    "GM drops it as it gets it right... again"

    There goes GM again. The Fiero, a disaster until they go it right, and slashed it. Same with the Cadillac Allante. The Olds Aurora was a brilliant design (yes, with its own share of problems), the GTO, could have been better but a unique care. Saturn, finally the right mix. The Pontiac G8 Sport Truck, attention getter. The new 9-1 concepts, the 9-4X... There they go again. GM will never be a Honda. By eliminating brands, volumes will go down and cost of producing all these cars that used to share parts, up...
    Suggestion: replace Saturn in the US with Opel, bringing the true European flare, even at lower volumes, and keep Pontiac's niche products. Saab, I will miss it, but not the 9-3 or 9-5, the old 900 and other neat, but older quirky cars...

    "The first of many?"

    The Big Three all say bankruptcy is not an option - no one will buy the cars and they will just end up liquidating. Now we get to see what happens on a smaller scale.
