Dear General Motors
I’m shopping for a car. I decided on the following priorities.
1. The new car must get great gas mileage.
2. I need some space. I’m changing jobs, and I think I’m going to be lugging large items, well not really big items, back and forth from a few states. I have a Chevrolet Equinox and that space is fine for me.
3. I want an American made car; preferably General Motors. I believe the United States has the technology and the ability to overcome our energy crisis. So I’ve chosen to be faithful and buy an American made car.
4. I’d like four wheel or all wheel drive, so I can travel in the snow. I live in the north east and have tried the front wheel vehicles, they just aren’t that good in the snow. I’ll settle if I have to for a front wheel vehicle but it would have to have some sort of assistance so I can get up my driveway!
I can’t seem to find a vehicle that gets more than 23 miles to the gallon on the highway. I’ve checked out the Saturn Vue, and it’s coming along, especially the Green Line, but I can’t seem to find another vehicle that’s worth spending the money on and it’s not all wheel drive. I looked at the Ford Escape but they haven’t kept up with design, I just don’t think they’ll be good resellers. Designs are already changing and that version will be really old by the time I sell.
So Dear General Motors, are you coming out with anything that will wow the world? I’ll wait for the right car, but are you working on this? Or am I going to have to buy a car made in another country?
