They should should just replace it with a ICE vehicle since it's apparent GM is not any good with new technology.

Stories for anybody who might be thinking, "General Motors couldn't be that bad." I've seen so many bad things in so many places in such a short amount of time. I am not the only one. The truth shall set us free!
It has never been a problem for me to do a bit of extra work, but in my case it's become an extra job, which maybe some new people should do. It is not normal to overload employees to this extent. We definitely need more people.
While I was fighting for everybody, you were fighting for the preservation of an inherently corrupt system. A system where people's lives mean less than unchecked hubris, selfish ignorance, and a general moral... — read more
