    GM may exit Korea = killing off the Spark?

    Reports are going around that GM is on a cost-cutting mission that may include leaving Korea.

    Considering that's where the Spark is made...

    But itís made by GM Korea, and if GM pulls out of the country, we may lose our small car friend forever. Or, at least, until you buy it off a dealerís pre-owned lot.

    With as much as OEMs are axing sedans and other cars it would be no surprise to me.
    Custom Mirage products: Cruise control kit, Glove box light, MAF sensor housing

    Each competing small car that gets axed does mean a potential Mirage sale, so Goodbye Spark, I never warmed to your harsh ride, crappy gas mileage and cheap looking and weird instrument pod.
    Zero, my 2014 ES Plus gone but not forgotten. We're driving the Beetle of the 21st century

    The latest news seems to suggest that GM may have overstated their intentions in order to scare the S. Korean government into a bail-out, and the remaining unions/workers into being more cooperative.

    The Cost of Saving GM Korea? $2.8 billion, Report Claims
