pay my money to someone who doesn't steal from me!
