- Phase out Saturn (I dont like it)
- put more money into R&D (when was the last time they had a major innovation? the HUD?)
- Bring back the F-body (somethings gotta keep those rustangs and ricers in line!)
As a GM employee & a Performance NUT, I can say GM in general is now trying to regather it'* lost market share to the Import Market!
The Saturn is actually a very great car! it'* cheap price & reliability make it so just about ANYONE can afford to drive one! Now with it'* 2.2 Ecotec engine like the Sunfires & Opel Speedsters in Europe!
As to Question of What I would do?
Well for starters, I would start on better getting back the lost market share! I would do this by first R&D'ng more RWD versions of cars! This way the Police Forces in North America wouldn't have to drive FORDS any longer!
The next thing I'd do is try & get the Canadian Government to loosen it'* grip on the "Emission Standards" for it'* cars that allowed to be driven on the streets of Canada.
