Marginally deceptive advertisement. Perhaps some state Attorney General's review is warranted.

The term AMERICAN appears three times in one sentence.

American car companies cannot build a car that Americans want. Saturn builds cars that Americans

US autoworkers would probably prefer the names of Americans on the paychecks of the folks that build these cars. Disingenuous that Saturn doesn't include at least a footnote disclaimer that their preferred choice of assembly locaton is Belgium and Mexico!

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

+1 People really need to shut their trap unless unless they have their facts straight.

The Outlook is built in Lansing, MI USA
The Aura is built in Kansas City, MO USA
The Sky is built in Wilmington, DE USA
The Vue is built in Ramos Arizpe, Mexico
The Astra is built in Antwerp, Belgium (as it is merely an Opel Astra with a Saturn badge on it)

Three of Saturns current models are assembled in the USA. Last I knew, Mexico was part of North AMERICA. Mexicans also commonly recognize themselves as Americans. So that isn't much of a lie. So, that leaves the Astra as Saturn's only non-American built car.

By the originally intended definition, the word "American" refers to a native inhabitant of the New World. However, since the name of our country (the "United States of America") contains the word "America" the citizens of this country conveniently (and somewhat selfishly IMO) began to refer to themselves "Americans". Even though anyone who lives in North, Central, or South America is an American.
