Images Are In!!! (or at least "closer") - Page 2 - Saturn Sky Forums: Saturn Sky Forum
Getting Your Saturn Sky Forum for discussing the process of ordering/tracking/buying your Saturn Sky. Ever wonder what a VOMS is? How about an "image", or how cars are allocated? The answer probably lies within.

I wonder if most dealers will just sell their demo right out of the gate. Why have one in the showroom if the entire years allocation is sold out? General mgr said as images come in - they will call following the order of those with deposits. Oh, by the way, all cars to be sold at MSRP. Thank God!
According to My dealer they cannot sell the Demo, It is still property of Gm and not for retail sale...

We sat down and went through the order process: picking color, oprtions, etc. Priced out at $26675 - no markup. I was the first to place my order (and I use that term loosely) with him. His allocation is 3-4 per month.

When the first customer image is ready, it'll be mine but, I ordered the auto tranny and there might be a delay for that option so I guess I should say I'll bethe first auto trans image to go. I can live with that. My sales manager said once the image goes in, he will keep me informed every step of the way, and I beleive him!

My experience with my dealer - Saturn of Concord, CA - was the same as my last three Saturn I purchased. Easy, honest, pleasant. I showed him this forum and he bookmarked it on the spot!

ordered:
Silver Graphite
black/red
single CD with Monsoon
chrome wheels
spoiler (? need to see one first)
The dealer I using is in santa rosa, they also own vacaville and fairfield saturn dealerships. Concord is less than an hour away so hopefully they follow the same path as Saturn of concord, if they don't at least now I know of dealership close by I can use instead. Thanks for the info.

Yep, you are correct. Is what some call a CRUSH car. Once it has served its purpose, it will be picked up by GM and CRUSHED...

What a waste...

We've found a lot of slaeable Solstices that were never sold ended up in junk yards and are being parted out now.
