Default GM May Complete Saturn Shutdown by the End of March, Not October 2010 as Previously A

A new feeditems entry has been added:

GM May Complete Saturn Shutdown by the End of March, Not October 2010 as Previously Announced

Quote:
From AutoWeek: "All of our efforts will be to sell down our remaining 2009 inventory," Susan Docherty, GM's vice president of U.S. sales, said today at a press event. "We'll have a little bit of carryover of that into the first quarter of 2010, but the objective is to keep our inventory somewhere between 425,000 to 450,000 units." Docherty said she is confident that GM will clear out the 2009-model-year inventory by January. Meanwhile, the company likely will shutter its Pontiac and Saturn brands by the end of the first quarter, Docherty said.

Thumbs Down Re: GM May Complete Saturn Shutdown by the End of March, Not October 2010 as Previous

Yeesh.

This sucks.

Well; at least there will be plenty of S-Series parts in JYs for me to pick up over the next couple of years, and the timeframe for S-Series parts isn't up until 2012.



GM is such a crock. As has been discussed on here; I really can't stand the way the company has basically run itself into the ground.

The only other Saturn I would consider buying now used would be another S-Series or a 2005 VUE...nothing past 2005.

Words escape me on GM...

Yeah, but it's not like we haven't seen this coming for a long long time.

I wouldn't mind picking up a low-mileage 1st gen SC2 as a commuter beater.

I know....just that with the way GM has been operating lately; this announcement of closing 6 months before previously mentioned, is like adding salt to a fresh wound. It's like the final nail in the coffin that is already buried in the ground.
