The Saturn dealership is located one exit east (inland) from I-5 (San Diego FWY) at the Oceanside/Carlsbad City lines of HWY 78 at the west-end of El Camino North Center.

From I-5 exit east (inland) on to HWY 78. You will see the Saturn sign on the left side of HWY 78. Take the Jefferson exit, go North you will see the dealership on the right.

The chargers (2) are located on front side of the store, the other side, across from Big 5, Mervyns and etc. To get to the front, turn right on Vista Way and then onto the shopping center access road. You will see the chargers half way down the lot on the right.

They presently do NOT lock the gates to the lot where the chargers are. I was there until 9:45 PM or so. The manager on duty told me they never lock the gates to that lot.

There are lots of places within walking distance -- although getting across Jefferson on foot is a bit difficult if you head in that direction.

Here is a list of places I wrote down:

Across Jefferson:

  • Sub Marina
  • Super Crown Books
  • McDonald's
  • Burger King
  • Appleby's
  • Mimi's Cafe (I ate there -- pretty good)
  • Einstein's Bagels
  • Juice Station
  • Starbucks Coffee

Across from the other side of the dealership (the side where the chargers are): (This street must have a name, but it doesn't have one on my map, and I did not write the name down.)

  • Outback Steakhouse
  • Stuart Anderson's
  • Chuck E. Cheese
  • Toys R Us
  • Mervyn's
  • Radio Shack
  • Big 5
  • Texaco car wash

One of the sales folks told me there was a movie theater within walking distance as well. I did not see it, and didn't get directions to it.
