I disagree.

With the exception of car-based SUV'*, their popularity is looming. Small and midsize cars that are easy on gas and utilitarian are becoming more popular...

The SUV fad is quickly passing...

Now another reason why I should flip the finger as I pass an SUV down the highway.

The Bonneville was the only car that I loved from the Pontiac line. The other cars had sport, but none of them had class like the Bonneville had.
I saw Barney on TV. Is he real?

Gimme a break. I've heard too many rumors. TV is not gospel. I'll wait for official word from GM.

The fad is passing, doesn't mean that SUV'* are going to disappear. But they're no longer going to be the huge sellers they are...

And the Torrent is based on the Equinox. It'* almost identical to the nox actually. Both are built on the global Theta architecture. Not related to the Envoy.

I have a really great Idea.


Next time someone starts another damn post about the bonne ceasing production, they get BANNED instantly.

I have been hearing the same damn thing for the past, what, 2 years now. Come on now, get over it.
