No problem knowing who is included when you use the word "we." Nobody but yourself.

BTW, GM does offer a service to car-free people - the opportunity to not be car-free.

For those who choose not to own a car, the front door at every GM showroom has easy exit to the street as well as entry, as well as prominent displays of the products being sold so that nobody should be confused about what is being offered.

Only a confused person walks into a GM showroom because he wants to be car-free.
