Methinks GM closed the deal with Penske. I guess we'll find out in a couple of days.

Speculation and slander. Someone's in trouble.

I'll bet you're right.

IIRC, they said a 3rd quarter closing. Well, we're in the 3rd quarter now. Unless it's site news from Charlie, I'd guess Saturn LLC is back up and running.

There was apparently an article inth e toronto sun wheels section that my friend read, still trying to find it. But Penske said to watch out for mid july as there will be ahuge inventory clearance. Im currently looking at a vue hybrid so I hope there's something around the corner.

I'm still not comfortable with this anti haggle approach though that the dealers have. WIll have to wait and see on Wed.

I think the deal with Penske is done, too.

Otherwise bargain basement pricing on Astras to move the metal? A co-worker of mine bought a 3-door XR and has been pleased with it so far.

If indeed the Penske deal is closed on Wednesday then I have a feeling that Canadian dealers are not included. I say that because as far as I know there has still been absolutely no news from Penske to Canadian dealers about being included or not.

I searched the Internet and I find two things that could be a possibility. The Sale of Opel to Magna. Read the story here....

http://www.thestreet.com/story/10519...al-report.html

The second one is from GM inside news. GM will soon announce the future of the Spring Hill Plant.

Wow, lots of interesting responses and speculation to the front page "teaser"!! One quick update, because my original post may have caused some issues: this announcement has nothing to do with the Penske's pending acquisition of Saturn. Details will be posted 2pm EST on Wednesday. Stay tuned.

Thanks for your support,
Charlie
