Saturn Slips Out Of Orbit

I’m fairly certain I’m not the only one making astronomical jokes about the failure that is the Saturn company.  This isn’t a complaint about their cars reliability, looks, or even pricing, just about the company itself.  Why should a company like Saturn be kept around by a conglomerate like GM, when it has been losing money since day 1?  Let bad ideas die and concentrate elsewhere.

Dust under the mat eventually create one demonic dust bunny.  In this case, bailed out GM can no longer justify keeping a failing company artificially afloat.  “A Different Kind of Company”, that produced a very mundane vehicle line up.

So much for Saturn Astra sparking enough sales in the movie Transformers 2.  This will most likely be the very last entry in the Saturn category.  Fine by me, Saturn never made news enough to write about anything anyway.

  2. Actually I’ve never owned an import, but thanks for your assumptions. Clearly my article is looking at it through a business perspective. If something isn’t making money and there aren’t enough of you Saturn fanbois out there to keep it a float, why keep losing money to it?

    This becomes especially true when tax payers are footing the bill.
