General Motors Rolls The Dice

The company that knows a thing or two about receiving guarantees is now providing one of its own. With the ink barely dry on the congressional report highlighting the rather stark likelihood that the taxpayers' auto investment donation will yield anything other than a loss, the new GM has a plan that may end the discussion quickly, and for good. Starting Monday, GM is kicking off its 60-day "Satisfaction Guaranteed" promotion which will allow you to take a two month test drive and then, should you so desire, get 100% of your money back. So the company believes that people who put down a significant amount of money should have the option of seeing how their new asset performs before committing to it fully. If only the US taxpayer had been granted the same courtesy.
