Its 9 pm and I get this tweet from Matt Watson of VIN Solutions.

“Saving Chevrolet Means Sending ‘Chevy’ to Dump

When I clicked the link and started reading the article, I found myself saying “WHAT!” There are no words to describe the level of ridiculous here. GM doesn’t have a brand recognition problem. GM has a business focus and a customer understanding problem. I can’t believe that someone spent money at GM for some Einstein to come up with this ridiculous plan to stop using the term “Chevy”.

GM focus on building on good products, focus on connecting with customers and with your dealer body quit all this non-sense that your brand is broken, it’s NOT!

What is broken at GM is it’s trust with the dealer body. Their lack of new and quality product and their complete disconnect from the consumer. Fix those things GM and leave Chevy the hell alone.

That’s my opinion what say you?

Yes Keith I am afraid you may be right. GM really needs to focus on its business and leave the dealer body to do what it does best...sell and service vehicles!

Sounds like the ridiculous GM SFE guys have moved to the marketing dept....

The marketing people at GM are without a strategy and now they are just throwing things against the wall.

The best know brands in the world have some sort of nick name, this notion of brand consistency is a crock.

Thanks for the comment Phil

My favorite part of that was the reference to Coke rather than Coca Cola. You would think for their example of why not go by nicknames that they would've at least chosen a company that didn't abbreviate it's name. Instead they referenced one of the most popular nicknames in the country besides Chevy.

GM has already retracted the statement , calling it a "JOKE!".

The only Joke here is GM sheer lack of understanding how fix their business.
