Renny Reynolds
There was a 1950 Chevy convertible that got a bit trashed because people climbed in and burned the seats. So we ended up having to pay for new seats. But the party was wild.feedback

Jean-Philippe Peugeot

This will allow the group to conquer the rest of the world step by step. This remains an important goal for PSA. Our family thought about getting closer to Opel even before the agreement with General Motors.feedback

Donald J. Trump

We're going to stop the jobs from leaving our country. It's not going to happen anymore, folks. Already, we're seeing jobs coming back. Since my election … just today, breaking news, General Motors announced that they're adding or keeping 900 jobs right here in Michigan.feedback

Misty Guinn

Within the benefits world, the Cadillac Tax has been some kind of mythical creature that may or may not happen. I feel that we already made strides, to reduce the value of our plans.feedback

Jim Jordan

Keep the Cadillac tax in place? Keep Medicaid in place until 2020? We didn't have Medicaid expansion in the bill we sent to President Obama, but we have it in the one we send to President Trump? That makes no sense to me.feedback

Matthias Mueller - Volkswagen

We are actually quite confident when it comes to the future despite this new reality (of a merger between PSA Group and General Motors' Opel).feedback

Jim Cramer

I'm actually surprised [General Motors] got money from that. General Motors is so much better without this. We have too many plants in Europe, but there's nothing we can do about it.feedback

Bill Selesky - Argus Research

The history behind GM has always been slow to respond to anything. Mary Barra is saying we are going to be more proactive.feedback

Mark Hallenbeck

In the conflict between getting you there fast versus the neighbors who are upset about drive-through traffic, Waze' business is with the drivers – because if you're not getting value you'll go use Apple Maps or TomTom. In 1953, your Chevy made a lot of noise and it gave you physical cues to tell you you were driving fast. Now in a modern car, there's good sound deadening and you get no auditory or physical sense of how fast you're going.feedback

Mary Barra - General Motors

This was a difficult decision for General Motors but we are united in belief that it is the right one.feedback

Len McCluskey - Unite

This has obviously been a very difficult time for the workforce…Now that General Motors has disposed of its UK sites, our focus switches to working with the new owners to persuade them of the evident merits of our plants and this excellent, loyal workforce. I am determined that we can convince the new boss, Mr Tavares, that it makes sense for him to continue to build in Britain. Our plants are the most productive in the European operation, the brand is strong here, the market for the products is here, so the cars must be made here.feedback

Dan Ammann - General Motors

By immediately improving General Motors' overall business profile, the transaction will enable us to increase our returns to shareholders. Just as importantly, we will be able to more sharply focus our time and resources on higher-growth, higher-return investments in our core automotive business and in new technologies that are transforming our industry.feedback

Greg Clark

We will continue to engage and work with PSA in the weeks and months ahead to ensure these assurances are kept and will build on the success of both sites for the long term. The prime minister and I have been in close contact with the PSA Group and General Motors and they have been clear this deal is an opportunity to grow the Vauxhall brand, building on their existing strengths and commitments.feedback

Mary Barra - General Motors

This was a difficult decision for General Motors. But we are unified in our belief that it is the right one.feedback

Carlos Tavares - PSA Peugeot Citroën

We're confident that the Opel-Vauxhall turnaround will significantly accelerate with our support. General Motors doesn't have to be relieved. They can be proud of giving Opel-Vauxhall a better future. Our planning teams are already working on that. This may look to you a little bit romantic.feedback

Len McCluskey - Unite

I have sought and have received urgent assurances from the PSA Group and General Motors as to their intentions towards the pensions of the UK workforce.feedback

Len McCluskey - Unite

Over the weekend, the chief executives of both General Motors and the PSA Group have spoken to me to outline their plans. Unite will ensure that these are communicated to our members at the earliest opportunity so that we can end this nerve-wracking period for these loyal workers, and move forward on how to safeguard our sites. So while initial discussions with the PSA Group have been relatively positive, our priority now is to ensure a long-term future for our plants and the tens of thousands of workers depending on them.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Since my election, Ford, Fiat-Chrysler, General Motors, Sprint, Softbank, Lockheed, Intel, Walmart and many others have announced that they will invest billions of dollars in the United States and will create tens of thousands of new American jobs. Obamacare is collapsing... imploding Obamacare disaster.feedback

Donald J. Trump

The time for small thinking is over. According to the National Academy of Sciences, our current immigration system costs America's taxpayers many billions of dollars a year. Since my election, Ford, Fiat-Chrysler, General Motors, Sprint, Softbank, Lockheed, Intel, Walmart and many others have announced that they will invest billions of dollars in the United States and will create tens of thousands of new American jobs. Ninety-four million Americans are out of the labor force.feedback

George Galliers

General Motors have not made money in Europe for many years, it's a drain on free cash flow and with the European (car) sales above 15 million (units) now you'd argue we're at least three-quarters of the way through the cycle… if you're not making money (now) then will you ever? We like the deal, particularly from General Motors' perspective.feedback

