True, but considering that the French automaker Renault has a 45 percent stake in Nissan and it was the Nissan Sentra's platform-shared mechanical cousin (the Renault Samsung SM3) that would be supplied to Penske, it was the Board of Directors at Renault that brought about Saturn's demise.

I would have liked to see Saturn team up with Peugeot even though the distinctly French design language of their vehicles would not have met well with North American consumer taste.

I have not owned a Saturn going on four years, but there are still Saturns in my household, so I remain.

No more Saturns! :(
