Re: PHS services,again

HPP had a little write up about it this month. They did kill the Montana, Cliff. They have the Torrent FWD SUV though. Yeah...GMs thing against rebadging vehicles...not working out so good considering the Torrent=Equinox=Vue and the G5=Cobalt...etc... They definately need to step it up and be the performance divison they once were.

Re: PHS services,again

I personally liked the suggestion part written by HPP about Pontiac becoming the upscale performance division for all of GM except for Cadillac.... i.e. Pontiac offering the hottest upscale versions of cars from all the GM divisions.

Man, wouldn't that piss off the Camaro folks!

They really need to can that G5 cobalt rip-off, especially after GM said Pontiac would do no more small cars like that after the demise of the Sunfire. That Torrent is too expensive, the G6 is too slick, the GP is too old now, but the Vibe is pretty cool (we have one of those!). I'm just hoping that Pontiac's return to all-RWD vehicles pans out soon. That upcoming G8 looks to be a good one.

They're already pissed with us because Firebird historically were more powerful then their cars were from the factory. At least until GM moved to the corporate engine system.
