Some Retailers Want an End to Saturn Mandate for Stand-Alone Stores

Robert Snell from the Detroit News: Stuart Lasser, who owns a Saturn dealership 34 miles west of New York City, sued GM on November 20 after the automaker rejected an attempt to subdivide his showroom and sell vehicles made by GM and South Korea's Kia Motors, according to federal court records. "All I'm trying to do is survive here," Lasser said in an interview with The Detroit News. "They're not letting me do that." Lasser's request would have been unprecedented for Saturn. Many GM brands are sold under one roof - Buick, Pontiac and GMC, for example - but Saturn was established as a stand-alone brand, and there are no permanent Saturn stores in the country where rival brands are also sold, Saturn spokesman Steve Janisse said.
