162. Funny thing is, we weren't talking about the original Saturns.
Edited on Mon Nov-17-08 08:22 PM by Atman
I mentioned that I was happy with the 2002 L200 we bought for my son to take to school. The respondent said "Good luck with the Saturn" and related his experiences with a car nearly 15 years older.

I don't know what your point is, other than to post that you think I didn't understand what you were saying.

I know that most cars share frames/engines/parts from those made by their corporate parents (Ford-Mazda-Jaguar-Volvo/Chevy-Toyota-Suzuki-Saab). I was simply connecting your comments about the quality of the Saturn to the upthread posts (I mentioned that, right?) about how many people loved their Cobalts. Which are basically just Saturns. Or the other way around.

A surprising number of people don't realize that there are really only a handful of cars with different pig-lipstick.

GM and Ford produce Mazda, Jaguar, Volvo, Saab, Suzuki, and even Toyota vehicles. The people in this thread who keep saying it's just "Detroit's fault" for producing cars no one wanted to buy are buying into a false meme. GM and Ford are helping build many of the cars you're claiming GM hasn't been building.
