Same Price at each dealer?

    Hi...I have a question. I'm interested in getting a new VUE. I've never
    owned a Saturn vehicle. With their "no haggle" policy, does this mean that
    every Saturn dealer in my area will want the same amount for the exact same
    vehicle, or will prices differ from dealer to dealer?

  2. Most dealers charge the full MSRP, but there's a lot of wiggle room on the
    bottom line if you have a trade. Some Saturn dealers will inflate your
    trade-in value giving you above book value, so they can still claim (wink,
    wink) that they don't haggle.

  4. I don't know how it is in the rest of the country, but the
    newspaper ads for Saturn in my area (Northern California)
    have a list of discounts, that conceivably, if someone could
    qualify for all of them, would take $6500 off the MSRP.

    $2000 rebate (in lieu of Saturn financing)
    $ 750 college grad allowance (graduated within 6 months with a job
    offer letter)
    $ 750 military purchase program (enlisted or retired from any branch of
    the military or active reserves)
    $1000 down payment assistance (must finance with Saturn)
    $1000 market adjustment (L series only)
    $1000 Olds Loyalty Rebate (owner of an Oldsmobile purchased new between
    1996 and December 15, 2001)

    So a recent graduate who had a job offer letter but instead
    joined the military and presently owns an Oldsmobile would
    get the best deal, $5500 off an L series, $4500 off everything
    else, but everyone gets some of the discounts. Also you
    can use GM card savings, for up to another $1000 off.

    There may not be any haggling, but that does not mean that
    you have to pay MSRP, or that the dealers all charge the
    same. The dealers are allowed to adjust prices to meet
    "market conditions," and Saturn dealers have the highest
    margins of any non-luxury nameplate so there is a lot of
    room for the dealer to adjust prices to market conditions.
