General Motors Fail

One of my cars gets 36 miles per gallon. It has a lightweight, dent resistant polymer body. It's been reliable and inexpensive to maintain. I've had it for 12 years and it has over 234,000 miles on it. Nowadays I drive it between 250 and 500 miles a week.

Japanese?

Nope. It's an American car. A General Motors car. So what does GM do with a brand that could produce a car with those qualities?

You know, a car from a "different kind of car company"?

First they bring it in close, then they kill it.

GM today announced that the Saturn brand would be "phased out" after the 2011 model year.


What a shame.
