Default No small car for Saturn for 2 years ??????

Penske Saturn will initially be made up of the Vue, Outlook & Aura for the next couple of years. According to the deal the sky and Astra are gone. Penske said today that at the end of the GM run (2-3 years) he'll add new vehicles....does this mean 2 years with no small car ??? Any dealer will tell you they need a competitive small car.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

You know,

Im sure Penske will do a much better job at getting the right cars for us, but Gm has screwed this up so much It doesnt suprise me. When I first saw the Astra I wasnt too crazy about it at the dealer I work at, but when I drove it I was more impressed with it. It had its quirks and all, but it was a decent car. When customers asked when it was coming, It didnt arrive on time, and by the time we got a boatload they sat for months. I dont remember seeing any advertising. As with the Ion, by the time they decided to kill it, we sold so many that we bought others from other dealers. Unfortunately we will lose to the competition without a small car. You would think If Gm was gonna end Saturn they should have done It with a bang. Just my opinion.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

I think we'll see an announcement of a new small car from Penske (Saturn) very soon.

Canada needs a small car, but it is not as big a issue in the states. Look at the percentages of what is sold in the Saturn stores, VUEs and Auras and Outlooks. It is the 51 Canadian stores that need the small car, but in the big picture it will have to wait, where all of Canada, even though I think they have more market share, but as a whole it is a small piece of the puzzle. Plus the stores in the states have about a years supply of 2008 Astra anyway. With all the store closing there will be a whole wack of vehicles available in the pool. Canada will just have to wait til that is cleaned up and til the US dealers begin crying for small cars. Did Marx404 jump ship to a Chevy store, some of his post sound like it.
