Hmmmm.....

I wonder what the USB on the 2010 Outlook does? Does it let you plug in a mouse or flight stick to drive the Outlook?

On the VUE they still don't offer the 6 speed auto with the ECOTEC, I'm surprised they still have the 3.5L V6 offering, and the 3.6L doesn't have direct injection.

Hard to get excited over the only change being a rear view camera...

It will be interesting to see how this mess works out.

Without the new hybrid system the Saturn Vue is now an 'also ran' in my book!!!

The whole 2010 GM lineup can be described as.... yawn. How do they hope to recapture any market share with such a dull, boring lineup? The only vehicles that look promising are the new Chev Equinox and GMC Terrain.

It's in GM's best interest NOT to give Saturn anything special that could pull sales away from their own divisions. It will be an uphill battle for the new owners to negotiate the better technology from GM now that they no longer have a vested interest.

SATURN has really drop all of my interest recently. SATURN has really lost the uniqueness, and now Pontiac is being dropped, and Saab & Hummer also might soon be gone. I hope SATURN really finds a new owner soon to drop the current line-up, and start something unique, because every since they started going behind GM, and rebadging everything they really lost me. I'm still trying to think weither I want to drop SATURN too, and drive another brand out of the GM line-up.

Look @ the new 2010 Opel Astra (Redesigned): Looks way better than the current model.

Looking at these models makes me wonder where the "different kind of car company" went. I miss the Saturn models of old. I do not like the new models at all. I really haven't since the SL's. Since they started making the L models and beyond the cars look just like all the others on the road. I like that you can tell the car is a Saturn from 100 feet down the road, that distinct front end, and headlights. I hope that the new owners give the brand that image again, and get some unique styles. Nevermind the 2010 models GM has slated, get rid of them (maybe keep the SKY and VUE) and start with scratch!!

I don't know if had received your answer but this allows you to control your Mp3 player directly through your radio. You may also download mp3s to a memory stick and access through the radio. DM Saturn Sales Manager