Bob Nardelli

Washington better catch up to this business-oriented, business-minded president. When he finally gets a full Cabinet in place, hopefully we see the activation of those executive orders come to fruition. It's easier ... to bring some of the componentry back to the U.S. It is a major undertaking to re-establish a factory. In the case of General Motors, they produce more cars in China than in the U.S. because that's where the market is. So I think we have to be reasonable in our policies, and we have to be thoughtful about the execution of those ... as we move forward.feedback

Peter Navarro

Germany – one of the worst actors in the international environment, when it comes to the [value-added tax] because what they've done is strategically raise that to 20 percent. Whereas Japan is much lower. They're sticking it to us. When they send us a BMW or Porsche into our markets, they basically rebate the VAT to those manufacturers like a subsidy and if we try to sell them a Ford or a Chevy, they slap on the VAT. That's not going to happen under a Trump administration.feedback

Vicente Fox

You produce cars in the United States at such a high price and such a mediocre, mediocre quality that you cannot compete, you cannot compete manufacturing in the United States. That's why Ford, Chrysler, General Motors went broke.feedback

Andrew M. Calamari - Securities and Exchange Commission

Internal accounting controls at General Motors failed to consider relevant accounting guidance when it came to considering disclosure of potential vehicle recalls. Proper consideration of loss contingencies and assessment of the need for disclosure are vital to the preparation of financial statements that conform with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles.feedback

Michael Harley - Kelley Blue Book

Retaining and growing jobs in the U.S. is a political hot button right now. While the decision to create the new positions and opportunities was likely made months ago, the timing of the announcement shows General Motors is more than willing to play the new administration's publicity game – a sure bet to hear mention of GM in Friday's inaugural address.feedback

Tim Kuniskis - Fiat Chrysler Automobiles

It's really a testament to the fact that despite all the new alternatives in the marketplace in the last 20 years there's still no better alternative for a family vehicle than the minivan.feedback

Mark Reuss

The market is taking notice of this car, the first to offer a no-excuses reason to drive an electric vehicle.feedback

John W. Mendel - American Honda Motor

We've never really been known as a truck company. It's nice to get to get this sort of recognition going up against some very tough competition.feedback

Tim Kuniskis - Fiat Chrysler Automobiles

We love minivans -- we sold a quarter-million minivans this last year that just ended. Our designers just did an amazing job of taking something that has to be very functional and making it look very beautiful at the same time.feedback

Mark Reuss

We didn't have all the answers when we started the program -- in terms of how far we were going to get range-wise, how light are we going to get the car and ... sell price. We hit on all cylinders on this, so to speak, even though there's not any in the car.feedback

Eneuri Acosta

This is not ride-sharing. Customers get to keep a car at all times.feedback

Blair Holmes

We don't want to run any risk that someone looks at the health insurance tax or the Cadillac tax and says, those don't take effect until 2018 and 2020, we can deal them later.feedback

Donald J. Trump

General Motors is sending Mexican made model of Chevy Cruze to US car dealers – tax free across border. Make in USA or pay big border tax!feedback

Sean Spicer

In this case, the tweet was specific to General Motors. But I think you've seen an overall philosophy during the campaign and since he was elected to stand up for American workers and make sure that American companies don't benefit from moving their companies overseas and leaving American workers behind.feedback

Dennis Williams

I'm prepared to sit down and talk to him about trade. NAFTA is a problem. I think his position on trade is right on.feedback

Michael Crane

In '70's New Jersey, the car was still a powerful image. That summer I bought my first set of wheels for two thousand dollars. It was a '57 Chevy with dual, four-barrel carbs, a Hurst on the floor and orange flames spread across the hood.feedback

Michael Crane

I am selling the whole collection. My love affair with Bruce has become more real. I'm moving on to some bigger projects. I started a non-profit and I am raising money for orphans and widows now, and it's kind of where my life has taken me.feedback

Tim Prichard

You needed $87 billion – or that's what the CBO projected that you'd have from the Cadillac Tax to pay for many of the provisions in the health-care plan. Now with Congressman Ryan's plan, it is essentially a way of reducing the tax level and getting more revenue.feedback

Jay Leno

I would get a couple hundred bucks every time. And before long I had $3,000 and bought my [1984] Chevy Cavalier.feedback

Michael Trilli - Aite Group

The employer Cadillac tax could be abolished immediately and will propel HSAs. HSAs can be a bipartisan force that drives better outcomes for all.feedback

Johan De Nysschen - Cadillac

I think that in the future there may indeed be a market for autonomous driving enabled vehicles that provide transportation from A to B, but that's not the market Cadillac is in. We are a luxury brand we want to offer all of the benefits but we want to do it in an emotionally engaging way.feedback

Johan De Nysschen - Cadillac

That is not quite Cadillac. But it doesn't mean that we can't cultivate a product and a way of owning a Cadillac that allows people who want to move from A to B in the luxury of a Cadillac, has all the safety and connectivity benefits … That is some of the exciting things that our teams area working on.feedback

Vince Cable - Stansted Airport

One of the key factors in keeping General Motors here was the confidence they had that we would stay within the European single market and the customs union.feedback

