Retailer Praises Penske Purchase

Craig McEwen from INFORUM: A preliminary agreement between General Motors and Penske Automotive Group to buy Saturn has put a lot of people at ease, said Andy Boen, owner of the Fargo Saturn dealership. On June 5, GM said it had agreed to sell Saturn to Penske Automotive Group, one of the nation's largest automobile dealers and owned by famous race car driver Roger Penske. "I think Penske's going to finish up the deal with General Motors by the third quarter of this year," Boen said. Nobody knew what was going to happen with the Saturn brand before the Penske announcement, he said. "Now the buyers are relaxed, and the employees aren't afraid of their future," he said.

General Motors announced today that the company will extend it's popular 100th anniversary employee pricing sale until the end of September. The sale "helped drive additional showroom traffic and our dealers are giving us some very enthusiastic feedback," said Mark LaNeve, vice president of GM North America Vehicle Sales, Service and Marketing. "We had our best sales month so far in 2008." As a result, he said GM "added 19 additional 2009 models to the eligible list of vehicles because our 2008 stock on dealer lots is rapidly disappearing." Among the 2009 models added today were the Saturn Aura sedan, Outlook crossover, and Sky roadster.
