We all know that Toyota are having a few issues with their vehicles, which has resulted in over 8 million of them being recalled. General Motors have had their own hassles but smelt blood and went after the Japanese automakers customers – by offering incentives to them.
Both Toyota and Lexus owners were targeted in this campaign – but the automaker has now launched an attack on GM, saying that the incentives was used at the expense of the taxpayer. The reason is simple – the U.S. government owns a 60 percent stake in General Motors. So if you think about it, you have not saved money buying a new GM vehicle – you already paid for it out of your taxes.
According to Autoblog, Toyota states that GM has been reckless, but there is no proof to back this up. We know that the American government own a majority stake in the Detroit auto company, but they are still allowed to run as an autonomously.
Do you agree that GM should be offering these incentives?
