    Default GM to remove ‘excellence’ mark from vehicles

    General Motors Co. will begin removing its "Mark of Excellence" logo from vehicles as the company places greater emphasis on its individual brands.

    I think they were a big waste anyway.

    I talked with Susan Docherty (The head of Buick and GMC) about this when I was in Detroit. It began about 36 months ago and I actually liked it overall, but I can see why it might not fit in the location that they put it.

    yeah, that's something that never should have been put on the cars in the first place. I still don't konw why they did that. I guess just to show ownership of a brand? I think it is a good idea anyway. The little badges always seemed out of place no matter where they put them on the vehicle.

    I beat GM to the punch and removed the little chiclets myself

    Yeah I never liked that on the vehicles either, but I do like the new chrome block lettering that is on the trucks. It's a lot better than the old black and grey emblems, and this change will also drop the cost of the vehicles probably by $5.00.

    BTW- I love the chiclets analogy, that made my day!
