Default Saturn's Last Day

Motors Holding Company (ie: The “Bad” GM) has announced Saturn’s official last day.

It will be October 31, 2010. That is the last day that retailers can submit warranty claims or get any support whatsoever from Saturn.

Now, this does not mean that your local Saturn retailer will be open that long. On the contrary, I would expect that most if not all stores will shut down much sooner. See, there will be no new Saturns. There will be no 2010 models. What a retailer has on their lot right now is all they will have.

If retailers have been losing money month in and month out, I can’t imagine they will want to stay open. They will find homes for their remaining inventory (both new cars and parts) and call it quits.

I don't know of any retailers that were given this notice by either GM or Saturn today. Actually, the silence has been deafening. My own facility is still open, still servicing, and still selling. Most of us have been making our money off of used inventory and will continue with business as usual. Please let me know if you get any official updates.
Many thanks,
Saturn of Cary

Jill, This information was given to the retailers today via a conference call.
Rethink your Saturn. Accessorize.
