Hi. Tomorrow will be the last day for us at Saturn(Now called General Motors Spring Hill Assembly Plant) in Spring Hill, Tn to produce our vehicles with the Saturn badge on them. The Saturn lineup will continue, but different GM plants will now build the vehicles and we will shut down most of our plant for about 14 months while we retool for a Chevrolet product. I just wanted to say thank you from the gang in Tennessee for your support of our entire work force as you have purchased our vehicles as your toads.
The independence you show in your fulltiming and part-time rving is similar to our own as we started from scratch in 1986 and built a car company. Our future was unknown, but with hard work and lots of ideas from our customers, we progressed into an award winning company and we feel that GM has benefited in many ways from our efforts. Thank you for your support of an American product. We will continue to use the same diligence in our work ethics with the new vehicle that GM gives us to build. See y all down the road-

Thanks for the kind words Mike. Info today indicates a crossover very similar to a GMC Acadia.

I'll throw in our THANKS for the five saturns we have purchased over the years. Our '06 VUE is living-up to the Saturn tradition of value and performance. I fell like a member of the family has passed on.

I am not sure where our two saturns were built at but we are pleased with both of them.
We are not pleased with the local rip-off dealer and have fired them. We now have an indelendent shop taking GREAT care of our two barely broken in, (towed more miles then run) Saturns and contine to be pleased with them.
Best to you and all of your people down there.

I owe thanks to Saturn just for the transmissions developed by them. I use the trans in an Olds Cutlass and it make towing a pleasure.

To Don and the Spring Hill Assembly Plant,

I'd also like to send a big THANKS to the Spring Hill Team. Our 2005 V6 Saturn Vue has been flawless as both a family vehicle and a Toad. It has done an excellent job at representing what American automotive manufacturers can do.

Good luck,
Bob

Don, I never owned a Saturn, and probably never will. But I just wanted to say thanks for moving america forward. It's millions of folks like you that make this the best country in the world. Good luck with the new assignment.

Thanks for some great Saturns from the Spring Hill Team. I have a 1991 SL1 with over 300,000 miles, a 1994 SC1 with 175,000 miles and a 2002 VUE with 110,000 miles. My family has not been able to wear out these Saturns. My family attended the first Home Coming at the factory and had a great time talking with your Team members.

GOOD LUCK with your future assignment.
