Automotive News: General Motors Can Spin Saturn into a Success, Via Opel

Richard Truett from Automotive News: There's a very happy ending available for Saturn dealers that General Motors brass should be seriously discussing: Handing the keys to the Saturn brand to GM's German affiliate, Opel.

So, the obvious and best thing for GM to do is merge Saturn and Opel. Tomorrow and Friday, Saturn's Franchise Operations Team, consisting of eight dealers, will be in Detroit to discuss Saturn's future with GM brass. This would be an excellent time for them to lobby for the Opel option.
