Default Another Closure

saturn of santa maria california closed and the group that owns them is going to move their honda store into the saturn facility and turn the old honda facility into a used car lot and says no one will lose their jobs. so while the closing of the saturn store isn't a suprise, it is good news to see they are trying to keep the jobs for those hard working folks.

You can't blame a dealer for wanting to close a Saturn store - their future looks pretty bleak. I just read that Lithia closed their Saturn store in Eugene.

Concerning the dealer in Santa Maria, you've got to give them credit for closing a store but keeping the jobs in place. I hope their transition to a used car sales facility works out for them.

What's with Saturn and those ridiculous commercials? Doesn't GM have a better way to spend our tax dollars?

Well, thanks to Tivo I haven't watched any of the Saturn commercials.

But now you've piqued my curiousity and I'll have to pay attention and watch the next one I see.

yeah, saturn is all over the tv ads here in california, ironically, this dealer that just closed the saturn store had been running ads that business is great so come in and buy a new saturn, i think the ad said sales were up 38%
