I will never buy new. No point. I got my 07 Cobalt LS sedan in June of 07 w/ 12k miles on the odometer for a great price. Couldn't be happier.
I don't think the bailout or anything the government does will really effect GM so severely that they don't survive or become powerless piles. They'll turn around soon enough. Once they do and start paying back what they owe, they'll do just fine. Trimming the fat is the first step to getting back on their feet.
It will take time, but they'll thrive again. If they've come this close to losing things, what do you suppose they're thinking about? "How can we prevent this from happening again?" So hopefully they'll listen to what consumers want and study Toyota and Honda and the others more closely. I personally think their biggest downfall was the benefits they gave their employees and retired employees. Health care is the most expensive thing for them to play with. I'm glad they pay their employees well, but they don't need to have the best insurance out there too.
