Please see my thread on why Saturn needs to fold into Chebby. Other than styling, there's nothing that distinguishes a Saturn from a Chebby. F'instance: you don't pay what's on the sticker no mo'. The cars are metal-skinned now. Same warranty. Same everything.

I hope Saturn is kept as a separate brand but if the alternative is it going away completely I'd accept their future models carrying the Chevy brand.

She and her husband, Nick, met at a Saturn owners' event, their wedding was a Saturn owners' event, and they have owned six Saturns between them. They have brought numerous relatives and friends "into the Saturn cult," said Nick, whose dream is to own a Saturn dealership.
Hmm, what kind of rituals does one do in the Saturn Cult? The main ritual I do is topping off my oil.
