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

Because I like their cars and their products have been good for me.

Re: GM lied for years saying Americans preferred gas guzzlers

So this Macmanus lied for decades to "help" GM and now decides to come clean? And did his lying also transfer over to Toyota? Honda? Nissan? Did his fudging of the facts for GM somehow make Toyota's...

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

Thank you. I may have pushed my point a little too much, but I don't think I crossed the line into insulting. Others here are far more condescending, insulting and mean than I supposedly was....

Re: GM lied for years saying Americans preferred gas guzzlers

Yes, GM lied so much about it that Toyota, the paragon of 'eco', built large fuel-inefficient SUV's and full-size trucks that get even worse fuel economy than their GM counterparts. And they sell...

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

I wasn't trying to put anyone down and I don't feel that I did. I think my post was taken out of context, sometimes my sarcasm comes across as conceit. It was unintentional.

Like I said, my...

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

A certain moderator informed me that I must be tolerant and accepting of people being upset at GM's decision to close Saturn. Strangely enough that tolerance and acceptance doesn't appear to have to...

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

I already admitted that cloning was too strong a word choice, so please let it go. Yes, I am taking it personally.

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

Okay Mr. Jump the gun. Saturn (GM) bought Toyotas, Hondas, etc., and then tore them apart, found how how they designed them, why they worked the way they did (i.e., 'feel', NVH, etc.,) and then...

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

Exactly. This "betrayal" is a lame ass excuse. They've been buying GM cars from 1991 to 2009 if they bought a Saturn, so what's so different about buying GM cars now? They've always been GM cars.

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

How many times must this be said? GM was NOT bailed out, they took a loan. The banks were bailed out. GM has to pay back what was loaned. Big difference. And did you ever think maybe they're honoring...

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

No one wants to look at this rationally, but nice try. At least some of us are thinking this decision through instead of reacting emotionally. :D

Saturn was a great product and a great idea but...

Re: Saturn and Me: General Motors Loses a Customer

The EV1 was CARB mandated, it wasn't like GM was just itching to make an electric car. Once CARB killed the mandate, GM killed the money-losing program that the EV1 was. Hindsight being 20/20,...

Re: Saturn and Me: General Motors Loses a Customer

Where would I need to turn around at? If I make an error driving somewhere, I go to the next intersection and make 3 rights and a left to get back on track. I don't turn around in anyone's driveway....

Re: Saturn/Penske deal a farce from the start....Penske had no real plans to buy Satu

Yeah, the SEC is gonna come down like a meteor on Martha Stewart but they're going to allow GM and Penske to pretend to do business, just to sell some cars?

You forget, Charles Ghosn (who made...

I seriously hope you were being sarcastic. This would also imply that the SEC was involved as well. Let's see some proof, not just some tin foil hat-wearing speculation.

Re: Saturn and Me: General Motors Loses a Customer

I feel the same way, and I bought a Chevy. :yes: I'm not going to act like a 5 year old because they got rid of a brand that hadn't truly existed since 2002. No sense crying over cracked polymer.

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

Oh, I can handle a decent debate. Let me know when we're having one, okay? I conceded the debate to you a few posts back. Now you're just boasting. I was wrong, I posted an undefensible opinion and I...

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

And an Accord is an import even though it's built in America. I should have clarified: I won't buy anything from a Japanese, European or Korean car company. I will only buy from GM or Ford,...

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

BUT the profit stays in America, it doesn't go to Japan or Europe. That was my point.



Sorry, I won't buy an import. Whatever the justification, I don't care. It's just a matter of principle...

Re: Saturn and Me: General Motors Loses a Customer

As was I. There's brand loyalty and then there's fanaticism. I loved my Saturns, I just didn't LOVE my Saturns. ;) If I've had good experiences with GM vehicles, why should I stop buying them...
