Members,
I am the first customer in line. at on the 5 Colorado dealerships. I placed a $500 deposit down. Was notified that I could pick my colors, etc. and yesterday when I went in to do so the dealer told me that the parent dealership is considering a mark up at all their dealerships of nearly 4K!!! :banghead: :brentil: :confused:

Greed, even though some will pay is not a good thing. This could have been told to the buyers a while back... I understand that Saturn reccomends that dealers use MSRP, and that each dealer runs "their" business. But come on Saturn/dealer this just doesn't feel "reasonable and prudent" :rolleyes:

Any body else hearing about such a mark up???

i'm sure the thinking is that if I go away quietly, they'll just as easily sell it to another for a bigger buck. I'm not that type, and I know an awful lot of potential buyers.:thumbs:

Dealer mark-up

I'm lucky, my dealer is selling at MSRP. I think when we start receiving Skys and actual cash is laid out then we should post who is up charging. I'm in the market for a Vue next year and I will go back to my dealer since he was fair but had he tacked on another 2 or 3000 then I would go elswhere. My recommendation is to go elsewhare and find a fair dealer. He still has to service it regardless of where you buy it and he makes money whether it's from you or a warranty claim. So don't let him give you that crap about not buying from him because of service. Good luck!

My dealer here, is charging me the sticker price....And I'am the first at this dealer, No mark up, not a good way to do buisness. But it is my understanding that some dealers here will be putting them up to the highest bidder, which is dead wrong in my opinion. I must say I have bought 2 saturns from this dealer as well as sending another 3 buyers to them so that may have helped.

This is my first experience with Saturn and my dealership said they know I could make $5,000 if I sold this car the next day after I receive it...They know better...That is MY CAR!! So I know they are not shafting me. This will go a long way for them, because I will go out of my way to get people to buy from them. I will ONLY buy a car from them in the future...they know how to value a customer!!! Tell your dealer he is an A-hole! I hope he reads this!!
