2008 Saturn VUE AWD 4dr V6 exterior front leftEnlarge Photo
The caravan is scheduled for the following stops: Ohio State University in Columbus, Penn State University in State College, Howard University in Washington, D.C., Ottawa Elementary in Toledo, Ohio, Saturn of Monroeville, Pa., and Saturn of Harrisburg, Pa. Students and others will have the opportunity to sign an enormous card wishing Obama well in his Presidency; the card medium is infused with wildflower seeds and will be planted after it is shared with Obama. Individuals will get the opportunity to have their picture taken with a sign declaring their individual Pledge For Change. I want to see a snap of Wagoner solemnly swearing never again to allow production of behemoths like the Hummer H2.
Alas, the Road to Change might end up in the land of new ownership for Saturn. There has been talk of axing Saturn for some time, and on the same day of the VUE's auspicious departure from Detroit, GM CEO Rick Wagoner hinted at Saturn's departure from the GM fold. "I don't rule anything out," said Wagoner to reporters at the Detroit Auto show.--Colin Mathews
