Back in the day Saturn was a unique company, when it wasn't completely sucked into the brand-engineered crap that GM puts out. Hopefully it goes back in it's original direction once more.

not really, Aura/Sky aren't Imports, VUE is a gray area, Astra was Imported but they never imported any for 2009 because the 2008's didn't sell.

I was thinking more along the lines of imports south korean renaults

Uhhhh did u fall asleep for the last couple years and miss the whole thing about Penske being in charge of the whole SMART car craze all over the country?

Penske’s United Auto Group Inc. will be responsible for picking potential dealers and developing and maintaining a Smart vehicle dealership network throughout the U.S. and Puerto Rico. It will focus mainly on highly populated areas and have 30 to 50 dealerships, Penske said.
If I'm correct I think he owns the Smart dealership on Telegraph. Not 100% sure on that one though.

Penske bought up quite a few dealers in SE Michigan. Rinke, a few Scion dealerships, etc. He has 146 across the country.
