Default Saturn was about the great employees

As Saturn gets ready to close its doors its goodbye to some of the best staffs ever assembled to sell cars in North America. Our family has owned six over the last eight years, and to be honest, it was really never the cars that drew us in and back...it was the staff....the service...the friendly personal touch that existed at our dealership. Nothing was ever a hassle when it came to our cars at Saturn and we were the envy of our friends who hated going to their dealers. Thanks to all of you who were true Saturn employees and provided the real Saturn service in sales and in mechanical.

Those of us who built Saturn from 1990-2007 in Spring Hill, TN would like to thank all of you who purchased them.

Very well said and I totally agree. For years several friends who drive BMW, Mercedes, and other luxury brands were amazed that Saturn treated their customers so well.

I'm happy to have supported Saturn and used their dealers for service and repairs since they opened to until they closed.

Will always have fond memories of homecoming, owner workshops, weekend BBQ's, send offs, complimentary car washes, car birthday cards, gift baskets, and all the other wonderful touches they have done that separated the brand and employees from all the rest.

Honestly now I have no clue what car brand to support, but I doubt whatever one I get I'll have the same fondness for as I did for Saturn.

My '97 SL2 gave me 220,000 miles and looked good until the end, thanks in part to the good 'ol plastic body panels! Great car for the money, and I still miss it!

I like my Subaru Legacy, and I've noted that Subaru's market niche and its recent advertising is not unlike that of the old Saturn. But unfortunately, Subaru seems to be going in the wrong direction now. The new Legacy is ugly and numerous features have been deleted in the name of cost cutting. I'm very disappointed in the 2010 Legacy, and if I can afford it I'd like to buy something like a BMW 328xi when it comes time to replace my 2007 Legacy (but that's a long way off).

Best dealership experience I ever had. I hope someone picks up that great aspect of Saturn.

agreed! Here's hoping that most of the dealers are able to find some company to take them on, weather it be Kia, Nissan, Toyota, heck even FORD???? I would take a good bet that my dealer would be looking at Ford since they are in a city of 65K with no Ford dealer at all. This in a city with all other GM brands sold in America minus Hummer and SAAB, Kia, Subaru, Nissan, the next big three, well I guess you could switch Subaru with Toyota. Luckily the Evansville one was a co-branded with other GM brands in house, but the Terre Haute one, owned by the same folks was just a Saturn dealership. With by far the friendliest staff in the car business. So much so that I would drive an extra 125 miles round trip just to go to Saturn of Terre Haute. I will say this though, GM Kills Saturn, then GM Loses my business. This was a huge stab in the heart for myself as a Saturn owner in the family since 1992. Personally and I am not a ford fan by anymeans, but my next vehicle will either be a Ford, or an import. no money of mine goes to Government motors or Idiot Chrysler group. Not now, not ever again.

I totally agree. My wife asked about Kias; I just don't know about that. Maybe look at VW - anything but GM. *******s.
