To the Editor:
I shuddered when I read David Sedgwick's column in the Jan. 16 issue.
General Motors already killed one of its better car lines when it killed Oldsmobile. To think it would even consider killing Buick, one of the best-made American cars, is sad.
I know that Buick doesn't have models with pizazz, but they are well-built and dependable.
I think GM should try to bring Chevrolet and Pontiac up to Buick quality or give the new, sexier styling to Buick, not Pontiac.
Kill Pontiac. I seem to recall reading that it had the lowest profit margin of any GM line.
I can't imagine an upscale Chevrolet, but then I'm in my 60s, and I can't imagine much of anything anymore.
I only know that American automakers are in deep trouble, and it will take a miracle for them to survive if they don't change the way they think.
Maybe that would mean putting the Buick line under the Chevrolet banner. (Shudder.)
