I don't blame the poor guy for wanting to add another manufacturer's products. The past months have been a prolonged & uncertain time for a lot of Saturn dealers who are still hanging on. Not exactly "exciting times".

That might be the Kia Soul.

It is the 2010 Penske Saturn Sole (a badge engineered 2010 Kia Soul).

Considering the state of Saturn, it's a great idea.

Look what hapened to the 3 Saturn stores in New Orleans. The New Orleans area used to be one of Saturn's best markets. All 3 stores are closed. One is now selling KIA's, the other is selling Audi's.

I like the look of Soul... The hamster commercial is great. One with every option, fully loaded barely touches $20k.

I understand the reasoning behind this all to well but it still upsets me. I bought my first Saturn at this dealership in 1992. It was a silver SL2 and in many ways it was the best vehicle Iíve ever owned to date. I ran that little beast for 275,000 miles and with exception of the all too familiar oil burning issue; it really didnít cost me a dime . Through that time Saturn of Denville was always my choice for service and I found that the folks there couldnít do enough for you. But then again those were the days of early Saturn ownership and they really were a different kind of Car Company back then.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
