General Motors "Never Knew What to Do" with Saturn

Tags:

In an article about Saturn, NASDAQ reported that retailer Carl Galeana told the Detroit Free Press earlier this week that "GM has totally mismanaged this brand." He added, "if it's a failed brand, it's because GM never knew what to do with it." The site wrote that "one obstacle to GM simply selling Saturn is that the only likely buyers for Saturn would be an Indian or Chinese manufacturer because of the company's limited manufacturing facilities, which would set the stage for yet another competitor in the US." It goes on to say that "shutting the company down is said to be equally unattractive because of likely lawsuits from dealers."
