Analysis: Saturn Employee Pricing Presents Good Prices, No Haggling

Quote:
David Thomas from Cars.com's Kicking Tires blog analyzed Saturn's new Employee Discount promotion and concluded that the company is offering some pretty impressive deals. According to Thomas' calculations, buyers can save up to $4,691 on a 2008 Aura XR, $4,158 on a Outlook AWD XR, and $3,395 on a Vue XE... just to name a few models. Read the excerpt from his report, and then click through to read the full article that also includes the details behind his calculations.

Why does Saturn stick with the no haggling price still? Seriously, the new Saturns are no different than any other GMs. Give it up already, leave the different kind of company methods with the previous "different kind of cars."

I would guess that if Saturn gave up no-haggle pricing they would also raise the MSRP so that in most cases buyers could haggle down the bottom line price to approximately the same level it is now. I never minded haggling with dealers but I always did resent the time it took to get to the price I thought fair. A no-haggle price that actually reflects the market value of a vehicle saves everyone time and aggravation.

saturn still wants t hold on to what made them. people forget saturn started what all others now try copy. saturns beliefs were if you lowered a price to one you cheated evryone else. all should pay the same. also treat people fair and with dignity.will it continue? it probably cant as saturn will start combining with other makes and sold on the same showfloor as others like gmc pontiac buick.
