Re: 21 years old!

Mike NW, In four years, your Saturn will qualify for classic car status in many states, if not all of them.

Re: I think I may be leaving from Saturn ownership in 2019

So far as the Toyota is concerned, the Corolla may be the better proposition than the Yaris, as the former is a compact and the latter is a subcompact.

Both are good cars, but if 2NDSOUT is...

Re: XR gear ratios?

Final drive ratio: 2.77:1, same as the V6 powered Malibu LT. That is the standard that is provided directly from GM.

As this transmission is shared with Ford, there were many applications, from...

Re: I think I may be leaving from Saturn ownership in 2019

2NDSOUT, With all due respect, 2-5K would be a reasonable down payment on a new or late-model Chevy Cruze. Though you do not prefer to have a loan, interest rates are not going to stay low forever,...

Re: Saturn Goldmine

Four counted. And to think this was a two-minute news segment. The fifty second mark had two, but you'll miss the first Saturn (a white SC) if your attention is on the motorcycle cop pulling in...

Re: Will saturns ever shoot up in value

To be fair, that's the exception, not the rule. The low mileage (an odometer reading of 9125?) and near pristine condition didn't hurt.

Re: GM sells Opel to Peugeot (Opel Astra)

I'm old enough to remember Buick-Opel's first appearance in North America and the Isuzu connection as well.

Did not like the early '90s Pontiac LeMans at all. That was a disgrace to the name. ...

Re: GM sells Opel to Peugeot (Opel Astra)

GM's departure is Ford's gain. Ford hasn't left Europe. In fact, they brought the S550 Mustang over to complement the Ka/Fiesta/Focus/Mondeo in 2015.

All indications to me suggest that GM...

Re: GM sells Opel to Peugeot (Opel Astra)

An interesting theory. A potential European lineup is certain to exclude the Impala, Traverse and the full-sized SUVs/trucks. The Colorado might have to be certified for a 2.0L SIDI turbo Ecotec in...

Re: GM sells Opel to Peugeot (Opel Astra)

PSA was after Opel's electric technology in addition to increased market share in Europe; they are playing catch-up to the Renault/Nissan-Daimler alliance on both counts.

Re: Does GM really need two brands of trucks?

Indeed, "professional grade" advertising and the Denali sub-brand is what helps to differentiate a GMC from a Chevy given their similarities under the skin. Chevy could never get away with that kind...

Re: Former Spring Hill Saturn Plant to Build RHD GMC Acadia SUVs for Export to Austra

I thought Spring Hill already built the Cadillac XT5 crossover. Maybe GM decided on another assembly plant.

Re: If Saturn was still in business....

I don't see a place for Saturn in GM's new automotive order.

Chevy = volume
Buick/GMC = upgrade
Cadillac = premium

I still think GM should shrink to two brands, either Chevy/Buick-GMC...

Re: If Saturn was still in business....

The Captiva Sport looked similar to the Vue, but was not the Vue of the late aughts. The European Opel on which the Captiva Sport was based was restyled for 2010.

Chevy put the Captiva (2012-15)...

Re: General Motors to Build V8 Engines at the Former Saturn Plant in Spring Hill, Ten

Saw this on LLN. This is good news. The XT5 (current SRX) will also be made here, or at least that's what I had been hearing. I don't know if that is still the case.

Re: Gas price around the country?

2.15/gal and cost $34.50 to fill up my Altima . That's not a typo. 34.50 for 16.5 gallons of 87 octane regular. I never thought I'd see the day that happened again. A used S or ION would...
