Not surprising. Saturn actually makes money and leads GM in customer loyalty and with the number of return customers.


I've owned a few of them for my DD including a new 08 VUE



No motor...no trans...no stereo...BUT...at least the interior is done
...beaten...abused...enjoyed...driven

I work in the auto collision industy, and I have NEVER met any customers as loyal as Saturn customers. It was the strangest thing, everytime we got a Saturn to fix, and I met the customer, they always raved about their car and how much in love they were with it. You can just tell, and I always found it weird because to me, I've never liked Saturns, but these people loved them. I thought they were crazy

I've only owned a few different brands. A Chevy, Ford and a Dodge. Neither one truly has loyalty over the other. I enjoy and hate an equal number of vehicles produced by all 3.

I did have the pleasure to drive a Chrysler Sebring Touring ed. It felt like it was floating on the pavement. Very comfortable. Probably the most comfortable car I've ever driven. I'm actually considering trading Mustang GT in for a new Chrysler Sebring. There's just something about the new body style that attracts me to it. Apart from the better gas mileage.

It is amazing how well auto makers do once the Government throws billions of dollars to them. My family business would certainly be more profitable if I could just threaten to file bankruptcy and be handed loads of cash. Thank goodness those auto execs are paid so well for their leadership!!
Just my 2 cents...

thanks for the lack of intelligent in your response...since you have no idea what the terms or conditions of this pale sum of money the goverment gave them...that they have to give back..not like the banks..

but again some people think Ford got this money too!

You like the looks?

GTFO! It's a monstrosity!!

It does ride nice though, but it's best viewed from behind the wheel.
