    some one posted a link a few post down about the Malibu and how they messed up on listing the wrong engine

    I heard atlest 6 months ago on the news that GM and Honda have started working together and I've also seen it in a few mags one thing they all pointed out was thats why honda changed the direction of the engine "trans on right VS left" since its a standard with the rest of the car world

    just so you guys know its legit atlest from all the things I've read/seen on it

    if you can't beat them offer them money to use their parts =)

    Im all for it it makes honda parts all the more easy to find and also makes American cars some what dependable

    Id say clever but... I dont think GM will be able to handle such dependable parts

    Crappy car + some dependable parts still = CRAPPY CAR

    What the deal was is gm and honda went together on honda's v6 engines for saturns suv the vue and for the new ion coupe v6 due in the next couple of years. i used to be a big saturn guy untill i blew mine up (you could say) with 125 shot nos system and i bad run down the track. the car was built to handle it but the fuel system failed and kaboom. :D :D :D :D :D

    some guy in my complex has one of those, by the look of it I could run faster then that thing. Saturn is for people who live on the internet, and have no life. Errrrr except us! :)
