  • This is worrying

    Just found out that Vauxhall have announced intentions to close thier plant at Luton. One of thier biggest (apparently).
    Obviously all car companies are struggling, but I didnt expect VX to be one of the first to show signs of finantial trouble.

                  just no money about atm and too many backlog of cars, the industry must be in free fall

                    Yeah it was a great Idea for Ford to release a new Fiesta that Fiesta owners can't afford.

                      The workers in Luton are on thier xmas holidays at the moment (my dad is one of them). I dont think even GM are that harsh to announce something like this while they aint even there!

                        There's nothing on the BBC or GM Europe News so am assuming it is just rumour unless someone has a link to a valid source?

                          Talking of the new fiesta. I was talking to someone on Sunday that has just got the 1.4 new style fiesta. He is only getting 20mpg out of it. Fords have told him that it will get better as it "runs in".

                            Tis getting bad, but the world can't live on credit forever, think of your parents or grandparents in the great depression, they had nothing compared what your average jo has these days, does kinda make you think. Its seeing Woolies closing down that makes me sad, always remember Christmas at Woolies in the early 70's, Hornby Train sets and Action Man and my heart set on a Raleigh chopper in the window
