Question Are there New Saturn that are sold at Invoice?

I see several books showing prices on Saturn's. I was wondering if there were any Saturn sold at invoice or just Sticker price only?

Saturn retailer policy is sticker price. They occasionally have sales, like the red tag sale, and I've heard of occasions where a dealer may decide to sweeten a deal a little with a few cheap accessories, but they stick to the price on the car.

This can hurt Saturn sales now when you have vehicles like Outlook/Acadia/Enclave basically the same.I know you can get a strip Outlook in the low $30k but most will have some accessories that could run the price up real quick to the high $30 area. Buick and GMC will deal making them cheaper in the long run.

Price and reputation sells. I don't know if Saturn is there yet.

I think the secret to sell vehicles at MSRP is to make that price competitive with the net price of competitors after all their discounts and write downs are applied. If the bottom line is basically the same or better, MSRP is not a hindrance to sales.

Here's a couple of fun little articles on the topic:
http://money.cnn.com/2006/09/19/auto...ion=2006092412

http://www.cnn.com/2006/AUTOS/03/20/...ing/index.html

I never have and never will pay more than 15% less than invoice on any vehicle, including a Saturn. No haggle pricing means they won't come down, but they will definitely put in every effort to drive you up.

In the past you have been able to buy Saturns at the end of the model year, with as much as $3500 off the sticker price.

That has to be below invoice!

I'm very much doubting this. Care to offer up any proof?

Less than $800 between Invoice and MSRP

There is not a single car on our lot that even comes close to $2500 much less $3500.
