A quote from GM's VP of Sales, Service, and Marketing, Mark LaNeve:
“‘The chapter is over,' he told me, acknowledging the obvious: Toyota, Honda and Nissan combined sell more vehicles to American consumers than GM does. ‘Japan Inc. passed us up. It's old news. Our mindset is — we've got to fight back.
‘For us, what's the next chapter we write? My team's (attitude isn't) ‘GM's the leader, GM's the leader.' That's (crap). We're the underdog.'”
