2008 AURA XE
Default Re: List of open and closed dealerships

Here in Minnesota/Western Wisconsin it is a little confusing. Saturn of St. Paul had (4) dealerships - White Bear Lake, Inver Grove Heights, Mounds View and Oakdale. The Oakdale dealership closed 11-24-08.

Saturn of Minneapolis (and Rochester) had (5) dealerships - Bloomington, Brooklyn Park, Golden Valley and Rochester. All are still open.

The rumor is that only a few of these dealerships will transition to a new line of cars. Saturn St. Paul - White Bear Lake is currently scheduled to switch to used cars only and service for Saturn loyalists (who obviously will have to take their warranty work to a GM dealer elsewhere).

I received a flyer in the mail yesterday from Saturn of Cleveland which consists of Saturn of Chagrin, North Olmstead & Middleburg Heights stating that they'll be open until the 2010 shutdown and then after that they're going to try to pickup another GM brand to keep those locations open. Saturn of Mentor which was part of Saturn of Cleveland has been shutdown and converted into their Nissan branch.

It's good to hear that the three remaning dealers are staying open since there are a lot of good people employed there. Hopefully they can secure another brand to keep them going after the 2010 shutdown date.


Forgot to mention, Saturn of Cleveland is on Twitter @SaturnCleveland, and Facebook. On their Twitter feed they confirmed that Saturn of Mentor was consolidated into Saturn of Chagrin.

Saturn of Watertown, CT, and Saturn of Danbury are still open. Not sure of plans for Milford, or Fairfield. These are probably the oldest Dealerships in CT, which may show why they lasted. Only four Saturn Dealers in CT out of ten from years ago.

First remember dealerships are franchises. GM/Saturn does not close dealerships, owners close dealerships. GM/Saturn only can revoke the dealership contract to do business as a brand. Owners can and do bring in new brands or act unbranded selling used cars.

Second, GM is currently planing to support the Saturn dealer network until October 2010.

with that said, I would like to start a list of the remaining 350 some Saturn dealerships and keep track of which are open and which are closed. If you are not sure about your local dealer, please call. I have seen or heard of several people falsely assume their dealership was closed.

Southside Chicago Dealers- as of 10/28/09
Saturn of Downers Grove, Saturn of Joliet, and Saturn of Northwest Indiana are all closing their doors Friday, Oct. 30th. Saturn of Tinley Park, Saturn of Oaklawn, and Saturn of South Holland are all sister stores with the three that are closing and are staying open for the time being.

Saturn of Dundee, Saturn of Lake Barrington, and Saturn of Elmhurst are all closed, they were sister stores with Saturn of Schaumburg, which to my knowage is still open.

Saturn of North Aurora is closed, it was a sister store with Saturn of Naperville, which i know for a fact is still open.

Saturn of Countryside is closed and has been for several years (only reason I add this is because I had a customer today who thought it was still open)

Saturn of Chicago closed last year.

I know nothing about Saturn of Glenview, or any dealer on the north side of Chicago

Please add to this list with acurate info about your local dealer.

P.S. Charlie, can you please consider stickying this thread?



SATURN of Sprinfield,IL,..... set to close within a month of this post,... inventory is less than 10 modles,..

Just saw an article, that Saturn of Route 422 in Northern Ohio is now closed.

This dealership was where my 94 SC1 was delivered to originally. My car was a demo model that was then shipped to Saturn of Kings Automall, which was purchased by the couple that I bought it from....

Well at least some people got letters from their dealership. I need a part and I just called 'Saturn of Schaumburg' IL. (where I bought my car) and all I got was a recorded message saying that they are closed. The final kick in the ass! Not even a stinking letter. Bunch of creeps!

Saturn of Madison is closing by February 2010. Service and parts will be moved to the Buick West dealership.

Not sure what the status is of the Boucher Saturn dealers (Milwaukee, Greenfield, Waukesha, though Racine has apparently already closed.)

I called the next closest dealer to me (Saturn of Glenview IL.) and the girl I talked to claims they aren't closing. They are staying open. I asked, "As what?" She said, "As Saturn." I have no idea what that means, so when I go there for a part, I'll have to ask a manager.

She probably meant they were staying as a Saturn dealership until the end of Saturn.

One more to add not listed...

Saturn of Chapel Hill (Cuyahoga Falls, OH) -- I was told that the service dept. will remain open indefinitely but will not be able to do warranty work past Oct. 2010. The sales dept. will close soon however.

I do not know about the dealer in the chain, Saturn of Belden Village.

I just heard from a e-mail, that Saturn of Gaithersburg will no longer do non-warranty or maintenace work on effective December 21 when Kia of Silver Spring opens up. Kia of Silver Spring will do Saturn maintenance and non-warranty work. The Saturn of Gaithersburg service department employees will be moving to Kia of Silver Spring around that time.

Saturn of Augusta (GA) looks like it shut down today.

I drove by it this morning and there were about a dozen used cars on the lot with a handful of new Saturns for sale. When I drove by it on the way home, the lot was completely empty.

Talked to an employee the other day at Saturn of Greenfield (Wisconsin) when I was in for service and he said they're supposed to switch over to a Nissan dealership once Saturn completely winds down.

Their Saturn inventory is already so scarce they've got a use Chevy Suburban sitting on the showroom floor.

Oh, and the building is crapping out on them as the skylight in the roof began leaking and dripping all over the chair next to me. Good thing I sat one seat over or I'd had another shower for the day.

Not sure what will become of the other Boucher dealerships (Saturn of Milwaukee, Saturn of Waukesha and Saturn of Racine which someone mentioned might already be closed).

Nissan at the remaining two? Remains to be seen.
