Saturn and Saab Retailers Face Uncertain Fates

Tags:

In a story about the dubious future of the Saturn brand, Chrissie Thompson from Automotive News talked to George Nahas, owner of two Saturn stores in Alabama and Florida. She wrote about how Mr. Nahas "owned only an Oldsmobile dealership when General Motors announced in 2000 that it would kill the brand. So he moved on - to Saturn." Now Nahas "again faces the possibility that the struggling automaker will take away his livelihood. 'I feel violated,' Nahas said. 'Just a couple of weeks ago they were telling us how viable Saturn was to General Motors. They were asking all of us to help them get the $25 billion aid package.' Nahas said he doesn't know what to think because the Saturn plan lacked specifics."
