"Passport" was GM Canada's third dealership network from 1988-1991 selling Isuzu cars and trucks, Saab and the Daewoo sourced "Optima" (which was sold in the U.S. as the Pontiac LeMans).

When Saturn was released in Canada for the 1992 model year season, the Passport name disapeared along with the Optima.

The dealership network was now known as Saturn-Saab-Isuzu outlets.

Geos were sold as Chevrolets in Canada until 1992 and Pontiac wanted a taste of the action so the "Asuna" brand was started up to compete with Chevy's Geo models.

The Storm was sold as the "Asuna Sunfire" and the Tracker as the "Asuna Sunrunner". The departed Optima was resurrected as the "Asuna SE & GT". The Asuna nameplate was only around for the 1992-1993 season.
