Jerry York: Saab, Hummer good for GM after all

Tracinda's Jerry York appears to have changed his tune about what General Motors needs to do in order to get back on track, according to Bob Lutz. Kirk Kerkorian's right-hand man made headlines in January, calling for GM to axe Saab and possibly HUMMER to focus on the automaker's core brands... but now, Lutz says, York acknowledges that he spoke too soon.

 "Jerry made all those comments before he joined the board," Lutz said. "He realizes that it was a suggestion he wouldn't have made if he knew all the facts."

So... has York taken too many sips from the General's watercooler, or simply realized the error of his ways? Have your say in 'comments.'
