Default 2009 Aura - when available?

Just curious when the 2009 Aura will be available for purchase from dealers? The www.saturn.com website still has the 2008 listed. Thanks.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Default Re: 2009 Aura - when available?

Our local Saturn dealer has over 10 on their lot, and are allowing the rebates - incentives & X-plan to be used for the 2009's as well as the remaining 2008's. All the 2009 units on the lot are XR's, pretty well loaded with stickers over $25K. A few XR 4 cylinders in the mix, but most are 3.6L units. Best luck.

Thumbs Up Re: 2009 Aura - when available?

They seem to be showing up all around the country now. I saw three 33 MPG Auras on one of my local retailers' lots earlier this week.

What is the X-plan, and what rebates are available on the 09s?

As they're just showing up, nothing. Particularly because it's more of a concern to clear the 2008's still sitting around first via rebates and financing.

If anything, I'd guess maybe (completely up in the air) some kind of a $500 bonus or conquest on new 2009's before long, but there's no real idea. Speculation doesn't work either because dealers hear nothing until the very minute incentives are released.

X-plan refers to something with Ford, I believe, but here it would be the GM Supplier discount if you're a GM supplier. Same kind of deal for each manufacturer, but I think someone confused the name.

2008 AURA XE
Default Re: 2009 Aura - when available?

X-Plan is the industry generic name for the "Supplier Discount Plan". If the company you work for (or sometime your credit union) is a supplier to GM, Ford, etc; you get a discounted price - slightly above what GM employees pay - and you keep the rebates, etc. For my 2008 Aura back in May, the discount was $914 off the sticker price plus the $2000 rebate (XE 4 cylinder). So my out the door price not including tax and license was $17,481 on a sticker of $20,395. So, check to see if anyone in your family works for a company that qualifies (I can get up to 3 GM supplier discount/year for myself or a relative), or if your credit union membership gets you the discount. Like I said above, our local dealer is extending the rebates and X-plan incentives to the new 2009 models on the lot too. That's a deal in my mind!
