Yeah I do. I've also noticed that saturns here at work park next to me, as well in other places too.

I'll park next to other Saturns, as long as the owner of the other one doesn't mind hiking to the building or whatever. I prefer to take up the remote spots.

I park as far away from any cars in a lot as possible. Want to keep the car in the best condition as long as I can, so I dont mind the walk.

As long as they also happen to be in the back of the lot I will, since that is the only place that I'll park. Polymer or not, I still don't want scratches on my paint , plus the exercise is good.

Yes but not for any emotional reasons. I just figure that polymer on polymer has less of a chance of scratching my car. More important though is staying away from big doored oversize pickups, already banged up vehicles and cars that look like they are driven by senior citizens.

I used to, but not anymore. I don't usually drive my car on the road. Occasionally, I do park next to a Saturn with my van..

I always thought it was funny that people will spend hours walking through a mall but drive around the parking lot for 15 minutes looking for a spot up front ..... if I don't see a "good" spot on my first pass, I'll park next to a Saturn if I see one. Usually when I do park next to another Saturn, I'll come out to find another one parked next to us.

Yes. I also park far away from the entrances, but if I see a parked Saturn looking for someone to talk to, I park my QC next to it so they can speak Saturnese.
