A new feeditems entry has been added:

Editorial: Saturn Heads to the Junkyard

Quote:
From the San Fransisco Chronicle: Quality ride, nice price, made in the USA. For nearly two decades, this description worked for Saturn, which preferred the ad-agency slogan, "a different kind of car company." But now the car is history, orphaned by General Motors, whose executives proudly created it, then undercut it and finally gave up on it.

It sucks that some media are giving Saturn some praise after it dies as a company. I guess it isn't polite to speak ill of the dead.

2007 AURA XR
Default Re: Editorial: Saturn Heads to the Junkyard

I loved my Saturns (SL-1,95, SL2-02) both went out with decent milage. I still have my Aura 07 and love it. I replaced my SL-2 with a Nissan Altima because it was the best used car on the lot of a former Saturn Dealer. This car is solid and should have been made by Saturn, but GM and the USA and the Unions gave up on small cars due to the low profit margin. Seems as though you cant support the furlows and union loafers with small car profits.
Nissan is made in USA in NON-UNION factories. The extra effort and money goes to the car and not to support the "welfare union croud" Farewell Saturn, it was nice to know ya.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

2007 ION-3 Sedan
Idea Re: Editorial: Saturn Heads to the Junkyard

Why is Saturn going to the junkyard? I still would like to say GM caused this demise to happen by taking it over when they were doing good as an independent company. Now what car would I get now? I have only driven Saturns as they are made in the US and gave me no drama. I gave up on Chrysler due to the fact that the Neon that I once loved let me down badly. I now own my second Saturn which is the ION after I traded in my SL1. I wish that I had kept my SL1 and owned the ION. Enough of about me, I still believe that GM should let Saturn branch off and become their own company again instead of driving it into the ground like they did the other brands that they have.

The got rid of Pontiac, which seemed to be doing good, Saab was good, and now they want to keep Chevy which is good also, however, why keep Cadillac, Buick, and the Chevy SUV's around when gas prices alone is killing the chances of these cars being sold? I don't understand why GM doesn't get rid of the upper management that they have who make this brainless decisions of how to run a company and blame the economy for their careless decisions.

Peace

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
