Based upon this, I wrote my letter, and also linked to the Save the Kappa website upon my blog. Hopefully, we'll get some good traction here. I can't imagine Pontiac not wanting to save the star of their line-up within some form. This car made top-down driving affordable for me.
My two favorite accessories:

After that, we'll declare war on all the car mags that are dissing us in favor of the Miata and S2k. First we prove that increased performance is greater than increased storage. Then we'll point out that all these car experts should be more interested in driving the cars than leaving them sitting in a golf course's parking lot. All the while of course, we'll be hammering them for being dumb enough to support an inferior foreign car over a domestic car that slaughters it from a performance standpoint.
Then, the next step would be to tout the Kappa's fuel economy. Start lining it up with other cars with similar power, like the Mustang GT, Mazda RX-8, etc. Start showing that it's really the greatest thing for commuting back and forth to work, and has pushed the Miata out of that role and into the garbage bin.
If we get these cars into the limelight, they will sell. I can look at how many Kappas are in my area and prove that. Seems like once people here about the Kappas and research them, they can't help but get one. So, we need to fight off all the bad publicity and get this car noticed.
Take this review from Edmunds for instance:
2009 Saturn Sky Review - Edmunds.com
It's full of inaccuracies, (fuel mileage) they harp on reliability issues, (since when? compared to what?) and completely made-up issues. (vague steering? WTF is that?)
Or this one:
Follow-Up Test: 2007 Saturn Sky Red Line
That has the gall to go with the MX-5 over a Redline. Slow revving engine? Slow or not that MX-5 will never catch it. The MX-5 slaloms better? No ****, it's a lighter, smaller car. Apparently this guy knows nothing about driving, that or all the A/X guys switching to this platform are smoking something.
Till we start fighting to get the truth about our cars out there, we're sunk.

|Bogie||I didn't read all of the subject website, but a key target should be any entity that can facilitate increasing awareness and sales. Writing letters to GM will help raise visibility of our support at the decision level, but it's the letters that generate results against the bottom line that are needed to steer the decision makers in the desired direction.|

Someone needs to set up a Facebook group with this information.
I would, but I don't really know how!
|01-23-2009 06:12 PM|
Who are we supposed to address the letters to. The downloads leave that section blank?

All we ask is to write a personal letter, buy a couple stamps, and mail them off! It won't take long, and I bet most of us here can still afford a few stamps!

This thread is not a discussion on the negatives of the Kappa, but a thread about positive action and doing something about it! So go write a letter or 5 to GM!
