General Motors Corp. said Thursday it would stop advertising in the Los Angeles Times over disagreements with car reviews and other articles that have appeared in the newspaper.


The world's largest automaker said the move was "based on strongly voiced objections from our dealers in California about factual errors and misrepresentations in The Times editorial coverage," the Los Angeles Times reported Friday.


The newspaper, owned by Tribune Co., will review coverage that prompted the complaints, Times spokesman David Garcia said.


GM officials did not specify which articles the company found offensive.


A GM executive, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said Wednesday's review of the Pontiac G6 by Times automobile critic Dan Neil was particularly offensive, the newspaper reported.
