Detroit automakers getting their ass kicked by the Japanese for the last 30 years has a lot more to do with poor management that they will ever admit. Like the Raiders, Detroit has been on a downhill slide for decades.
Possibly. I have had only American cars my entire life. This whole thing is a damn shame. Manufacturing is what made this country great. Look at what we did in WWII. I don't think management is the only problem in our car industry, but it definitely is a big part of it.
