I had fallen for car’s big round dopey head-lights. All the way to the dealership, my mother insisted that I rethink buying a Dodge. “Their trouble,” she said, as we drove down the highway in her reliable Maxima. My ...

Posted by AskPatty - Automotive Advice for Women at Nov 9th, 2006 7:06pm

reprinted from Learned on Woman I noticed, with great interest, a brief article on the Saturn brand's "second coming," in yesterday's (11.5.06) New York Times. Early on in the 1990s, Saturn had been a shining example of transparent marketing to women. The no-dicker sticker they were known for tended to women's ways of buying without thinking pink. The tagline back then was "A Different ...
