If you had "bought" the car, drove it awhile and really didn't like it, that's one thing. I mean, that's bound to happen to maybe a few folks. In that case... the dealership would even "take it back".

To have not taken delivery and to start soliciting buyers... well, that's bound to stir up a fuss for those who are patiently waiting for their own. I'm SURE the dealer would also like you to just say "No sir, I don't like it", so they can offer it to other people who have put their name on the waiting list AT THAT DEALERSHIP. The dealer still has the option of customizing this car to suit the next buyer, versus the "as-is" deal you are offering.

Even with the clear profit motive laid out on the table (and upping the price because you can appeal to the *desire factor* this car elicits), I feel that this group is probably not the best place to make your appeal.

I'm just speaking for myself here, but I'd personally not consider buying it unless it came from a dealer at this point. (Yes, I own stock, but I am also not a greed Buy/Sell person)

so let me get this straight....
a dealer can buy and sell cars at a higher price.... and it's acceptable... an individual does it... and it's a no no??
come on folks... life is one big business transaction...... there's nothin wrong with me buying and selling something for profit.. it's all about supply and demand....


my intentions never was to buy and sell off the Sky.. i was excited about this car the minute i saw a snapshot of it online... so i went to get one... readin all the entries on here.. of course majority of them will be positive feedbacks... but i ventured off onto other Saturn sites.. and behold... it was like a pandora's box opening.... the complaints about the quality and service of Saturn outweigh the goods...
believe it or not.. a 30K investment is STILL a 30K investment.... no one in their right mind would invest that much into something they just "like"....

Moved to the for sale section, remember from this point on this sub section has policies against throwing cold water on a sale thread and derailing the topic.

Save the Kappa!
A grassroots movement to save the Kappa platform based cars.
It's not just a car, it's a lifestyle and a community.

Since this thread has long been "derailed," the issue is not that dealers can do it but you can't.... The point was that we complain about dealers doing it and you are doing it too. That was the irony.

That's all..... Hope you sell your car to the highest bidder (to bring the thread back on point).
