Imagine if we got the Ampera here as a Saturn... I would seriously buy one.

BUT NO! "Americans don't want exciting-designed hybrids" GM thinks. Lutz and Wagoner stay high.

Saab was pretty cool. Was looking forward to their new 9-4 and 9-1x.

Hummer? eh. Not too much emotion.

Saturns use to be very well engineered cars. Don't know about quality after the '90's. They use to have quite a dull factor, but were just coming around in the style dept. Hummer should have stuck with just producing for the military IMO. But everyone wanted to be like Arnold. I thought it was funny to see them downsize to the H2, then the pint size H3 to fit the shrinking gas tank budget. It is sad to see Saab go away. Hope the Swiss government will step in to salvage their ars.

GM as thinking about asking Ford about merging Volvo with Saab. I think it's a pretty good idea.

I will miss saturn. Right when they started to produce some nice cars. I was looking at an auro and a malibu and think the aura is less out there and was gonna go that direction for the wifes car. Now she wants a CTS (yeah for me.)
