Retailers Often had Personal Connection to Saturn

Heather Stauffer from the Sentinel: John Sutliff's family has had a good run with Saturn, and he said Monday that even news General Motors is closing down the brand won't entirely change that. Sutliff said Saturn was "wildly successful" in central Pennsylvania, with the five area dealerships delivering more than 48,000 new Saturns since 1991. And year after year, he said, Sutliff consistently ranked in the top five of Saturn dealers nationwide in terms of new car sales volume. In addition to the sales, he said, there's also a personal connection: His father played a role in the early formation of the brand and was given the honor of becoming the very first signed Saturn dealer.

Review of the 2008 Saturn Astra 5-door XR

2008 Saturn Astra Road Test Photos

John Heilig from The Auto Page loved the details surrounding the 2008 Saturn Astra XR 5-door that he drove. "You recognize its European heritage with the 'switchblade' key that looks as if it came form the Audi/VW parts bin," he wrote. "The Astra has projector beam headlights nestled in plastic-covered nacelles. They consist of three units on each side and they're very impressive in a small car. It's what you'd expect in a high-end mid-size for example."
