Well, that was intelligent. So all the other GM models that are just copies of the Saturns that came out first are pretty?

Never mind, I don't argue with ignorant people.

Anyways, Saturn announced a few days ago that the Franchise Owners Team is working hard and will be breaking from GM to start their own company to bring Saturn back to it's roots. The team is already in place ad they are actively seeking a new unique manufacturer who will build new cars to only their specs.

What brands does Obama like? He runs GM now. Remember who can fire/hire the CEO runs the company.

In the old days, CEO's were fired and hired by a Board of Directors. The board was typically made up of experts in the field.

Now its the Democrat president who picks the CEO. The board should be dissolved.

LOL sorry Saturn owners who really buy the "new" kind of car company crap. Gm came up with the Saturn idea in the 80s but scrapped it

I agree, I think the vue is a great car. I understand that there are several groups wanting to salvage Saturn when GM is forced to dump them. One of those groups is the Saturn dealers, they are trying to raise the money to purchase it.

I couldn't agree more. I got my Vues at Saturn of Torrance and they were top-notch in every way, from sales to service and friendly and helpful staff.

I certainly hope they succeed. I would really hate to see Saturn go.
