Chevy is as iconic as an American car brand comes, but that hasn't helped sell cars in Europe.
A just-released report from the U.S. Treasury Department shows that the auto bailout continues to be a win-lose for General Motors versus taxpayers: While GM won billions, taxpayers have still lost big time.

Even as the White House insisted that the U.S. has made great strides in the war against terrorism under President Obama, the president's spokesman acknowledged Monday that officials cannot rule out the possibility that the latest terrorist plot apparently discussed between top al Qaeda operatives could jeopardize the U.S. homeland.
If it was good enough for General Motors, it's good enough for Detroit. That's the message Steve Rattner, who was President Obama's automobile-bailout czar, is peddling as a television talking head and op-ed essayist for The Wall Street Journal.
Longtime Hendrick Motorsports executive Doug Duchardt has been promoted to the newly created position of executive vice president and general manager.
Franklin D. Roosevelt called America to arms on the eve of war as "the arsenal of democracy," and he was talking mostly about Detroit. Its factories built the tanks, trucks and weapons that won World War II.
President Obama credited himself during his re-election campaign for rescuing Detroit's auto industry, but the White House said Thursday that he has no immediate plans to save the city itself from bankruptcy.
