    Oh, I had '94 anniversary edition. Loaded. Loved it. But that was when it was still what it was supposed to be.

    As soon as they started the cross-pollination with the rest of GM, the gig was up.

    GM has had the ability to turn the best things into pure **** for some time now.

    The only GM I would ever drive. I have two. It's a sad day.
    It's time for a revolution in our country. Not a revolution forged with guns and bombs but a revolution forged of compassion and altruism. A revolution that extends a hand to those who don't have and who cannot. A revolution that makes Health Care available to all those in the US.

    I bought a used 1999 Chevy Cavalier in 2001 and I still drive it. A knowledgable owner and a routine of standard maintenance does wonders for "American made crap."

    BTW, like I stated above, your Saturn uses many of the same parts as other "crap" GM vehicles.

    Kinda wish Saturn made trucks, they were built really well.
    Jackboots always come in matched pairs, a left boot and a right boot.

    I have a '99 Jimmy and it still runs like a beast, despite some cosmetic stuff needing done. However, it will need to be replaced soon, and I doubt I'll go with GM for that.

    I also have a '06 Solstice; no issues so far, but I have less than 30K miles on it.

    I think there's tremendous opportunity for a brand new American car company. Shed all the baggage of what's gone before and hit on what works.

    It was a high quality car and right up there in quality with the car made by the people who brought us Pearl Harbor LOL !!

    Seriously Saturn made good cars.

    I see this as a big win for the taxpayer. The Gm bailout was nothing more than a bailout of the UAW under the guise of flushing (laundering?) tarp money through an apparently legitimate business of national impotance. This means bailout money can go directly to union workers without them having to go through the motions of building cars giving the taxpayer more bang for the buck.

    Ya think that maybe the stockholders of GM stock were also bailed out just a little and the mangement except for the poor guy who got picked out of the car pool with his golden parachute!!
