What critics don't understand is that the best thing GM has is its dealer force. You kill the dealers if you kill such well-entrenched nameplates as Pontiac and Buick, and you kill GM. It's that's simple.Read the whole thing, it is a good analysis of GM's bad position. However, Flint does not have any advice for GM on what to do, other than to keep moving towards a rear wheel drive platform.
What will the dealers sell if GM keeps losing market share? Won't the dealers get hammered either way?
