I hadn’t planned on posting again today, but I also didn’t expect to receive the email I am about to share. I sent the URL for the post Congratulations! to Buick. An aside: I couldn’t send an email to General Motors per se, but had to pick one of the makes. Since you probably don’t have this blog memorized like I do, the majority of the post was about the Pontiac Solstice/Saturn Sky and I wrote that I have long believed that the Solstice/Sky should be improved and revived and sold by Buick as a halo car. That’s why I sent the link to Buick because, of course, neither Pontiac nor Saturn exists.
Here is a portion of an email I received today from the Buick Customer Assistance Service Team:
“Thank you for contacting Buick Customer Assistance Center. We appreciate you taking some of your time to write, and share with us this link, featuring two of our GM vehicles, a Pontiac Solstice GPX [sic], and a Saturn Sky Red Line. We are very pleased with your enthusiasm for GM brands!
We are not ruling out the possibility of bringing these vehicles back to the market. Please note that your suggestion is documented and made accessible to the appropriate department for proper review. The Service Request Number that we have created for your feedback is…”
While I realize that replies like this are done to foster goodwill among the car-buying public, and I doubt I am the only person to send such an idea, I have to admit I was excited by “We are not ruling out the possibility of bringing these vehicles back to the market.”
I would be more excited if I were to receive one of these cars as a token of appreciation if/when they are revived. 🙂 What would they call it? Buick Wildcat, Buick Electra…Wouldn’t it be nice?
