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

I turned 18, in 1998. My first car, was a 1989 Ford Escort hatchback with only 19,000 original miles on it. A dry rotted lower radiator hose ended its life. Back then, had I have known what I know now, I would have replaced it with a reasonably-priced Saturn SC.

Every car, I have owned, has been a used car with no payments. And every last one of them had oil leaks or burned oil. So, the typical Saturn S-Series issues were nothing I wouldn't have been used to.

But, in 2000, I worked for my family in the salvage yards. I remember tearing apart the Saturn SC and thinking to myself how I liked the style.

Maybe everything happens for a reason. Maybe I wasn't meant to own my Saturn until now. Either way, I regret not buying a Saturn sooner than I did.

The Saturn trademark and brand may be gone forever, but the ideas and designs live on. And those designs can be re-engineered, made better, and one day revive within the markets.

Hindsight is 20/20, and all of the things that caused a Saturn failure, can be done again.

Just takes the right people, and the right resources.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
