Agreed - although one could point out the 4% reduction in sales from 2005 to 2006 as a bad thing (which to an extent it is), GM made a very concious effort to walk away from fleet sales, and that 4% drop represents mostly that walking away from those sales. Vehicles like the Impala and Tahoe are selling better than in 2005, the G6 is way outselling the Grand Am it replaced, the HHR is selling vastly better than the pundits said it would, and if the Aura is indications of things to come, along with the Acadia, then the up and coming 2008 and 2009 models should continue to move the needle in the right direction.

As I noted earlier, the Aura is being rated at holding 50% of its value at the three year mark by the auto leasing folks, that is positvely in the Japanese guys territory, and more impressive for a first model year vehicle.

Overall I think GM has a solid recovery year, and the real question is, and we'll find out very soon (tomorrow I think???) on how 4Q06 went for the General.
