    Well cause the Indian government won't help them for sure Its one thing to save Tata and its another to save Jaguar which is still as green as British even though its already owned by Indians. Jaguar is still associated with Britain and will not serve the Indian's at all by bailing it out...

    There is simply too many car manufacturers making too many cars with very few buyers that can actually afford them.

    yes, there's too much inventory now

    cars arent leaving showrooms fast enough

    and new cars from the manufacturers are continuously delivered to the dealers

    --

    the carmakers are too big (not nimble enough) to quickly adjust to fast changing market conditions

    their factories keep producing cars even as the credit market deteriorated

    credit is so tight, customers can't get car loans

    so here we are

    di pa kasi masyado na-affect ng crisis ang Pinas

    madali parin ma-approve ang car loan dito

    madami parin nakakabili ng new car

    so there's no reason why our local car dealers should offer big discounts

    just wait... sa 2009

    GM, Chrysler May Get U.S. Loans to Survive to March
    http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?p...d=aGHdHOHwvZWo
    Dec. 19 (Bloomberg) -- General Motors Corp. and Chrysler LLC would get U.S. loans to stay afloat until March under a Bush administration rescue plan that may be unveiled as soon as today, people familiar with the talks said.

    The government could take back the money should the automakers not comply with federal restrictions as a condition of receiving the funds, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the discussions are private. The plan isn’t final and may change, the people said.

    Bush considering 'orderly' auto bankruptcy
    http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/...uW1jQD955CUMO1
    WASHINGTON (AP) — The Bush administration is looking at "orderly" bankruptcy as a possible way to deal with the desperately ailing U.S. auto industry, the White House said Thursday as carmakers readied more plant closings and a half million Americans filed new jobless claims.

    With General Motors, Chrysler and the rest of Detroit anxiously holding its breath and waiting for a federal rescue, White House press secretary Dana Perino said, "There's an orderly way to do bankruptcies that provides for more of a soft landing. I think that's what we would be talking about."

    I don't find it scary at all. I still believe that bankruptcy is a true viable alternative. Painful in the short run but the right thing to do for the long run. But I do support a government controlled bankruptcy para hindi magulo.

    I wonder what % of Pinoy car buyers buy in cash and in financing? I'm sure madami ang financing pero palagay ko mas mataas by far ang % ng cash buyers sa Pinas kesa sa USA.

GM in trouble
