20Their Bad Public Relations Image
GM just can’t seem to win when it comes to the general public. That’s been proven by the reactions to their layoffs while their executives still enjoy major perks. Of course, the fact that a few of these execs have also left indicates things aren’t so rosy for them. Then
there was the very ugly mess of accusations of discrimination at an Ohio plant that caused not just a lawsuit but a full investigation. That's not mentioning the long history of absolutely terrible cars the company has pushed on buyers for decades. It’s created a big perception problem for GM that it just can’t seem to overcome. For every good thing this company does, they pull off a huge mistake that lowers their standing and makes it hard to believe they can produce good cars.
