Thumbs Up Just watched Relay DVD

Just watched a Relay DVD that Saturn sent to us with my whole sales team. It really looks better in motion and at different angles than the photo indicates. Has a nice interior. Dual power sliding doors, radio controls in the steering wheel. Lots of storage. Still trying to find out what powertrain it has. Be sure to watch the live webcast tomorrow (12/04) at www.saturn.com/relay .

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

I sure hope it does. From the samples on the web, I'm not impressed.

Just watched it. I think it was pretty good. I would buy one if I was in the market for one.

3.5 L. 60 degree v-6 with 200 horsepower. This is the new engine from the Malibu. Next year it gets OD (displacement on Demand) . I just watched the first of three clips on the site you posted. Its looking better to me.

I like the interior. Un-Saturn like and it does have a European look to it. I bet the interior is just a clone of the other vans, but I see it as a vast improvement over the past Saturn interiors.

Past Saturns: 97 SL2, 01 SC2, 04 VUE, 08 Astra, 02 L200.

I am excited about the Relay. I'll mis the polymer, but it fits a niche that we have been missing-a multiple passenger vehicle. I have all the specs, but i don't know if I'm supposed share them just yet, plus it's in a huge word document.

Humm, after watching those videos I'm much more impressed. They show it from different angles and have it in a much better color (Pewter), and it makes it look a lot better.

I really do like the interior, and I can totally see a lot of "borrowed" elements and looks from the Opel division.

The steering wheel is kinda strange, but I do like the gauges and the center console.

Looked pretty good to me(and I hate minivans). If I were in the market for one I would give this one some seriuos consideration. The interior is a knockout.., very European.

I watched all three clips and think its really not bad. Of course I am a minivan fan.
Spencerb:I think the interior looks a lot like the VUE.

Well, I had to load quick time to see that....

I wonder if they think that we don't know this is a Venture with an XC 90 nose on it? They talk about it like it was a clean sheet design "different from competitors". Different from the Buick, Chebbie, and Pontiac in what way?? And the SUV talk - what a bunch of bunk - it is a freaking minivan, not a SUV and only Ray Charles would confuse it for a SUV.

Please, someone at GM stop sniffing fluorohydrocarbons and give Saturn back to Saturn Fans!!
