As you're probably aware, the United States auto industry is in dire need of help getting through these tough economic times. There's a lot of speculation about the financial and economic impact on the U.S. if any of the "Big 3" automakers were to collapse. As a result of all the hearsay, there's a lot of misinformation being perpetuated that's causing a lot of confusion about the situation. To help set the record straight, GM has put together a video (you can watch it below) showing the impact that our auto industry has on the U.S. economy in terms of growth, jobs, health care benefits, government tax loss and the well-being of other large industries. In addition, Saturn General Manager Jill Lajdziak wrote last week on her ImSaturn blog that "GM has created a website to help answer common questions, detail the facts and figures of how much is at stake here, and dispel some of the myths."

The company is encouraging folks to visit the site, GM Facts and Fiction, to learn more about the issues and to write their member of Congress to support the auto industry. The impact is far-reaching.

On Friday, May 15th, Saturn of Tallahassee, co-owned by former Detroit Piston player Bob Sura, filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court of Florida against General Motors. According to the lawsuit, GM's decision to sell Saturn has both robbed the dealership of sales and violated their franchise agreement. Sales at Saturn of Tallahassee have dropped drastically over the past months. Their first quarter sales plunged 72 percent from just a year ago.
