Saturn and Toyota in 2009

I've previously mentioned our Saturn SL2.

Earlier this year there were plans to transfer the Saturn brand to the Penske Automotive Group, but those plans have failed. I'm not sure if the brand is now mortally wounded or whether there are backup plans. Perhaps I'll read the whole Saturn story in a book someday, or someone will make a movie.

My local Saturn dealership has closed; the nearest one is now in Salem. But the local dealer's master mechanic and repair manager moved together to a local Toyota dealer, where they still do repair work for many of the county's Saturn owners. But Toyota is not now a healthy brand either.
