Default Saturn of Smithtown/Hempsted Closing?

Do anyone know when the two Saturn's on Long Island Smithtown and Hempsted are closing so we can take our cars to other GM dealers for Warrenty Work?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

While neither of these retailers have much new vehicle inventory left, they remain busy with service and warranty work, as well as CPO sales. This may be enough to keep them afloat until GM cuts off Saturn support completely.

I couldn't give you a timetable for the closing of either retailer, but expect it to be done sometime next year, as early as spring.

At this point Saturn retailers will do whatever benefits them the most. They were blind sighted by the Penske deal and now need to do damage control.

Everyone needs to keep in mind how GM's decision to close Saturn has affected them. I'll give GM back the same support they gave Saturn...

Exactly. Once GM finally washes their hands clean of Saturn, Smith Haven can fall back on Fiatsler, Mitsu and Mazda. I don't know who owns Saturn of Hempstead today, but when SoH first opened in the early '90s, they were run by a family better known for selling high-end brands like Mercedes, Audi, Porsche and Lexus.
