Just thought I'd finally get around to registering and posting, rather than just lurking

I'm a Saturn salesman from White Plains, NY, and a Saturn enthusiast.

I didn't start out that way. Way back in 1991 or so, I lived in Denver, and when it was time to get a new car, I decided to check out the new Saturns... the idea of a brand-new car company with no-haggle appealed to me.

Well, the no-haggle, no-pressure turned out to be very pressure-filled. I left the dealership without a Saturn, and a bad taste in my mouth. I'm not the kind of guy who responds well to the Hard Sell.

Years later, I'm in need of a second car, and working a sales job that has nothing to do with cars... I find a used Saturn on the internet, and it looks decent, and so I decide to give Saturn another try.

My second experience with a Saturn dealership was so good, I hit them up for a job after buying the car, and now here I am.

By the way, I love the car. It's a 2000 LS2, and it's become my primary vehicle (except on summer weekends - the other car's a convertible - when will that SKY finally come out?).

When my daughter inherits it in a few years, I'm probably going to buy a new VUE, or if they ever make it, a SKY.


Anyway, that's my story and I'm sticking with it.

Nice to meet all of you.

If anyone has any questions that I might be able to help out with, particularly with the new cars ('03, '04) let me know, and I'll see what I can dig up.

Regards,
Mark

Nope. I've read about what's to come, of course, but I haven't seen interior photos yet.
