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

That's nice, Ms. J. I truly believe you were loyal to the brand and idea of Saturn and actually believed in it taking a new direction.

In the end, it takes a tool to move up @ GM. Smith, Wagoner, Fritz and Lutz: all highly paid and very busy running GM into the ground over the past 20 years.

Does anyone really think they had any interest in building on what they had created with Saturn? They didn't know WTF to do with it when it took off.

The ION proved [as did the 96 Taurus] that the decision makers had no clue what made their cars popular.Same thing taking the brand "upscale".

Did anyone expect a different result given GM's ability to destroy it's brands ? It's almost as if the outcome was preordained.

At least Jill is not responsible for the decisions the dolts at the top made and can leave with relatively little blood on her hands. She tried to put the best spin on some really bad ideas from GM.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
