Survey: Automakers' management most to blame for problems

Share this article:

Nearly 80% — 78.8% — of Americans say management is somewhat or very responsible for the problems facing Detroit automakers, according to BigResearch's December American Pulse Survey.

Among the 4,117 surveyed online, 63.7% say the same about unions, while 57.7% also cite uncertainty of the economy as a contributor.

Nearly 60% – 59.1% – say the United Auto Workers union should be prepared to offer givebacks/concessions on top of the government bailout.

And, about half of Americans are just as likely to consider a Ford, GM or Chrysler as they were prior to the problems: 53.4% said their feelings are about the same, while 21.7% said they were less likely to consider buying from one of the three automakers, and 6.5% said they are more likely.
