would it be so bad if fiat bought gm europe?
So the jokes went years ago, if you saw a two week old Fiat with no rust, you must have bneen sniffing glue. And true, their build quality may still not be absolute tip top but look at what happened when Audi took hold of the reins at Lambourghini. This marque retained its flair for style over function, but in the background there was that Germanic attention to detail that stipulated that when you turn on the aircon, you cool down. And when you press the middle pedal, you slow down. So if such a marriage between the Germans and Italians works so well there, why can't this be a success? On the 'down to earth' board, the Opel Corsa and Fiat Punto have been selling like hot cakes, and both are based on the same platform so wheels are already in motion methinks.
