    Sorry bout that,


    1. I was wondering out loud why Pontiac got the axe?
    2. Makes for a wonderful topic.
    3. Could be he was killing off a brand he didn't like?
    4. Or was there something deeper, deep rooted that he wanted to eliminate?
    5. Makes me wonder?

    What I am bummed about is they dumped Saturn as well, and the long term extra warranty on the Saturn was void.


    Not that I needed the thing. It is a good car. But the warranty meant I got free oil change, tire rotate, etc.

    You just cant trust businesses to live up to their contract.
    That is why the US govt needs to be run like a business.

    1. Yes, Obama also got rid of Saturns, which I find strange too, seeing they just started making some really cool cars, that sports car was really cool,....whats it called?
