I want to know who loves Saturns so much to have one specially imported!

I can't see a single reason for a Japanese buying most US cars, other than being some kind of US-groupie.

Jeeps I can understand, and big SUV (that won't fit in the smaller streets, I guess) too. But a Saturn? A Buick?

And by the way, Saturns were sold in Japan when new...

I remember reading of Saturn exports (to Japan and Taiwan) as a source of pride for GM and a sign of things to come for the brand... yeah, right!

Maybe it was a Saturn Astra (same car as the Opel Astra).
