Default Car and Driver Sept 2009 New Car Issue

Did anyone else notice that the latest Car and Driver's new model summary for the 2010 issue went straight from Saab to Scion?

Uhhhh could that have maybe something to do with the fact that there is absolutely nothing new in the Saturn line for 2010?

Well, I take that back. What's new is that they lost the Astra and the Sky. Feel better now?

Other than the fact that Saturn has no changes other than killing the Sky and Astra, Car and Driver prefers to ignore Saturn. Every time a Saturn comes up in a test it's rated very low, and any positive comments are denigrating with faint praise.

Even Pontiac (who's supposed to go away in 2010) was mentioned. I'm suprised that the Vibe continues as a Pontiac--will it be sold thru Chevy or Buick dealers? SAAB was listed even tho they were sold off just like Saturn and have only 1 model (9-3) left in their "lineup". I flipped to the end of the article, where the smaller niche makes were listed and still no mention of Saturn! Come to think of it, I've read very little about the proposed sell-off of Saturn and the proposed buyout by Penske in the car magazines. I always suspected that most of the automotive press disliked Saturn and considered them irrevalent--I guess I'm pretty sure now!

I'm sure the clever writers at C&D would have some word-play fun should Tata introduce two new models at the same time.
