Default What happens to inventory that Saturn buys back

Earlier, I posted a news article that showed 2 profitable dealers making the decision to close. As per the manager of one of the stores, she said, "Saturn is buying back their inventory". Does that include the 2008's as well? What happens to that inventory? If this is the agreement, to allow dealers to close and Saturn to buyback inventory, where do those cars go? Will they be auctioned or what?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

as long as they are new dealers can still get them. 08s are ok for dealers because they have nice discounts and are easier too sell.

08's are ok if you are in nov or dec, anyone with 08's now is selling at a lost even with the incentives.
