http://www.forbes.com/sites/louiswoodhill/2012/08/15/general-motors-is-headed-for-bankruptcy-again/ I don't think the writer makes a compelling case for it happening anytime soon, but he does site a product failure in a key car market where Chevy at least seems to be going the wrong direction. I can vouch for the new Passat being a good car having helped a friend buy one. I was really impressed with the interior room and what you get for the $, although the 2.5L 5 cyl isn't much on power or mileage. Likewise he talks about the GM CEO as a bit of an auto industry newbie, but you could say the say thing about for former Boeing guy more at Ford a while back and now he's seen as a genius. All things considered, they need to come up with better products, especially to compete with the Koreans which seem to be the dominant force in their price range. Who would have ever expected the Koreans to be the dominant car maker in the market segment that GM owned for years. Things change I guess..
