From AutoWeek: "All of our efforts will be to sell down our remaining 2009 inventory," Susan Docherty, GM's vice president of U.S. sales, said today at a press event. "We'll have a little bit of carryover of that into the first quarter of 2010, but the objective is to keep our inventory somewhere between 425,000 to 450,000 units." Docherty said she is confident that GM will clear out the 2009-model-year inventory by January. Meanwhile, the company likely will shutter its Pontiac and Saturn brands by the end of the first quarter, Docherty said. GM has only about 10,000 Pontiac vehicles left and 8,000 Saturns, she said. "We're actually winding down those products quicker than we had anticipated," he said.

How Many of You Put Bug Shields on the Front of Your Outlook?

I was curious how many of you put these on your SUV? I just installed a genuine GM bug shield, specifically made for the Saturn Outlook, and it looks very nice. I did have to drill two 1/16" holes in the underside of the hood for two screws, but the rest of it is held on by 3M two-sided tape. It was a very neat fit, and not very hard to install.
