I love my Saturn Ion! It was actually a graduation gift from my parents - graduating a semester early from a very expensive private university actually cost less than buying a new small car, so my dad says I saved him money :-)
My college roommate and I went to test-drive a Saturn (looking at various models). We got there about fifteen minutes before the dealership opened, so when we walked up a salesman greeted us and said to take our time walking around and looking at the cars, and he would be out when we were ready. He answered all our questions, let us test-drive the car, and sent us home with all the pamphets and brochures.
Here's the thing that knocks me over - we were very up-front that we wouldn't be buying from him. We were looking at the cars, but would be buying one from a dealership in Wisconsin instead. The salesman wasn't deterred - he said he was so proud of his line of Saturn cars, he was just happy to see another one sold anywhere! I guess it all comes out in the wash - maybe someone from Wisconsin bought their car in North Carolina instead . . .
Advice to anyone planning to buy a car who doesn't want to deal with negotiating: The Motley Fool (wonderful, helpful, and funny financial advice duo) has a step-by-step process for car buying that is just too good not to learn. Basically, you do as much research as you can, ask several dealerships what's the lowest price they can do, and then pick one. All without setting foot on the lot or giving them the imformation (ammunition?) to call you back and harass you. I haven't tried it (and I'll be sticking with Saturns!), but it's definitely worth a read.
