Is there any reason anyone should buy a vehicle from this company ever again?

GM should not have been bailed out. It should have been allowed to go under, and maybe Tesla would become number one instead :)
GM claims to be reformed and even touts its Chevy Volt as proof. But how many chargers has GM built for them around the country?
If GM and Microsoft went under, it would be a great boon to the auto and computer businesses respectively.
