do you think gm was so dumb?
i know they discontinued a lot of brands first was geo in 1998 then olds in 2004 but when they discontinue brands they discontinued pontiac saturn hummer i'm happy for saturn but sad for hummer and i not much into pontiac except for sports cars but it's just wasn't pretty selling well, but they were right to discontinue because it had ugly cars except the sky which is the only good saturn, but they should also discontinue buick and gmc i mean because buick is such an ugly car which is a cheap version of cadillac which is the main luxury brand and my favorite american brand 2nd to lincoln and i was so glad they discontinue mercury since it was a cheap version of lincoln and gmc just copies chevy trucks and it's just exactly the same no sportier, or luxurious and they made the yukon denali which was the copy of escalade which was the only luxury gmc, if i was part of gm, i would keep these brands: Chevy: Main Brand of GM Cadillac: Luxury Brand of GM and the best of all american brands for famous rappers and rockstars Hummer: Off road SUVs needed for the military and beat out Jeep Pontiac: Bring back the muscle cars and sports cars instead of rebadged chevys like bring back the Firebird/Trans Am to share with the new camaro and compete with mustang and dodge challenger, the GTO, the G8, and the Solstice convertible sports car. Ford was right for discontinuing mercury and do you think the chrysler company should be discontinue for all brands and just keep dodge and make it their own company because it had the worst realibility and dodge was more selling though btw i'm more of a japanese and european car buyer though anyways don't make any rude comments or insult me unless you wanna get blocked for shit, so be nice i'm a nice guy too for your information i do hate american cars though

Yeah GM should discontinue Buick :rolleyes: The LaCrosse is outselling the ES330 and Buick is one of the top sellers in Europe and in China(they love love love Buick in China). Buick's redesign is geared for a younger target than in decades past. Buick is in no way shape or form trying to copy or compete with Caddy... More

I disagree. Hummer (h2 h3) have nothing to do with off road prowess. No better than a tahoe/trailblazer. For Pontiac/olds/Saturn/hummer. Remember, they didn't discontinue the cars that were selling. They stopped the brands that were not selling. Gm should have kept pontiac I agree there, but Buick sells, so they kept... More

GM was correct for discontinuing some brands of vehicles, but they should have kept Pontiac. In Pontiac's last death throws before being discontinued, the vehicles they had were nothing more than re-badged Toyota's targeted towards women and feminine men. Pontiac lost sight of their core business plan of making... More

I don't know if GM was really dumb but as for Saturn, I personally think maybe a good idea they stopped making them. I owned a 2001 Saturn L200 and had nothing but problems with it. In the 3 or 4 years I owned it I had to replace ALL the seals in it, the computer and ALL wiring, and then the timing chain went... More
