Now I don't want to be the bad guy and all but we have to face facts. Combined with the tough economic climate and a more competitive retail environment than ever, something's going to give.

Unfortunately, it will have to be an automaker.

Like any company that fails though, it takes a long road of bad decisions to drive that result. With that said, THINK about some automakers that have made poor decisions and have been paying for it. Now, compound that with poor sales, vehicles that don't meet customer expectations and anything else that can negatively impact a manufacturer.

We want to know: Who's obituary are we going to be writing in the next five years.

**And no, Saab is not a valid answer
