Re: Goodbye Saturn: Thanks for the Ride (1985-2010)

Saturn led me to buy a GM car when I otherwise wouldn't have. GM's handling of Saturn will ensure that I will never purchase another GM vehicle.

Re: The new cruze looks like an ION redone. IMHO

GM gave it the Chrysler Sebring C pillar treatment, which looks awful imo.

Re: a future saturn??

GM has some nice vehicles coming along (like the Insignia that would've gone to Saturn instead of Buick), but I will not buy a GM vehicle again due to GM's handling of Saturn.

Re: Lajdziak replaces Schembri as president of Smart

First she'll get rid of the Smart's plastic panels. Then she'll say it's more cost effective to share global platforms, and sell derivatives of other cars on the market. Finally, she'll say that...

Re: Goodbye Fritz - GM CEO OUT

That cap isn't that high - usually in the neighborhood of $500 a week or so. So, it's not like you can make 6 figures or anything on unemployment!

Re: GM to close Saturn by 1st Quarter?

Saturn has not had a truly different vehicle for years. When the polymer clad VUE was replaced by that Mexican built Opel SUV, the last of the real Saturn was history, imo.

Re: A Wealth of Lessons from Saturn Failure

From what I hear, the president of the company that took us over got a multi-million dollar bonus for the acquisition/merger that cost me and most of my colleagues our jobs. Seems so typical! ...

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

Saw a bunch of those in Italy. The older 500's always make me laugh! The newer ones I think are closer in size to a Mini Cooper.

Re: Anyone else angry with GM about the VTI lawsuit?

Ouch, that really sucks! Sorry to hear that. I don't trust CVT's, which is another reason I won't buy another Subaru Legacy, as they've switched over to those in favor of a conventional automatic...

Re: A Letter from Jill Lajdziak to Saturn Owners Regarding GM

Maybe she should've paid attention when Saturn owners said they liked their polymer body US made Saturns, instead of ignoring them and saying, "Here, have a steel bodied rebadged import with a Saturn...

Re: A Letter from Jill Lajdziak to Saturn Owners Regarding GM

It's too bad Subaru seems to be going downhill now. I love my 2007 Legacy, but there's no way I'd consider the ugly, cheap, de-contented 2010 Legacy. :no:

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

I like my 2007 Subaru Legacy 2.5i Limited, and I would have stuck with Subaru if the 2010 Legacy wasn't so darned ugly! They really ruined that car with the new design, imo.

Re: Saturn Deserves Better than Revisionists Calling Its Cars Ordinary

I must have gotten a good one! I had one initial defect on delivery - a leaking o-ring in the a/c system that caused the car to lose refrigerant quickly. I had that fixed within the first couple of...

Re: Saturn Deserves Better than Revisionists Calling Its Cars Ordinary

I loved my SL2, and I doubt I'll ever own a car again that's as durable and reliable as that car was. I put 220,000 miles on it and would've kept it even longer, but I hit a deer on a rural...

Re: Saturn Deserves Better than Revisionists Calling Its Cars Ordinary

In my opinion, three things separated Saturn's S Series cars from GM's other small car offerings of the day, like the Cavalier. I'm talking strictly about the cars, not the dealers or the customer...

Penske kept false hope alive just long enough to clear out inventory under the Cash for Clunkers program!

Re: Some Saturn Owners, Retailers Have a Special Relationship with Vanishing Brand

Lutz had obvious disdain for Saturn's unique features like the dent resistant plastic panels, and was very critical of the S Series, which was of course Saturn's most successful car to date. Lutz was...

Re: Some Saturn Owners, Retailers Have a Special Relationship with Vanishing Brand

A "Saturn" that was merely a rebadged import would have been an insult to the original mission anyway, imo. I think Saturn died 10 years ago when GM took away the division's autonomy and began...

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

If GM revives Saturn and gives it a good, US made car with polymer body panels, maybe! ;) Otherwise, no, I will not purchase a GM vehicle.
