Default Got my GM Letter

I got my GM letter today in the mail indicating Saturn may be gone.

At least they got some courtesy to inform us officially. Since the last year is 2007, we got parts until 2017 based on federal law to have 10 years of parts. Plus we have aftermarket stuff.

I think Saturn can be great again if someone buys it, maybe from China, Russia, of Eastern Europe. East Germany made a dent resistent car back in the 50's, plastic mixed with wool/cotton called the Trebant, see wikipedia article.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

2004 VUE 2.2L
Default Re: Got my GM Letter

I did not get a letter O.O

What happens when they stop making parts for the car? I had hoped this would be a long long term car for me. My last few cars lasted forever. 400K on my Holden Jackaroo , and then 150k on my Blazer (only got rid of it for gas reasons during the $5 a gallon gas)

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

If you take good car of your car you can start cannibalizing other crashed Vues or Junkers for parts. No worries, most people get bored or get rid of a vehicle every 5 years or crash them for the bone yard. Should be ok.

Most important thing is the ones with the Honda Engine/Transmission have Honda sources to turn too And the minor parts like door motors, alternators etc can probably use generic GM parts- provided GM is still around. But it looks they are keeping GM around even if it cost billions- we'll see if that lasts...
