Re: Will Your Next New Car be a General Motors Vehicle?

It's clear that GM isn't interested in my business, so No I won't consider a GM product. I wish them luck, but my business will go elsewhere.

I can't quite say that all hope is gone, but hope is definitely fading............ but, wouldn't it be cool if the dealers were able to spin Saturn off of GM and make it successful. One could almost...

Re: LaNeve: "If We Just Wanted to Shut it Down, We Could Have Announced That"

I'm coming to the conclusion that the management team at GM is using voodoo economics, either that or the crystal ball they use has too much algae in it to see clearly. I understand Cadillac and...

Re: Lutz Offers Insight on Saturn, Other GM Brands

"It's got to be soon, because we have to get rid of things that aren't paying for themselves."

Hmmm. GM could start by laying off Lutz. His value to the company is questionable at best.

Re: Video: Senator Corker's Enthusiastic Tour Through GM's Saturn Plant in 2007

But it's OK for your tax dollars to go to VW. What do you think government incentives are magic? Incentives are just another way of transferring money from Government to Private Industry. Before...

Re: Saturn Retailers May Buy the Brand from GM

Technically GM could sells shares of Saturn Corporation to the dealers as Saturn is setup as a corporation that GM owns the all shares of so logistically it is possible. However, unless GM retains...

Re: Anger Grips Spring Hill Auto Workers

Tax incentives and loans are the same thing, a transfer of taxpayer money to a private entity. Either way, the government is hoping to generate future tax revenue through an investment. That is the...

Re: Anger Grips Spring Hill Auto Workers

It's still a transfer of funds from a government to a private entity. At the end of the day the government is making an investment into the private sector whether through tax incentives or interest...

Re: Report: Auto Loans Could Come by Friday

So Paulson doesn't want to give the automakers a loan until he's made sure his cronies at AIG don't need more.

Re: Breaking News: Auto Industry Bailout Plan Dies in the Senate

So you're not going to collect Social Security when you turn 65 because if you do you're nothing but a hypocrite for taking a government handout after this rant.

Re: Opinion: Make Saturn a Technology Leader

Seems logical to me. It is still incredible that GM sees Buick as a core brand when it sells fewer cars than Saturn. Yes, GM sells Holdens in China as Buicks and they are popular but in the US it...

Re: Anger Grips Spring Hill Auto Workers

Re: Lutz: GM needs fewer brands, more marketing

Exactly. I'm definitely not going to switch to a Chevy. Why go back to bad service, poor sales experience, and crooked sales techniques at my local chevy dealer. Nope. If Saturn is gone I'm done...

Re: really scary friday news coming

That's the whole problem with Pontiac, it is not selling to consumers. From what I've read Saturn actually sells more cars to consumers than Pontiac does.

Guess we'll find out later this week.
