Well, this is new to me – Hummer apparently has been cut by General Motors. But I guess that’s not really the point of this post, even though it’s big news. There are major questions still on the table in regards to owners and dealers, with some dealers still hoping that GM will find another buyer for the brand name. Hummer currently has 153 dealerships, all of which that have their own dealer auto transport networks, and sixteen of those of those are stand-alone dealerships.
High gas prices is among the largest reason why GM has stopped production of all Hummer products, and frankly who can blame them? Those things are freaking gas-guzzlers of the highest caliber – try driving one through the streets of New York City or Miami, too! People think a lot like me when it comes to Hummer vehicles, and it shows: Hummer sales have dropped more than any other brand over the past two years, and GM has had plans on cutting the brand name since 2008. They had a deal going with Chinese manufacturer Tengzhong, though the Chinese government (in its infinite wisdom) didn’t approve the deal, and now owners are worried about replacement parts and resale values. GM, however, has said they will still honor warranties and service plans, though how long that will last remains to be seen.
So…wait…Hummer’s gone? Figures.
