My money says that it will be all three combined that will move the cars and that it will be offered by mid-August.

Supplier pricing is not new, nor is the low finance deal. The discounts are not much of a discount when it is either a 0% or the discount amount. When all three are lumped together, that'll be worth talking about.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

With regards to supplier pricing plus $2000 off the MSRP of a 2008 Saturn Astra, I don't think that would be quite enough of a discount considering the vehicles are now almost two model years old and the vehicle is no longer offered in the United States. Consider if the vehicle is totaled before the customer gets the car home (not likely, but a possibility). Depending on the customer's down payment, he or she would probably have to cough up some cash to cover the cost of the vehicle once the insurance company determines that vehicle's value. Add gap coverage to sweeten the deal.

My guess is that there would be some room for negotiations with the Astra.

Too bad the Astra never really took off. I test drove an XR model when they first arrived at my local Saturn retailer and I really liked the car. It handled well, was comfortable, and looked great!

From talking to my Saturn dealer and a saleman at the local Chevy dealer, the Astra will be sold thru Buick. BUT...hopefully Canada will get Opel dealers and we can buy all those other neat Opel models....O.K....I'm dreaming...but you never know!

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
