While GM hasn’t officially made the announcement, GM’s CEO Rick Wagoner noted that the brand is under review at last week’s congressional hearings. He said the GM will not allocate any money on future Saturn products and said that the brand has performed below the company’s expectations. Wagoner said that GM will focus all of its resources on Chevrolet, Cadillac, Buick and GMC brands instead.
Not taking the news very well, worried Saturn fans have created an online petition to help keep the unprofitable brand alive.
Kat Koonce, who owns three Saturns, is one of the most devoted Saturn fans amongst the 2,500 that post photos of their cars on Saturnfans.com who is running the petition.
“I just can’t stand the thought of them doing away with Saturn,” said Dianne Pollard of Hixson, Tennessee, another Saturn fan. Pollard created the Sky Club of Chattanooga.