Jake Fisher - General Motors

If you look at the top three it is Toyotta and Lexus, no surprise there. But above any of the Japanese automakers – above Honda, above Subaru – we see Buick, and that is a big deal.feedback

Jake Fisher - General Motors

The Model X out of the gate is very problematic. A lot of the problems have to do with the complex doors. The falcon wing doors are kind of an accident waiting to happen.feedback

John Zimmer - Lyft

Over the last couple of years as we have been our business, we have been talking to all of the major auto companies. And when we spoke to General Motors at the end of last year, they agreed with our vision in that consumers will move towards more of a Netflix or Spotify model where they buy a subscription for transportation.feedback

Denise Hammond - Unifor

Fiat Chrysler has failed to make an offer that makes the economic pattern that we secured with General Motors and it has not made an investment commitment. Unifor is fighting for the pattern and absolutely nothing less.feedback

Caroline Moassessi

I know they're a business trying to make as much as they can, like Ford, Chevy, Macy's. I'm not naive about that, whatsoever.feedback

Tracy Watts

That's a tall order, but it feels like we're at a little bit of inflection point.feedback

Beth Umland

Employers had been needing to not just slow cost growth, but in some cases, lower their actual costs, because the excise tax kicks in at a certain dollar amount.feedback

Beth Umland

That's a smaller gap than we've seen in the last 10 years.feedback

Julie Stone

Employers will focus primarily on changing coverage provisions for costly services.feedback

Tracy Watts

I think many employers are at the end of what they're comfortable with, in terms of shifting cost to employees.feedback

Alan Batey

The Chevy Bolt is a game changer for the electric car segment.feedback

Jerry Dias - Unifor

We're going to have one heck of a fight with General Motors if there's no solution for Oshawa. Our union has absolutely nothing to lose. I'm convinced that General Motors wants to close Oshawa, and we're not going to let them.feedback

Jan Moller

We were the dog that caught the Cadillac. It was unaffordable.feedback

Harold H. Shaw - FBI

For 23 years, the family of Mr. DiSarro has been awaiting news of his whereabouts. The thoughts and prayers of everyone in the FBI are with them during this difficult time. Our investigation will continue to pursue those responsible for Mr. DiSarro's death in an effort to bring them to justice.feedback

Donald J. Trump

I am fighting hard to bring jobs back to the United States. Many companies -- like Ford, General Motors, Nabisco, Carrier -- are moving production to Mexico. Drugs and illegal immigrants are also pouring across our border. This is bad for all Americans, regardless of their heritage.feedback

Johan De Nysschen - Cadillac

We think that people who are luxury consumers, people who are tech innovators, people who are from the fashion world, the creative spirits that make our cosmopolitan society so interesting all will find something of interest here.feedback

Paul Dietrich - Fairfax

We are so unsophisticated when we look at China. We saw from General Motors today that they are projecting bigger car sales next year ... I think you're going to be very, very surprised [with] Apple sales.feedback

Dan Ammann - General Motors

Obviously our business today, our core business at General Motors, is strongest outside of the urban centers. We look at this opportunity to really disrupt urban mobility through this strategic alliance with Lyft.feedback

Ahmed Senbel

Uber's stock market valuation is now more than that of General Motors. So they should pay to France what they owe in taxes and social charges to maintain our country's social and economic system. We are not against the drivers. We are against this American transport system that doesn't respect French law.feedback

Norbert Walter - Deutsche Bank

The problem with General Motors and Opel is the international factor, which means it's necessary to make sure that state aid – German taxpayers money – isn't transferred to a bankrupt GM, which wouldn't help either Opel workers or European car buyers.feedback

John Smith - General Motors

General Motors is confident, that the Magna-Sberbank solution really represents the best solution to provide for a sustainable future for the Opel and Vauxhall brands.feedback

Klaus Franz - Opel

We know General Motors have plans that entail Eisenach and Bochum being closed down and for that, there will be no agreement among the workers, neither in Germany, nor in Europe.feedback

Mary Barra - General Motors

I've worked at General Motors for 33 years and I've always known it's a great company. The men and women of General Motors are so dedicated and I truly believe we have the best team on the field. So it's an honour for me to be able to lead this team.feedback

Klaus Franz - Opel

The work force is willing to make substantial contributions to the future of this company, but not if we should return to 100 percent control by General Motors.feedback

Frank-Walter Steinmeier

If General Motors goes into insolvency in the coming days, the lights cannot go out at Opel. We have to create conditions for an independent future at Opel.feedback

Angela Merkel

We need somebody here in Germany who feels committed to Opel and who gets the freedom from General Motors to negotiate in the name of Opel Europe.feedback

Luc van Grinsven

General Motors in America announced many months ago that they wanted to close many plants in Europe. So the most important question that we have now is: what is the future of Antwerp and the future for our colleagues in Europe?feedback

Angela Merkel

We think we should get the restructuring plan from Opel and General Motors within the next few days in order to discuss it with the different German states where Opel has factories. The economy minister has made the necessary preparations. We are aware of the worries the Opel workers have.feedback
