1997 Saturn SL 2.4 twin cam from North America
My Saturn, my car, my problem!
5 new tires needed in the first year.
Bolts holding rear axle sheared causing tire mounts to buckle.
Structural fault in windshield design, have replaced 5 windshield in 5 years.
All motors in electric windows have ceased to work.
Moon roof leaked several times flooding interior of car, dealership's solution was to remove the fuse to the moonroof and no longer use it.
Engine mounts collapsed.
Brake disks pitted and rusted after 36,000 miles, needed replacement.
Service engine light is constantly on, no detectable problems.
Lots of oil added frequently.
Coolant fluid seems to be mysteriously evaporating.
It rides like an all terrain vehicle, even on smooth surfaces.
Country music blew out 4 factory speakers.
The car drives like a tank, sounds like a tank, but I doubt a tank would require this much repair.
I wouldn't even give this car away in fear of it tarnishing MY name!!!
Don't waste money, effort, or most importantly your time on these cars or this company.
I agree with the previous statements about the customer service. The pneumatic devices must be used to fill the employees with air instead of the tools.
You come into customer service with a problem and leave with a headache and a multiple problems.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Right on, correct and to the point.

There is no question that these are deliberate falsehoods, or the result of poor maintenance on the part of the "owner." This car is the first new car I've ever owned, and other than routine maintenance, and a faulty dome light, it has been flawless. It has over 75,000 miles on it. I have had at least three 20-year old used cars that had far fewer problems than the reviewer had.
