Will GM's Massive Losses in Europe Continue?

As most General Motors  (NYSE: GM  ) shareholders know all too well, Europe has been one of the biggest drags on GM's share price over the last couple of years. Even as China continues to be a bright spot, and the General's U.S. results improve, Europe -- where GM has lost more than $17 billion since 1999 -- still worries Wall Street.

Those worries have started to ease a bit in recent months. GM was able to narrow its losses last quarter, and there are increasing signs that the company's restructuring effort -- just the latest in a long string of attempts to put GM Europe back into the black -- is finally bearing fruit. 

How will Europe impact GM's upcoming third-quarter report? In this video, Motley Fool contributor John Rosevear explains how GM is slowly but surely turning its European operation around, and at what shareholders should expect to hear when third-quarter results are released.
