Quote from: Roger Zimmermann on September 19, 2018, 05:24:17 AMInteresting article, but I think the matter was more complex than that. A Mr. Roger Smith did a lot of mistakes; one of tem was Saturn, when the money used for the temporary brand could have been better used on existing brands.Quality (or lack of it) was also a reason why cars from Japan had success. From 1989 to 2002, I was a Service district manager for US GM vehicles in Switzerland. GM sent a myriad of people in Europe at that time; boy, they were so arrogant and ignorant! I remember around the year 2000 I said to "my" dealers: I don't understand why this company is not yet bankrupt...The answer came in 2008.

However, the move by Cadillac to a 4.1 powered FWD car did usher in Lincoln, MB, Lexus and the like as preferred brands over Cadillac in the late 1980's and newer.
