GM is one of the questionable masters of re-packaging and promoting old and/or cheaper vehicles to appeal to a market segment that actually believes the HYPE - cases in point - chevy cavalier = caddy cimmaron , opel = caddy catera , the caddy suv is really a chevy , and we have that Humm Job H 2 actually of Tahoe/Yukon lineage - a ride for emasculated little twits who believe a powerful ( their perception , not mine ) machine will somehow make up for the loveless upbringing they endured as pups - as expected most of them are leased not purchased - rent a better self image - you can't afford it any way -valbowski1980 said:Ugh!

Finally logic on the SUV debate. While I disagree with you on people being stupid and ignorant, as I think people who buy tend to be unaware of the dangers they pose.Rob in Atlanta said:The problem isn't with SAAB or with GM. They will either succeed or fail based on whether they sell what customers want and make happy customers who tell their friends.
If you don't like what types of vehicles are being sold, then you eventually only can blame the consumer. There are sufficient choices that no one is forced to buy a SUV or a wagon or a sedan or a hatchback or a two-seater. While we may not agree with the choices that consumers make, calling them ignorant or stupid isn't accurate. Not everyone thinks alike or has the same set of priorities or values. People purchase vehicles with many different expectations. We SAABisti tend to share certain priorities that run counter to someone who, say, purchases a SUV. It doesn't mean the SUV purchaser is an "idiot" or is "stupid." While I have never owned a SUV nor do I intend to purchase one, I'm glad that the choice is available for me.
I loathe SUVs no matter if the badge says SAAB or Chevy, it has nothing to do with being an "old schooler" or not accepting change. SUVs are yet another chapter in the "bigger is better" mind **** also know as the American car buyer.Brewman013 said:Boy..I'm sorry I posted anything in here. For the good of Saab, I would think you would want the 9.7X to do well but I guess you old schoolers just can't except change huh? :lol:

I am so surprised, there were so many who were more deserving. I would like to thank the Academy, my publicist, and my loyal fans who stuck behind me all these years :cheesy:. This award will look great on my wall right next to the Johnny Rotten "**** off!" statuette.Rob in Atlanta said:In all levity - I hereby award you the "H.L.
