Default What the HELL are they talking about?

News Bonneville may or may not live past 2004, when the related Buick LeSabre is to get a thorough reengineering job. Pontiac is said to be undecided about continuing its full-size car because sales aren't what they need to be. Indeed, Bonneville dropped a sizeable 26 percent year-over-year in calendar 2001 and another 22.4 percent in the first nine months of 2002.

Yeah...we can do that..

GM Canada and GM USA are 2 different companies pitching a product to 2 different markets. I guess the Bonneville is just not selling anymore.

I acutally heard that the 04 Bonnie'* aren't coming to Canada.

I know the dealerships in Atlantic Canada will not be carrying them.

Precisely! Sometimes I think that GM is too big for it'* own good. They need to separate the companies they own out a little more. Like they need to tone down the luxury in Chevy trucks and leave it for the GMC'*.
