Maybe I'm being too cynical, but think back to the EV-1 situation, GM took back a fleet of perfectly functioning, usable cars and simply crushed them, they didn't seem too woried about the financial loss that destroying perfectly good vehicles would put them in then....

what's to stop them from (thinking out loud here) contacting their dealer network and "requesting" that all unsold stock be transferred back to GM HQ, vehicles like the Outlook and Vue could, in theory, be switched to their Chevy/GMC/Buick clones with some minor grille/lights/bodywork changes, the Aura would need more extensive re-skinning to become a Malibu....

....or they could simply strip them for parts, and crush the remaining carcass

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
