Default Saturn Dealers

Is Saturn going to exand its dealerships to take advantage of the hot products they have now.

Seems like I read that Saturn would be paired with Cadillac and Saab dealerships.

I want one but the nearest dealer is an hour away.

thanx stillen

I sure hope so. There are less Saturn dealers near me than Volvo or Audi.
All the Caddy dealers near me are paired with Chevy.
I would think that some of the stand alone Buick, Pontiac or GMC dealers could be converted to Saturn as those dealers combine forces.
There are 2 Saab dealers near me. 1 is stand alone and very small, Saturn wouldn't likely fit. The other is also a Lincoln dealer, if they sell 100 cars per week, 85 will be Town Cars and the other 15 will be other Lincolns, Mercurys and Saabs. The airport drivers are big business for them.

The nearest Saturn retailer is nearly two hours from me. I don't think any will open nearer anytime soon. I live in rural south Arkansas.

There's a Chevy dealer in my town (actually, it's about 100 yards from my house). They have 24 new cars in inventory, and I'd be surprised if they sold more than 1-2 a week. I'm talking to them now about doing some work on my VUE.

Past Saturns: 97 SL2, 01 SC2, 04 VUE, 08 Astra, 02 L200.

I believe the dealership mix GM is going after is:
- Cadillac, Saab, Hummer combined
- Pontiac, Buick, GMC combined
- Chevrolet standalone
- Saturn standalone

It makes sense, if you think about it.

I am just hesitant about buying a car that warranty work has to be done at a Saturn dealership.

although I have not driven one yet it is between the Aura , 07 G6 GT sedan and lastly 07 Altima sedan.
